15. Alpha and Omega (2010)
> Starring: Hayden Panettiere, Christina Ricci, Justin Long, Dennis Hopper
> Domestic box office: $29.1 millions

This film follows two incompatible wolves who must stick together in order to help their pack. Critics called it “unambitious” and “poorly written,” critiquing its predictable plot, which seemed to borrow elements from a handful of other movies, while injecting nothing original.

14. Space Chimps (2008)
> Starring: Andy Samberg, Stanley Tucci, Jeff Daniels, Cheryl Hines
> Domestic box office: $38.4 millions

Nobody should expect to take a movie about chimpanzee astronauts too seriously, and some critics were able to get behind the constant monkey puns and hijinx in “Space Chimps.” Others were turned off by the banal jokes that seemed to be aimed at adults, but missed the mark.

13. The Wild (2006)
> Starring: Kiefer Sutherland, Jim Belushi, Eddie Izzard, Janeane Garofalo
> Domestic box office: $52.3 millions

Although critics praised the computer generated graphics — including impeccably detailed fur and realistic feathers — in this film about zoo animals who’ve escaped to Africa, many agreed that the characters and plot come off as a mere regurgitation of elements from previous animated features.

12. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011)
> Starring: Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Jason Lee
> Domestic box office: $153.8 millions

Take any well-known cast of characters, maroon them on a tropical island, and you’ve got yourself a sequel. This unnecessary third installment received worse reviews than the previous two Chipmunks movies, and has an approval rating of 12% on Rotten Tomatoes.

11. Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006)
> Starring: Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Billy Connolly, Bill Murray
> Domestic box office: $39.8 millions

Although it featured excellent vocal performances by Bill Murray and Tim Curry as two look-alike cats, “A Tail of Two Kitties” received generally poor reviews. The best thing to be said about this sequel is that its runtime is under an hour and a half.
