WHAT IS THIS WIKI ABOUT?
Throughout the history of cinema, there have been movies that made you sigh, movies that made you cringe, movies that made you laugh at just how bad they are, and even movies that made you go "art is dead." This wiki 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.
725 article(s) 133,624 edits 3,224 files
The Adventures of Pluto Nash - A science fiction film that suffers from an overuse of robot-related sexual humor and weak progression of the plot which was despised by Alec Baldwin, who did not want to be credited
North - One of the most racist movies of all time that was heavily criticized by the late Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert
The Room - The most notable example of a film inciting fun and entertainment for how bad it is
Troll 2 - A sequel that had no real connection to the first movie, as it features goblins rather than trolls
Battlefield Earth - Another poorly-made, generic sci-fi film with too much Dutch camera angles and John Travolta's overacting that caused Franchise Pictures to shut its doors, all thanks to the failure of this movie
The Emoji Movie - An animated film about emojis with an overusage of product placements for phone apps and a very predictable and formulaic plot that is based on ideas that were already used many times in other movies
Unfriended - A generic slasher movie in which the antagonist is a wronged person returning from the grave to enact revenge and the protagonists are a group of people with dark secrets, with its only major original concept being the film being shown mostly on a laptop, and also suffers from characters who cannot go nearly one sentence without swearing for the sake of it
The Cat in the Hat (2003) - The film based on the well-known children book that added pointless adult jokes and caused Dr. Seuss' widow Audrey Geisel to pull the plug on any more live-action adaptations of her husband's work
Foodfight! - An animated film that became a mess after most of its assets were stolen nearly a decade before, containing visual effects of rather low-quality, extremely inappropriate scenes for a children's film and unclear internal rules
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
The Magic Riddle - An Australian animated film riddled with many nonsensical scenes, as well as several animation errors, inappropriate scenes for a children's film and annoying and idiotic characters
Plan 9 from Outer Space - The first movie to be considered "So bad, it's good..." for the hilariously bad setting, acting, and many mistakes and errors, such as an obvious Bela Lugosi stand-in, weird characters, and poor special effects
Cool Cat Saves the Kids - An "educational" film infamous for its low-budget quality that was patched from three short films, resulting in a mostly-incoherent story, and also suffers from a poor grasp of the source material by its own creator and an unlikable protagonist who seems like a bully (going against the supposed purpose of this film) as well as harmful messages for children
Hellboy (2019) - An atrocious reboot of the first Hellboy film that is filled with graphic violence far too extreme even for a film with an R-rating, a rather poor grasp of the source material and loads of unnecessary swearing
Norm of the North - A computer-animated film which constantly has to remind its audience of its main character's goal as if they are not smart enough and pander to said audience by shoehorning in pop songs and showing its main character twerking, and also features nonsensical motivations for the characters
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - The ninth and final installment in the series' Skywalker saga that is a textbook example of how not to end a once-beloved franchise
Barney's Great Adventure - A film based on Barney & Friends suffering from a lot of filler and a mediocre plot
Twilight - A vampire film about the relationship between a teenage girl and her abusive vampire partner that is full of wooden and lifeless acting and a severe lack of chemistry between the two lead characters
Manos: The Hands of Fate - A film that features obviously dubbed voices, a long and boring intro, and a pointless subplot
Music (2021) - A 2021 film directed by Sia that is notorious for its gross mishandling of autism
The Little Panda Fighter - A Brazilian "mock-buster" of Kung Fu Panda with an awkward English dub and low-quality computer animation
Instant Family - A family film that is not only filled with contrived "emotional" moments and unlikable characters but also fails to capture foster parenting in a realistic way
Fifty Shades of Grey - An erotic romance film with poor writing, lack of chemistry that comes off as abusive and sex scenes that only come off as rape and torture
Cars 2 - An animated sequel that proved Pixar was not immune from stinkers and John Lasseter was not "Mr. Perfect"
Ice Age: Collision Course - The fourth sequel to the original 2002 film that not only suffers from a near-lack of originality as well as an over-the-top animation style that feels too jarring for an Ice Age film but also butchers comic relief Scrat as a character, even upping his antics to such an absurd degree it loses its comedic edge
Ghostbusters (2016) - This controversial reboot film that was a perversion of the beloved franchise and was little more than feminist propaganda.
Star Trek: Into Darkness - The follow-up to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek that rehashes Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and suffers from questionable character changes and inconsistent antagonist motivations
Disaster Movie - A Seltzer and Friedberg-written movie that truly lives up to its title... in a bad way
Terminator: Dark Fate - The latest installment in the long-running Terminator series which became controversial for killing off the character John Connor at the start, which effectively undermines the plot of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
Mulan (2020) - A live-action remake of the 1998 traditionally-animated classic of the same name which has a questionable grasp of Chinese folklore, renders its titular character overpowered from the start and thus harder to relate to and also lacks specific story elements from the original, resulting in viewers "needing" to watch the original to understand what is going on

