Dead Weekend (1995)

Nomination Year: 2000
SYNOPSIS:  It's the future. The TWF (kinda like the World Wrestling Federation, I think) has taken over and declared martial law. Using a fake earthquake story, they evacuate a city to search for a female alien they know has landed in the vicinity. It turns out this alien has the ability to shape-shift into any woman you desire -- and she "gains energy" from sex. She befriends (and has a lot of sex with) a TWF agent named Weed, and the two fall in love. But can such a match survive, when their two societies are worlds apart?

Smithee Award Winner! Most Ludicrous Premise

"Maximum Pleasure, Weed, Minimum Pain."
Amelia "explains" how she shape-shifts uncontrollably, because she has "the last disease." Only sex and pleasure can save her. Will Weed help? Take a guess.

Crummiest Ending

"What a Whiny, Preachy Space-B*tch. Kinda Makes You Think, Though."
Weed gets shot and Amelia lectures everyone on the evils of society at gunpoint. She takes off and we're all left to contemplate if she wasn't right after all. Bleh.
