Twenty years after the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” helped launch the slasher genre, Kim Henkel, who produced and co-wrote the first version of the film, unleashed this reboot of the slaughterfest, noteworthy for its early-career appearance by Matthew McConaughey. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly called this version “luridly abysmal.” Critics gave the film a 14% Freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while only 18% of audiences liked it.

44. Dragonball Evolution (2009)
> Genre: Action, adventure, fantasy
> Directed by: James Wong
> Starring: Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Yun-Fat Chow

The live action flick “Dragonball Evolution” has plenty of aspects that may appeal to those who are already fans of the franchise, but the majority of viewers feel left out. Even fans, however, find the film lacking that special something that made the original books (and cartoons) so engaging.

43. Jack and Jill (2011)
> Genre: Comedy
> Directed by: Dennis Dugan
> Starring: Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes, Al Pacino

This Adam Sandler film in which he plays both titular characters was the first movie to win every single Razzies award the year it was nominated.

Critic Sean Burns of Philadelphia Weekly opined that “Jack and Jill” is “the worst Adam Sandler picture yet, which is saying something.”
