stupid movie concept that turned out good or great

so what are some stupid movie concepts that turned out good or even great

first one that comes to mind for me is Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer. i actually enjoyed that movie. of course it's not a classic or a master piece but it was very entertaining.


another one i think of is Bill and Ted - take two stupid teen guys and give them a time traveling phone booth so they can save the future by passing a history exam

Bubba Ho-Tep

Never saw it but people loved "sharknado" Phone Post 3.0

Hot Tub Time Machine
Dont Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead
The Last Starfighter
(all) Planet of the Apes
Killer Klowns from Outter Space

Misedukatd - Bubba Ho-Tep

based on a sucessful short story by Joe R. Landsdale, though.

Big Trouble in Little China is the first thing that leaps to mind.

Phone Booth

 

I remember thinking "how can a movie with a guy in a phone booth the entire time be any good?" After I was like "Oh, that's how"
