Most widely-watched but universally-hated movies of all time

Slated for release in early December, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist tells the story behind the making of The Room, one of the most famous turkeys of all time. However, The Disaster Artist is about more than just a terrible movie earning an inexplicably strong following. Like Tim Burton’s Ed Wood, Franco’s flick is a testament to the power of clueless filmmaking itself, and the ridiculous movies that emerge as a result. These are the true rotten tomatoes and Golden Raspberry Award winners, at least some of which have garnered shocking levels of success in spite of--or most often because of--their sheer terribleness.

In the spirit of The Disaster Artist, Stacker has accumulated a list of the most widely watched, but universally hated, movies of all time. For the data, we searched IMDB for movies with over 25,000 user ratings. We then aggregated and weighted ratings from IMDBMetacritic and Rotten Tomatoes to create a proprietary “Stacker Score” for each film. Using the Stacker Score, we then ranked the top 50 films, counting down from worse to worst. Without further ado, we present the most widely watched, but universally hated, movies of all time.

#50. Ridiculous 6

Stacker Score: 28.50
IMDB Rating: 4.8
Metascore: 18
Tomatometer: 0%

Ridiculous 6 was the second feature film ever released by Netflix, following the success of Beasts of No Nation. Starring the motley crew of Adam Sandler, Terry Crews, Jorge Garcia, Taylor Lautner, Rob Schneider, and Luke Wilson, this over-the-top Western comedy became the most-streamed Netflix movie for any 30-day period despite a hearty panning by critics, including the humbling 0% Tomatometer designation.

#49. Halloween: Resurrection

Stacker Score: 28.25
IMDB Rating: 4.1
Metascore: 19
Tomatometer: 12%

As it goes with most horror franchises, the Halloween films grew progressively worse the further they distanced themselves from John Carpenter’s original classic. However, even built-in quality reductions could hardly explain the brazen terribleness of Halloween: Resurrection. The 8th installment of the series took place on the set of a reality TV show being broadcast from Michael Myers’ old home. Naturally, Myers himself shows up and heads begin to roll. Even a celebrity-studded cast, including scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, couldn’t save this turkey from being dead on arrival.

#48. The Love Guru

Stacker Score: 28.25
IMDB Rating: 3.8
Metascore: 24
Tomatometer: 13%

Michael Myers (the actor now, not the fictional serial killer) was still riding high off the success of the Austin Powers franchise when he delivered 2008’s The Love Guru, a painfully unfunny film that failed to win over audiences and critics alike. It told the story of Pitka, an American who starts his own self-help business after being raised by gurus. The fallout from The Love Guru was so instantaneous and staggering that Myers hasn’t championed a feature film since (though apparently Austin Powers 4 is in the works).

#47. Kangaroo Jack

Stacker Score: 28.00
IMDB Rating: 4.4
Metascore: 16
Tomatometer: 8%

Mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer is behind some of the biggest box office smashes of all time, however that doesn’t make him impervious to the occasional flop. For proof of the fact, look no further than Kangaroo Jack. The film told the story of two friends who lose $50,000 in mob money to a wild, computer animated kangaroo. Indeed, this wasn’t one of Bruckheimer’s finer moments.

#46. Batman & Robin

Stacker Score: 28.00
IMDB Rating: 3.7
Metascore: 28
Tomatometer: 10%

Tim Burton’s Batman marked an early and successful foray into the adventurous world of the dark knight. What followed were two sequels that were entertaining, but uneven at best. Then Batman & Robin came along to both build the coffin and put a nail it as well. Directed by Joel Schumacher, the outrageously cartoonish film cast George Clooney as the caped crusader, merely one among its many misfires, and pitted him against the likes of Mr Freeze and Poison Ivy. Clooney would end up shouldering much of the blame for the film’s poor reception, but it wasn’t really his fault. The movie was just plain (and famously) bad.

