We’ve all had those moments where we sat through a two hour movie and said, "Why did they do that?  Did they read the script?"  Well, check out some of the worst film catastrophes from your favorite bloggers across on the web.

Star from Stay Tuned says: moviecuba

Cuba Gooding Jr. in Snow Dogs! I'm all for children’s movies, but that flick definitely makes the list for one of the worst movies of all time. He tried too hard to be funny and hasn't fully recovered yet. However, I liked him as Nickey Barnes in American Gangster (although it was a small part) so I'll keep hope alive for Cuba!


Runteldat from Entertainment Spotlight says:


Janet Jackson in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? -- in the scene that was supposed to be a tearjerker, Janet was about as convincing as her brother in a self-esteem competition. What happened to the kid actor with all the chops on Good Times ? Hopefully Mrs. Gordon still doesn't own an iron.


Gyant , Blogger/Social Critic at GyantScoop.com says:movieoprah

Everybody who knows me knows that I love me some Oprah . But I got to say that out of all her movies she's starred in—I could bust her in the head with a Gyant pillow for making Beloved . Oprah's trying to get her negro spiritual on and we're all looking at the screening thinking, "Why the hell is Oprah playing in the dirt ?"


The Young, Black & Fabulous says:  moviegabrielle Gabrielle Union in Perfect Holiday :  Not only are we supposed to believe for the 10th movie in a row that she's gorgeous and still can't find a man—but Morris Chestnut is her man for the umpteenth time and they still can't make that ish work?


Love B. Scott says:

moviemariah1 Lord knows I love myself some Mariah Carey but when it comes to her 2001 almost autobiographical film, Glitter , let's just be honest—Mimi's Glitter should have came no where near the box office but rather selected to make its debut on VH1!

Clay from What the Flick says:


Eddie Murphy used to have a knack for making the offensive laughable.  However, in 2007's Norbit , the legendary comedian brought a minstel show to the big screen.  The flick is an awful journey in a lifetime of movie -going experiences.  Some say this film is why he lost the Oscar for Dreamgirls .
