How do you say "Some films are so bad they are good"?


I am trying to say "these films are so bad they are good". Is this right?

"Algunas películas pueden ser definidas como ser tan malas que son buenas."

I know with the tan que in there it may sound like I am saying that the films "are more bad than they are good", which is what I am not trying to say.

Is there a better way of saying this?

Is this about "Star Wars" again?

I think your statement would give the thought you're trying to express, but I don't know if the irony of the expression would come across.

I would probably say "... son tan malas que me caen bien."
