The Adventures of Pluto Nash - A generic sci-fi film with sexual humor and weak plot progression that was despised by Alec Baldwin to the point where he wanted to be uncredited
North - One of the most racist movies of all time, so bad that even the late, great Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert "hated, hated, hated, hated, hated this movie"
The Room - The most notable example of a film inciting fun and entertainment for how bad it is, with lines like "YOU'RE TEARING ME APART LISA!", tons of plot holes, laughable acting, etc.
Troll 2 - A sequel that had no real connection to the first movie, as it features goblins rather than trolls

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - The second installment in the DC Extended Universe that is riddled with multiple plot threads that were left unresolved and were supposed to be filled in for future installments but never were
Throughout film history, there have been movies that made you sigh, movies that made you cringe and even movies that made you go "art is dead." In addition, there have been movies that made you laugh at just how bad they are. This wiki, founded in 2015 by Official-PSASD (formerly Cpend7) on FANDOM and moving to Miraheze in September 2018, was made to let movie aficionados know about some of the worst movies ever made and even some of the worst moments in film history.

Rock: It's Your Decision - a Christian anti-rock propaganda film with a despicable and hypocritical "hero"
Chicken Little - Disney's attempt at the "Fractured Fairy Tale" genre that was far too mean spirited towards its own protagonist, despite being the company's first all-CGI film with no involvement from Pixar
Birdemic: Shock and Terror - Laughably poorly-rendered CGI of the birds will gave us a massive shock and terror of how so bad it is

Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa - One of the worst Christmas TV specials of all time that featured horrible animation, an unoriginal storyline you've probably seen millions of times by now, and a complete waste of talents like Mark Hamill, Nancy Cartwright, and Walter Jones
The Legend of the Titanic - An animated film based on the Titanic sinking that is pretty much disrespectful to the victims due to its claims that "nobody died"

Cool Cat Saves the Kids - A film directed by a guy who cannot take any criticism, was patched from three short videos, and featured a myriad of problems, right down to starring a guy in a fursuit

The Little Panda Fighter - A knock-off of Kung Fu Panda with an awkward English dub and low-quality computer-animation.
Showgirls - A film stuffed with fornicating that killed not only the careers of Elizabeth Berkeley, Paul Verhoeven and Joe Eszterhas, but two of the film studios that produced it
Instant Family - A family film that does not have any plot whatsoever and is just a bunch of random events thrown in together for the entire movie, is filled with forced "emotional" moments and unlikable characters, and fails to capture foster parenting in a realistic way

Jack and Jill - A film from the infamous Happy Madison Productions that would go on to sweep the 2012 Golden Raspberry Awards
Disaster Movie - A Seltzer and Friedberg-written movie that truly lives up to its title... in a bad way, that went on to become the lowest-rated film on IMDb

About Featured Articles | Nominate an Article

  1. When editing pages on this wiki, stick to movies that are actually bad, regardless if they have a positive or negative reception from critics and audiences.
  2. Web reviewers will be considered if they meet the requirements of the wiki. For more detailed rules about accepted web reviewers, read the specific article here.
  3. There are two major headings to use for each wiki page: The Plot and Why It/He/She Sucks (Now, if they used to rock). However, it could be as Bad Qualites section for any movies that are in the "Average Films" category. The latter must contain valid and detailed reasons; do your best to avoid generic stuff like "bad acting/animation/soundtrack/etc", or other pointers like "this spawned memes". Custom headings aren’t allowed due to being completely unnecessary and the potential of users inserting coarse language on the headings. Coloring names aren’t allowed, as pages must be kept simple. Plus, they show up wrong on certain devices. If the title officially contains an ampersand instead of the word "and", it must be used.
  4. Do not create new categories. If you think a new category is needed ask the admins and they'll make it for you if your suggestion proves to be useful. Immature behavior, such as creating excessive or spam categories, will result in possible blocks.
  5. Do not create a page about web films or movies that haven't been released yet. No exceptions.
  6. Reviews are optional. Though, if you plan to put in the reviews made by critics, it is also okay to take reviews from other sources. However, plagiarism is not acceptable for anything else. If your article is suspected of being plagiarized, it will get deleted and you will be blocked for one day the first time you break this rule. Repeatedly breaking this rule without warning will increase the duration of further blocks.
  7. We allow memes, but please put them in the “Trivia” section if needed.
  8. Rude behavior towards other users will not be accepted. If you are rude towards another user, expect a permanent ban.
  9. Do not create a page about trilogies/duologies/etc.; not only making a page about a single movie is simpler but every movie is different from another even if they are part of the same set. Making a page about a whole trilogy doesn't make a lot of sense if you want to say why each one of them sucks.
  10. "Not screened for critics", "It's a cash grab", "At least it's better than...", and "Wasted the talents of..." reasons, as well as terms like "Let that sink in" are not allowed due to being overused.
  11. Please refrain from swearing in the articles. Swearing in the comment section and discussions, however, is allowed as long as it's not used to offend other users. Adding YouTube videos that have swearing in the title is allowed, but will be controlled.
  12. Be as formal as possible when editing.
  13. Removing information or messing with the articles without giving a good reason is considered vandalism and can result in a permanent ban.
  14. Reasons for deleted comments are as follows: malicious propaganda, harassing others, pornography or if the comment makes no sense.
  15. NSFW content outside of movies with NSFW content is forbidden in this wiki.
  16. If you plan on making a sandbox, please do not use it outside of making approved pages or proposed edits to protected pages. If you wish to make unofficial pages, it is recommended to use a blog post for that. Categories are not allowed on sandboxes. Using blog posts as sandboxes to get around this rule is not allowed.
  17. Do not add any blog posts that are hit pieces about users you don't like.
  18. Do not insert any points among the lines of "no one wanted this film" in the "Why It Sucks" section.
  19. Breaking any of the aforementioned rules will result in one warning. If you persevere you will be blocked for a period of time. The duration of the block will depend on the gravity of your misbehavior unless already specified in the rule.
Unfortunately, grouping results by page is not available on mobile. If you would like to use the group by page feature please visit the desktop site.
