1. Twilight (2008)
I was really excited for this movie for a long time, and then it came out and it made me laugh. Like, in places where I was pretty sure I wasn't supposed to. The dialogue was awkward and cut off before it should have.

Bella: Do you have contacts?
Edward: No. It's the lighting. -Hurriedly walks away-

Perfect parody of the books. 10 Stars. Hilarious!

Did anyone else notice that the entire movie was in some weird '80s-horror-movie blue?

Redeeming Quality:
If only it were a comedy...

2. Vampires Suck (2010)
Okay, I take the comedy part back.

People who added this item 1388  Average listal rating (865 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
3. Bolt (2008)
Miley Cyrus' voice really bugs me. Unusually so. Well, I guess for a kid's movie it really wasn't bad.

...Maybe not.

Redeeming Quality:
Its audience was not me.
Dierdre's rating:

4. Year One (2009)
I love Michael Cera. I love tons of his movie, I love his awkwardness, I think he's adorable.

I absolutely hated this movie. It had its charming moments, but overall, it just made me groan.

Zed: "You could be my right-hand man."
Oh: "I've seen what you do with your right hand. No, thank you."

"Oh no, Michael Cera! My acting career was just eaten by a mastadon."

Redeeming Quality: Olivia Wilde

5. Bring It On (2000)
I'm not a fan of cheerleaders, but after seeing this movie, I just pity them. Please spare a couple brain cells and avoid this fail-fest.

Redeeming Quality:

6. Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005)
I've heard good things about the original Herbie. Unfortunately, I've never seen it. After seeing Lindsay Lohan in this version, I don't think I ever will. Just overall, it was like a train wreck: It's so bad, but you can't stop watching.

Points, however, to the adorable car.

7. Valentine's Day (2010)
I went to go see this with my then-boyfriend. I felt bad for taking him to see it. It's probably why he broke up with me.

I can't believe a movie would pay for Julia Roberts and Jamie Foxx and only give them, like, 5 minutes of screen time. Most of it went to the mockery the world calls acting coming from Ashton Kutcher. It was a whole bunch of famous people in a movie with absolutely no plot.

Thanks, Hollywood, for tricking me out of my money once again.

Redeeming Quality: The adorable attempt at acting by Taylor Swift.

8. Marie Antoinette (2006)
...What? What did I just watch? Was that about Marie Antoinette? Seriously? It was a two-hour montage of pink pastries and pretty shoes. No one bothered with plot, or dialogue, or anything.

No, just no.

Redeeming Quality:
When I remembered halfway through the film Kirsten Dunst played Claudia in Interview With the Vampire.
Dierdre's rating:

People who added this item 621  Average listal rating (426 ratings) 3.2  IMDB Rating 2.8 
9. Dragonball: Evolution (2009)
Another movie I saw with a then-boyfriend.
I, like many others, had nostalgic feelings for this movie.

The movie was so bad the projector refused to play it 30 minutes into the movie. Seriously.


The movie theater felt the same way and gave us free tickets for the next time we came.

Question: Why is Goku white? And who decided that ruining childhood memories would be okay?

Redeeming Quality:
It didn't actually have anything to do with Dragonball.

10. Jennifer's Body (2009)
I'm on the "flag team".
We are not that hot.

Apparently, this movie was trying to be contemporary and satirical.
It did neither.
Although, I did find it hysterically funny.

And whoever did the script needs to be euthanaized.
Do we teenagers really talk like that?

Don't get me wrong, I ADORE Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. (And Adam Brody, and pretty much the entire cast.) Somehow, though it just fell flat.

Also, the plot made no sense.

Redeeming Quality: Two hours of this:

11. Son of the Mask (2005)
I have seen this movie twice on TV. How did people not cry during this? It was appallingly bad.

Check on its Listal page. Most of the mentions are for "Worst Movies of All Time."

Redeeming Quality:

Dierdre's rating:

People who added this item 1708  Average listal rating (1064 ratings) 5.4  IMDB Rating 5.8 
12. Cheaper by the Dozen (2003)
Too large a cast, Hilary Duff, no real comedy, etc.

I didn't like this movie at all. Maybe I'm judging it a little harshly, but there was just nothing memorable or even anything interesting.

It told me nothing remotely intriguing about family values, or Mormons.

Redeeming Quality:
I was just told that the family isn't Mormon.

Dierdre's rating:

People who added this item 121  Average listal rating (77 ratings) 3.1  IMDB Rating 2.5 
13. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (2009)
...What the heck?

Here, just watch this...

I hope no one has to experience this movie ever again.

Redeeming Quality:
It could be used as an effective means of torture.

Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 22 8:42
Megan Fox a Redeeming Quality? That is the point where you know a film is in trouble.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 22 12:14

Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Jun 22 12:52

Man, talk crap about some people's obsessions and they get really upset. They'll understand why that's so funny in the future. There isn't a single movie on this list that I liked (maybe Cheaper by the Dozen a little because Tom Welling is a hottie) and I too find that "Miley Cyrus' voice really bugs me. Unusually so." And if that's what you have to listen to for 2 hours then it is a legitimate reason not to like it.

Also, I respect Justin Beiber for being a talented kid, really, but that "documentary" was just an excuse to make money off silly little girls and their parents who spoil them rotten. I work at a movie theater and that was one of the worst movies as far as customers go. We even had one girl tell her grandpa "You're not my favorite Grandpa anymore" just cause he wouldn't get her some candy. And then he gave in 5 minutes later. Spoiled much.

Okay, rant over.

Year One was so stupid I loved it. Cera and Black were a great team.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Sep 11 2:02
Really good list with spot on notes. Except for Bolt I think Miley is great and the films cool.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Sep 26 0:42
Wow you went all the shining on Justin Bieber.
Great list man.
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Oct 31 21:19
I'm with you on all, except "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus." It's called "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus." If you expect it to be anything more than a soggy crapfest, it's your own fault. :D

My dad has taken me to see a lot of movies. Usually, he'll say, "you're going to love this movie". Usually, he's right. In fact, he's only been wrong once.

Wing Commander

The only good thing about this movie is that the projector broke about an hour into it and we got free tickets for our next movie (we used them to see The Lord of the Rings). It is the only movie my dad apologized for taking me to see.