#45. Dragonball: Evolution

Stacker Score: 28.00
IMDB Rating: 2.6
Metascore: 45
Tomatometer: 15%

Based on a popular manga series, Dragonball: Evolution was turning off fans before it even reached theaters. Early trailers and leaked shots from the set revealed a tone-deaf, by-the-numbers movie that went big on orbs and other visuals, but fell far short in terms of character arc and plot development. The movie would end up matching the early negative hype, thereby entering the annals of terrible film fame.

#44. Universal Soldier: The Return

Stacker Score: 27.75
IMDB Rating: 4.1
Metascore: 24
Tomatometer: 5%

1992’s Universal Soldier, while not entirely well made, was entertaining enough to enjoy a strong shelf-life at a time when Blockbuster was king. However, that didn’t stop Universal Soldier: The Return from being released to little fanfare. Missing both the original director and one of its original stars (Dolph Lundgren), the follow up reeked of direct-to-video production and shameless cash grabbing. That said, it has marginally survived as a movie people love to hate. Nevertheless, later installments would wisely bring Dolph Lundgren back into the fold.

#43. The Last Airbender

Stacker Score: 27.50
IMDB Rating: 4.2
Metascore: 20
Tomatometer: 6%

Known primarily as the helmer of dramatic thrillers with twist endings, M. Knight Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender was supposed to represent a departure of sorts. However, it still fell into many of the same traps plaguing the director’s reputation at the time of its release. Among the movie’s gravest offenses was the fact that, in spite of an intriguing premise and visually enticing trailer, it was utterly boring to sit through.

42. Jaws 3-D

Stacker Score: 27.50
IMDB Rating: 3.6
Metascore: 27
Tomatometer: 11%

The original Jaws, about a shark terrorizing a vacation town. was an undisputed game changer upon its release in 1975. 1983’s Jaws 3-D, however, was an entirely different beast. Set in SeaWorld, the film was an all out disaster in every sense but the intended one. Apparently, the filmmakers were so focused on the 3D part that they forgot to make a compelling film to go along with it. While the movie would end up making decent bank, it moreover played into the unwritten rule of diminishing returns so ubiquitous among franchises at the time.

#41. Super Mario Bros.

Stacker Score: 27.50
IMDB Rating: 4.0
Metascore: Not Available
Tomatometer: 15%

By the early 1990s, Nintendo was basically the Disney Studios of the gaming world, and a plumber named Mario was definitely their Mickey Mouse. Hence, a Super Mario Bros feature film seemed only natural at the time. In the movie, Mario and Luigi traveled to an alternate dimension to save the princess from evil King Koopa. The flick was colorful, cheesy, amusing and fairly atrocious. On the heels of its poor reception, Nintendo quickly learned that sometimes it’s better to stick with what you know.

#40. The Legend of Hercules

Stacker Score: 27.25
IMDB Rating: 4.2
Metascore: 22
Tomatometer: 3%

The Legend of Hercules was one of two films about the mythic hero released in 2014, and as it turned out even one was more than enough. As the lesser of the two, The Legend of Hercules received a barrage of jeers from the critics, earning itself a paltry 3% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences were slightly less hostile, though not to the point of making the film anything short of a box office bomb and critical disaster.

#39. Movie 43

Stacker Score: 27.00
IMDB Rating: 4.3
Metascore: 18
Tomatometer: 4%

In the spirit of camp classics like The Kentucky Fried Movie came 2013’s Movie 43. It was a star studded affair that duly failed to live up to its ambitions, and thankfully didn’t kill any careers. So bad was the movie that critic Richard Roeper famously referred to it as the Citizen Kane of awful”.

#38. The Devil Inside

Stacker Score: 27.00
IMDB Rating: 4.2
Metascore: 18
Tomatometer: 6%

Horror movies are so commonly bad and/or cheesy that they often get graded on a curve by both audiences and critics. Not so with The Devil Inside, which was harshly panned across the board. The mockumentary style film told the story of a young woman who undergoes a series of ritualistic exorcisms while looking for her mother. The movie turned plenty of stomachs, not because of its gore, but rather its blatant foolishness.

