Lights, Camera, Catastrophe! Welcome to the cinematic hall of shame, where we’re about to journey through Hollywood’s darkest depths. These films didn’t just miss the mark; they catapulted the sport into another dimension.

From cringe-worthy dialogue to plots that make less sense than a fish on a bicycle, these movies make you question your existence. So grab some popcorn (and possibly a strong drink) because we’re diving into the 20 worst movies ever made.

“Gigli” (2003)

"Gigli" (2003)
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in Gigli (2003)

This infamous disaster starred Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in a crime-comedy that was more criminal than comedic.

The not-so-romantic plot and the lack of chemistry between the leading actors made this movie a prime candidate for the Razzie Awards.

“Batman & Robin” (1997)

"Batman & Robin" (1997)
Batman & Robin (1997)

Neon Gotham, rubber suits with nipples, and an overacting Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze – need we say more? This movie managed to freeze the Batman franchise in its tracks.

“The Room” (2003)

"The Room" (2003)
Greg Sestero, Philip Haldiman, Tommy Wiseau, and Juliette Danielle in The Room (2003)

Dubbed the ‘Citizen Kane of Bad Movies,’ this film by Tommy Wiseau has achieved cult status for its terrible dialogue, over-dramatic acting, and inexplicably twisted plot.

“Showgirls” (1995)

"Showgirls" (1995)
Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls (1995)

This film, intended to be a seductive drama about an ambitious dancer in Las Vegas, ended up being a laughable attempt with awkward performances and an overabundance of nud!ty.

“Catwoman” (2004)

"Catwoman" (2004)
Halle Berry in Catwoman (2004)

Halle Berry’s portrayal of Catwoman was a disaster with a poor script, overuse of CGI, and a weak plot. It’s a movie that superhero fans would rather forget.

“Birdemic: Shock and Terror” (2010)

"Birdemic: Shock and Terror" (2010)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)

Allegedly a horror film, it’s more of a comedy thanks to its low-budget special effects, terrible acting, and a lack of real terror.

“The Happening” (2008)

"The Happening" (2008)
Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel in The Happening (2008)

M. Night Shyamalan’s eco-horror flick turned Mark Wahlberg and trees into unintentional comedic elements. The film, unfortunately, didn’t live up to the ‘happening’ part.

James J. Guild, a movie expert, mentions, “It has terrible, terrible, terrible acting. The kind that starts to bleed into performance art. It’s so bad you are never sure if the actors are in on it or not. Were they actively aware that the movie they were making was terrible?”

“Jack and Jill” (2011)

"Jack and Jill" (2011)
Adam Sandler in Jack and Jill (2011)

Adam Sandler plays Jack and his annoying twin sister, Jill, in this cringe-worthy comedy that lacks real humor.

“From Justin to Kelly” (2003)

"From Justin to Kelly" (2003)
Kelly Clarkson in From Justin to Kelly (2003)

A movie musical featuring American Idol’s first winner, Kelly Clarkson, and runner-up Justin Guarini. The film is infamous for its ridiculous plot and forgettable songs.

“Swept Away” (2002)

"Swept Away" (2002)
Madonna and Adriano Giannini in Swept Away (2002)

Directed by Guy Ritchie and starring his then-wife Madonna, this movie was derided for its lackluster script and lack of chemistry between its leads.

“Battlefield Earth” (2000)

"Battlefield Earth" (2000)
Promo Poster

A Scientology-inspired sci-fi epic starring John Travolta that was universally panned for its over-the-top acting, terrible special effects, and convoluted plot.

“Freddy Got Fingered” (2001)

"Freddy Got Fingered" (2001)
Tom Green in Freddy Got Fingered (2001)

Tom Green’s controversial comedy is famous for its gross-out humor and bizarre plot. It left audiences and critics alike confused and repulsed.

“Plan 9 from Outer Space” (1957)

"Plan 9 from Outer Space" (1957)
Bela Lugosi, John Breckinridge, Joanna Lee, Dudley Manlove, and Maila Nurmi in Plan 9 from Outer Space (1957)

Often cited as the worst film ever made, Ed Wood’s Alien Invasion movie is hilariously bad with its amateurish production and nonsensical plot.

“The Love Guru” (2008)

"The Love Guru" (2008)
The Love Guru (2008)

Mike Myers’s comedy about a quirky guru was a flop of epic proportions, with cringe-worthy jokes and an awkward plot.

“Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star” (2011)

"Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star" (2011)
Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)

This movie about an underdog trying to follow in his parent’s footsteps as a p*rn star is as bad as it sounds. Overly raunchy and lacking humor, this movie was a significant letdown.

“Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2” (2004)

"Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2" (2004)
Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004)

Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse after the first Baby Geniuses movie, along came this sequel. It’s a complete catastrophe with its absurd plot and annoying characters.

“Son of the Mask” (2005)

"Son of the Mask" (2005)
Alan Cumming, Bob Hoskins, Traylor Howard, Jamie Kennedy, Bear, and Liam Falconer in Son of the Mask (2005)

This sequel to the successful Jim Carrey vehicle “The Mask” was a disaster with its bad CGI, unfunny gags, and nonsensical storyline.

“Epic Movie” (2007)

"Epic Movie" (2007)
Faune Chambers Watkins, Kal Penn, Adam Campbell, and Jayma Mays in Epic Movie (2007)

The “epic” in the title is misleading. The movie is a string of parodies of popular films that fall flat, lacking humor or originality.

“Glitter” (2001)

"Glitter" (2001)
Mariah Carey in Glitter (2001)

Mariah Carey’s attempt at a serious film career bombed with this cliché-filled, melodramatic music industry film.

“Mac and Me” (1988)

"Mac and Me" (1988)
Jade Category in Mac and Me (1988)

This blatant E.T. rip-off, best known for its heavy product placement, is notable for its poor special effects and an overly sentimental plot.
