Decade: Rating: List Type:
Batman & Robin (1997)
Who's responsible: Director Joel Schumacher, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Why it's on the list: Gaining nearly three times as many votes as the next entry, this was a runaway loser. From the neon design to the overblown script to the infamous Batnipples, it's become a byword for franchise-killing and bad movie-making.
Redeeming feature: A good half of the population would argue for Alicia Silverstone's arse in the Batgirl suit; the rest for George Clooney in a tux.
Battlefield Earth (2000)
Who's responsible: Director Roger Christian, L. Ron Hubbard, the whole of Scientology.
Why it's on the list: John Travolta as a dreadlocked, 9ft. tall alien. Forest Whitaker as his dimwitted sidekick. Barry Pepper saving the world. Alien invaders kept at bay by thousand-year-old technology stockpiled by the good old US of A. The only way this could be more ridiculous would be if all those involved played it dead serious but looked as camp as Christmas� oh, wait.
Redeeming feature: When being viewed as a comedy, it's high-larious
The Love Guru (2008)
Who's responsible: Mike Myers
Why it's on the list: A comedy so bad that it made us question whether any of Myers' back-catalogue had ever been funny, this starts with an unoriginal character and borderline racist and sexist humour before heading straight for the toilet. When shagging elephants are your comedy centrepiece, something is seriously askew.
Redeeming feature: For the second time on this list, Justin Timberlake is the best thing in this. Here he's a well-endowed French-Canadian ice hockey star. Honestly, we were surprised too.
Raise the Titanic (1980)
Who's responsible: Director Jerry Jameson, screenwriter Adam Kennedy.
Why it's on the list: A film so expensive that its producer famously quipped it would have been cheaper to lower the Atlantic, this Titanic flopped at the box-office and caused author Clive Cussler, on whose book it was based, to deny Hollywood his books for 20 years (then he allowed Sahara, which is another story).
Redeeming feature: The sight of the wrecked Titanic sailing into New York is strangely moving.
Epic Movie (2007)
Who's responsible: Writer-directors Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer. Yet again.
Why it's on the list: A lazy collection of recreations of scenes from blockbuster movies and, for no obvious reason, the likes of Nacho Libre and Borat, but with added scatological humour. Even if that were forgivable, the waste of actual talent like Crispin Glover and Kids in the Hall's Kevin McDonald is not.
Redeeming feature: The aging Harry Potter cast gag is a good idea, briefly.
Heaven's Gate (1980)
Who's responsible: Director Michael Cimino.
Why it's on the list: The story goes that director Michael Cimino asked why no one was drinking champagne at his film's premiere, and was told, "Because they hate the movie, Michael." There are five uninterrupted minutes of fiddle playing - on roller skates - and Jeff Bridges throwing up, also on roller skates. But it's a Western - go figure.
Redeeming feature: The 219-minute cut is said to be considerably better than the original 149-minute version.
The Room (2004)
Meet the Spartans (2008)
The Avengers (1998)
Disaster Movie (2008)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
Freddy Got Fingered (2001)
Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997)
Street Fighter (1994)
Scary Movie (2000)
Son of the Mask (2005) (2005)
Howard the Duck (1986)
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
