Some movies are so bad, they’re good. Whether it’s a sorry superhero flick or a horrible horror film, sometimes you just want to settle in and watch a movie that’s heavy on the cheesiness.

What are some of the most popular guilty-pleasure films out there? The team at CenturyLinkQuote wanted to find out, so they compiled a list of the lowest-rated movies of all time using data from IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. They analyzed the Google Trends data to determine which low-rated movie is most Googled in each state. Some of their findings may surprise you.

In the Land of Lincoln, Batman baddies seem to be a subject of interest. Illinois’ top-Googled movie in the study, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 8%, was ‘Catwoman,’ starring Halle Berry.

In the Hawkeye State, movie fans were in search of a good (or bad) road trip story. Iowa’s top-Googled movie in the study, with an IMDB rating of 3.6/10, was ‘Crossroads,’ with Britney Spears.
