Worst Movies to Stream on Hulu This Month

When Hulu was launched in 2007, it was primarily a repository for TV shows broadcast by its owners, NBC Universal and News Corporation. In 2009, however, Disney became the primary stakeholder, and today the platform boasts a huge library of TV shows from both parent companies (including ABC, NBC, and FX), as well as original programming – including “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Only Murders in the Building” – and films both original and otherwise. Unfortunately, some of those films are truly terrible, up there with the worst films of all time.

Few things are more disappointing than settling in for an evening at home with a loved one and a bowl of popcorn, scrolling through your streaming service of choice until you find what looks like a good movie, pressing play, and slowly realizing that you’ve made a terrible choice. Avoid that unfortunate mistake by definitely not watching any of the movies, currently streaming on Hulu, that we’ve ranked as the worst options. (Instead, may we suggest one of these great movies we bet you’ve never seen.)

To determine the worst movies to stream on Hulu Plus this May, 24/7 Tempo developed an index using average ratings on IMDb, an online movie database owned by Amazon, and a combination of audience scores and Tomatometer scores on Rotten Tomatoes, an online movie and TV review aggregator, as of April 2022, weighting all ratings equally. We considered only movies with at least 5,000 audience votes on either IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes. Documentaries were not considered. Data on streaming availability, current as of this month, comes from the streaming guide Reelgood.

From “Astro Boy” to “The Siege” to “Date Movie,” the movies on this list are all generally regarded to not be very good at all. The choice is yours as to whether you want to take the risk, obviously, but we wouldn’t advise it.
