The Worst of the Worst

There’s a perverse sort of pleasure in a worst-of list, and if you’ve failed on Rotten Tomatoes, you’ve hit the big-time. The website aggregates critics around the country to give big-picture reviews of films. Our top 10 (bottom 10?) on this list are widely referred to around the web as “one of the worst movies ever made,” due to their infamy on Rotten Tomatoes. None of them earned more than a 2 percent rating. Where are some legendary bombs? With a 3 percent rating, the John Travolta disaster “Battlefield: Earth” only ranks at No. 61. And when no movie in the bottom 50 earned more than a 2 percent average, the number of critics reviewing a film will push a film closer to the dreaded title of Worst Movie Ever. (Looking for more bad films? Here are Tom Hanks’ Most Regrettable Movies.)

Number of Reviews: 22

Critic quote: “This lazily directed and sloppily written heist non-thriller unspools like one of those amusement park distractions where tourists play at being in a movie.” Peter Howell, Toronto Star


Don’t let Bruce Willis on the poster fool you. His role as a nasty crime boss is wee; the real story, such as it is, belongs to Claire Forlani as a jewel thief and “Saved by the Bell” star Mark-Paul Gosselaar as the ex she drags along for the heist.

30. Killing Me Softly

Year Released: 2002

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 23

U.S. Box Office Gross: $7.8 million

Critic quote: “A turgid erotic thriller that plays like Zalman King-meets-vintage Brian De Palma without the latter's wit or style.” David Rooney, Variety


It should have been a no-brainer. Two pretty people (Heather Graham and Joseph Fiennes) team up with Chen Kaige, the respected director of “Farewell, My Concubine.” Unfortunately, this attempt at eroticism was indeed a no-brainer, and a massive flop.

Critic quote: “Here is a movie about guns. Take away the guns, and the movie would be about nothing much.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Critic quote: “‘Highlander 2: The Quickening’ is the most hilariously incomprehensible movie I've seen in many a long day — a movie almost awesome in its badness.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


When the first movie’s catchphrase is “There can be only one,” a sequel seems ill-advised. Christopher Lambert returns as the time- and space-traveling macho hero.

U.S. Box Office Gross: $127 million

Critic quote: “As always Travolta is urban gorgeous and very charming. The rest of the film is neither.” Richard Corliss, Time magazine


It’s a testament to the massive success of “Saturday Night Fever” that the sequel, despite abysmal reviews, was a huge hit. John Travolta’s Tony Manero teaches dance and dreams of making it big on Broadway.

Year Released: 1993

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 25

U.S. Box Office Gross: $9.4 million

Critic quote: “There is absolutely no chemistry between Travolta and Alley, who are supposed to be passionate about one another. Strangers on the set could have generated more sparks on-screen.” Owen McNally, Hartford Courant


John Travolta shows up again on our list, this time with Kirstie Alley in the third installment of talking-baby movies. This time, though, it’s the dogs who won’t shut their yaps.

Amazon

21. Mac and Me

Year Released: 1988

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 27

U.S. Box Office Gross: $5.9 million

Critic quote: “A blatant commercial for McDonald's and Coca-Cola disguised as an E.T. rip-off.” Peter Travers, People magazine


A kid, a lost alien, and rampant product placement. The only difference between this and “E.T.” (other than quality and box office) is that this time, the boy is in a wheelchair.

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 28

U.S. Box Office Gross: $2.3 million

Critic quote: “Bland, interminable chase scenes take up so much of the story — the hackneyed plot doesn't need much exposition — that the sheer repetitiveness begins to amaze you.” Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader


Charlie Sheen plays a presidential aide who uncovers a plot to assassinate the president, in a film with such accomplished actors as Donald Sutherland, Linda Hamilton, and Sam Waterston.

Problem Child
Amazon

15. Problem Child

Year Released: 1990

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 29

U.S. Box Office Gross: $53.5 million

Critic quote: “Some kids are born bad. Others achieve badness. And some have badness thrust upon them. The same can be said of movies.” Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer


John Ritter met his wife, Amy Yasbeck, on the set of this film, so perhaps it’s not all bad. But that didn’t get them a pass from critics, who did not favor the comedy about an infertile couple who adopt a monstrous child.

Year Released: 1991

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Critic quote: “When an old scallawag spies on Lilli bathing naked in a waterfall, we civilized viewers are primed to condemn him. But we're all scallawags here.” Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 32

U.S. Box Office Gross: $20.5 million

Critic quote: “Delivering the cinematic equivalent of a lump of coal in a Christmas stocking, The Nutcracker in 3D is an apparent Scrooge-like attempt by Russian filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky to forever ruin children's associations with the classic Yuletide ballet.” Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter


The Rat King, played by John Turturro, looks like a Nazi. The nutcracker is called N.C. There is no ballet.

7. National Lampoon's Gold Diggers

Year Released: 2003

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 0 percent

Number of Reviews: 44

U.S. Box Office Gross: $403,200

Critic quote: “So stupefyingly hideous that after watching it, you'll need to bathe in 10 gallons of disinfectant, get a full-body scrub and shampoo with vinegar to remove the scummy residue that remains.” Jen Chaney, Washington Post


It’s not often you get a film pairing Will Friedle of “Boy Meets World” with TV legend Louise Lasser (“Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman”). If that weren’t convoluted enough, there’s the plot: Two broke guys try to rob two old women. After they’re arrested, the women take them in and they all get married, but the old women, who have lost their money, plot to murder their young husbands. (This movie was originally called “Lady Killers,” but is clearly not to be confused with "The Ladykillers" from 1955 starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers or the 2004 version starring Tom Hanks.)

U.S. Box Office Gross: $9.1 million

Critic quote: “That's the thing about children when it comes to movies: They're not that discriminating. They can be perilously easy to please, which is why it's important that their parents protect them from films like ‘Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2.’” Ellen Fox, Chicago Tribune


The babies are back, with secret communication that allows them to gang up on Jon Voight’s evil mastermind and baby kidnapper. This time, Scott Baio joins up as a baby genius daddy in this Golden Raspberry nominee for worst film.

U.S. Box Office Gross: $3.7 million

Critic quote: “I can't say this enough: This movie is about an adult male dressed in pink jammies.” Stephen Hunter, Washington Post

U.S. Box Office Gross: $4.3 million

Critic quote: “I'd rather wake up next to a severed horse head than ever watch 'Gotti' again.” Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post


John Travolta plays the notorious mafia boss with an impressive hairpiece. The film is directed by Kevin Connolly, best known as an actor on “Entourage.” Critics weren’t happy with any of it.

U.S. Box Office Gross: $18.4 million

Critic quote: “Does Eddie Murphy actually have any range, or is it just an illusion created by a few early edgy roles and, later, a lot of CGI makeup and fat suits?” Bilge Ebiri, New York magazine


Eddie Murphy plays a slick talker who magically has only 1,000 words left to speak; when they’re gone, he will be, too. Rotten Tomatoes audiences liked this film far better than critics, giving it a 47 percent rating, a testimony to Murphy’s enduring charms.

Nineties fixtures Shannon Sossamyn and Ed Burns star in this horror flick as they investigate murders where the victims hear their own deaths on a cell phone call.

U.S. Box Office Gross: $14.3 million

Critic quote: “It's like watching a movie version of Mad magazine's Spy vs. Spy, but minus the humor.” Leah Rozen, People magazine


Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas betray their acting chops in this tale of rival secret agents who join forces to defeat the thief of a nanorobot that causes heart attacks, but don’t exactly trust each other. The film was made by Thai director Wych Kaosayananda, who, on this film, goes by the aptly chosen pseudonym Kaos.