#37. Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

Stacker Score: 27.00
IMDB Rating: 4.0
Metascore: 15
Tomatometer: 13%

As an early example of found footage horror, 1999’s Blair Witch Project terrified audiences and left substantial impact on the industry as a whole. All that and more is what made Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 such a staggering misfire upon its release a year later. Focusing on a group of tourists who watch the original film and then visit the same mythical woods, the sequel played it straight in terms of production value and horror cliches. The result was a bad, run of the mill movie that essentially rendered the franchise obsolete.

#36. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Stacker Score: 27.00
IMDB Rating: 3.7
Metascore: 22
Tomatometer: 12%

If you’re an adult between the age of 35 and 40, then 1987’s Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is perhaps the quintessential movie to watch again and ask yourself, “What was I thinking when I said I enjoyed this as a kid?” Suffice to say, the film was almost shockingly campy, and loaded with bad special effects. To see just how far your taste has come since the days of wearing Superman underwear, throw this one on and see how long you can last.

#35. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2

Stacker Score: 26.50
IMDB Rating: 4.4
Metascore: 13
Tomatometer: 5%

Telling the story of a mall cop up against a gang of organized crooks, 2009’s Paul Blart was a surprise hit in spite of its questionable quality. Naturally, that box office success mandated a sequel. Enter Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, which took the action to Vegas. The first time around was cheesy slapstick fun. The second time around was pure torture. Leave it to Hollywood to ruin an already fairly bad thing.

#34. Street Fighter

Stacker Score: 26.50
IMDB Rating: 3.8
Metascore: Not Available
Tomatometer: 15%

Based on a popular video game of the same name, 1994’s Street Fighter was a relative success at the box office, but nevertheless a bona fide atrocity in filmmaking. Starring Jean Claude Van Damme, a huge draw at the time, the film was skewered largely because it strayed too far from its arcade style roots. Conspicuously absent from the movie were the shouts of “Hadouken” or high flying backspins that made the game so addictive in the first place. It’s therefore no wonder that stars like Kylie Minogue would later express tremendous regret for signing on.

#33. The Cat in the Hat

Stacker Score: 26.25
IMDB Rating: 3.8
Metascore: 19
Tomatometer: 10%

On the heels of Ron Howard’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey came Bo Welch’s The Cat in the Hat with Mike Myers. The former was box office gold. The latter was a critical flop with the Golden Raspberry Award to show for it. Lauded primarily for its crude content, over the top performances, and ridiculously-fast pacing, The Cat in the Hat butchered Dr. Seuss’ legacy in more or less every single frame.

#32. One Missed Call

Stacker Score: 26.00
IMDB Rating: 4.0
Metascore: 24
Tomatometer: 0%

One would think that when a movie is truly terrible, all the critics would agree. However, it’s usually the case that at least one or two critics find something positive to say about any given commercial release. That’s what makes films like One Missed Call, and it’s Rotten Tomatoes score of 0%, so special. Based on a violent Japanese horror flick where characters have their deaths foretold via voicemail, the PG-13 Hollywood version scaled back on the gore and fun alike. What remained was a plodding, formulaic mess of a movie.

#31. Prom Night

Stacker Score: 25.75
IMDB Rating: 3.9
Metascore: 17
Tomatometer: 8%

Another PG-13 remake of a (marginally) superior film, 2008’s Prom Night aimed squarely for the teen market and sacrificed genuine thrills as a result. What could have been the terrifying tale of a teenage girl and her friends being stalked by a sadistic killer on prom night, was instead another cliche-ridden piece of drivel churned out by the Hollywood factory.

#30. The Fog

Stacker Score: 25.75
IMDB Rating: 3.6
Metascore: 27
Tomatometer: 4%

In case it’s not yet obvious, PG-13 remakes of R-rated horror classics typically make for awful moviegoing experiences. Such was certainly the case with 2005’s The Fog. It updated John Carpenter’s 1980 film while predictably stripping the content of anything compelling or original. The result? A boring exercise in bad horror.

