'Trashy' films are considered to refer to low budget movies, badly made flicks and those which include explicit features within.

Think 21 Jump Street, John Tucker Must Die, Sharknado and pretty much any films featuring Adam Sandler.

For a long time, it has been assumed that people who enjoy watching films such as these were of low intelligence… rude much?

Luckily for us 'trashy' flick fans, a study published in Poetics: Journal of Empirical Research on Culture, the Media and the Arts has reversed the idea that only uncultured souls binge watch Mean Girls all day.

The research carried out investigated how the phrase 'trashy movies' in terms of pop culture could be utilised in a better way.

The online survey collected data from regular viewers of films considered trashy, and measured their intelligence and IQ. The result? They're darn ACADEMICS.

One reason why these films appealed to people with high IQ's was the ironic value of the badly made films, as well as the culturally subversive elements.

Trashy films can be less cautious with its use of plot-lines and execution, less rigid in structure, which is enjoyable for smart folk allegedly.

More original ideas and less clichés seemingly feature in badly made movies…interesting. *strokes chin* Trashy dramas with absurd plots and terrible acting can also be plain GAS to watch, it's so bad that it's good. 

There's a reason why the world and it's mother watched A Christmas Prince, and it ain't because of the acting lads.


She a beautiful actress with a 20-year long Hollywood career under her belt. 

But it seems that a recent round of pictures of Tara Reid has worried some of her loyal fans – with many claiming that she doesn't look well. 

The 40-year-old was is currently in San Diego for the famed Comic-Con event.

Tara herself has been promoting her latest film, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens – taking to the IMDb yacht yesterday along with her fellow cast members. 

Wearing a bright orange two-piece co-ord by WOW Couture, Ms Reid wore her blonde hair back off her face.

She smiled warmly for the duration of her appearance, but some of her fans nonetheless voiced their concern on social media.

"It's so terribly sad….she has beautiful eyes, a beautiful face…she looks so painfully thin that it just ruins everything," one wrote, adding: "I'm sure her body is suffering inside and out (hair falling out, brittle nails, skin problems, etc etc). I just wish she could put weight on and be happy.

"All these Hollywood actresses starving to death for what???"

Another said: "Tara Reid is a walking, visible example of how Hollywood can f–k you up."

The actress shared snaps from the event on Instagram, and confirmed that she was 'having fun'.

She was joined on the yacht by the film's director Anthony Ferrante as well as co-stars actors Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Ryan Newman.



Tara Reid claims that a ‘Sharknado’ could actually happen.

Say what?!

The actress – who starred in last year's cult Syfy film which features a tornado of sharks, says that it's a legitimate weather concern.

"You know, it actually can happen," she said.

"I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually. Which is crazy. Not that it — the chances of it are, like, you know, it's like probably 'pigs could fly'."

She went on to say that she didn't 'think' pigs could fly, but was certain that sharks could become engulfed in tornados.

"Like, I don't think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado," she added.

Tara is currently promoting the made for TV movie's sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One.

We can only guess what she’s going to say next!
