Movies that actually scored a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes (13 Photos)
Movies can be really great, and movies can also be really…really bad.
Rotten Tomatoes gives us a pretty good idea of what a movie’s going to be like by collecting all of the critic reviews and telling you what percentage liked it, and what percentage did not. A 0% score means not a single critic enjoyed it. Here are some of those films that you should probably stay far away from…unless you’re getting drunk and making fun of it. Which could be a good time.
‘Norm of the North’ (2016)
Norm is a sassy talking polar bear who doesn’t want tourists in the Arctic. When a crazy developer threatens to build condos in his own backyard, Norm makes the obvious move and goes to New York to try and sabotage the plans.
Critic consensus: “A pioneering feat in the field of twerking polar bear animation but blearily retrograde in every other respect, Norm of the North should only be screened in case of parental emergency.”
‘National Lampoon’s Gold Diggers’ (2003)
Twenty-somethings Cal and Lenny get arrested for robbing a couple of 60-year-old women, but the ladies decide to drop the charges and instead invite the guys back to their space-age Beverly Hills mansion. Cal and Lenny devise a plan to marry the women for their money in the hopes that they’ll die within the year. Turns out, the 2 women are actually broke and are planning to marry the guys, kill them and take the insurance money.
Critic consensus: “It aspires to Farrelly-level offensiveness, but the PG-13 rating and a dearth of decent gags renders Gold Diggers tame, toothless, and dull.”
‘A Thousand Words’ (2012)
Eddie Murphy plays Jack McCall, a fast talking literary agent who sets his sights on New Age guru Dr. Sinja for his own selfish reasons. Suddenly a mysterious tree appears in McCall’s backyard, and everything starts to fall apart.
Critic consensus: “Dated jokes (A Thousand Words was shot in 2008) and removing Eddie Murphy’s voice — his greatest comedic asset — dooms this painful mess from the start.”
‘Bucky Larson: Born To Be a Star’ (2011)
Nick Swardson plays a small town grocery bagger going nowhere in life until he discovers that his parents were once porn stars. He packs up and heads to LA to follow in his parent’s footsteps.
Critic consensus: “A severely misguided and inept comedy incapable of even telling its single joke properly.”
‘Ballistic: Ecks Vs. Sever’ (2002)
2 ex-government agents search for the most deadly weapon on Earth, and butt heads while they do it.
Critics consensus: “A startlingly inept film, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever offers overblown, wall-to-wall action without a hint of wit, coherence, style, or originality.”
‘Jaws: The Revenge’ (1987)
The third sequel to the 1975 hit follows Ellen Brody, widow of Roy Scheider from the first 2 movies. When her son Sean, the current police-chief of Amity Island, is killed by the shark, Ellen goes to the Bahamas to comfort her surviving son, who is a marine biologist. He and his friend Jake try to help, but it’s ultimately up to Ellen and her new beach-bum boyfriend to stop the fishy madness.
Critic consensus: “Illogical, tension-free, and filled with cut-rate special effects, Jaws 4 – The Revenge is a sorry chapter in a once-proud franchise.”
‘Nutcracker in 3D’ (2010)
We all know the story of 9-year-old Mary and her enchanted nutcracker. Not even the sugar plum fairies could help this one out.
Critic consensus: “Misguided, misconceived, and misbegotten on every level, The Nutcracker in 3D is a stunning exercise in astonishing cinematic wrong-headedness.”
‘One Missed Call’ (2008)
This remake follows a college student whose friends have all been dropping like flies, and the one thing they have in common is that just before they die, they receive a voice mail in which they hear themselves being killed. Beth gets a message of her own and has just 3 days to cheat death.
Critic consensus: “One of the weakest entries in the J-horror remake sweepstakes, One Missed Call is undone by bland performances and shopworn shocks.”
A collection of speed freaks gather to hit the streets in the hopes of winning $24 million. Laws don’t apply to them, and the drivers will do whatever it takes to win the race and change their lives.
Critic consensus: “Redline has plenty of bad acting, laughable dialogue, and luxury cars.”
‘Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2’ (2004)
The freakishly smart baby adventure continues with a new generation that finds themselves at the center of an evil scheme. They must race against time to stop the villain Biscane from using a satellite system to control the minds of everyone in the world.
Critic consensus: “A startling lack of taste pervades Superbabies, a sequel offering further proof that bad jokes still aren’t funny when coming from the mouths of babes.”
‘Killing Me Softly’ (2002)
Alice is an American web designer from Illinois who falls for a mountain climber named Adam. Sparks fly when the two meet at a stoplight, and it isn’t long before they are living together. When they get married, Alice realizes that she knows very little about him and discovers that his previous fiancé died under mysterious circumstances.
Critic consensus: “Respected director Chen Kaige’s first English-language film is a spectacularly misguided erotic thriller, with ludicrous plot twists and cringe-worthy dialogue.”
This remake of the classic children’s story follows the wooden boy around as his curiosity puts him in one wild adventure after another.
Critic consensus: “Roberto Benigni misfires wildly with this adaptation of Pinocchio, and the result is an unfunny, poorly-made, creepy vanity project.”
