Sometimes movie reviews can be more interesting than the actual movies.

A number of films have been panned in 2016, so we've compiled a list of the most dissed movies and the most scathing things written about them:


"Well, they can't all be Bridesmaids." - Toronto Sun

"The Boss is sketch comedy, with none of the lines coloured in." - The Atlantic


"It's just early April, but I have an early contender for the most loathsome, ill-advised, horribly executed, most spectacularly unfunny movie scene of the year." - Chicago Sun-Times


"London Has Fallen is Donald Trump in film form." -

"London Has Fallen is remarkable only because of how much worse it is than its inane predecessor, 2013's Olympus Has Fallen." - Washington Post

"London Has Fallen is one of those rare films that is good at absolutely nothing." - AV Club


"Have you ever dreamt with your eyes open? Have you ever sat in a theatre wondering who keeps snoring, only to wonder if it might be you? There are new experiences to be had here, not experiences that you'd want, but experiences." - San Francisco Chronicle

"The screenwriters so excessively telegraph each plot twist that the entire script may well have been written in Morse code." - TheWrap

"The whole thing appears to have been designed by some crazed Oedipal wing of the N.R.A." - New Yorker


"Zoolander No. 2 is embarrassing, lazy, and aggressively unfunny. The only good news is that at the pace the franchise is moving, we won't get Zoolander 3 until 2030." - Entertainment Weekly


"When Kiefer Sutherland is the funniest person in your movie, you have a problem." - San Jose Mercury News

"How bad is Zoolander 2? It's Batman and Robin bad." - New York Magazine


"Feels about as fresh as two-day old spanakopita." - Tribune News Service

"Feels like you're watching an entire season of Modern Family in fast-forward." - Time Out

"It's a big fat Greek dud." - Detroit News


"Almost worth watching, if you still find yourself at loose ends after you've given the dog a bath, organised 10 years' worth of tax returns and completely moth-proofed your closet." - Time magazine

"A once-in-a-generation disaster, and one of the most ill-advised and ill-conceived studio films of this modern blockbuster era." - indieWIRE

"This is a film that requires an instruction manual going in - or perhaps years of training alongside solemn mages - simply to possess the superhuman endurance needed to enjoy it." - The Atlantic


"'I fear I may never see you again,' Alice laments to the Hatter toward the end of the movie. After one sequel too many, we can only hope she's right." - Washington Post

"If you see Alice Through the Looking Glass, prepare to lean forward in your seat just to stay awake." - San Francisco Chronicle

"I don't remember the last time I saw actors more dispirited and bored than in Alice Through the Looking Glass." - The New Republic


"Dirty Grandpa is like watching a friend's mediocre improv troupe do an extended spring-break sketch. And your friend just happens to be Robert De Niro." - New York Times

"Dirty Grandpa feels like spending 100-plus minutes with a scatological toddler, proudly showing you what he made in his diaper. Don't look if you don't have to." - Entertainment Weekly

"I began giggling with a kind of metaphysical embarrassment for everyone involved in the enterprise, and, eventually, for all of humanity itself." -


"Try to remember this movie, a few days after seeing it, and you'll find that - like magic - it's disappeared." - Seattle Times

"This flashy, brain dead sequel turns 2013's dumbest movie into 2016's dumbest franchise." - indieWIRE

"By the time we get to the London-based finale, the illusion the Horsemen pull off comes across as just completely implausible. It's almost as if the filmmakers were saying - didja get all that? Well, too bad." - Toronto Sun


"Mother's Day is a total mess, but what's truly offensive is that they didn't even try to make this cynical, post-Sunday brunch cash grab even remotely watchable. Your mum deserves so much better this Mother's Day." - Tribune News Service

"Want some racism and sexism with your holiday celebration? The repellent Mother's Day has a surprising, distasteful, and shameful amount of both." - Chesapeake Family Magazine

"Alleged comedy relief comes in the form of racist jokes and gags about the male fear of sanitary products. You have been warned." - Scotsman
