1997: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

Critic Score: 11/100

User Score: 3.7/10

Synopsis: “A group of martial arts warriors have only six days to save the Earth from an extra-dimensional invasion.”

Critic Review: “It’s another of those movies that sets the mind to dreaming of a revised ratings system, one that might include a new category: A (adults admitted only when accompanied by a simple-minded 10-year-old).”

-Lawrence Van Gelder / New York Times


1998: The Avengers

Critic Score: 12/100

User Score: 3.7/10

Synopsis: “Two British agents team up to stop Sir August de Wynter from destroying the world with a weather-changing machine.”

Critic Review: “When a movie is really, really bad, they don’t screen it at all. Reviewers must go to the theaters on Friday and run back to the office to write for Saturday, a day many people don’t see a newspaper. This was the case with “The Avengers.””

-Barbara Shulgasser / San Francisco Examiner


1999: baby Geniuses

Critic Score: 6/100

User Score: 2.6/10

Synopsis: “Scientist hold talking, super-intelligent babies captive, but things take a turn for the worse when a mix-up occurs between a baby genius and its twin.”

Critic Review: “Bad films are easy to make, but a film as unpleasant as “Baby Geniuses” achieves a kind of grandeur.”

-Roger Ebert


2000: Strippers

Critic Score: 5/100

User Score: 4.3/10

Synopsis: “In a disastrous economy, after loosing his job, Alan dreams a series of bizarre comedic worst case scenarios that could happen if society’s “strippers” get a hold of him.”

Critic Review: “Jorge Ameer’s ”Strippers” belongs to that vast cinematic underbelly of semiprofessional made-for-video movies that for reasons known only to God are lucky enough to enjoy a thoroughly undeserved theatrical release.”

-Jorge Ameer / New York Times


2001: Freddy Got Fingered

Critic Score: 13/100

User Score: 4.5/10

Synopsis: “An unemployed cartoonist moves back in with his parents and younger brother Freddy. When his parents demand he leave, he begins to spread rumors that his father is sexually abusing Freddy.”

Critic Review: “This movie doesn’t scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn’t the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn’t below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels.”

-Roger Ebert


2002: Vulgar

Critic Score: 5/100

User Score: 5.3/10

Synopsis: “A man who performs as a children’s birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.”

Critic Review: “To call it a comedy suggests there may be laughs in it; the only laughter Vulgar generates are the kind of involuntary chortles you expel from the back of your throat when you see something that affects your lower digestive system.”

-Buzz McClain / AllMovie


2003: The Singing Forest

Critic Score: 1/100

User Score: 1.6/10

Synopsis: “Two lovers are killed during the Holocaust. One reincarnates first. He has a twenty two year old daughter who falls in love with who her father believes is his past life lover.”

Critic Review: “The Singing Forest’ was written and directed by Jorge Ameer, whose film ‘Strippers’ opened three years ago and remained the single worst movie I had ever reviewed — until now.”

-Stephen Holden / New York Times


2004: National Lampoon’s Gold Diggers

Critic Score: 6/100

User Score: 2.9/10

Synopsis: “A pair of losers marry two elderly sisters, thinking they’ll inherit their fortune and Beverly Hills estate.”

Critic Review: “Imagine a horrible parallel universe, where Pauly Shore is allowed to direct a remake of “Harold and Maude.” The result couldn’t be much worse than “National Lampoon’s Gold Diggers,” a movie so filled with contemptible, ugly and unfunny characters that it is physically difficult to watch.”

-Peter Hartlaub / San Francisco Chronicle


2005: Chaos

Critic Score: 1/100

User Score: 3.2/10

Synopsis: “Two girls, looking to score some ecstasy at a rave, follow a young man to a house where terror awaits. There, a gang of felons capture and torment the girls, drawing them into a nightmare of violence.”

Critic Review: “A film I regret having seen. I urge you to avoid it. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s “only” a horror film, or a slasher film. It is an exercise in heartless cruelty and it ends with careless brutality. The movie denies not only the value of life, but the possibility of hope.”

-Roger Ebert


2006: Date Movie

Critic Score: 11/100

User Score: 2.7/10

Synopsis: “Spoof of romantic comedies which focuses on a man, his crush, his parents, and her father.”

Critic Review: “Anyone old enough to date at all is too mature for the stupid jokes in warmed-over ‘Date Movie’”

-Ruthe Stein / San Francisco Chronicle


2007: Daddy Day Camp

Critic Score: 13/100

User Score: 3.0/10

Synopsis: “Seeking to offer his son the satisfying summer camp experience that eluded him as a child, the operator of a neighborhood daycare center opens his own camp, only to face financial hardship and stiff competition from a rival camp.”

Critic Review: “If you looked in the dictionary under the word “boring,” after the variety of definitions we’ve all become familiar with you would see a more recent addition: any of Cuba Gooding Jr.’s “family friendly” films […] ‘Daddy Day Camp’ is so bland and tasteless it looks like Gooding himself had trouble staying awake during half the scenes. ”

-Rafe Teisch / Cinema Blend


2008: The Hottie & the Nottie

Critic Score: 7/100

User Score: 1.9/10

Synopsis: “A woman agrees to go on a date with a man only if he finds a suitor for her unattractive best friend.”

