Hard to believe but I just watched the worst pool movie ever - 03-29-2020, 06:52 AM

Well I finally saw a pool movie worse than "Pool Hall Junkies". Found an old one from 1984 starring Johnny Cash. He should have stuck to singing. This was a truly cringe worthy movie. "The Baron and the Kid". I would however do anything to buy the pool room he was looking to buy. If I could describe what I would like to have in a pool room, that would be it.

What do "Pool Hall Junkies" and "The Baron and The Kid" have in common? Mike Massey appeared in both of them. I think these were the only two that he appeared in.

I didn't take Junkies all that serious. I didn't think it was all that bad. The Baron I haven't seen.

Those two are nowhere near the worst pool movies.

Check out 9 ball. Tell me it doesnt feel like a 1990s Cinemax titty movie.

Baron and the Kid is pretty bad. The Baltimore Bullet is also pretty bad (though BATK is worse).

The only good pool stuff I have seen besides The Hustler and TCOM is:

-The John Candy hustler parody clip
-The Seinfed pool scene
-The Twilight Zone episode with Jack Klugman
-The outtake scene from Groundhog Day

Y’all must have miss virgin pockets. Swear to god its a pool movie! Puts 9 ball the movie to shame as worst pool movie ever. But I’d have to say Turn the River is pretty good story with some pool in it.

Both BATK and BB are on Youtube in full. Now I get to see what I've been missing.

I thought Stickmen (Australian?) was actually a pretty entertaining film about a Bar table tournament-

You mentioned the Twilight Zone.

I saw the Twilight Series at the movies. They played Softball. I always thought that was a great movie that could of used a Pool Playing scene in it.

I really liked baron and the kid.

And it’s the only pool film you will find that is about
One thing from the opening scene to the end scene-
Pool.
