30. Daddy Day Camp (2007)
> Directed by: Fred Savage
> Starring: Cuba Gooding Jr., Lochlyn Munro, Richard Gant
> Rotten Tomatoes critics rating: 2.3 out of 10

Only 1% of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave “Daddy Day Camp” — the sequel to 2003’s “Daddy Day Care” — a positive review. Cuba Gooding Jr. replaced Eddie Murphy, who starred in the original film, but he delivers a lazy and unfunny performance. Critic Richard Roeper summed the film up as “just horrible.”

29. Look Who’s Talking Now (1993)
> Directed by: Tom Ropelewski
> Starring: John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, David Gallagher
> Rotten Tomatoes critics rating: 2.5 out of 10

Not one of the 25 critic reviews on Rotten Tomatoes for “Look Who’s Talking Now” are positive, with the average rating being 2.5 out of 10. The third and final movie in the Look Who’s Talking series adds talking dogs to the mix, though the gimmick is not enough to save what critic Rita Kempley writing for the Washington Post called “a crude and mawkish film.”

28. Basic Instinct 2 (2006)
> Directed by: Michael Caton-Jones
> Starring: Sharon Stone, David Morrissey, David Thewlis
> Rotten Tomatoes critics rating: 3.0 out of 10

Despite boasting star power from the likes of Sharon Stone and Charlotte Rampling, this sequel to director Paul Verhoeven’s 1992 Hitchcockian thriller failed to win over many critics or moviegoers, impressing only 7% of the former and 26% of the latter. Critics described it as silly, flat, and lackluster.

27. Species II (1998)
> Directed by: Peter Medak
> Starring: Natasha Henstridge, Michael Madsen, Marg Helgenberger
> Rotten Tomatoes critics rating: 3.1 out of 10

The 1995 sci-fi horror flick “Species” received middling reviews upon its release. Critics were less kind to its sequel, released three years later. Only 9% liked the movie, which is described by the Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus as “clumsily exploitative and sloppily assembled.” Despite this, two more Species movies were produced.

> Rotten Tomatoes critics rating: 3.1 out of 10

Only 19% of critics gave the thumbs up to the slasher flick “Urban Legend” (1998).
