Most of the awards shows we see in Hollywood consist of them patting themselves on their backs for their very best work – which is fair, but ultimately not that amusing and/or helpful for us regular people when trying to decide what to watch.
That’s where the Razzies come in – and on this list, they’re coming up with 13 of the worst of all time.
1. Freddy Got Fingered (2001)
I mean, who thought that title was a good idea? Only 11% of Rotten Tomatoes viewers, that’s who.
2. Showgirls (1995)
I think so many of us saw this because we grew up with Jessie Spano, but Rotten Tomatoes viewers only gave it a 22% score.
3. Swept Away (2002)
Everyone loves a beach movie…but 95% of Rotten Tomatoes viewers didn’t love this one.
4. Striptease (1996)
I guess Rotten Tomatoes viewers really aren’t fans of the stripper genre – it only has a 12% score.
5. Gigli (2003)
I’m completely shocked that this even has a 3% liked rate on Rotten Tomatoes, given what seemed to be ubiquitous hate.
6. The Postman (1997)
Hollywood really wanted this to be a serious hit, but sadly, it’s 9% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests otherwise.
7. Catwoman (2004)
Halle Berry looked super hot, and that’s about where the positive ends here. It’s got only a 9% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
8. An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn (1998)
This title is a mouthful, but with an 8% score on Rotten Tomatoes, don’t bother trying to remember it.
9. Shining Through (1992)
A little less than half the people – 44% – on Rotten Tomatoes think this one is worth your time.
10. Wild Wild West (1999)
Despite Will Smith and a slapping song, more than 80% of Rotten Tomatoes viewers say to skip it.
11. Indecent Proposal (1993)
I was shocked to find that only 35% of Rotten Tomatoes voters liked what I kind of thought of as a period classic.
12. Battlefield Earth (2000).
Science fiction fans are epically finicky, and with a 3% score on Rotten Tomatoes, this one is not the exception.
13. Color of Night (1994)
80% of viewers weren’t swayed at all by 1990s Bruce Willis.
I’ve seen a few of these, and I don’t know…maybe I didn’t hate them as much as the people voting on Rotten Tomatoes did.
