200. A Shot in the Dark [B+]
201. Mortal Kombat [F]

A Shot in the Dark: Better than the first Clouseau film, this one wisely ignores developing a coherent plot in favor of physical and verbal humor by Peter Sellers in his most famous role (with more screentime for the comedian than in The Pink Panther). Outside of the opening sequence, which features an awful song that distracts from anything that might elicit laughter as well as the long camera take which is quite impressive, it's a lot of fun.

Mortal Kombat: Terrible on every level, this film wasn't a bad choice for a drinking game. I think the words "Mortal Kombat" are spoken aloud about 30 times, and that's some of the better dialogue. Christopher Lambert plays Rayden as a cross between Yoda and a sex offender, which is about as creepy as it sounds.
