When that movie you can’t wait to watch receives a barrage of positive reviews from aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, you probably release that relieved sigh you didn’t even know you were holding. But, as life is cruel, this is not always the way it is. In fact, it’s easier to see the opposite, especially with the number of releases played on streaming platforms without major processing.
With that in mind, CinePOP put together a list of 15 films that received a total of 0% approval on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s right, ZERO! For the count, works were selected that have more than 20 reviews registered on the portal, as well as the most relevant films in the Brazilian scenario. Check!
The sequel to “Saturday Night Fever” is nowhere near the same success as the original film. Released in 1983, the film picks up the story 5 years after the first story, and Tony decides to take up his biggest challenge: the Broadway scenes. Rotten Tomatoes brings together 25 reviews, and the consensus reads as follows:
“This sequence is surprisingly shameful and unnecessary, swapping the dramatic density of the first for dance sequences without the slightest inspiration.”
A companion of so much childhood with the Home Cinema and the Afternoon Session, “O Pestinha” is the story of Júnior, an evil boy who confuses the whole neighborhood and seems to have no solution. The critical consensus in RT states:
“Small and devoid of creativity, ‘O Pestinha’ is a particularly wicked comedy, filled with manic storylines and juvenile pranks.”
Highlander 2: The Resurrection (1991)
Although the first Highlander (1986) divided opinions, it is liked by many precisely because it is absurd, bombastic, and exaggerated. The sequel, which takes Connor on a mission to save Earth from destruction after the ozone layer was completely damaged, has died of critical outcry. The RT consensus is short and thick: “There should have been only one”.
“Despite the lush tropical landscape and the appealing protagonists, Return to the Blue Lagoon is as ridiculous as its predecessor, and it lacks the lustfulness and involuntary laughs that could make it a guilty pleasure.”
Rede Globo might even like to show “A Lagoa Azul” and its sequel, but the reviewer was not a fan of this unlikely story that mixes romance and adventure.
In this unusual sequence of movies with talking babies, the speaker is … the dog. Or rather, the dogs – voiced by Danny DeVito and Diane Keaton, who make up the cast alongside John Travolta and Kristie Alley. Consensus? “Look who’s talking now: don’t look.”
Kill Me With Pleasure (2002)
A woman (Heather Graham) faces deadly consequences after leaving her stable relationship with her boyfriend to pursue more “sensual” storylines with a mysterious celebrity, mountaineer Adam (Joseph Fiennes). Despite being the work of famous Chinese director Chen Kaige, who had commissioned “Goodbye, my concubine” and “Terra Amarela”, its reception was disastrous. “Chen Kaige’s respected first foray into an English film is an extremely erratic erotic thriller, with ridiculous twists and shameful dialogue.”
Roberto Benigni’s live-action version of the “puppet who wanted to be people” received a very disastrous reception, with the following consensus from critics: “Roberto Benigni made a big mistake with this adaptation of Pinocchio, and the result is a dull, poorly done, and scary vanity project.
Who doesn’t love movies with prodigious babies? Okay, a lot of people … In this sequence, a group of very smart, talking babies are at the center of an experiment, and they have to race against time to save babies around the world.
If you’re wondering how this premise could go wrong, the reviewer’s consensus responds, “A surprising lack of tact pervades Babies of Genius, a sequence that offers even more evidence that bad jokes aren’t funny even if they’re told by babies. “
With Eddie Murphy and Kerry Washington, “The Thousand Words” accompanies literary agent Jack McCall. He made a pact with a spiritual guru, and after that a tree was born in his garden. Every time he says a word, a leaf falls, and he will die when all the leaves have fallen to the ground. So he needs to measure the words if he wants to live.
Complex, isn’t it? Not exactly … “The dated jokes and the withdrawal of Eddie Murphy’s voice, his great comedic asset, doom this painful mess to failure since its inception.”
Adam Sandler’s first comedy for Netflix, “The Ridiculous Six” does not fall into critical taste. “As lazy and offensive as the cast and concept suggest, The Ridiculous 6 sets the standard couch movie for Adam Sandler fanatics, and something that should be avoided by movie buffs of all other persuasions.”
Starring Jim Carrey, the film is a murder investigation that ends up turning into clues found in a book about another very similar crime. The plot is based on a true story, but it played out quite tragically. “Obscure Crimes is a nasty thriller that fails to turn an engaging story and an engaged Jim Carrey into something that is minimally scary.”
Yes, this is the real doll action. In the story, teenager Max McGrath has an alien friend, Steel, and the two must combine their powers to become the… superhero… named… Max Steel. The critical consensus was by no means soft: “Lack of characterization or even satisfying action scenes, Max Steel is like trying to play with miniatures without having any trace of childish imagination.” “
Telling the story of Mafia boss John Gotti (Travolta) and his rise to the Gambino family in New York City, the film takes place over 3 decades and seeks to examine the protagonist’s tumultuous life. It was considered one of the worst films of the year it was released, and the reviewer unanimously recommends going far.
Starring Amber Heard, Jason Isaacs, and Cara Delevingne, he tells the story of a psychic who predicted her own murder and enters into a troubled relationship with three different men, one of whom she knows is her future murderer. It is based on the book of the same name by Martin Amis, which certainly pleased more than the adaptation. “London Fields indulges their beloved source material and an intriguing, electric cast, leaving audiences with a neo-noir project that appeals only to the curious.”
