Roger Ebert’s Most Hated Movies- Here’s A List Of Movies He Gave The Thumbs Down To
Breaking News: Roger Ebert has passed away. We have that story if you Click Here. Roger Ebert had a long career rating some of Hollywood’s top movies. There was a lot of movies that he rated that he also hated. What movies did Roger Ebert hate? We have that list of Roger Ebert’s Most Hated Movies.
Personally I loved Joe Dirt. What other classic can you watch with David Spade and Christopher Walken? Here’s what Ebert had to say about it:
We professional movie critics count it a banner week when only one movie involves eating, falling into or being covered by excrement (or a cameo appearance by Carson Daly). We are not prudes. We are prepared to laugh. But what these movies, including “Joe Dirt,” often do not understand is that the act of being buried in crap is not in and of itself funny.”
The Hot Chick
I have to agree, anything with Rob Schneider as the lead is terrible. The saving grace of this train wreck was Rachel McAdams and Tom Brady. Here’s what Ebert had to say:
The movie resolutely avoids all the comic possibilities of its situation, and becomes one more dumb high school comedy about sex gags and prom dates…. Through superhuman effort of the will, I did not walk out of “The Hot Chick,” but reader, I confess I could not sit through the credits. The MPAA rates this PG-13. It is too vulgar for anyone under 13, and too dumb for anyone over 13.”
Seriously? He didn’t like a movie where babies talk the whole time? I loved it! It’s a classic! It’s a whole movie with the E Trade baby!
This is an old idea, beautifully expressed by Wordsworth, who said, “Heaven lies about us in our infancy.” If I could quote the whole poem instead of completing this review, believe me, we’d all we happier. But I press on.”
I remember the first time we wanted to watch this at our grandparents. My Grandpa Barretta thought it was porn and said no.
The Spice Girls are easier to tell apart than the Mutant Ninja Turtles, but that is small consolation: What can you say about five women whose principal distinguishing characteristic is that they have different names? They occupy “Spice World” as if they were watching it: They’re so detached they can’t even successfully lip-synch their own songs.”
How in God’s name could you not like this movie? It was Chris Farley in his prime!
“Tommy Boy” is one of those movies that plays like an explosion down at the screenplay factory. You can almost picture a bewildered office boy, his face smudged with soot, wandering through the ruins and rescuing pages at random. Too bad they didn’t mail them to the insurance company instead of filming them.”
