The movies presented in this list represent the most underfunded, overfunded, disgusting, and/or most uninspired pieces of cinematic trash released in theatres at some point in 2017.

The Top Ten

The Emoji Movie The Emoji Movie Product Image

This movie is just for money and nothing else. However, that isn't what angers me. What angers me is that THEY CHOSE THIS OVER THE ANIMATED POPEYE MOVIE! I WAS ANTICIPATING THAT MOVIE EVER SINCE I FOUND THE TRAILER! IT HAD THE CHARACTERS, VOICE ACTING(Or at least similar), DESIGN, COMEDY, AND EVERYTHING! I understand that they lost the director, But they could of at least tried! If they didn't throw in any product placements, used the cartoon's elements, and gave the fans what they want, I bet this could be one of the best animated movies of the year, and definitely one of the best adaptations to an old cartoon. You don't get many of those. I personally think the only good recent adaptations are Peabody and Sherman and The Peanuts Movie. Peabody and Sherman was educational and I actually learned from it and Peanuts movie was funny and had a bright colorful art style and kept the characters and appealed to the fans. Popeye was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. I wasn't born ...more

Agreed! They should have made the Popeye movie instead!

Annoying, with stupid jokes.

Whoever put this movie on Number 1 is the best! I hate this movie so much. The designs are awful and the characters were not as good as I expected them to be when they announced it.

The main thing that kind of bothers me is that there is a character named... Poop Daddy! I'll get back to that in a minute or two, but for now... Let's just focus on the animation and how Sony Pictures did a terrible job at making this movie.

To start this off, Sony made the characters look really horrible... not to mention "cringe-worthy". And the animation looks very out of place. Basically, the plot involves Gene (who is a yellow emoji with arms and legs) who has more than one emoji expression. He goes on this adventure (Or as Sony calls it... an "App-venture") to become normal like the other emojis. He teams up with Hi-5 (who is literally a hand with feet) and Jailbreak who is a code-breaker emoji (I found out she was actually a princess later on) Anyways, the character that really creeps ...more

How to make (The emoji movie)

1: Animate the film using earwax and toe jam.
2: Don't even write a script and have the voice actors say whatever comes to mind while the characters randomly move their mouths.
3: Make every character look like something from your worst nightmare.
4: Have each person be either annoying or unlikable so the audience hates it more.
5: Motion control is great for CGI films, how about Xbox Kinect for the arm movement.
6: Speaking of movement, do it a lot, even if it means waving your arms in the air every time you speak or spinning around for no reason.
7: Show that you aren't scared to pass the boundaries and add sexual innuendos to every scene.
8: Barricade your house, stock on food and water and try to prepare your for a lot of hate mail and a few death threats
Viola! You've done a terrible job. In fact, it sounds like an angry mob is coming to your doorsteps right now. I'd run if I were you and get the hell out of this ...more

The only Sony movie I'm looking forward to is Spiderman: Homecoming which also a Disney owned movie. But let's see what Sony has in stores besides this piece of garbage that our Generation is probably going to get bored of real quick! Ghostbusters was Unnecessary! If Selena Gomez as a vampire or those Cringe-inducing Smurfs movies weren't painful enough! Baywatch (despite the fact that the Rock is in it.) and Rough Night (despite the fact that my Baby Girl Scarlett is in it.) aren't showing me better! I swear, Popeye looks way better than this garbage. I honestly rather watch Tumblr Ghostbusters again than this outdated, useless movie! Not even Warner Bros is trying with their movies! I am no longer worried for any of their DC Comics movies anymore. Suicide Squad was a pandering mess! Kong: Skull Island was a Lackluster Jurassic Park knockoff! except for a few Exceptions like Lego. But that's about it! 20th century fox is a mixed bag for me. As well as the X-men Franchise! Alien: ...more

Fifty Shades Darker Fifty Shades Darker Product Image

I enjoy leaving the theater with the taste of popcorn and candy, not with the taste of vomit and sadness.

