Ranked: The Worst Films

Ranked: The Worst Films

Dec 09, 2020Brittany

Some of the worst films star big-name actors, which makes their low ratings all the more surprising. Not every movie can be a hit but sometimes viewers are left speechless as to how scripts and actors were allowed on air... Here are the biggest movie "losers" of all time, can you guess what the number one pick is?! It will shock you!    


A live-action film that features Jim Carrey and James Marsden and highlights Ben Schwartz as the voice of the computer game character seemed hopeful, right? Wrong! Called "a 99-minute commercial designed to drive sales of merchandise," is not the kind of description these stars were hoping for...


This Netflix romantic comedy is about various forms of the same wedding day. Commentators were not exactly enchanted by the "Groundhog Day"-Esque streaming flick. Molly Freeman called the experience "too cringe-y to be any fun." Ouch! Will you give this movie a skip? 


The Netflix continuation of "The Kissing Booth," about the now significant long-distance connection between high schooler Elle (Joey King) and Noah (Jacob Elordi), was classified "long" and "dumb" by the New York Post. Despite its amazing scenery, the plot was drawn out and pretty predictable. As you'll see, sequels often tend to end up on "worst movie" lists... 


Did you think Blake Lively could do no wrong? Think again! As a lady looking for some vengeance for the homicide of her family, Blake Lively acquired some applause, however, a few commentators felt the film was confusing. A film critic, Joe Morgenstern described it as "dismal." 


Not even the all-star cast of Shailene Woodley, Jamie Dornan, and Sebastian Stan could save this drama from being called a "bore-fest." While it seemed like a pretty amazing story and the movie to watch out for in 2020, this was soon disproved. If you give this movie a chance, prepare to be underwhelmed!     


"The Last Thing He Wanted" ended up being the last thing anyone wanted to see. This Anne Hathaway-driven dramatization about a D.C. writer who turns out to be too closely associated with a crime story was classified "hollow" by Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. Yikes!


The political dramedy featuring two superstar actors, Steve Carell and Rose Byrne, was shockingly classified as one of the most offending motion pictures of the year. Ouch! We guess this major movie was not as the title implied and is certainly "resistible". 


Tormented by paper-thin portrayals and outdated content, Material Girls neglects to satisfy even the minimum standards of its Rom-Com genre. Hilary Duff, Haylie Duff, Anjelica Huston, Lukas Haas - we expected more from this film. It's Rotten Tomatoes rating? A disappointing 4%!    


This was the movie where Spidey went evil ... and we got three bad guys at the cost of one. Three villains might've been something to be thankful for had they not stomped on one another's screentime. However, crowds loved it and it remains one of Sony's greatest earning films. Yet, with Sam Raimi in charge, it could have been so much better! 

One commentator said, "As he scampers around the bathtub of popular culture, Spidey is beginning to exhaust everyone's patience. The time has come for someone to produce a rolled-up newspaper the size of a subway train and bring it down with an almighty crash." 


Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton had so much to give for 2018's London Fields. The film was a variation of the darling book and was a disappointment on all records, procuring a zero percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics said, "London Fields [messes up] its beloved source material." 


Jan De Bont, screenwriters Randall McCormick and Jeff Nathanson did us dirty with this spin-off. Not even Oscar-star Sandra Bullock could spare this one. Rarely has an establishment gone from "great" to the "terrible" as quick as Speed. The original film was one of the bests but the second one diminished into a dismal failure.     


Harold Zwart, co-screenwriter and star Steve Martin didn't perform on this one. The thing about reviving a classic is that you're always going to be measured against the original and 9 out of 10 times sequels fall short. This spin-off is scarcely fit to grovel and keep up with the first film. Overall, no entertaining pieces here, sorry! 


The plot wasn't terrible and commentators had some pleasant comments about Jim Carrey's presentation however the good news finished there. One critic considered it "artless" and on top of that, the film got a 0% rating and an unremarkable 30% from crowds. Ouch! 


Vondie Curtis-Hall, Mariah Carey, and Max Beesley, what did you do? It must've appeared to be a smart thought at first... With one of the greatest selling record stars ever, two or three great tunes, all seemed perfect, correct? Well, not really. Mariah could not act and the music didn't produce a hit. A dull film was the result here. 


It gathered just 4% from Rotten Tomatoes and was called witless and unfocused. Playing for Keeps is unsettling and failed at delivering a great Hollywood romantic comedy. Not even stars Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, and Catherine Zeta-Jones could redeem this film. 


Disaster Movie's name says it all. Friedberg and Seltzer give us the talentless hacks behind a string of silly spoofs for 90 minutes of pure stupidity. And not the good kind. It was called "A disaster first, and a movie barely" and most viewers seem to have agreed with this!    


Eddie Murphy and Kerry Washington are two Hollywood names that should guarantee a successful movie. Instead, A Thousand Words is a wreck of a film that gets a 0% rating and a 47% positive rating from watchers. The words used to depict the film are "not funny" and "poorly conceived." Well, there you have it. 


It's an obvious fact that Adam Sandler's movies have gotten worse over time, and perhaps the best illustration of this is The Ridiculous 6 movie. The film follows six outsiders meeting up in the Wild West subsequent to finding out that they have the same dad. It did not go down well, being called "a lazy and offensive attempt at a film." Yikes! 


Excessively dependent on characters without any human understanding, Because I Said So is an unfunny, antique ridden wreck. Diane Keaton stars as a mother following a common storyline and unfortunately, her acting abilities matched with Mandy Moore didn't make for a triumph. 


Eddie Murphy and Brian Robbins made a mess with this one. A film so phenomenally horrendous you will only start to pardon Murphy years later, this movie considers him to be geeky. However, the fun stops there as it gives us an endless supply of unsuitable content. It is hostile to anybody with some taste.  


Obviously, something wasn't right the second we saw the lashed outfit worn by Halle Berry. The full degree of the catastrophe was only clear when we saw the odd face-cream of MacGuffin. Commentators said, "Not to be catty about it, but the stench of the litter pan is all over this big-screen $90 million disaster."


Joel Schumacher, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, George Clooney, and Arnold Schwarzenegger sound like a decent mix? Reconsider! This was a runaway failure. From the neon design to the exaggerated content, it's become known as a truly terrible film. 


After the accomplishment of remaking The Grudge and The Ring, each film studio was stepping up at the spot for the following hit horror film. One Missed Call came out in 2008, featured Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns, and was called "fright-less" by critics. Now that's not the best description for a scary movie, is it?! Which is why its 0% rating makes sense...   


Jaws: The Revenge, otherwise known as Jaws 4, is the third continuation of Stephen Spielberg's Jaws, and the last portion in the Jaws franchise. Delivered in 1987, the film follows a now-bereaved Ellen Brody, who is persuaded that a great white shark is looking for vengeance against her family following them to the Bahamas. 

Obviously, the film was not received well. It got a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, with one commentator remarking that “it is not simply a bad movie, but also a stupid and incompetent one.” Ouch, now that is no way to remember such a great classic. We better stick to watching the original only! 


Stars Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans made a film that has been called sourly awful. With a shocking plot and general obnoxiousness, this one didn't impress. A critic explained that "The premise veers wildly from its fertile setup ... [has] humor that's isn't smart ... and [features] preposterous plotting that insults the intelligence." Yikes! We were not expecting this one!
