The 2000s are widely regarded as one of the great decades in the history of cinema. It’s the era that gave us No Country For Old Men, Zodiac, The Dark Knight, The Departed, The Prestige, Memento, Wet Hot American Summer, Talladega Nights, WALL-E, Memories of Murder, Punch-Drunk Love, and many more.
It also gave us these pieces of junk.
Of course, every decade produces bad movies. (For proof, look here or here.) And in a sense, a truly bad movie performs a public service. It puts things in perspective. Without the really terrible films, how would we know what a really great movie looks like? The stinkers remind us not to take the masterpieces for granted. So thank you, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This list wouldn’t be possible (or complete) without you.
Below, we have ranked our picks for the 25 worst movies of the 2000s. Most you’ve heard of. A few, if you’re very unlucky, you might have even seen. They run the gamut from superhero films to video game adaptations to romantic comedies to deranged vanity projects. But they all have something in common: They are bad. Very, very, very bad.
Here they are, the worst movies of the 2000s.