#29. Speed 2: Cruise Control

Stacker Score: 25.50
IMDB Rating: 3.8
Metascore: 23
Tomatometer: 3%

Before he was John Wick or Neo, Keanu Reeves was Officer Jack Traven in the action packed 1994 film Speed. His chemistry with co-star Sandra Bullock was, among other things, what made the movie such a big hit. Needless to say, Reeves’ absence was felt greatly in Speed 2: Cruise Control, which put the action at sea and relied on far too many cliches to get its point across. Pair that with blatantly bad dialogue and you end up with a movie that should have called it quits as soon as Keanu did.

#28. Catwoman

Stacker Score: 25.50
IMDB Rating: 3.3
Metascore: 27
Tomatometer: 9%

Halle Berry’s veritable star power wasn’t enough to save Catwoman from the doldrums of bad moviemaking. Thanks to inane dialogue, clunky directing and kinky overtones, the naughty comic book character landed on the screen with a dull thud. Such overtly bad execution has subsequently earned the film a healthy following among lovers of low-tier cinema. All others are well advised to get their comic book fix elsewhere.

#27. Dungeons & Dragons

Stacker Score: 24.50
IMDB Rating: 3.7
Metascore: 14
Tomatometer: 10%

Awash with cheap special effects and bad dialogue, Dungeons & Dragons was a massively disappointing adaptation of the popular role playing game. Considering how the game itself requires intelligence, imagination and talent, one must wonder why the movie was missing all of those things and more. This one was a true bomb that looks only worse with age.

#26. Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd

Stacker Score: 24.25
IMDB Rating: 3.4
Metascore: 19
Tomatometer: 10%

Not one to let the absence of two essential actors get in the way, Hollywood churned out Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. The movie was a prequel to the wildly popular comedy hit Dumb & Dumber, which was quite inventive in spite of its name. The prequel, unfortunately, took that name to heart.

#25. In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale

Stacker Score: 23.75
IMDB Rating: 3.8
Metascore: 15

Fewer names are more synonymous with bad filmmaking than Uwe Boll, who has earned himself a reputation as being one of the world’s worst directors. You certainly won’t find evidence to the contrary when watching In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. Starring Jason Statham as a man who sets out to rescue his kidnapped wife and avenge his son’s death, the film was too painfully boring to even qualify as camp.

#24. Jack and Jill

Stacker Score: 23.50
IMDB Rating: 3.4
Metascore: 23

Adam Sandler is no stranger to making terrible movies for lots of money, and yet somehow Jack and Jill stands out from the herd as being especially awful. The film saw Sandler playing both Jack, a middle of the road family man, and Jill, his overbearing sister. The laughs were few and far between to say the least, films don’t get much more cloying than this.

Spoofing vampire movies might have seemed like a fairly easy task in 2010, yet somehow Vampires Suck managed to screw it up. Ripping a plotline straight out of Twilight, the parody brought whole new levels of meaning to the word “suck”. As such, the film was nothing but an endless series of bad sight gags and obvious jokes, to diligently unfunny effect.

#22. The Avengers

Stacker Score: 22.75
IMDB Rating: 3.7
Metascore: 12
Tomatometer: 5%

One might hear the word “Avengers” and think exclusively of the comic book series and subsequent films. 1998’s Avengers would probably prefer it that way. Based on a TV series of the same name, the film starred Uma Thurman and Ralph Fiennes as two British agents who team up to stop a madman from destroying the world. The movie managed to offend virtually everyone, meaning fans of the original TV show, critics and general enthusiasts alike. One reviewer would go on to say that The Avengers was so bad it gave “other cinematic clunkers like Ishtar and Howard the Duck a good name”.

Who knew the Rapture could make for such lackluster cinema? Thanks to Left Behind, we all know now. The 2014 film starred Nicolas Cage as one among many people stuck on earth after millions vanish. Sadly, it was pure amateur hour, and the film was largely reviled. We’ll assume this movie just outright doesn’t exist in heaven.

