This weekend, Adam Sandler’s comedy Jack and Jill, in which he cross-dresses to play his own sister, debuted to a zero per cent — later upped to three per cent — rating on the critic aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. Even Yogi Bear and The Smurfs scored higher.
Here are the few films that scored even worse — zero per cent and staying there.
Troll 2 (1990)
The cult classic, about a group of vegetarian monsters, is so bad, it was the subject of a documentary called Best Worst Movie — directed by one of the cast members. Funniest part: there are no trolls in Troll 2.
Remember Roberto Begnigni? The Life is Beautiful actor who won the Oscar and climbed over the chairs at the ceremony? He cast himself as Pinocchio in this live-action disaster. “What can one say about a balding 50-year-old actor playing an innocent boy carved from a log?” asked one critic.
Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004)
Talking babies battle bad guys with super powers and farts. It’s from the director of another critically-acclaimed hit: Porky’s.
Strange Wilderness (2008) and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)
One’s a satire of nature documentaries, featuring Bigfoot, and the other is a satire of porn, featuring a small penis.
Who executive produced these masterpieces? Adam Sandler.