All of these are boring. Almost as boring as Twilight. Women watch it but get mad when guys watch porn. Hypocrites

Why do people want to see this crap. The worst part is after all the abuse in the first movie she goes back to that creep

How many do we need

Transformers: The Last Knight Transformers: The Last Knight Product Image

While still bad I thought it was an improvement over 2, 3, and 4 because the final battle wasn't in a city or desert any more it was finally in space.

I thought Age of Exclusive-Trash was bad until I saw this movie.

I would vote for other much more deserving contenders, but those ones are overfilled, but this certain movie deserves to be at this very spot. I was baffled when I watched this film, everything from the overstretched but rushed plot, weak humor, bland characters (they couldn't even get a split-personality British robotic BUTLER to be exciting, what the hell.), a wasted, but talented cast ( such as Anthony Hopkins and Mark Wahlberg) and undeveloped pacing. I will give credit where it's due, Michael Bay sports dazzling visuals, a dramatic soundtrack and various chase/action/fight scenes that'll leave you satisfied for a few minutes.It is not the worst, I can give you that. But it is horrendously mediocre, maybe even awful.

I chose this simply because I expected a lot from the last knight, but sadly my hopes were wrong

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Product Image

Keanu Reeves Rodrick. Keanu Reeves Rodrick. KEANU REEVES RODRICK.

The original movies were more focused on humor revolving around Greg's problems, and while all 3 were getting gradually worse and less accurate, there was no doubt they're all much funnier than this. Instead of the regular problematic humor, it went for slapstick and toilet jokes that were not funny. Even the slightest. And don't get me started on the cast. 0/10.

A big insult to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film franchise and I hope the license for this film gets revoked ASAP. It literally has all 3 aspects of a terrible comedy movie: bad characterization, lack of real humor and moments to make people cringe. In two words, this film is an: EPIC FAIL! It received negative criticism, thanks to the new cast. Jason Drucker, unlike Zachary Gordon from the last 3 DOAWK films, is so whiny and his behavior is cruel. The beloved Devon Bostick is gone; Charlie Wright, the new actor who played Rodrick Heffley, did a horrible job acting and played the Rodrick whose character resembles nothing but that of a bossy egomaniac. In contrast to Rachael Harris who played the thoughtful and funny Mrs. Heffley, Alicia Silverstone plays the Susan Heffley whose character is more toxic and overbearing. Steve Zahn was so funny in the previous 3 DOAWK films and this actor who played Frank Heffley always cared about his son; however, Tom Everett Scott plays the Frank Heffley ...more

They turned Greg into a 7 year old, ROdrick is now a 30 year old emo crackhead. Manny is still high but more high, the parents look like drug dealers and the jokes are so cheap and so as the budget that even a video of me yeeting a banana at my friend has more budget than this trash movie. Thank you.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature Product Image

Who asked for this? The 1st one was so bad. Yes I did watch because my brother forced me to watch and it's so bad

I didn't like the original, and they're already making a sequel? It might be just as bad as the first film isn't it?

No matter how bad people say a movie is, Hollywood will still demand a sequel. Welcome to the new movie era.

Computer Animated movies are horrible now. Every modern one is pointless, with a pointless cast, plot, cheesy jokes, toilet humor, and downright annoying characters. Whatever happened to Shrek, Madagascar, Finding Nemo, or Toy Story?

The Boss Baby The Boss Baby Product Image

As much as I like Dreamworks (on Pokemon Moon, I named my male Primarina Stephano, after the Italian Sea Lion in Madagascar 3), this is where they ran out of ideas. It's about a mature infant (because we haven't heard that before *cough* Family Guy *cough*) who works as a spy and is trying to prove that babies are cuter than puppies with the help of a young child. That premise makes no sense, and I do not plan on seeing it.

Unpopular opinion: I'm pretty sick of the "Memorable Moments" on YouTube. They're everywhere.

Not unpopular, why watch "memorable moments" when you can watch the movie!

The baby boss sucks hey Hollywood if your reading this delete this movie before march 31 2017

I am a pup lover, but I like this movie despite being offended somehow. The visuals are amazing, the plot/concept was just weird but it's enjoyable, the characters are likeable to me not like everyone else, and more.

