The Love Guru Leads the Razzies

The Razzies are not just the Anti-Oscars, but it is a celebration of the bad. It goes one step farther than just informing you of juse how bad some films were, but it relishes in it adding another layer of mockery to the already squirming celebrities who participated in the nominated productions.

For the most part I agree with the un-accolades these films are getting however I didn’t find Dungeon Seige to be that terrible. Wasn’t awesome, but still not really that bad. However it is no surprise that the Razzies are jumping at the chance to mock Mike Myers. If it was just another bad movie no one would really react, however, after so many years of success it is a might big step down for him with the poor showing with the Love Guru. And it was a freefall for the beloved Canadian comedian.

Any legitimately bad movies that you think they missed? How do you feel about the nominations?

    1. hey, if you say so. but i still have no interest in seeing it and will gladly remain in the dark with respect to this “underrated” performance. eddie murphy has sucked for a long time and has just become painfully unfunny

  1. I saw The Love Guru last night, now I understand why. Haven’t seen Disaster Movie and don’t feel like seein’ it, if you watch the trailer you can tell it’s horrible.

    Have seen scenes from Meet the Spartans and that was quite enough.

    I don’t think 88 Min should be there, it wasn’t great and all but there were even worse movies than that.

  2. I hope that they just listed all the movies the actor was in 08 because Ben Kingsley in The Wackness should’ve got some Supporting Actor love and the film itself is to describe it in a word I’m not used to saying “charming”. The actress category includes the worst working actress’ ever in Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson. A Razzie win should put you on suspension in the Actors Guild for a year.

  3. I actually think Uwe Boll doesn’t deserve to be on the worst director list.

    Postal was pretty damn good (especially considering the source material) and was pretty well shot.

    And I hear Tunnel Rats is well shot too.

    He’s actually improving as a director. And before the hate starts to pour on me for saying that, I absolutely LOATHE House of the Dead and couldn’t even finish watching Alone in the Dark.

    Those idiots that made Meet the Spartans however should win the award and then have their sorry asses shot for making absolute trash for no reason other than greed and greed alone.
