A bad action movie is still an action movie and a bad comedy is still a comedy. But bad film noir is just   inexplicable. Take “Trouble In Mind” (1985). Take it and jettison it into space so it can orbit the earth with all the frozen space station poop and do no more harm to humans. An unlikable ex-cop played by Kris Kristofferson gets out of jail and enters a grimy, bizarro, pseudofuturistic city that is half Seattle and all rainy. There is no plot, the dialogue is mostly pretentious nonsense and the scattered comic moments seem out of place.