Baywatch Baywatch Product Image

I'm calling it right now, by the end of the year this movie will be 1 of the biggest box office bombs of the year

I know this will be crap

Why is Detroit number 21? That movie was acclaimed, and is one of the best of the year. Baywatch is easily top 3 worst.

Zack Effron is in it so it's rubbish

Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

I get it. People don't like this movie. But that doesn't man it's a terrible movie. Can we at least get it out of the top 10, possibly the top 20? I mean, Wish Upon and Unforgettable are ranked lower than this. No matter how much you dislike this remake, it is NOT worse than the trash listed below it right now.

Unpopular opinion: Emma Watson was not a good Bella and I'm ticked that they used her to act as my favorite Disney princess.

This movie wasn't really bad when I saw it in theaters. It's better along with the animated movie. But, also a lot better than the animated sequels

Emma Watson-I'm sorry you wasted your talent in this live-action vomit.I feel sorry for you...

The Mummy The Mummy Product Image

I keep seeing ads of this damn movie on YouTube, I can't even watch a video! - Datguyisweird666

I didn't even see the movie and I'm glad I didn't. - shiftaltkey

Jesus did the effects are trash in this movie lol - AlphaQ

I would like them to stop ruining classics with feminist twists or "liberalism" and politically correct stupidities. Here, as much as people like Ahmanet, this character ruined the movie with its hollow presence and stupid motives. I hope that in a new movie or sequel Ahmanet or Nick will never come out again, and Imhotep will appear instead, which is undoubtedly a good character, and basically the god of mummies.

Justice League Justice League Product Image

Better than suicide squad but BvS was like 3 times better than this. This movie is really bad, like laughably bad. The villain is just bland, it's just a cgi monster that smashes things. There are a lot of story conveniences like the scene when Bruce meets Aquaman and there's a drawing on the wall that explains everything, the action sequences and visuals are lame. The narrative is exactly the same as the avengers. The characters that are introduced do not have development. The score and sountrack are forgettable, pure remixes and non interesting music. I don't also like the choice of color that they put on this film, I don't know, it just... doesn't fit. The worst thing is the cgi on superman's face and the fact that he revives and he ends all by himself, endind the movie in an awful way. - Ale99

This movie was just laughable..no not even. This movie was just bad. Like 1/5 type bad. Horrible trash. The movie had so many awkward moments that made me cringe (such as the actor of Flash trying to be funny). This was supposed to be DC's Avengers, but all of the plots and background stories about the characters were rushed by because the editors wanted to put a bunch of mind numbing CGI in the movie. You don't have any emotional attachments to any of the characters and the fight scenes did not pack any punch, because all of it was bland CGI. I give this movie a 1/5 and it should be on the top 10. - shiftaltkey

Should be number 1.

Why is this lower than Ninjago and The Boss Baby? Those we're both funny. This is not.

Humor isn't the only deciding factor in a film's quality, in my opinion this was better. - Extractinator04

The Contenders

Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Product Image

While The Emoji Movie most definitely has to be the worst animated movie, if not, THE worst movie of 2017, this cruddy crossover on the other hand is most definitely the worst direct-to-DVD feature of 2017 tied with Surf's Up 2: Wavemania. Honestly, Warner Bros. is just milking the Tom and Jerry franchise dry at this point. The Wizard of Oz crossover was already bad enough looking back on it, and it's as if these direct-to-DVD features of Tom and Jerry are just made solely to take up a movie time slot on Cartoon Network's weekly schedule.

But what makes this stand out as quite possibly one of the worst Tom and Jerry movies of all time is that the movie blatantly tries to assert itself to be an original movie. Warner Bros., I think you might have been watching too much Teen Titans Go! and Suicide Squad (oh, God. Please don't make Tom and Jerry cross over with them! ) and lost all common business sense that every smart entertainment company should have. Simply mashing two ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It was alright but the threesome between Tom, Jerry and Willy Wonka's wife was really cringeworthy. - AlphaQ

All you need is to watch Nostalgia Critic's and Saberspark's reviews on this movie to see how pointless and absurd this direct-to-DVD cash grab is. Really, the only Tom and Jerry DVD movie "crossover" I liked was the Nutcracker's Tale since they actually made an ORIGINAL story out of it. However, this movie is the complete opposite. Honestly, I'd wish Warner Bros. would stop pumping out all these sub-par direct-to-DVD movies. Whatever happened to good direct-to-DVD movies like Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Tom & jerry & knuckles featuring Dante from the devel may cry series definitive edition with bloopers

Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

I agree 100%! Also Balthazar Bratt is the worst villain in the Franchise!

