Ishtar 1987

Ishtar

Critics Consensus

Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, and laughter itself get lost in the desert during a flawed spoof of classic road movies that proves ill-suited for its mismatched and miscast stars.

    (1987 Director: Elaine May) Funny tale of two semi-talented young men who succumb to travel to the Middle East in order to reach for fame (after failing miserably in U.S.) Co-stars severa; of my favorites, including Carol Kane, Charles Grodin,

    Not as bad as it's reputation; It's just NOT funny.

    Recognized as one of the worst movies of all time. And it is!! But hilarious (in a head-scratching way) because of how bad it is.
