“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Zombie Island Massacre (1984)
How bad is it? There's no zombies, for one thing. And no massacre. Should you see it? Only if you remember who Rita Jenrette was.
Back when political sex scandals were still scandalous, a congressman and his wife had sex on the Capitol steps. After he left office, she decided to launch a singing and acting career and pose nude for Playboy. This film was part of that poor decision. At the start of the film, Jenrette has a shower scene and no one really would care. Later, she sings (reggae) and no one would care. She tries to act and... you get the idea. The movie's plot is about smuggling in the Caribbean and the best scene is an endless crying scene when the star's boyfriend gets beheaded.