Critic Review: “We’ll always have Paris, at least to kick around, thanks to a zombiefied performance worthy of George Romero in this limp-dick of a comedy.”

-Peter Travers / Rolling Stone


2009: Miss March

Critic Score: 7/100

User Score: 5.0/10

Synopsis: “A young man awakens from a four-year coma to hear that his once virginal high-school sweetheart has since become a centerfold in one of the world’s most famous men’s magazines.”

Critic Review: “This is bad. Not bad in a way that it might be fun to see when inebriated. Bad in a way from which only death provides immunity. Forget waterboarding – just show Guantanamo detainees Miss March and they’ll say anything.”

-James Berardinelli / Reel Views

*Editors opinion: Whitest Kids U’ Know is one of the greatest shows ever.


2010: Vampires Suck

Critic Score: 18/100

User Score: 3.5/10

Synopsis: “A spoof of vampire-themed movies, where teenager Becca finds herself torn between two boys. As she and her friends wrestle with a number of different dramas, everything comes to a head at their prom.”

Critic Review: “…it’s the best of the bunch. Not because it’s good, but because it’s only unbelievably boring while all the others have been unbearably irritating.”

-Josh Tyler / Cinema Blend


2011: Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

Critic Score: 9/100

User Score: 3.3/10

Synopsis: “A kid from the Midwest moves out to Hollywood in order to follow in his parents footsteps — and become a porn star.”

Critic Score: 9/100

User Score: 4.2/10

Synopsis: “Craig and Elise had all the ingredients for an ideal life. … Then, on one sunny day, their perfect world is irrevocably shattered. Leaving their five year old son, Ben, alone for only a moment, Craig is horrified to see him being abducted from their own front yard.”

Critic Review: “Lean, nasty, and patently absurd, ‘The Tortured’ plays like one long scream of agony.”

-The Village Voice


2013: Scary Movie 5

Critic Score: 11/100

User Score: 3.5/10

Synopsis: “A couple begin to experience some unusual activity after bringing their lost nieces and nephew home. With the help of home-surveillance cameras, they learn they’re being stalked by a nefarious demon.”

Critic Review: “It’s not only that none of the spoofs are even remotely funny (most of the gags are either to do with physical pain or flatulence issues), but also that none feel appropriate enough for the films target audience.”

-Jamie Neish / Empty Screens


2014: Septic Man

Critic Score: 8/100

User Score: 4.1/10

Synopsis: “A sewage worker gets trapped inside a septic tank during a water contamination crisis and undergoes a hideous transformation.”

Critic Review: “Nasty, disgusting, and every bit as ugly-looking as its otherwise apt title implies, but worst of all painfully pointless, stupid, and boring as hell, “Septic Man” does absolutely nothing right, other than grossing you out with its repulsive images to the point of throwing up”

Geroge Beremov / Cine Marvellous


2015: United Passions

Critic Score: 1/100

User Score: 2.1/10

Synopsis: “Follows the passing of the FIFA baton through three association presidents: Jules Rimet, Joao Havelange, and Sepp Blatter.”

Critic Review: “What follows should be a gripping, informative drama traversing world wars and world politics… what actually follows is car crash you can’t help but rubber-neck… this is FIFA’s attempt at cinema, this is United Passions…”

-Mirror UK


2016: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Critic Score: 2/100

User Score: 5.5/10

Synopsis: “Documentarian Dinesh D’Souza analyzes the history of the Democratic Party and what he thinks are Hillary Clinton’s true motivations.”

Critic Review: “Little more than an extended version of the kind of political screeds that can be found online with only a minimum of effort, this is just a terrible movie.”

-Roger Ebert


2017: The Emoji Movie

Critic Score: 12/100

User Score: 2.9/10

Synopsis: “Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, sets out on a journey to become a normal emoji.”

Critic Review: “It is one of the darkest, most dismaying films I have ever seen, much less one ostensibly made for children.”

-Emily Yoshida / Vulture

WTF? The majority of these reviews were written by Michael Moore, er, I mean, Roger Ebert, a.k.a. Humorless Progressive Sh^thead. I can think of 4 films right off the top of my head that are worse than the worst of these. I'm surprised Roger didn't eat the films as he reviewed them.

You know, something has been bothering me about 2016's Hillary's America, and I've finally put my finger on it. The review is: *“Little more than an extended version of the kind of political screeds that can be found online with only a minimum of effort, this is just a terrible movie.”

-Roger Ebert*

The movie was released in 2016. Ebert died in 2013. Unless he's been able to send his reviews from Hell (I imagine they wouldn't have any problem securing the film itself, seeing as how Hillary was Lucifer's candidate), there's no way Ebert could have reviewed this film. So either the review is fake, the review is wrongly attributed, or this is just some political hit piece. The middle one is most likely, although the last is possible, too.
