The Lyrics

You ever watch a terrible movie and think "Man, how fired is that guy's agent?"
Watchin' a movie (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Been graded "B", should be "D" (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Script is a joke, so what completely shocked me (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
The villain's played by a supremely good actor (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Why are you here?

And this is not before the world knew who he was
Triple-checked what the release date is
He's slummin' it, you know, he's slummin' in this film
He's slummin' in this bullshit
I don't know why he would, oh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Why's he in this movie (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)?
Must owe the director his life (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Don't think his career is goin' under (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Weird to dare offer him this part (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
With half-assed scar makeup, cheap longcoat duds (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
Well, at least his actin's good, please (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)?
This man's barely
Concious, you see, each line's said flatly

I know this dude is good, racked up tons of awards
And I've watched what won, all were aces
So slummin' it here blows, he's slummin' in this film
He's slummin' in this bullshit (eeh-oh)
I don't know why he would, oh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Dude (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)
How can this be?
Seems half-asleep, missed his cue badly (ee-yeah, yeah, yo)

The plot is hazy (ee-yeah), the cuts are jarrin' (ee-yo)
How dare you disrespect this man now?
The plot's half-baked in, all these shots are jarrin'
Might explain the crap performance (ee-yo), oh-hoo-hoo-ooh

This movie's far from good, predictable-ass schlock
But his presence means I can't hate it
Though he's slummin' in this role, he's slummin' in this film
And he's awful
His actin' here ain't good, as half-assed as this plot
And the CG work is so blatant
Poor guy's slummin' in this role, he's slummin' in this film
It's so awful
Not so bad that it's good, but I can't turn it off
Man, the romance is rote and basic
Why's he slummin' in this role? He's slummin' in this film
So damn awful
Can't have thought this was good
He's slummin' in this film
Whole thing's awful

Not one part is good, he's slummin' in this film
Bet the blackmail's good, he's slummin' in this film

"I have never seen the film, but by all accounts it was terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!"

"Why should I complain about making $700 a week playing a maid? If I didn't, I'd make $7 a week being one."

"I was a medium-level juvenile delinquent from Newark who always dreamed about doing a movie. Someone said 'Hey, here's $7 million, come in and do this genie movie.' What am I going to say? NO?"

You can probably guess how I got here in 2022. This is hilarious. I'd sure like to know what film was this bad and who the actor was, but on the other hand maybe it's better I don't. Season 555

I will admit, Chris, I wasn't basing this on any specific film/actor. That'd involve me deliberately watching bad films, got no plans for that nonsense.
