I thought the film was fairly good. If I were you, IŽd watch another one...
What does fairly bad mean? Can I say the film was fairly bad?
It's a classic example of understatement, indicating that something is moderate. It carries a sense that something was quite good, but not all that good. Equally something can be fairly worrying, fairly awful, fairly bad, fairly exciting.
