Top Ten Most Unexpectedly Bad Movies of 2016

2016 threw us a lot of curve balls. While it ended up being a record year at the global box office, there were an unusually-high number of failures that made the summer movie season feel like a flop, because of both poor returns and poor reviews. I've already made a list about the unexpected financial failures of 2016, so here's a list compiling the most unexpected cinematic turkeys of 2016.

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Free State of Jones
42 Finding Dory

I liked this. Dory developed more as a character (and she was SO CUTE as a baby! ) and we even also got some decent development for Marlin. I also liked the new characters like Destiny, Bailey and the octopus (forgot his name). - SailorSedna

First installment ALWAYS wins, and this is no exception. Finding Nemo was much better than this hunk of junk.

What about Toy Story 2? That one wasn't just as great as the first, it actually was even better. - SailorSedna

This isn't bad, it's awesome - VideoGamefan5

43 The Boss

This movie was hilarious. At least for me - 906389

44 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
45 Max Steel

Great ending and good comedy but the movie was otherwise pretty slow and didn't fill the Max Steel movie - MarvelExpertJK

46 Sausage Party
47 La La Land
48 The Legend of Tarzan

I wanted this film to succeed so badly. Tarzan rocks and he deserves a decent, modern live-action movie to his name. Why even make a movie about him if you're just going to bore us to death with a slow-as-molasses pace and an unoriginal plot? Really, guys. Now, it's going to take ages before anyone else tries to take another stab at it (probably). - BKAllmighty

49 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Well, I certainly don't think it deserves a spot here. Overall, I thought the movie was great, although the plot was slow to get moving and sometimes confusing. The ending (which I won't spoil) was slightly disappointing as well. So in other words, how dare you. - LeiaSkywalker

I actually enjoyed this WAY more than the others posted on this site

I loved this film. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Hell no. This was awesome! - TwilightKitsune

50 My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
51 Money Monster
52 Ben-Hur
53 The Accountant
54 The Girl on the Train
55 Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
56 Deadpool

WHO PUT THIS THERE?!?!?! Deadpool is the best R Rated hilarious Marvel movie of 2016, who says that this movie is horrible? I blame the person who dislike Deadpool

57 Doctor Strange
58 Fifty Shades of Black

Lemme guess, a knock-off of the horrendous Fifty Shades of Gray? - SailorSedna

We Knew This Would Suck - VideoGamefan5

59 The Darkness
60 Nine Lives
