Here Are the "Worst" Movies of 2016

Among all of Hollywood's Oscar contenders, laugh-out-loud comedies, and disarming horror movies, there are always a few movies that leave critics groaning. We might personally love a few of them (c'mon — you know you do, too), but it doesn't stop Rotten Tomatoes from doing its thing and revealing which flicks failed to crack 30 percent on the Tomatometer, the site's review aggregator. Take a look at which movies are 2016's "worst."

01
Bad Santa 2

Bad Santa 2

Although Willie Soke's (Billy Bob Thornton) greedy, alcohol-fueled Christmas antics were a riot the first time around, the sequel couldn't live up to the original.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

While Marvel's Avengers are killing it both in theaters and with critics, DC superheroes are having a rough go of it. One critic described the gritty, dark Batman v Superman as "a movie that beats you into submission and makes you wonder if the sun will ever come out again." Yikes.

Yoga Hosers

Kevin Smith's quirky zombie film was a miss with critics, most of whom decried how all over the place it is.

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

Netflix's action-comedy stars Kevin James as a meek author who writes a fictional novel about a hired killer, but it's accidentally published as a true story. From there he's kidnapped to lend his "expertise" to a new assassination scheme. You know what apparently should have been assassinated? The script.

Incarnate

Incarnate

Aaron Eckhart's battle against a demon in Incarnate is almost as fierce as the movie's battle against critics, who called it "a pointless bit of hackwork."

Shut In

Shut In

Shut In looked like Naomi Watts's scariest movie since her incredible performance in The Ring, but the only thing scary about it ended up being the truly dismal reviews.

Nine Lives
Everett Collection

Nine Lives

Unfortunately Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Garner's family film about a workaholic billionaire who gets trapped in the body of his cat was a major dud.

American Pastoral

American Pastoral

Although many noted Ewan McGregor's directing debut of the Philip Roth classic is well intentioned, they pointed out that it's "lame" and lacks nuance.

Keeping Up With the Joneses
Everett Collection

Keeping Up With the Joneses

With a "regular couple meets spy couple" premise and a cast full of incredible comedic talent, it seemed like Keeping Up With the Joneses was going to be a sure-fire winner, but it's weighed down with worn-out gags.

Mr. Church

Mr. Church

As much as we're all wishing for an Eddie Murphy comeback, Mr. Church is not it. His restrained performance is praised while the rest of the movie is accused of racist storylines and an improbable script.

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass

There's no denying that Tim Burton's sequel to Alice in Wonderland is visually impressive, but its underwhelming plot falls flat.

The Huntsman: Winter's War

The Huntsman: Winter's War

A stellar cast and stunning special effects weren't enough to save Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron's fantasy from bad ratings.

The Boss
Everett Collection

The Boss

We all know Kristen Bell and Melissa McCarthy are comedy forces to be reckoned with, but The Boss is "sketch comedy with none of the lines colored in."

Regression
Everett Collection

Regression

Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke are some of Hollywood's most likable actors, but even they couldn't save this thriller about a detective investigating the cast of a young girl who's accused her father of a heinous crime.

Criminal

Criminal

Kevin Costner and Ryan Reynolds team up in this generic action thriller that some referred to as "brain dead."

Gods of Egypt

Gods of Egypt

Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau leads the cast of this visually arresting but vapid mythological action film.

Ice Age: Collision Course

Ice Age: Collision Course

The first two Ice Age movies might be hilarious and original, but each additional entry to the franchise is more and more watered down.

Warcraft

Warcraft

Between the cumbersome fake teeth Paula Patton has to mumble through and the sluggish plot, it's clear Warcraft should have stayed a video game.

Dirty Grandpa

Dirty Grandpa

Zac Efron and Robert De Niro seem like a match made in movie heaven, but this raunchy comedy didn't have anyone laughing.

Ben Hur

Ben Hur

Choppy editing and poorly used CGI are the big downfalls of this remake starring Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell.

Careful What You Wish For

Careful What You Wish For

If the number of shirtless Nick Jonas scenes were the only thing a movie was rated on, Careful What You Wish For would be at the top of every critic's list.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

Sweet and harmless but lacking any real story, this sequel failed to make people fall in love the way its predecessor did.

Kill Your Friends

Kill Your Friends

This dark comedy stars Nicholas Hoult and James Corden as just two of many "cynical, backstabbing, self-aggrandizing, shallow, vicious and vile" characters that drag the film down.

The Boy

The Boy

The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan deserves better than this possessed-doll horror movie, right?

Zoolander 2

No matter how much we all love Derek and Hansel, nostalgia wasn't enough to keep this comedy afloat.

Daniel Brühl and Emma Watson take on the infamous Colonia Dignidad, an ex-Nazi cult, in this poorly received thriller.

The Fifth Wave

The Fifth Wave

Not every dystopian YA sci-fi film can be The Hunger Games, and due to its unimpressive special effects and a convoluted plot, The Fifth Wave drowned in a sea of bad reviews.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant

Allegiant was this franchise's last hope, but bad reviews and poor box office sales put an end to its run on the silver screen.

Not even Kevin Bacon could save this bizarre horror film about a malevolent supernatural force trying to destroy a family of four.

Fathers and Daughters

Fathers and Daughters

Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried's movie about the struggling relationship between a father and daughter might as well have been called "Daddy Issues: The Movie."

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

Plenty of fans stand by their love for this DC superhero outing, but critics were vicious. "To say that the movie loses the plot would not be strictly accurate," wrote The New Yorker's Anthony Lane. "For that would imply that there was a plot to lose."
