6. Fifty Shades of Black (2016)
> Genre: Comedy
> Director: Michael Tiddes
> Starring: Marlon Wayans, Kali Hawk, Fred Willard, Mike Epps
> Gross: $11.7 million

“Fifty Shades of Black” is director Michael Tiddes and funnyman Marlon Wayans’ spoof of the erotic romantic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Even though Wayans had success with send-ups of the horror genre, “Fifty Shades of Black” fell flat, with only 7% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes giving the movie a thumbs up. J.R. Jones of the Chicago Reader said, “The movie’s mean-spiritedness becomes even more painful than the dippiness of the source material.”

5. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)
> Genre: Action, Crime, Fantasy
> Director: Andrzej Bartkowiak
> Starring: Kristin Kreuk, Neal McDonough, Michael Clarke Duncan, Chris Klein
> Gross: $8.7 million

Based on the video game series of the same name, “Street Fighter” the film is too campy for its own good. Action film star Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in the movie, which has a 10% Freshness rating among Rotten Tomatoes critics. The movie was the last feature film appearance of Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor Raul Julia before he died of a stroke.

4. Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)
> Genre: Comedy
> Director: Tom Brady
> Starring: Nick Swardson, Don Johnson, Christina Ricci, Stephen Dorff
> Gross: $2.3 million

“Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star” — about a Midwestern man who goes to Hollywood to follow in his parents’ footsteps and become an adult film star — was unleashed 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.”

3. Meet the Spartans (2008)
> Genre: Animation, Comedy, Fantasy
> Director: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer
> Starring: Sean Maguire, Kevin Sorbo, Carmen Electra, Ken Davitian
> Gross: $38.2 million

“Meet the Spartans” is yet another spoof from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the filmmaking team behind “Epic Movie” (2007) and “Date Movie” (2006), among other send-ups. Goofing on flicks such as “300” (2006), the comedy with eye candy Kevin Sorbo and Carmen Electra is described by Rotten Tomatoes as a “tired, unfunny, offensive waste of time.” Just 2% of critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a positive score, and the movie has an IMDb user rating of 2.8 out of 10.

2. The Hottie & the Nottie (2008)
> Genre: Comedy, Romance
> Director: Tom Putnam
> Starring: Paris Hilton, Joel David Moore, Christine Lakin, Johann Urb
> Gross: $30000.0 million

The cringe-inducing title — and the fact that the film stars Paris Hilton — should be warning enough. Time Out called this “an execrable Z-grade eugenics parable,” while critic Richard Roeper said the film was “excruciatingly, painfully, horribly, terribly awful.” The film has a 6% Freshness rating among Rotten Tomatoes critics, and 31% of audiences liked the gross-out, sexist comedy.
