So Bad It’s Good: The Proudly Formulaic, Brazenly Homoerotic ‘Tango & Cash’

I’ve been going through a bunch of old Kurt Russell movies lately, and boy does this one stand out. “Tango & Cash” is amazing fun in retrospect, particularly in just how clueless and out of touch it all is. I heartily recommend tracking it down, DVDs of it tend to float around all over the place.

Bad movies are not a simple matter. There are nearly as many categories of terrible movies as there are for great ones: there are films that are insultingly stupid (Batman & Robin), unintentionally funny (Birdemic), unintentionally, painfully unfunny (White Chicks), so bad they’re depressing (Transformers), and so on. But the most rewarding terrible movies are those we know as “so bad they’re good” — entertaining in their sheer incompetence, best braved in numbers, where the ham-fisted dramatics and tin-eared dialogue become fodder for years of random quotes and inside jokes. And in this spirit, Flavorwire brings you the latest installment in our monthly So Bad It’s Good feature: the greased-up ‘80s buddy cop epic Tango & Cash.
