Sylvester Stallone And Dolly Parton Probably Pretend This Movie Never Happened

- Page 1

There are a lot of great movies out there. You've got your controversial movies, your amazing classics that have stood the test of time, and of course the ones that are so bad they might just be great. Those ones are really the best of all right? Well, if you agree do we ever have a treat for you.

In 1984, two stars were given the roles that would give them the opportunity of a lifetime. Sure, most people would like to be remembered for being in one of the best movies of all time, but someone has to be in one of the worst. Sylvester Stallone is known for his tough-guy characters like Rocky Balboa and Rambo, but what he doesn't want you to remember is that he once played a cabbie-turned-country star in a movie with Dolly Parton.

That's right. Dolly Parton starred alongside Sylvester Stallone in a movie called Rhinestone and it had one of the most bizarre plots imaginable. I mean, it's so bizarre that it could be deemed offensive and disgusting, but somehow they made this movie anyways.

Have you ever seen it? It's probably one of the strangest movies you will ever experience.

Dolly Parton plays a country singer who is locked into a contract performing at a crappy bar that she doesn't want to work at anymore.

When she tries to get out of the contract, the sleazy bar owner only will let her leave if she can train a new country star in a couple of weeks. If she fails, she has to stay for another five years AND sleep with her boss. Because that isn't just horribly illegal...

The bar owner finds a contestant who will play in this terrible, gross, horrific game who just happens to be cab driver played by Sylvester Stallone.

So Dolly brings Sylvester home to Tennessee because that is where you learn how to make country music.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of

'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
