"Basically, it's a big party, and everyone's going to be there... and it's the worst party you ever went to."
—Analogy of trope by its coiner, Craig Johnson
On occasion, there exists a film employing an All-Star Cast, spearheaded by a cadre of renowned auteur directors and/or writers whose fingertips practically expel genius. A film that was seemingly set in motion to be birthed into the world by deities of cinema themselves, that is surely destined to become a critic darling and box office sensation, to be showered in nominations and to take home all the awards, to imprint a mark on history that shall never fade, that will undoubtedly blow your mind into the next millennia, leaving it in eternally astonished shambles... Whelp, it's a good thing you never took up that job in clairvoyance, because what plays out on screen before your mortified, forlorn, indignant or even nonplussed eyes is a Grade "A" slab of MST3K material. Our sympathies; you have just become a victim of the cinecide of a talent bomb. Somewhat similar to Hype Backlash, except that the only reason for the excitement in the first place was because of the names attached. Those fitting the criteria for this entry may also serve as a Mind Screw and thus have the potential to inflict the Putney Swope Panic, and/or can fall under the classification of So Bad, It's Good. Spawned from Chad Vader alum Craig "Weird Jimmy" Johnson, the term came into existence in the thirty-third episode of the Video Review Show Welcome To The Basement (for which he serves as co-host), used to describe the debacle that was Blind Boy Grunt's Masked and Anonymous. The Talent Grenade, a subtrope, was coined by Sloan two episodes thereafter; it follows the basic concept of its parent trope, but differs in that it is everything it should be, yet remains a commercial failure and critical lackluster.
