This two-time Razzie win has quite a collection of poor performances. It might be possible that Demi Moore simply has chosen bad roles. If the roles are decided by her agent, then maybe Moore just needs a new agent. After three decades in the film industry, Moore’s films continue to rate poorly.
Even a film that requires emotional depth like “The Scarlett Letter” did not exactly blow us away. It scored 41% with audiences and 13% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Truth be told, Moore’s best years were back in the 80s in classic flicks such as “St. Elmo’s Fire.”
She had one good performance playing herself which put her on the showbiz map and that was not in “The Bling Ring” – if you know what I mean. Unfortunately, it was aimed at “adult’ audiences and not the kind that enjoys a mature production, with meaningful character development.
Paris Hilton just may be the graveyard of all movies. “The Hottie and Nottie” with its laughable lines and lack of storyline scored 6% with “Rotten Tomatoes.” And what is worse, is “National Lampoon’s Pledge This” fared even worse, achieving 0% on the website. To be honest, it's a bit of a stretch to even call Paris Hilton an actress.
Her cringe-worth performance in “Gigli” has gone down as the worst in film history. With the exception of embarrassing seduction scenes, the actress seems to be out of place and wanting enthusiasm in much of the film. While “Gigli” is certainly her worst to date, there are several contenders for the no.2 spot.
These include J-Lo’s role as Marisa Ventura in “Maid in Manhattan,” Ramona in “Hustlers” and Claire Peterson in “The Boy Next Door.” She has been nominated four times for a Golden Raspberry for Worst Actress, making her a regular Razzie contender. Nice to see her on the same list as her husband.
Eddie Murphy has a knack for racking up Golden Raspberry nominations. During the late noughties, the actor was a regular on the list of nominations, appearing consecutively in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Murphy reached an all-time low with “Norbit.” The film scored 4.1/10 on “IMDB,” but “Rotten Tomatoes” obliterated it, giving it 9%.
It goes without saying that Murphy took home the Golden Raspberry on that occasion. The sequel “Coming 2 America” did not help to revive Murphy’s reputation, garnering all-around terrible reviews. But let's face it - he is still one of the funniest guys in the history of TV and film.
There is no denying that David Spade has been making people laugh for a long time - but that's as far as it gets. Films such as “The Wrong Missy,” “Joe Dirt” and “Grown Ups 2” do not exactly demand much of David Spade. The actor may fashion himself as a stand-up comedian and keep applying for comedy roles, but all his jokes generate are awkward laughs.
Speaking of awkwardness, instead of convincing audiences that Tim Morris was falling for the “wrong” Missy, Spade just seemed awkward throughout the movie. It is hard not to see why the film scored 32% on “Rotten Tomatoes” and 5.7 on “IMDB."
