These 11 movies have the potential to be huge hits. However, the Reddit community has overwhelmingly condemned them for their obvious flaws. These films were laden with lousy acting, shoddy direction, or weak scripting. Some of these movies became blockbusters, surprisingly. It goes to show that commercial success doesn’t always translate into artistic merit. It also may make a poor case for audience appeal.

The Emoji Movie
Although the Emoji movie made millions, Reddit users still perceive it as terrible. One commentator mentions, “Even if the kids tolerate it, they should not be allowed to watch it.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
One Reddit user who finds The Star Wars: The Last Jedi terrible explains why, “The dialogue was atrocious, the characters were awful, the plot contrivances were frequent and annoying, and the movie as a whole was horrible.”
The Last Airbender
“I remember it takes like 4 people to earth bend a single rock…..and it floats in the air so slowly. The dude had all the time in the world to dodge it”
The Devil Inside
A commentator recalls how it felt watching The Devil Inside at a packed theatre, “It’s the only time I’ve ever seen an entire audience groan collectively when the credits rolled.”
Alone in the Dark
Imagine watching “a guy who’s just been killed starts to stand up just before the scene cuts away”! What’s worse than this?
Mrs. Brown’s Boys D’Movie
Some users “love watching Mrs. Brown’s Boys” sitcom but are not so moved by the 2014 comedy film. One post reads, “I was totally bored with the movie even back when I actually enjoyed the TV show. I hate the TV show now, so there’s no hope whatsoever with the movie.”
“Who came up with the idea for an evil skin care product in a superhero movie?” wonders one Reddit user. Or about that basketball scene, “Why would these kids suddenly demand two strangers on a date play a game of pickup?” wonders another.
Another terrible movie ever produced is Cats (2019). “I saw Cats and soon thereafter a global pandemic. I don’t think this is a coincidence,” writes a user to signify how bad the movie is. “The singing and dancing are legitimately great. It’s just the concept is and always has been insane,” notes another commentator.
This post-apocalyptic science fiction movie plot leaves room for questions. For instance, consider the part where “there’s an earth with exactly the same people as ours, but (the characters wonder) whether those people’s lives have also diverged.” Or “This society has perfected interplanetary travel, but they don’t have projectile weapons?” Or the part where “he (Kitai) outruns a predator animal native to the planet.”
Often quoted as one of the worst movies ever, The Room was bound to be on this list. One user said, “It’s so bad that it turned out a great comedy but technically it’s still an awful movie.”
Meet the Spartans
One user said, “Meet the Spartans is one of the only movies that I ever rented that I just shut off halfway through.” It was a 2008 American parody film directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Known for its slapstick humor and pop culture references, the movie is a comedic take on the epic film “300”. It follows the story of Leonidas, played by Sean Maguire, as he leads a ragtag group of 13 Spartan warriors against the Persian army. Despite its box office success, “Meet the Spartans” was widely panned by critics for its lowbrow humor, thin plot, and over-reliance on dated pop culture gags. However, for fans of spoof movies and outrageous comedy, it has its own unique charm.