Cats - An adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name featuring creepy and uncanny designs for the feline characters, alongside uncanny computer-generated imagery
Leaving Neverland - The HBO documentary about "sexual abuse allegations" of the late Michael Jackson full of inaccuracies that lack any evidence whatsoever; the documentary defecated on his legacy and made nearly everyone hate him.
The Last Airbender - A live-action adaptation that had nothing but whitewashing, too much exposition and lack of emotion for the characters, and led to director M. Night Shyamalan's downfall that lasted the next few years
Cuties - A 2020 French movie that, in one of the biggest examples of hypocrisy, claims to have an anti-pedophilic message, when it actually fully participates in pedophilia by showing many scantily-clad minors throughout the film, and ruined the reputation of worldwide distributor Netflix
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - The sequel to Jurassic World that suffers from bland villains with cheap motivations, poor handling of the overall message of the movie, and a terrible and nonsensical ending
2012 - Another generic and forgettable disaster film that is based on an outdated hoax saying that the world would end on December 21, 2012, suffers from a lot of filler and a lack of logic, and is insulting to other nations to the point where it got banned in North Korea
The Garbage Pail Kids Movie - A film based on a series of children's trading cards that became one of the most unfunny and disgusting comedies of all time
Pokémon: The First Movie - An anime film based on the popular video game franchise that is infamous for the English-language dub produced by 4Kids Entertainment that removes or censors scenes and adds a rather hypocritical message about how "fighting and/or violence is wrong"

Foodfight! is a 2012 computer-animated adventure comedy film directed by Lawrence Kasanoff and produced by Threshold Entertainment. The film takes place in a supermarket which, after closing time, transforms into a city where all the citizens are personified well-known marketing icons.

The movie originally had a Christmas 2003 theatrical release; however, it was delayed, as the project had to start over with only what little remained, since hard drives containing unfinished assets from the film were stolen (in what was quoted as an act of "industrial espionage") and that no backups were available. It was released a decade later after being auctioned off and "finished" as quickly and cheaply as possible. Its state would lead it to become known as one of the worst animated movies of all time, and a serious contender for the title of outright worst.

