60. Look Who’s Talking Now (1993)
> Genre: Comedy, Family, Romance
> Directed by: Tom Ropelewski
> Starring: John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, David Gallagher

“Look Who’s Talking Now” is the third film in the Look Who’s Talking trilogy. The film differs from its preceding chapters in that it gives voices to the protagonist couple’s pet dogs. This development wasn’t enough to win over critics, not a single one of whom has been recorded by Rotten Tomatoes as giving the film a positive review.

59. Universal Soldier: The Return (1999)
> Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
> Directed by: Mic Rodgers
> Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bill Goldberg, Heidi Schanz

Action star Jean-Claude Van Damme reprises his role as cyber-warrior Luc Deveraux in this low-rated sequel to the 1992 original. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 5% rating for failures ranging from “its generic story to its second rate action and subpar performances.” This was still better than the original, released in 1992, which got a 25% rating from critics.

58. Piranha 3DD (2012)
> Genre: Comedy, Horror
> Directed by: John Gulager
> Starring: Danielle Panabaker, Ving Rhames, David Hasselhoff

“Piranha 3DD” increases the gore and self-parody of the earlier “Piranha 3D” to disappointing effect. The result is a horror-comedy that few find either scary or funny.

57. Street Fighter (1994)
> Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
> Directed by: Steven E. de Souza
> Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Raul Julia, Ming-Na Wen

Based on the video game series of the same name, “Street Fighter” the film is too campy for its own good. Sadly, the film was the last feature film appearance of accomplished actor Raul Julia before he died of a stroke.

56. Weekend at Bernie’s II (1993)
> Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
> Directed by: Robert Klane
> Starring: Andrew McCarthy, Jonathan Silverman, Terry Kiser

Bernie (who is dead, as anyone who saw the original “Weekend at Bernie’s” will remember) dances, hang-glides, and attracts the ladies in this belabored sequel, variously described by critics as “mindless and repetitive” and “relentlessly labored and pointless.”

55. In the Army Now (1994)
> Genre: Comedy, War
> Directed by: Daniel Petrie Jr.
> Starring: Pauly Shore, Lori Petty, Andy Dick

Pauly Shore was highly prolific during the 1990s, starring in popular movies like “Encino Man” and “Son in Law.” Not all of his material was of equal quality, however, as evidenced by the wartime comedy “In the Army Now.” The movie currently has a mere 6% fresh rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

54. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)
> Genre: Action, Adventure, Family
> Directed by: Sidney J. Furie
> Starring: Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder

Original “Superman” cast members Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder are present here, too, but according to consensus critic review on Rotten Tomatoes, “The Superman series bottoms out here,” and “the action is boring, the special effects look cheaper, and none of the actors appear interested in where the plot is going.”

53. Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003)
> Genre: Comedy
> Directed by: Troy Miller
> Starring: Derek Richardson, Eric Christian Olsen, Eugene Levy

The filmmakers behind “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” may have taken its title a little too seriously. Critics found the film – a prequel to 1994’s “Dumb and Dumber” – exceedingly inane, even for an intended sophomoric comedy.

52. The Room (2003)
> Genre: Drama
> Directed by: Tommy Wiseau
> Starring: Tommy Wiseau, Juliette Danielle, Greg Sestero

With a mere 26% Freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, “The Room” can undoubtedly be considered a bad movie. However, it does have its supporters. The drama, originally released in 2003, continues to have screenings across the country and has developed a cult following.

51. The Legend of Hercules (2014)
> Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
> Directed by: Renny Harlin
> Starring: Kellan Lutz, Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins

There are gods and gladiators aplenty in this “epic origin story,” but it’s still “Cheap-looking, poorly acted, and dull,” and works as neither drama or action movie, according to critics on Rotten Tomatoes – which accorded it a 3% Freshness score.
