Okay, I know you don't watch a bad, campy movie to complain about the lack of plot, the phoniness, the horrible acting. But when you watch a bad, campy movie by yourself, a lot of the "fun" goes out of it, and you find yourself just watching a cheesy piece of crap. Iconic crap, yes. But still crap.
That's what happened to me last night when I watched Valley of the Dolls. I had read the book -- and loved it -- in 7th grade and I think at some point in college I watched the movie, but don't really remember. So this was to refresh my memory. It was horrible. Not fun. Okay, maybe a little unintentionally funny. But not fun.