The Despicable Me franchise is running out of ideas, this movie was sure to prove that. There was also some sort of scenario going on as well which didn't play with the characters in the best possible way. Some of them lost their edge as well, they are still likeable though. Although to be fair, this movie was okay, nowhere near the level of the first 2 though I've gotta say.

This movie sucks, all the characters suck or a minor character sometimes both, the plot is bad, and everything else in this movie is bad. Up until this point I loved minion movies so I bet you could tell how disappointed I was about this movie. The Emoji Movie is WAY better then this stupid piece of junk, so this movie should be number 1. - MarioMaster101

It was okay, but it was kids movie with some redeeming factors. I mean there was a few unpredictable moments, it's beautifully animated and Steve Carrell is great as always! In the first 2 movies, Gru had to face problems and all sorts of things. This movie instead of it having some emotion and depth, it's a cartoon with little to nothing of that!

The Bye Bye Man The Bye Bye Man Product Image

Everything about this movie is garbage. The cinematography is some of the worst I've ever seen, the acting ranges from decent to terrible by the standards of a middle-school play, the CGI looks like trash even when compared to its budget, and the editing is the definition of lazy. What sells this movie as the worst of the year (and one of the worst I've seen in general) is the plot and writing. Every scene in this movie is a cliché fest, but the dialogue exchanges never sound human, The Bye-Bye Man is another all-powerful entity that was clearly trying to rip-off the Slender Man and Candy Man, and even as a concept the movie makes no sense! The Bye Bye Man tricks characters into killing their family and friends, and the only way to stop him is to do exactly that. Excuse me, what? Did you even read the script you just wrote?! The trailers and the movie being marketed as a "true story" are all lies as well. This movie is a complete dumpster fire, one that's far greater than ...more

More like the Pee Pee Poo Poo Man.

Watching/reading reviews, this movie looks so terribly cliche and stupid

The Pee Pee Poo Poo Man (You wont be laughing when you see him)

Woody Woodpecker


Monster Trucks Monster Trucks Product Image

The creators of this movie think that this idea is unique, but there's a fine line between unique and lazy, sure nobody has done this idea, a monster truck that has an actual monster in it, but when you really think about it, it really does sound like a lame idea, it's like making a movie where walls talk, does that sound creative or lazy to you?

From the moment the main guy took a selfie with the monster I instantly knew this was gonna suck

Death Note Death Note Product Image

This and the Magic School Bus reboot have to be the two worst things Netflix has done this year in 2017. Honorable mention goes to them making some of their new anime titles exclusive to them and not simulcasting them. That aside, Death Note and Ghost in the Shell are just two of the most recent examples of why live-action adaptations of anime just don't work.

This isn't like top 10 bad, but it sucked. It does not go along with the original anime at all. Light acts more like an angry bullied brat rather than the calm collected malevolent genius he actually was. The girl was like Misa, only she was more annoying and more malevolent than Light himself. L was a cool character, but it seemed like he wanted revenge and was more vile and angry than his usual eccentric and chill personality.

One of the worst live action anime remakes of ever seen!

Should definitely be above Ninjago and Beauty and the Beast.

Flatliners Flatliners Product Image

The only thing that was scary about this movie was taking my money out of my wallet to see it.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant The Divergent Series: Allegiant Product Image

Ha this author just read Collins' masterpiece for political ambiguity and copied and pasted part of it into a massive pile or manure you can't just copy other authors work and then try to split up the finale for more cash

This was terrible. This movie was definitely 1/5 garbage. The acting was boring and unrealistic, the plot moved along at a much slower pace. You don't care about any of the characters at all. Again, the amount of CGI in this movie gouges out my eyeballs. Insurgent was much better.

