Have you ever walked into a theater, bought some snacks, expecting to watch a great a movie and then found the snack more interesting?! Well, I have felt this way quite a number of times, when I judged a movie by the publicity and it turned out to be a total disaster! As I said, not all movies that are made can make it to the top of the blockbuster list. However, some do make it to the list of the worst movies of all time. But what is important to make a note of, is the fact that, usually, movies are rated according to the revenue generated in theaters. However, there are some which may have not done so well, with regards to business, but have been appreciated by many. So, in the following list of worst movies ever, you may come across names which you may have seen and actually appreciated. Here goes..
Worthy Mentions of the Last Decade
Let's begin with the latest disasters. This past decade saw an unprecedented number of bad movies being made, and some of them are..
  • Big Momma's House 2 - This movie was released in 2006 and it promised to be a comedy, but it turned out to be unfunny and unimaginative. It is a sequel to Big Momma's House, and stars Martin Lawrence as the loud-mouthed, cross-dressing, undercover federal agent, who pretends to be "Big Momma", a nanny. The movie suffers from over-the-top and mindless dialogs, and does not manage to produce even a single chuckle.
  • I Know Who Killed Me - This Lindsay Lohan starrer was released in 2007, and has the honor of receiving negative reviews in all newspapers and film magazines. Film critics called it the worst movie of the decade, because of its sloppy direction, ponderous screenplay and a lack of a cohesive storyline. In the 28th Golden Raspberry Awards, it earned nine Razzie nominations, winning eight out of the nine nominations! In the 30th Golden Raspberry Awards, this movie was nominated for "Worst Picture of the Decade".
  • Glitter - Glitter, a musical, released in 2001 and it starred the pop diva Mariah Carey. Mariah's pop career almost fizzed out after the movie bombed at the box office. Critics declared it one of the worst movies ever. It received 5 nominations for the 2001 Golden Raspberry Awards, and Mariah Carey walked away with "Worst Actress Award".
  • Catwoman - This movie, starring Halle Berry (in a Lycra catsuit) seemed full of promise, but sank at the box office and failed to impress critics. It was based on the DC comic character, but alas, the superpowers of Catwoman failed to save the movie. It was declared as the worst superhero film to be ever made! It won 4 Razzies for Worst Movie, Worst Actress, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.
  • Gigli - Starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, this movie was much hyped and publicized because of the offscreen romance of the lead stars at the time. It won seven Razzies and was nominated for "Worst Picture of the Decade".
And now for an extensive list, for unsuspecting souls who may be tempted to pick any of the following movies..

Wow, I didn't know that there would be so many names coming up in the list. That took some time! Now that you have an extensive list, steer clear of these movies and save yourself the disappointment. But keep in mind what I said earlier, about some movies receiving good critical reviews but not the revenue. There is one movie in this list which I quite liked - Pearl Harbor. I'm sure you too, must have liked some movie in this list. To conclude, I believe that it depends on an individual's perception to decide whether a movie is worth watching or not, because the reason is simple, 'Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.' Cheers!
