Worst Movies of 2016

This list compiles the biggest balls of dung released in theatres over the many months of 2016. May The Academy have mercy on their screenplays.

The Top Ten

1 Norm of the North Norm of the North

I've been noticing more and more that 99% of the time the really horrible animated movies are the ones that come from those no-name animation studios

I'm 10 years old, and even I felt super bored watching this movie! It was stupid and didn't make any sense. Oh, and did I mention it was BORING!

No character development, no commercial appeal, and no entertaining values. Yes, it is a kid's movie, but kids are smart enough to know how cheap and dull this movie is. - yaygiants16

Wow, are a bunch of 8 year olds commenting on this? You really couldn't think of anything better to use for a roast other than it was boring? Anyway, animation is bad, writing is horrendous, and it flopped because zootopia blew it out of the water.

Need I say more?

2 Gods of Egypt Gods of Egypt

This totally offends the real gods of Egypt

Sweet lord of Christ this was terrible, it was bad from the start and just got progressively worse, and the moment those dumb metallic beast thingys came onscreen I was like

3 Ghostbusters Ghostbusters

Just saw it, it's pretty awful. The entire time I was watching it I was like "is this supposed to be a legit ghostbusters movie or is this a ghostbusters spoof movie? " That's what it felt like, it felt like a spoof movie, like the writers of the scary movie franchise decided "hey, let's make our next spoof movie a ghostbusters movie" Even some of the scenes in this movie look like they're set up like a spoof movie, like when they get out of the car in their ghostbuster outfits, they accidentally say their big epic line at the same time, the epic buildup music stops and they're like "oh wait, were you gonna say it? " And then the mood gets ruined and they just walk in casually. And seriously? A ghost being set loose at a concert and someone taking a selfie with it? A cringeworthy race/gender joke? (Which by the way seemed like the only kind of jokes Leslie Jones made) And easily the worst part about this movie is Chris Hemsworth, his character annoyed the living hell outta me, at a ...more

Hollywood has officially run out of ideas at this point, where they have to take one of the most classic movies of the 80's and completely ruin it. I wouldn't have a problem with it if they just left the plot alone and at least tried to replicate the original graphics in a good way. Yet another disappointment. Here's the logic of this movie's producer: "I am going to disguise a public abomination as female empowerment, and if anyone doesn't agree with me, I will deem them sexist". Same logic as Hillary Clinton. Anyway, even the trailer is cringeworthy, the music is a poorly remixed version of the original Ghostbusters theme song. What in the world is this? The original theme song was already upbeat enough, they had to mess up that, too! Don't watch this movie, save your money. - yaygiants16

Seriously, can these movies just stop trying to pander to feminism already, what's next? An all female A-Team? An all female Star Wars? Not to mention the fact that the entire team is pretty much just a bunch of tired, washed up comedians that people are just sick of seeing at this point (I'm looking at you Melissa McCarthy) I didn't have a problem with the concept of rebooting ghostbusters but this just feels like it was made so the studio could be like "hey look at us, we changed to cast to women, aren't we such good people for giving this equality to women? "

I will never listen to Fall Out Boy ever again...

5 The 5th Wave The 5th Wave

I haven't seen the movie but the book was pretty good. Even if you've seen the movie, the book is worth reading. - TheAlbinoWolf

I watched this movie at my friend's sleepover. I didn't see all of it, but it was pretty boring. - Powerfulgirl10

6 The Divergent Series: Allegiant The Divergent Series: Allegiant

Was a disappointment considering how good the books are and how good the first and second movies were

Saw it in theatres, fell asleep for 90% of the movie. - Devilking190

7 Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Probably 1 of the most rushed movies I've ever seen

They could've done a way better job with the portrayal of Lex Luthor, and I wish Doomsday was NOT in this movie. I really wanted there to be a Superman Doomsday film in the future. - Mcgillacuddy

Really, 2nd place, it's not that great, but there are films that are way worse (Gods of Egypt or that Divergent film) - idontknow

The DC cinematic universe is crap, but this was especially bad. They tried to fit too much into a two-hour movie and I didn't really gain any emotional connection to any of the characters.

It's gonna suck I know it. Just look at the trailers. - Gamecubesarecool193

9 Ice Age: Collision Course Ice Age: Collision Course

Won't the Ice Age series just die already?

Why couldn't the Ice Age franchise stay as a trilogy? If the franchise stayed as a trilogy, the Ice Age movies would be one of the greatest animated film trilogies ever. But instead, Blue Skies decides to milk the cow even more and come out with disasters like this and Continental Drift. Please end this franchise! It's gone on too long, we're sick of seeing the animals adjust to environmental change, Scrat chasing the nut, etc. It's just not funny anymore! It's old and exhausting!

At this point you can just feel how tired of itself this franchise is

It's just like with the Land Before Time. And in here, they make a sequel every four years. We'll have the sixth movie in 2020. And aside from that, the whole thing is really bland, basically with Scrat destroying the world by chasing an acorn. Or getting into all sorts of mischief. Forget it. - redhawk766

Overrated and the characters are dull

This film was fantastic, How can it be on this list?

Oh and that Arrival hater if you dislike my comment I don't care. - VideoGamefan5

For God's sake people, not every alien movie needs to be a big budget sci-if war movie

I feel like this was added by some little kid who was pissed that this wasn't an action movie

15 The Angry Birds Movie The Angry Birds Movie

I know it's gonna suck, it's a game movie and it looks... AWFUL! It looks gross and immature, not what you want from a movie geared towards kids. - LarkwingFlight

A horrible movie filled with unlikable characters, a unoriginal story, and AWFUL and I mean AWFUL humor which is either disgusting humor or awful puns. (Examples: "Pluck my life." "Bird Control")

While this movie isn't great, it is a lot better than other video game movies we've been given in the past (like Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and Alone in The Dark), I don't think the movie is all that bad. I'd give it a 6/10

Seriously? An Angry Birds movie now? Everyone knows that people stopped giving a crap about Angry Birds after 2012

I haven't seen this movie, but the only thing I like about it is that they kill Justin Bieber. - Powerfulgirl10

I loved the first one but this was #@#%

The Only Good Thing Is That They Screw Justin Bieber - VideoGamefan5

Do you hate Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus (who has drastically had her horrific, unhealthy reputation go away these days) like I do, Videogamefan5? If so, then your comment would be "The Only Good Thing Is That They Screw Up The Three Celebrity Guests In This Movie"! >:D - Kieran Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil, realizing how professional these three annoying, jerkish celebrities are in comparison to Jacob Sartorius

19 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

Michael Bay Should Just Give Up Already.

Agree This movie made me hate TMNT - TheAwesomeFire

This movie was an improvement over the last one, which was all I really cared about.

20 Sausage Party Sausage Party

This literally looks like something for kids, but it's DEFINITELY not. It's a legit food orgy. - Powerfulgirl10

My immediate thoughts when I saw it were "I can't wait to see all the parents complaining because they took their kids to see this" (note to dumbass parents: just because something is animated it doesn't automatically mean it's for kids)

Am I funny yet?

It's a good film, but repeating the word "f" 150 times doesn't make it a Adult Animation film, just saying. - Mumbizz01

I'd rather watch Norm of The North that THIS crap! Norm of the North was horrible, but at least it had some humor in it
Meanwhile, Sausage Party is nothing but food puns, sex jokes, orgy, and cursing!
