Nobody Gets Out of Here Without Singing the Blues

Ever watched a movie that was just awful? I think everyone has. It's probably an unwritten rule but, once in a while, even a really stupid movie can have a redeeming scene. For example, in Adventures in Babysitting, an undeniably stupid movie, there's a wonderful scene with Albert Collins. I won't give away any part of the movie but the music is great and the scene is hilarious. Another film that stand out in my mind is Kansas City. This isn't a stupid movie, it's a grusome movie. The story is morbid but the music is great and there's a magical scene where it's supposedly sometime in the wee hours of the morning and there's only a handful of people in a jazz club while two upright basses and a piano are jamming. The whole movie is worth that one scene.
