This headline is a lie. These are the six best movies on TV tonight, and one of the worst sequels ever made, and this is your warning not to watch it!

This will be the first Tuesday in a long time with no Great British Bake Off to distract us, so it will be a great night to watch a movie or two.

Don't watch this movie. We know this article is about pointing out the best movies on the TV tonight, but you all need to be warned about this, in case you see it is on and think "How bad can it possibly be??" The answer is very. Very, very bad.
