The 15 Rotten-est Comedies On Rotten Tomatoes
Some movies are so bad they deserve to be publicly shamed. Then there are bad comedies, which deserve to be publicly executed. Comedies that don’t make you laugh are the worst of all because you can’t even laugh at how bad the movie is: it doesn’t deserve your laughs! Here are 15 of the lowest-ranking comedies on Rotten Tomatoes.
Baby Geniuses 2: Super Babies
Ever want to see John Voight act alongside some crime-fighting babies? Well, in that case, you should still avoid watching Baby Geniuses 2 and get a different dream because it has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Why? Seriously, why? Why would anyone make a sequel to Baby Geniuses, a 1999 film whose existence, from its title on down, appeared to be a cruel joke about the gullibility of the lowest common denominator?” - AV Club
A Thousand Words
Eddie Murphy’s Pluto Nash may have a 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, but that's still infinitely better than A Thousand Words which received 0%.
“One word will do - Sucks.” - Richard Propes
Kickin’ It Old School
Kickin’ It Old School follows Jamie Kennedy reassembling his former breakdance group after he wakes up from a 20-year coma. This 2% Jamie Kennedy movie will make you wish you were watching Son Of The Mask instead.
“Although technically a coming-of-age film, Kickin' It is, in every way, regressive.” - Time Out
National Lampoon’s Golddiggers
This movie follows two idiots who try to rob some women, then marry the women, then the women try to kill them. This movie got a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is strange because, when has a National Lampoon movie ever been bad?!
“So stupefyingly hideous that after watching it, you'll need to bathe in 10 gallons of disinfectant, get a full-body scrub and shampoo with vinegar to remove the scummy residue that remains.” - Washington Post
The Ridiculous 6
This Adam Sandler spaghetti western spoof received a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, even though my sister told me it was “really funny.” This is how you learn who you can really trust out there. The first movie with Rob Schneider to fail, I believe.
“The best that can be said for the movie is that it's not as offensive as it could have been.” - Las Vegas Weekly
A western starring comedy legends John Candy and Richard Lewis, Wagons East received a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. John Candy as the straight man? Get out of town!
“Although a comedy rife in lively characters, Wagons East! affords star John Candy one of the poorest, drabbest, and thoroughly unfunniest roles of his career.” - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Look Who’s Talking Now!
You loved Look Who’s Talking. You adored Look Who’s Talking Too. Now buckle up for the hilarious thrill ride that is Look Whos Talking Now. They’ve added talking dogs to this talking baby series, which garners 0% on the Tomatometer.
“One nagging point: Pic seems aimed at kidvid market, but it revels in its ongoing references to open sexuality, including a reprise of opening credits that run over a microscopic view of squirming sperm. Very tasteful.” - Variety
Police Academy 4: Citizens Patrol
The film that probably should have been the sign to end the Police Academy series, although they went on to make three more. Another 0% movie on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Jim Drake is credited with the direction and Gene Quintano with the script, though they'd probably appreciate it if you kept it to yourself.” - Chicago Tribune.
The Master Of Disguise
Dana Carvey’s biggest failure, The Master Of Disguise, answers the question “What if a guy was a turtle?” The film still towers above some other entries, with a whopping 1% on Rotton Tomatoes.
“In a 40-year career in horror, David Cronenberg never dreamed up an image as chilling or stomach-churning as Dana Carvey as a human turtle.” - Screen Crush
Daddy Day Camp
Cuba Gooding Jr. lets Eddie Murphy have the day off by taking over the protagonist reins in Daddy Day Camp. Truly a movie no one was asking for that earned itself a delicious 1% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Never work with children or animals. Unless you're a child or an animal, in which case, never work with Cuba Gooding Jr.” - BBC
Epic Movie from directors/writers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer is without a doubt one of the worst things you’ll ever see. This pop culture spoof-fest is nothing but references and fart jokes. It has a 2% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Friedberg and Seltzer are completely tone-deaf when it comes to the art of film parody, conjuring none of the adolescent brilliance of Airplane! or even the good-natured irony of 2001's Not Another Teen Movie.” - Austin Chronicle
Disaster Movie from directors/writers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer is without a doubt one of the other worst things you’ll ever see. This pop culture spoof-fest is nothing but references and fart jokes… again. It has a 1% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“There's no nice way to say this, so I'll just say it: Writer/directors Friedberg and Seltzer are a scourge. They're a plague on our cinematic landscape, a national shame, a danger to our culture.” - Austin Chronicle
Meet The Spartans
Meet The Spartans from directors/ writers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer is without a doubt one of the other other worst things you’ll ever see. This pop culture spoof-fest is nothing but references and fart jokes… again again. It has a 2% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“This was the worst movie I've ever seen, so bad that I hesitate to label it a 'movie' and thus reflect shame upon the entire medium of film.” - Slate
This 2008 stoner comedy featuring Jonah Hill, Steve Zahn, and Justin Long was attacked for its complete lack of original jokes. Strange Wilderness has just 2% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“About as funny as watching a cute animal die a long slow death - and probably as painful.” - Empire Magazine
Jack And Jill
Jack and Jill joins The Ridiculous 6 as one of Adam Sandler’s worst movies of all time. With only a 3% on Rotten Tomatoes, this movie will make you happy that there's only one Adam Sandler in all of his other movies.
“I'm not saying we SHOULD take Pacino's Oscar away from him because of this movie. I'm just saying that's a conversation I'm willing to have.” - Mad About Movies