By staying true to its source, 1995’s Mortal Kombat was among the better video game-to-film adaptations of it’s time. The sequel, however, was a pure cash grab brimming with bad graphics and redundant action sequences. Extreme fighting never felt so monotonous as it did here, no matter how much cheesy electronic music was involved.

When it comes to relatively bad films that earn respective cult followings, Robocop 2 was entertaining enough to be a contender. Robocop 3, on the other hand, was direct-to-video level drivel with almost no repeat watchability factor going for it. In this installment, the heroic half man/half machine battled android ninjas among other adversaries. Indeed, future Detroit had never looked so dated and Robocop had never seemed so cheap.

While there are indeed an endless variety of horror movies that one could parody, there are only so many ways to parody them.

Master of schlock Uwe Boll makes another appearance on the list with 2005’s BloodRayne. Adapted from a video game, the film tells the tale of a vampire who avenges the rape of her mother. In addition to being a painful watch, Bloodrayne was a box office disaster. Of course, that wasn’t going to stop Boll from making a bunch of a direct-to-video follow ups.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into a movie theater, 1987’s Jaws: The Revenge managed to lower the bar.

Everything about the movie said rush job, and our favorite murderous sea creature hasn’t reared his head since.

Sometimes a film is so bad that the public seems to take it personally. So went Gigli, the 2003 Martin Brest movie starring then-couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. For the media and masses alike, critiquing the movie simply wasn’t enough, and they went all open season on the celebrity couple. Lopez would later claim that being eviscerated by the press over the movie prompted her to question whether she belonged in the business at all.

They say like father, like son, but Son of the Mask definitely argues otherwise. The aggressively stupid sequel to 1995’s The Mask sees Jamie Kennedy trying to fill Jim Carrey’s shoes to expectedly awful results. No cult following in the world can put this box office dud in the black.

Rumor has it if you misbehave in film school, they lock you in a theater and play nothing but Uwe Boll movies. If such a thing is true, that’s far scarier than anything you’ll find in 2003’s House of the Dead. The movie was supposed to be about zombies, instead it looked like it was made by one.

A film so famously schlocky that it’s frequently honored as “the best worst movie of all time”, Troll 2 is a cornerstone of cult cinema. Indeed, the movie sits right next to The Room (which doesn’t make the list due to a relatively high Tomatometer of 29%) as a film that lives on in popular culture strictly because of its obvious ineptitude. Far more entertaining than the film itself is the 2009 documentary Best Worst Movie, where one of the actors revisits the cast and crew, who are pretty much exactly like one might expect.

Poking fun at movies like 300 along with other sword-and-sandal epics, 2008’s Meet the Spartans was yet one more sterile parody from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. In addition to making uninspired and obvious references, the movie freely tossed in a healthy mix of pop culture figures like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, not that it improved anything.

Like all the other abominable parodies from Friedberg and Seltzer, Epic Movie earned its 2% Rotten Tomatoes score and 2.3 IMDB rating one completely tacky joke at a time. The film took on the big franchises of its era and fell far short of skewering them as per the norm. Future civilizations might one day see this movie and wonder if our society was suffering from severe cultural confusion. Then they’ll notice that Epic Movie actually made money and have their suspicions confirmed.

Touted as a modern day Ed Wood, Uwe Boll served up all the inferior filmmaking, minus the unintentional laughs.

Before there was Troll 2, or The Room, there was Manos: The Hands of Fate, the original best worst movie ever made. The low budget 1966 clunker about a lost family that stumbles upon a clan of devil worshippers has achieved legendary cult status over the years. That’s thanks in part to an appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and also some wild backstory antics. For example, writer, director and star Harold P. Warren thought it would help to have a beauty contest winner in the film, so he submitted actress Diane Mahree in a beauty pageant without her knowledge or consent. Classy!

Babies might be irresistible in real life and on social media, yet somehow audiences and critics alike were able to resist their charms in Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2. Continuing the adventures of super intelligent babies who communicate to one another using “baby talk,” the film failed in virtually every possible regard. Consequently, it’s number one on the list of widely watched, universally hated films, with no real cult status to speak of. May we all learn from its many grave mistakes.
