100 Worst Movies of All Time
100. Delta Farce (2007)
> Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
> Directed by: C.B. Harding
> Starring: Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, DJ Qualls
“Delta Farce” is a raunchy military comedy about three men mistaken for Army reservists who are sent to Iraq, but because of pilot error they end up in Mexico. Steven Hyden of the AV Club said, “Like ‘Paths Of Glory,’ ‘Apocalypse Now,’ and ‘Platoon,’ ‘Delta Farce’ is a difficult, harrowing work offering little relief or humor. Unlike those movies, though, ‘Delta Farce’ is supposed to be funny.” The film has a 5% Freshness rating among Rotten Tomatoes critics. It has a 3.6 rating out of 10 among IMDb users
99. A Haunted House 2 (2014)

Critics found neither “A Haunted House” nor its sequel particularly entertaining, with neither film garnering more than a 9% Freshness rating among critics on Rotten Tomatoes. The horror movie parody sequel — written and starring Marlon Wayans and starring Emmy Award winner Jaime Pressly — was dismissed by critics as “sloppy, vulgar, and manic.”
