2007 Razzie Award Winners

The Razzies. The “awards” highlighting the WORST in movies just a day before the Oscars has become an event I look forward to almost as much as the Oscars themselves. Let’s face it… we all like to debate the question of “What was the worst movie of the year” as much as “What was the best movie of the year”. So here you are folks… the “winners” of the 2007 Razzies!

Basic Instinct 2

– Worst Picture

– Worst Actress (Sharon Stone)

– Worst Prequel or Sequel

– Worst screenplay

Little Man

– Worst actor (Marlon and Shawn Wayans)

– Worst screen couple (Shawn and Marlon Wayans or Kerry Washington)

– Worst remake or rip-off.

Lady In The Water

– Worst Director (M. Night Shyamalan)

– Worst Supporting Actor (M. Night Shyamalan)

Carmen Electra

– Worst Supporting Actress (Date Movie & Scary Movie 4)

RV

– Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment

It should be noted that despite 6 nominations, the Uwe Boll film “Bloodrayne” came up empty and didn’t take a single category. Oh well… 6 nominations is “honor” enough I guess.

The only “problem” I have with the list of winners is that I would have personally given the “Worst Picture” award to Lady in the Water. Without a doubt one of the worst films made in the last 2-3 years. Well… ON TO THE OSCARS!

  1. Actually I agree with the sarcasm about what MNS would say about his film, and I think it really is made for a more intelligent and/or willing audience. It might sound stupid but I defend it in the same manner. I think he is a diverse director/writer/producer and people stereotype him as only prooducing scary movies, when The Village was more of a serious take on society.
    I found Lady in the Water to be very philosophical and intellectual, and I really enjoyed it. I am shocked that movies like Epic Movie weren’t chosen and this one was

  2. I agree with LOU. My wife and I both really enjoyed the movie. And I think M. Night did just fine in the role he was playing. It was a nice in-joke that he was playing a world-changing author, and the only reason it was funny is that a big deal wasn’t made about it. It/he remained just another character throughout the movie. _I_ liked it. It was nowhere in the vicinity of the worst movie of the year, let alone the past 2-3 years. I like your stuff John, but you’re way off base on this one, IMHO.

  3. Has there ever been a better example of a cinematic lynching than with this movie? It seems like a lot of people had already made up their minds about Lady in the Water before it was even released. The vitriol expressed against this movie leaves me shaking my head in wonder.

    MNS played right in to the mob’s hands though. He could not have picked a better lob ball to be pounded away at.

    This film is a delicate soap bubble of a story. If one is willing to go along for the ride the journey is quite worth the effort. I really enjoyed this and put it up with my favourite MNS film, Unbreakable.

    Giamatti was excellent in this movie.

    Big thumbs up.

  4. Unfortunately Shyamalan will not learn from this. He is probably siting in stunned disbelief that he won those Razzies, followed by denial.

    I can almost hear him now: “They don’t understand the film. It’s too far ahead for them. Someday, far into the future, after years of evolution have improved human intelligence, they will watch my movie and understand it. Then they will hail me as the genius that I turly am!!”

    And his wife pats him on the back. “Yes, Night. That’s right,” she says, rolling her eyes.

  5. Hey SSS,

    Bridge to Terabithia had HORRIBLE EVIL MISLEADING marketing. Made everyone expect a fantasy adventure movie… which it isn’t…

    But that didn’t stop Bridge to Terabithia from being a good movie even though it wasn’t what people were expecting.

    Can’t blame marketing. The marketing people didn’t make the movie.
