Top Ten Most Disappointing Movies of 2005

This list compiles together the most disappointing movies released in 2005.

The Top Ten

1 Son of the Mask

Where to begin? The original comedy film starring Jim Carrey, in one of his breakthrough 1994 performances (along with 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' and 'Dumb and Dumber'), is regarded by many to be a modern classic. This piece of junk is regarded by everyone to be one of the biggest cinematic fails ever made. The terrible CGI, the terrible story, and Jamie Kennedy all contribute to the terribleness. - BKAllmighty

For some reason my best friend and my brother likes this movie and I don't.

It was gonna be bad to begin with. - Gamecubesarecool193

2 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Good movie but the original cuts the cake for me. - ParasN2000

How was this disappointing? It follows the book better than the original. I'm not saying I hate the original, I just like the remake a slight bit better.

3 Elektra

Marvel Comics movies, back in the mid-00's, were less-than-guaranteed to be great (or even good, for that matter). It seemed like every other movie was a failure (for every 'Spider-Man 2' there was a 'Blade: Trinity'). Sadly, both 2005 Marvel movies were horrible. You've already seen 'Fantastic Four' on the list, now we come to 'Elektra' (a spin-off/sequel to 2003's 'Daredevil'). Basically, in every major way it failed. Jennifer Garner, while looking great in the role, simply couldn't make the character interesting enough. Plus, the story and action sequences felt way too PG-13 for a film that should have been rated R. - BKAllmighty

4 Fantastic Four

Poor Fantastic Four. They've had four movies made about them and no one of them is really any good (the original 1994 B-movie wasn't even meant to be shown to the public and has never received a release of any kind). This film (produced by the same people who made the 1994 film), didn't turn out to be the big improvement everyone was hoping for. The story was stale, the acting was so-so (Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis might have been the only ones really trying), the humour was mostly too schlocky, and the visual effects jumped from impressive to terrible (mainly anytime Mr. Fantastic stretches) in seconds. - BKAllmighty

I thought this would be good.

Make this second place.

5 Chicken Little

Disney's first attempt at making fully-CGI animated movies (not counting Toy Story here - that was produced by Pixar) was also possibly it's biggest failure. Firstly, the animation is, by today's standards, very weak. But mainly, the story is dull, the characters are either equally dull or doubly annoying, and the humour is juvenile, at best. - BKAllmighty

6 Constantine

I have grown to appreciate this movie a bit over time, but there are still some major flaws to address here. For one thing, it's confusing. Really confusing. My first time watching it was mainly two hours of trying to catch up with the story. Secondly, it's Keanu Reeves. He doesn't exactly bring a lot of emotional depth to each movie he does so trying to relate to and stand behind him is an uphill battle for the duration of the movie. Thirdly, its story is pretty jumbled up. And that's a whole new conversation. - BKAllmighty

7 The Dukes of Hazzard

What's there to say about this movie besides that it was dumber than a pile of cow manure? There was no real story over the course of the entire film (its basically just an excuse for a man-child director to film driving sequences) and the jokes were deaf-end stupid. - BKAllmighty

8 The Ring Two

The original was a modern classic and established Hollywood's habit of remaking Japanese horror movies. This one, was a cash grab. The clich├ęs are ever-present, the writing is messy, the tone is noticeably less-frightening, and the edginess is completely used up. - BKAllmighty

9 Doom

This is a pre-success-as-an-actor Dwayne Johnson movie, so you shouldn't expect much already, but, man, is this movie a drab waste of time. In retrospect, the side-scrolling 8-bit video game is more fun than this. They really should have called the movie "DOOMED" or "DULL". - BKAllmighty

10 The Fog

The original, while not among John Carpenter's best movies, was a solid film. This, is a solid piece of crap. It's about as un-scary as you could imagine and the cast was clearly selected for their looks over their ability to actually act (sorry Tom Welling and Selma Blair, but this is some shoddy work). - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 House of Wax
12 Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous
13 Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
14 Dirty Love
15 The Honeymooners
16 Yours, Mine & Ours
17 Rumor Has It...
18 The Perfect Man
19 The Island
20 In The Mix
21 Bewitched
22 Herbie: Fully Loaded
23 Racing Stripes
24 War of the Worlds

The movie was great. Not disappointing.

25 The Exorcism of Emily Rose
26 Aeon Flux
27 Memoirs of a Geisha
28 Into the Blue
29 Alone in the Dark (2005)
30 Star Wars Episode III - The Revenge of the Sith
31 Saw II
