Garbage Pail Kids (Movie)

1987 film directed by Rod Amateau

Garbage Pail Kids is a 1987 American live action film adaptation of the then-popular series of children's trading cards produced, directed, and co-written by Rod Amateau. It is the last film to be directed by Amateau.

The cards were a parody of the popular Cabbage Patch Kids dolls and each card featured a character that typically had a gross habit or abnormality. The film depicted many of the Garbage Pail Kids (played by dwarf actors in costumes) interacting with society and befriending a regular boy. The film received entirely negative reviews and was a major flop at the box office. It is widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made.
