I have had that 'fish out of water' feeling far too much, and have been literally 'Lost in translation'. But I still didn't get the movie (although as Andrei pointed out to me while we were watching it, Scarlett Johansen has a nice ass!)
--Very Bad Things - Another good cast wasted on a very unpleasant movie. Wanted to show the horrible things that can happen from one senseless accident and the attempt to cover it up rather than face its consequence. Also was trying to be a funny black comedy. It failed because there were NO characters you could sympathize with. They were ALL jerks!--
Actually, I got some chuckles out of this one. It was very over-the-top (similar to 'Death to Smoochy', another freakish load of crap movie), and yes they were all jerks, even the supposed 'conscience' guys. Was just another movie to make me dislike Cameron Diaz.
If you are accepting foreign films, there was a low-budget movie made in Russia some years ago called 'Parawda' ('Animal'). Supposed to be a sci-fi thriller kind of movie. Was more like a substandard 'B' movie (or, 'Z' movie) from the U.S. in the fifties. Just terrible, all through, but was a cult thing for some people, who would go and see it over and over and become fanatic about it (like your 'Rocky Horror' movie, another one I think that belongs here).