RULES AND GUIDELINES

General

  1. When creating articles on this wiki, stick to films that are actually bad, regardless of whether they have a positive or negative reception from critics and audiences.
  2. As quality control begins to apply stronger than ever, check out the tutorial on how to create a page, before creating an article.
    • Also, do not suggest critics who like any of the movies with articles on the Awful Movies Wiki are being "bribed" unless there is any evidence.
  3. 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.
  4. There are two major headings required to use for each article, excluding those with the "Horrible Moments in Cinematic History" category: "Plot" and "Why It/He/She Sucks" ("Now", if they used to rock); the latter can be titled as the "Bad Qualities" section for any articles with the "Average films" category. The latter must contain valid and detailed reasons; do your best to avoid generic pointers such as "bad acting/animation/soundtrack/etc.," or other pointers like "this film spawned the X meme(s)."
    • "Redeeming Qualities" (or "Good Qualities") is optional; it can only be used if the film discussed in the article has positives.
    • Custom headings are forbidden due to the potential of users inserting coarse language on the headings, as well as being unnecessary. Coloring the titles of films are forbidden, as articles must be kept simple; not to mention they show up incorrectly on certain devices. If the title officially contains an ampersand instead of the word "and," it must be used.
  5. Do not create new categories; if you think a new category is needed, ask the moderators and they would make it for you if your suggestion proves to be useful. Creating excessive spam categories will possibly result in a ban.
  6. Do not create an article about unofficial web films (i.e. Go!Animate: The Movie) or even official films that have not been released yet; no exceptions.
  7. Reviews and quotes are optional; however, if you plan to insert any reviews or quotes made by critics or YouTubers, it is also okay to take reviews and quotes from other sources. However, plagiarism is not acceptable for anything else, including pasting in plot summaries from articles on, say, Wikipedia; if your article is suspected of plagiarism, it will be removed and you will be blocked for a day the first time you break this rule.
    • Videos from CinemaSins are banned from the Awful Movies Wiki due to being unreliable and full of nitpicks; repeatedly breaking this rule without warning will increase the duration of further blocks. On that topic, here is a list of rules regarding the uploading of videos from YouTube.
  8. Anything related to memes are allowed, but please put them in the "Trivia" section, if needed.
  9. Either rude or immature behavior towards others will not be tolerated; if you act rude or immature towards another user, expect a permanent ban.
    • Similarly, do not create any blog posts that are hit pieces about users you dislike.
  10. Do not create a page about trilogies, duologies, franchises, etc.; not only is making an article about a single film simpler, but each film in any specific series is different from another, even if they are part of the same set. Making an article about an entire, say, trilogy does not really make a lot of sense if you want to explain why each one of them sucks.
  11. "Not screened for critics," "This is a cash grab," "At least it is better than...", "No one wanted this film...", "This spawned the X meme(s)," and "Wasted the talents of..." reasons, as well as terms such "Let that sink in..." are not allowed due to not affecting the quality of the actual film.
  12. Do not close threads so soon without waiting for someone else to give their two cents.
  13. Please refrain from using profanity in the articles, aside from in quotes from YouTubers and critics; using profanity in the comment section of any article as well as threads, however, is allowed as long as it is not used against other users without a good reason to do so. Adding YouTube videos with profanity in the title is allowed, but will be controlled if necessary.
  14. Be as formal as possible whenever editing.
  15. Removing information or messing with the articles without giving a good reason is considered vandalism and can result in a permanent ban.
  16. Reasons for the removal of specific comments are them consisting of either malicious propaganda, harassment of others, or pornography; the comment would also be removed if it does not make any sense.
  17. If you plan on creating a sandbox, please do not use it outside of creating 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; using blog posts as sandboxes to get around this rule is not allowed.
    • Categories are forbidden from being used in sandboxes.
  18. Downvoting comments is no longer allowed, due to the heavy amount of opinion disrespecting and trollism, and the comment code has been changed to upvotes only. Anyone who downvotes a comment after changing the code back to normal will be blocked without warning.
  19. Do not blame politics for specific bad films being nominated for awards over good ones; this would cause massive amounts of drama.
  20. On that topic, reliable sources must be cited for specific facts, no exceptions; this means you cannot just insert in a fact about, say, something that has happened during the production of any specific movie without any evidence whatsoever.
  21. No harmful and insulting content directed to the wikis and to their users posted off-site will be tolerated; in addition, no excuses like "it's a joke", "it is not to be taken seriously" will be valid. Regarding how old the offending content is, it will be up to the administration staff to decide but know that generally the harmfulness of verifiable malicious content doesn't expire after a certain period of time.
  22. Breaking any of the aforementioned rules will result in one warning; if you persevere you will face a ban for a temporary period of time. The duration of the ban will depend on the gravity of your misbehavior unless already specified in the rule.
  23. Do not add as a redeeming quality "if X had better planning, it would be on Greatest Movies Wiki", because it is generic and doesn't add to the article.
  24. Do not add any categories related to movies, celebrities, companies, etc. to a blog, as that will only clog up the wiki. Anyone who does this will recieve a warning or a block.

Admins

  1. If you're an admin, it is you who must make the users respect your decisions and the rules, not the other way around. Please keep your cool without fearing backlash.
  2. Do not delete comments, blogs, or talk pages that contain criticisms of the wikis, as it will make us look like we couldn't handle any slight of criticism.
FORBIDDEN PAGES
  • Saló, or the 120 Days of Sodom: Way too disgusting.
  • Any movie on Greatest Movies Wiki: Self-explanatory.
  • Any movie that hasn't came out yet: We can't judge how the movie is until it comes out.
