Check out which 5 famous movies that get almost zero rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
5. One Missed Call
The modern revival of the horror movie genre has led to a number of bad decisions in Hollywood. Like that time Paris Hilton co-starred in a remake of House of Wax. But the worst of the bunch was the ridiculous One Missed Call. A remake of a 2003 Japanese horror movie that opened some truly terrifying reviews in 2008. A blatant rip-off of the far superior ring films critics was quick to roll their eyes at the film’s premise. Which essentially revolved around a cell phone that killed people calling it contrived silly and a complete waste of time and those were the nicer reviews this is one call you should be glad you missed.
4. Super Babies Baby Geniuses 2
The original baby geniuses with just one positive review away from making this list that in itself is enough reason to wonder how anyone on earth allowed a sequel to happen. And yet somehow someway super babies baby geniuses too rolled into theaters in 2004. Unsurprisingly critics were quick to call it out for being what it was a dumb idea. Joanne Kauffman of The Wall Street Journal called it unspeakably ghastly. And Jr. Jones of the Chicago Reader said it was excruciating. Well, Christopher Borelli of the Toledo Blade pretty much summed up everyone’s feeling when he wrote I found this all profoundly disturbing. Undeterred producers turned the series into a full-fledged franchise. Releasing three more installments but the critics just couldn’t take any more. None of the subsequent baby geniuses even have enough reviews to earn a spot on the tomato meter.
3. The Nutcracker in 3D
One of the most egregious offenders of the post avatar 3d craze was 2010’s notoriously awful The Nutcracker in 3d. Which took Tchaikovsky’s ballet and turned it into a bombastic musical featuring Elle Fanning Nathan Lane and not exactly subtle references to waiting for it the Holocaust. Worst of all the movies over-the-top sets and CGI were literal eyesores. Looking less like a ballet and more like Michael Bay. ultimately Lou luminous of the New York Post summed it up best when he called the Nutcracker in 3d. Spectacularly misconceived bloated and incredibly ugly. But tell us how you really feel Lou.
2. Bucky Larson Born to be a Star
Every so often a movie comes along that’s so bad so random. It’s hard to imagine how it was ever made in the first place. Bucky Larson born to be a star is one of those movies. The film which starred Nick Swardson as a dopey small-town grocery bagger who moves to LA to follow his parents’ pornstar footsteps. opened in 2011 as some of the worst reviews Hollywood had seen in decades. Many critics trashed the film for its unfunny childish jokes in fact reviews were so harsh by the time the movie opened. Swardson slating man career was already over. A star was not born.
1. A Thousand Words
Starring Eddie Murphy, the comedy a thousand words were filmed back in 2008. But it was so bad paramount waited for entire years to release it when your own studio doesn’t want anyone to see the film they paid to make you know you have problems and critics agreed that it was awful. Lambasted the lame story about a guy who’s cursed by a magic tree. It will die if he talks too much. one critic called the flop a poorly conceived and startling Lee miscast comedy that works to every one of its stars weaknesses.
