11 Bad Movies With A Better Rotten Tomatoes Rating Than 'Batman V Superman'
As I'm sure many of you have heard by now, "Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice" has not critically lived up to the hype it has created over the past few years. In fact, many reviews have been extremely harsh on the Warner Bros. blockbuster.
And these rather harsh reviews were brought straight to Ben Affleck's attention during an interview following the movie's release, and, well, see for yourself.
Now, I haven't had a chance to see it yet -- please, no spoilers -- but I'm a little shocked by this reception, particularly how low the movie's rating is on Rotten Tomatoes:
For those of you who are unaware, Rotten Tomatoes is a website that pools together all the reviews a movie gets from major publications and comes up with an overall rating for the movie based on said reviews, probably using some sort of super genius and nerdy algorithm.
As of right now, the movie's rating stands at a dismal 29 percent on the ol' Tomatometer. And that's saying something, considering all these movies that I've listed below have higher ratings and are notoriously horrible.
1. "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never"
A 64 percent rating? That is unreal. This movie is essentially one hour and 45 minutes of little tween girls screaming, and maybe a minute or two of the Biebs crying.
On second thought, yeah, maybe I could stomach a 64 percent rating if it means getting to see a sad Justin Bieber without that sh*t-eating grin he's always sporting -- even if only for a moment.
2. "Herbie: Fully Loaded"
Uh, does the Batmobile have adorable little bug eyes for headlights? Didn't think so. Plus, seeing an innocent Lindsay Lohan reminds us all of a simpler time.
3. "Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace"
Man, did George Lucas & co. have an opportunity to do something big here. The man created one of the most iconic villains of all time, Darth Vader, and by creating prequels to his original trilogy, we were granted the chance to see this bad guy AS A KID, back when the dark side was just a little twinkle in his eye.
What did we actually end up seeing? A bunch of useless podracing and some other crap. But hey, still better than "Batman V Superman," apparently.
If you're a girl, and you didn't get your first sexual awakening during "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," then you most certainly got it during "Twilight," specifically during the scenes where Edward is leaping around with his vampire powers, carrying Bella in between bouts of teenage vampiric angst.
5. "Big Momma's House"
The joke is that Martin Lawrence is dressed like an old black woman, when, in fact, he is not an old black woman.
Now let me spend one hour and 39 minutes saying that to you over and over again, and you'll have essentially seen the movie.
6. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"
Sorry, Ben, but Nicolas Cage is a weird, hilarious dude, and he deserves every bit of his 41 percent rating because there is no bad mood I can be in that can't be lifted by Cage pretending to be a sorcerer.
7. "Sex And The City: The Movie"
Whether you're a total Carrie or such a Charlotte, there's a character in "Sex And The City: The Movie" for everyone!
Just kidding. Any guy who was forced to watch this monstrosity by his girlfriend knows this movie is bad, but, according to Rotten Tomatoes, "Batman V Superman" is worse.
8. "Entourage: The Movie"
Whether you're a total Turtle or such a Johnny Drama, there's a character in "Entourage: The Movie" for everyone!
Just kidding. Any girl who was forced to watch this monstrosity by her boyfriend knows this movie is bad, but... you get the picture.
9. "Spider-man 3"
Kind of unbelievable how high of a rating this has.
We were all psyched out of our minds when we heard that Venom was going to be the villain in the third movie. Venom is badass.
But then, Venom turned out kind of lame, played by Topher Grace, who will forever be known, at least in my eyes, as Eric Forman from "That '70's Show."
Pair that with lame montages of Peter Parker dancing like an idiot in his new evil black-suit makeover, and I'm wondering just how bad "Batman V Superman" really is.
10. "You Don't Mess With The Zohan"
As much as we all love Adam Sandler for ushering us all through our childhoods, the man has come out with some crappy movies in recent years.
He's no stranger to a Razzie nom -- an award given out to the worst movies of the year -- and Sandler movies like "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" are exactly why that's the case.
11. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop"
To say I was ecstatic when I saw this movie had a higher rating than "Batman V Superman" would be a colossal understatement.
Let me get this straight: You're telling me that Kevin James riding a segway through the mall and getting into all sorts of CRAZY hijinks is better than the long-anticipated showdown between two of the biggest heroes in the DC Universe?
Well that is simultaneously the funniest and saddest thing I've ever heard.
