Post Good moments in bad movies
I'm sure we all suffered through horrible movies and I'm sure we all have movies where we're all like "The movie sucked, but that part was awesome!" or "That guy was awesome!" So let's hear them.

Perfect Stranger - When Bruce Willis fires a guy by beating the shit out of him.
Pearl Harbor - The attack
Bad Boys II - the first car chase, I think...the one with Gabrielle Union driving that truck without a door

In the same vein, Billy Bob Thornton gave a great performance as Davie Crockett in The Alamo.

One particulary good moment in what was overall a weak movie is the next to last scene in Bobby. The scene where Nick Cannon introduces Senator Kennedy and he delivers his speech while Sounds Of Silence plays on the soundtrack. Probably because most people watching know what's going to happen next that scene has emotional resonance. It's the only scene in the whole movie that's that effective. If the rest of the movie had been the same, we might have had a masterpiece on our hands instead of the mediocre only a small-step above a TV movie thing we ended up with.
