Top 10 Movies with the Worst Writing

These movies have just cringe worthy writing, makes me wonder why these people couldn't find better writers. Anyways onto the list. All movie genres are allowed for this list as long as the writing is just terrible.

The Top Ten

1 Dangerously Close
2 Super Mario Bros.

This "movie" adaption of the classic Super Mario Bros includes writing so bad, that I cringed more then once.

3 The Last Airbender

The writing isn't as bad as Dragon Ball Evolution.

4 Dragonball: Evolution

The writing is so bad it makes me wonder if the writers of this movie have ever seen Dragon Ball at all. Or they were too lazy to watch the show and just didn't care that the writing should've been rewritten. I mean having Goku's father die and letting Roshi (A guy he just met) live to me is just moronic. Thank god there wasn't a sequel to this titanic failure of a movie!

5 Funny People
6 Twilight
7 Battlefield Earth
8 Bio-Dome
9 Howard the Duck

Two words: Duck t*t s.

10 Home Alone 3

This was my childhood film though. Was it good as the first two? No. Was it terrible? Definitely not. - Not_A_Weeaboo

The writing doesn't even compare to the first two Home Alone movies.

The Contenders

11 Freddy Got Fingered
12 Scary Movie 5

Probably the worst writing I've ever encountered in a movie would be this. The jokes just like GB (2016) aren't funny at all. The dialogue is so cliché it's not even funny.

13 Seed of Chucky

Had to put a horror movie somewhere on this list. Anyway the writing in this movie is just pure pigs*** and gets even worse as it progresses.

14 Son of the Mask
15 Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

I don't like sand. It's coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere. - LarkwingFlight

I can't even begin on how terrible the writing is...

16 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

This movie's writing is a cluster. It has too many plot lines and doesn't know what to do with them. Too many characters and dialogue so cringe inducing I feel like facepalming.

17 Dumb And Dumber To

The terrible writing level is over 9000!

Didn't bother, as the first one stank up the place enough for two lifetimes.

18 Ghostbusters (2016)

This movie's writing consists of terrible jokes, corny dialogue and a ending that's so damn cheesy.

Hollyweird doesn't seem to get that some movies should never be remade. Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn? Give me a break. Steve Martin made a fool of himself tackling Clouseau (you never, ever remake Sellers). And the list goes on.

19 Suicide Squad

Awful Writing At Level 9000! - VideoGamefan5

20 Saving Christmas

Of course, I admit I have not seen the movie. Only read the reviews, & it was at the lowest on IMDB. - clusium

21 The Room
22 Foodfight
23 The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D
24 Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Documentaries don't count also why bring political into this list.

It got Razzie nominated

25 Billy Madison
26 That's My Boy

The writing in this movie is just wrong and creepy, also not funny at all.

27 Jack and Jill
28 Movie 43
29 Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
30 Star Wars Episode III - The Revenge of the Sith
31 Gigli
32 Disaster Movie

Whoever wrote this was stoned enough said.

33 The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!
34 The Garbage Pail Kids Movie

Meh I've ever heard worse dialogue, and yes the writing is a bit of a bore all I got to say.

35 Troll 2
36 North
37 Batman & Robin
38 Showgirls
39 The Master of Disguise
40 Kangaroo Jack
41 Kazaam
42 The Legend of the Titanic
43 Titanic: The Legend Goes On
