Volume XXI/Issue #1             Official Newsletter of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation Fall 2001

7pm Saturday, Nov. 17th @ Razzie HQ

You’re Invited to Go ‘Beyond’ ‘3000 MILES’
and See The 21st Annual RAZZIES on Video!

‘BATTLEFIELD DEARTH’ Sweeps, Kevin Costner Will Give You The Creeps and ‘BVD’ Features X-Rated Peeps!

What’s even scarier than seeing 157 Osama Bin Ladens Trick-or-Treating on Halloween? How about seeing 3-Time Worst Actor “Winner” Kevin Costner sporting Elvis Sideburns, a 357 Magnum and a Sequined Polyester Jumpsuit in 2001 Worst Picture Front-Runner 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND?

That’s our Main Feature at this Fall’s RAZZIE Member Screening, triple-billed with the video of Our Shortest-Ever Award Ceremony -- The 21st Annual RAZZIES, in which John Travolta’s BATTLEFIELD DEARTH (to the surprise of no one who attended Preview Night last Spring!) swept 7 Categories to tie with SHOWGIRLZ as Our All-Time Worst. And as a Special Bonus we’ll also be showing That Hard-to-Find, X-Rated All-Time RAZZIE Classic, BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. If we haven’t scared you off yet, this event is set for 7pm on Saturday, November 17 at Razzie Headquarters.

A Pared-Down, All-Expenses-Spared Version of Our Annual Tinsel Town Turkey Trot, The 21st RAZZIES feature Veteran Voice-Over Maven Bill Jones as Master of Cere-Moan-ies and a Cast of Less-Than-Half-a-Dozen (Dan Campbell, Chip Dornell, Kelie McIver, Micki Sackler and Head RAZZberry John Wilson) Rip-Roaring Their Way Through 9 Categories of 2000's Worst Achievements in Film in Barely Half-an-Hour....
After a Brief Break for Eats and Door Prizes (including a VHS Tape of The 21st RAZZIES and a Collectible ‘3 Stooges’ Key Chain) we’ll be showing BOTH The Bare-Assed, Bald-Facedly Hilarious BVD and the film Box Office Magazine called “a catastrophic debacle of the highest order!” From the Same Production Company as BATTLEFIELD (and Stallone’s DRIVEN!) 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND features “King” Costner and Previous RAZZIE Nominees Kurt (The Jerk) Russell and Christian (The Smirk) Slater plus Courtney (Whatta Piece of Work) Cox in a Blood-Soaked, Brainless Immorality Tale about a Gang of Elvis Impersonators who rob a Vegas casino. With an attitude toward women and violence that makes Oliver Stone’s NATURAL BORN KILLERS seem like “Little House on The Prairie,” GRACELAND was called “JAILHOUSE CROCK” by The Philadelphia Inquirer and USA Today said it, “Nearly matches the Lisa-Marie/Michael Jackson marriage for weirdness!” As for BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, It’s EVERY-THING You’ve Always Heard It Is -- AND MORE!

To Attend This Titillating Triple Feature, Please RSVP to HeadBerry@razzies.com
And We’ll See You (In Sideburns & Sequins?) November 17th!

The WORST Kind of GOSSIP!

SO, IS GOING ‘MAIN STREAM’ BERRY GOOD...OR BERRY BAD? Since last Spring’s 21st Annual Awards, The RAZZIES have been the subject of several Hi-Profile, Main Stream References. The week after That Other Awards, AOL used our nominees to poll more than 271,000 people for Worst Picture. The “winner”? BATTLEFIELD DEARTH (of course!). Then, in their review of Duh Sly-Ster’s DRIVEN, USA Today declared: “With so much rich competition already, it's tough to handicap which release will win the Razzie award for Worst Movie of 2001...but Driven is certainly a contender.”

IS THAT A WIRE HANGER IN YER POCKET, OR ARE YA JUST GLADTA SEE ME? Filming is completed in Ohio on THE CALLING, about real-life 1960's Faith-Healer-cum-Televangelist Leroy Jenkins. Why do we care? Jenkins’ devotees included Elvis Presley, Liberace and Mae West. And West will be played by...MOMMIE DEAREST Herself, Faye Dunaway!

AH-NOLD’S CHANCES FER HIZ 8th WORST ACTOR NOMINASHIN GIT BLOWED UP REAL GOOD... As a result of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Tinsel Town is putting off release of several big budget action-oriented titles. Films now on Perma-Hold include Ah-nold Schwarzenegger’s latest, in which he avenges the death of his family from... a terrorist attack on a skyscraper! Too bad, since even in As Big a Year for Bad Movies as 2001, COLLATERAL DAMAGE sounds like it Coulda Been a Contenduh...

THINK OF THESE TIMES AS ‘JERRY’S SKIDS’ If you follow the hate-mongering rhetoric of Televangelist Jerry Falwell, blame for the recent terrorist bombings belongs on the shoulders of “feminists, lesbians, gays” (and anyone else not following his strict “Christian” tenets). You may also recall a few years ago, Falwell claimed that Purple, Purse-Toting Tele-Tubby Tinky-Winky was recruiting kids to “go gay.” Following Fallwell’s Form of “Logic” the target of American bombings should have been...Tele-Tubby Island! (Just think - Dipsy, La-La, Po and All Those Itty-Bitty Bunnies coulda been...Collateral Damage!)
