Rifftrax does Cracked.com: 7 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Movies:

Awesome. I wasn't surprised when I saw Birdemic at the number 1 spot.

I was hoping for something like Sophie's Choice.

I'm not sure why The Happening is on the list, that one actually seems mostly intentional.

The real Shyamalan film that should be up there is The Last Airbender

There's a different between "dreadful" and "funny". From what I've heard, The Last Airbender is just bad and painful to watch. Whereas the premise of The Happening - the trees are trying to murder us with pollen! - is inherently ridiculous.

...is it just me or do all these films have a respective RiffTrax? Hmm... tongue

Any child can follow rules. True adulthood is knowing which ones to break and when.

This was pretty funny.
Don't believe yourself, believe in me.

Believe in the JR who believes in you.
Psyclone: Yeah I know you're being silly but . . .

I think its the cart before the horse. They riffed these movies because they were the most unintentionally hilarious movies they could find (its not easy to write a riff for just any movie). So its natural that their list would consist of movies they've riffed. Especially given the sheer volume of movies they've riffed.

Also, they haven't riffed Sex and the City 2 yet, my guess is their riff of Crossroads didn't sell well and that led them to believe that something like Sex and the City 2 wouldn't be worth the effort. But yes, the other six have rifftrax.

THE MEEK
A Rifftrax for Birdemic seems kinda redundant.

Exactly, The Happening was clearly meant to be ridiculous from the get-go, the only part that seemed like actual Narm was the "lemon drink"

The Last Airbender had stuff like Ozai's glowing butt, Phallic Yue Hair, and the Earthbending scene, all of which were clearly supposed to be taken seriously.

Correct if I'm wrong but all these unintentionally hilarious movies are well, unintentionally hilarious

[up] I'm not sure I buy that the Happening was supposed to be absurd. . .
