29. From Justin to Kelly (2003)
> Genre: Comedy, musical, romance
> Directed by: Robert Iscove
> Starring: Kelly Clarkson, Justin Guarini, Katherine Bailess

If entertainment industry executives thought “From Justin to Kelly,” a musical rom-com starring American Idol contestants Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, was going to be movie magic, they were mistaken. Only 10% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes liked the film, which the Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus dismisses as “a notorious stinker.” Clarkson has since been vocal with the press in declaring her severe dislike of the movie.

28. Captain America (1990)
> Genre: Action, adventure, sci-fi
> Directed by: Albert Pyun
> Starring: Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty

While superhero movies are currently all the rage, they have not historically been so beloved. One of the biggest duds was the dull 1990 film “Captain America,” which starred Matt Salinger in the lead role and Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty in supporting roles. Scott Weinberg, writing for eFilmCritic.com, stated, “this is what superhero flicks looked like before someone got a clue.”

27. The Emoji Movie (2017)
> Genre: Animation, adventure, comedy
> Directed by: Tony Leondis
> Starring: T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris

The animated movie, starring the voices of T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, and Maya Rudolph, is little more than a commercial for an app. That was the takeaway from critic Ed Potton of the British newspaper the Times: “Not only does this film hate its very subject matter, it’s also the most hideous example of product placement in cinematic history.” His critic colleagues agreed, and “The Emoji Movie” has a 7% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

26. Feardotcom (2002)
> Genre: Crime, horror, thriller
> Directed by: William Malone
> Starring: Stephen Dorff, Natascha McElhone, Stephen Rea

British film magazine Empire called “Feardotcom” the “most pathetic horror of the decade.” Audiences must have agreed, as the film grossed less than $19 million worldwide against a reported budget of $40 million. The movie follows an NYPD detective, played by Stephen Dorff, as he works to solve a string of murders in which all of the victims accessed the same fearsome website.
