The audiobook was well-done, at least. And the movie was kind of pretty. Just as long as I avoid Breaking Dawn's gory birth scene, I can stand it. (Heck, I think I even liked reading the part where all the other vampires came to see Renesmee!)
I kinda, sorta, maybe...
Enjoyed Modelland. And I think I want to see the movie (if it comes out).
Also I used to absolutely love Cori Falls fanfic and still read it sometimes.
Independence Day. You can smell the cheese through your TV/sound system's speakers whenever this comes on, and yet it will pull you in like a black hole, especially if you happen to turn it on during one of Goldblum's scenes.
EDIT: Holy crap, necro...

Supposedly, there's a sequel planned. We can only hope this involves epic space batttles.
I shall defend Ladyhawke heatedly. Cheesy? Hell, yes. But good.
Well, except for the background music. That's aged particularly badly.

You're certainly not alone. I once saw some well-known author (I think it was Poul Anderson) give a fairly vigorous defense of the movie. Apparently they did some first-class research into many of the historical elements of the film, and showed their work. I don't remember all the details, though.
Cosmic Race on the Playstation 1. The developers very clearly had no idea what they were doing and the resulting game was glorious.
On that note, how about Shadow The Hedgehog? The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced it's a Stealth Parody of darker and edgier reboots of franchises.
Shadow the Hedgehog is a perfect example of So Bad, It's Good.
15 years later, and I still think Planescape Torment is one of the best games ever. But damn, it's painful to go back to it, with pixelated graphics* that were so awesome at the time and especially the really counter-intuitive D&D 2nd edition rules.
I'm watching Babylon5 again, for the second time. The CGI is ... almost laughable, but at the time it too was cutting edge. All my troping is also giving me a more critical looks at the episodes, as I can see better this time around where some of the acting is really weak and not supporting the tropes.
Very well then... A few horrible works whose inaneness have only ripened with age that I have had the displeasure to behold:
Plan 9 from Outer Space (Can you prove it didn't happen?)
The Room (You are tearing me apart Tommy!)
Trolls 2 (Stupid spelled backwards is still stupid)
Superbabies 2 (What compelled me to it continues to elude me)
... and more to come ladies and gentlemen
Not too old, and only a specific part of it, but Deus Ex's voice acting and modelling. It's like a fine wine that's matured too long - it's graced with age but it still wasn't fantastic then, and it seems worse now. But it has a charm with it because it's there for a reason, and fulfills that well enough that it becomes So Bad, It's Good to me.
I recently discovered the pulp novelist Michael Avallone. Pretty much everything he wrote was critically panned, but I absolutely love him because he loves writing so much. The Purple Prose, Author Appeal, and less-than-great attention to continuity just add to the enjoyment. A lot of his stuff reminds me of fanfiction, in a good way. This page does a good job of describing what I like about him.
The PC Game of Tek War. One of the weirdest first person games out there, with William Shatner doing speeches as only he can, weirdly dressed villains, "futuristic" settings (mainly involving lots of shiny metal and glass), and much more. Definitely so bad it's good.
Free jazz is hilarious. I mean listen to this.
It's surreal genius, but also I can't stop laughing.

How well does it match the trope?
