1989 must have been a strange year. Apparently, during this time Roseanne Barr and Meryl Streep were close enough in popularity and notoriety to co-star in a movie together. Since that time, the career paths of these two women have diverged slightly. Meryl Streep is winning Oscars. Roseanne is doing this.
But, back in 1989, they shared the stage as co-stars of the movie She-Devil. Alongside Ed Begley Jr., the three share not only the screen, but arguably the worst movie poster of all-time. (Sidenote: How bad does Ed Begely Jr. feel about his career when he can’t even get his name above the title before Roseanne?)
To be fair, not only did I watch this movie for only 15 minutes, but the movie was on mute while I ate lunch at a restaurant. Here are my takes on what, from the visuals alone, look like the worst movie ever.
1) This movie was being played on some channel called This. That’s right; the name of the channel is This. I’m assuming that when the executive board of This got together to decide how to allocate the $14.85 it had in its movie budget, they decided to break down and pay the 35-cents it cost to get the rights to She-Devil. For an extra nickel they could have had every movie Roseanne ever made, they declined.
