15. BloodRayne (2005)
> Genre: Action, adventure, fantasy
> Directed by: Uwe Boll
> Starring: Kristanna Loken, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Rodriguez

This video game adaptation by German filmmaker Uwe Boll was a box office bomb, grossing $2.4 million on a reported $25 million budget. Actor Michael Madsen, who stars in the vampire-themed video game adaptation, called it “an abomination” and “a horrifying and preposterous movie.”

14. Meet the Spartans (2008)
> Genre: Comedy
> Directed by: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer
> Starring: Sean Maguire, Kevin Sorbo, Carmen Electra

“Meet the Spartans” is yet another spoof movie from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer — the filmmaking team behind “Scary Movie” (2000), “Date Movie” (2006) — No. 46 on our list — and others. Goofing on flicks such as “300” (2006), the comedy is described by Rotten Tomatoes as a “tired, unfunny, offensive waste of time.”

13. Baby Geniuses (1999)
> Genre: Comedy, crime, family
> Directed by: Bob Clark
> Starring: Kathleen Turner, Christopher Lloyd, Kim Cattrall

“Baby Geniuses” tells the story of a woman — played by Kathleen Turner — who attempts to decode a special language used by all babies, whom she believes are born with Universal Knowledge. Roger Ebert found it exceptionally bad, saying that “a film as unpleasant as ‘Baby Geniuses’ achieves a kind of grandeur.” The movie earned director Bob Clark the award for worst director at the 1999 Stinkers Bad Movie Awards.

12. Gigli (2003)
> Genre: Comedy, crime, romance
> Directed by: Martin Brest
> Starring: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bartha

“Gigli” stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez — then in a romantic relationship — as two mobsters tasked with kidnapping and watching the brother of a district attorney. Despite their offscreen liaison, the two were criticized for lacking chemistry in the movie. The movie grossed just over $6 million at the domestic box office on a reported budget of $54 million.

11. Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)
> Genre: Comedy
> Directed by: Tom Brady
> Starring: Nick Swardson, Don Johnson, Christina Ricci

“Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star” was released by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions the same year as his similarly bad comedy “Jack and Jill” (No. 43 on this list). Not a single critic gave the movie a positive review among those reported on Rotten Tomatoes, with Time Out’s Matt Singer calling it “dire, soul-crushing stuff.”