Ascendants? Or DEscendants 2!

Lionsgate is evil

Pitch Perfect 3 Pitch Perfect 3 Product Image

I hate these kinds of chick-lit flicks! Even though Girls Trip did well at the box office, that's not stopping me from hating these kinds of films, Unfunny Night did terrible at the box office and was panned by critics, but I can see why. These films aren't executed very well and are sometimes very painful to watch, you need good directors to direct these kinds of movies. So this film might flop as bad as all those other bad chick-lit flicks that came out this year. I don't doubt it at all.

Unpopular Opinion: I'm a teen girl who HATES chick-lit films! All they do is whine about slapping men and getting periods then call each other female dogs. BORING! Anyone agree? Also Pitch Perfect is boring and garbage. They wreck good songs.

The first Pitch Perfect was tolerable. The 2nd Pitch Perfect was annoying. Now, a series so egotistic about itself has to come out with a third piece of trash that caters to basic college aged white girls trying to find themselves.

I always hate pitch perfect and always will.

Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

It was just decent but the sex scene between Smurfette and Elmo was just unnecessary.

This movie was actually pretty good

I thought it was good

This was a good movie

The Lego Ninjago Movie The Lego Ninjago Movie Product Image

I rather see a smash bros movie than ANOTHER Lego MOVIE about a show that no one watches, cares or likes about anymore - VideoGamefan5

Not to be a Grammar Nazi but you should have said "cares about" and then "or likes". There's also a massive fan-base that is still following the show. - Extractinator04

I want to see it, since I loved the Lego movie and the Lego batman movie, but I hear it's not as good - Phillip873

Aka, A cash grab to finish your wallet and a excuse for Lego to make more money! - VideoGamefan5

Well this movie is not bad, but the show is WAY better.

Power Rangers

This looks cool. Hope it doesn't disappoint

Worst movie ever power rangers sucked already now they suck more

Best Reboot Ever

This makes all the worst versions look like citizen Kane.

Mother! Mother! Product Image

This movie is just disgusting. It's about a girl gets rid of people who wrecked her house to Satanic rituals give me chills. And the baby died? Nope. The music credits? Extra nope!

Didn't watch the movie - shiftaltkey



Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Product Image

The only Pirates movie that impressed me was Curse of the Black Pearl. I dislike this franchise because of the over-marketing and hype. Now, this flick is an improvement on Stranger Tides. But it still doesn't succeed to be a great flick like the original and is very decent in my opinion. Decent action, decent effects, decent villain, characters, and Johnny Depp performance is wild like it always is. But It feels so free that it becomes a huge Joke! I guess Curse of the Black Pearl is the only one that I can appreciate.

Sucks. It's an improvement over the 4th one but it's still way too bad. There was a time in which Jack Sparrow was an awesome character but now he has become annoying. Furthermore the story is not even interesting, side-characters do not have development, the plot twist is really dumb, direction is not impressive, etc. Overall, this franchise already had an ending in the third one but they decided to continue the franchise and this is what we got, really lame.

So far, this movie has been slandered by critics. This looks pretty mediocre, and this is coming from a fan of the Pirates franchise before it went downhill. I can't always make it out to the theater, so if I find a website where I can watch it, I'll watch it and write a mini-review.

Everything about this movie screams "END THIS SERIES! " Everything about it is just mediocre and flavorless. This series is like the movie version of Katy Perry. Sure she's passable, but she's never astounding. This franchise in a nutshell. 5/10

My Little Pony: The Movie

No. This movie will mark a golden crown for the franchise. Honestly, since they're planning it for almost a year already, time takes up on this. Plus the trailer of this movie is way different from the ones you commonly see in cinemas but that shows that they're exceptional and are spending their time on the best production choices... well that's all I can say but sorry...

Twilight and her friends now are boring characters. Is the same plot: A new stupid villains arrive, Twilight and her retards slaves mades a stupid travel, they know new characters, Twilight and her friends fight, then reconcile and beat the bad guy with his lesbian and corny "friendship". The (pathetic) End.

Why are they making a movie about a girl show?

I can't hear these words I love my little pony and I'm super exited for the movie bye!
