In filming history, no movie has been more unsuccessful than “Gigli,” and no film which has been more popular for being so bad. It originally drew audiences because Bennifer – Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck – were a super couple at the time, meaning numerous viewers were curious to see what the super couple had in store for them.
What they had in store for viewers was some of the worst dialog ever and cringeworthy scenes. Little wonder it scooped up at the Golden Raspberries and Stinker Awards and barely made a tenth of its budget back at the box office.
“Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot”
It is hard for us to take this film seriously. And it seems like we were not the only ones. With its outrageous storyline, poor dialogue, and dismal acting, we’re hardly surprised that “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot” did not bag all the Golden Razzies for 1992. The only explanation is that the other nominees must have been really bad.
The mere fact that a mother gets away with embarrassing her son while he is trying to prevent someone from taking his life, and she ends up preventing it from happening, is just one of the aspects making this film a cinematic failure.
What would the Golden Razzies be without Sylvester Stallone? As this New York actor has taken home the most Golden Razzie awards, it goes without saying that whatever Stallone is doing, he needs to stop doing it. One thing Stallone should not have done was “Rocky IV.”
The film won five Golden Razzies that year including Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst New Star, and Worst Musical Score. Another thing that could not have made Stallone any happier was not only being awarded Worst Actor of 1985, but he was the director of “Rocky IV.”
What happens when you make an ex-playmate the lead of your romantic comedy? “Dirty Love” happens, and most audience members take a trip to the edge of their sanity. The dialog seems to fit an absurd reality dating show, while the events which take place are beyond ludicrous.
The film may not have been trying to take itself seriously, starring Jenny McCarthy and ex-model Carmen Electra, but then the creators cannot be surprised at earning Golden Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, and obviously, Worst Actress.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”
This film probably has divided viewers. Nolan purists who were obsessed with “The Dark Knight” trilogy struggled to see their caped crusader in Zach Snyder’s rendition. However, Zach Snyder has a loyal fanbase, and they would stick by his works no matter what. Then, there was “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and audience members were not sure what to make of it.
There are still some convinced of its merit. The Golden Raspberry committee did not have the same opinion. The movie tied with “Zoolander 2” for having the most nominations at the 37th Golden Raspberries.
