CURRENTLY RANKED AMONG RT's 100 WORST REVIEWED FILMS of ALL TIME, and HELMED by the RAZZIE "WINNING" DIRECTOR of HUDSON HAWK, BECAUSE I SAID SO COULD EARN DIANE KEATON HER OWN RAZZIE to COUNTERPOINT THAT OSCAR SHE's ALREADY GOT on HER MANTLE.

BUT DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD for IT -- ADD YOUR OWN WORDS BELOW...

DIANE: "Okay -- What wise-ass made my daughter's wedding cake with GOLD icing and RAZZberry colored flowers? I don't think I like what it portends..."

Ye Olde Head RAZZberry

I thought that Diane KEATON was copying Jane Fonda's performance in 2005's "Monster-In-Law."

Response from Head RAZZberry: ...and Fonda was listed on that year's RAZZIE Nominating Ballot for Worst Actress -- Jennifer Lopez made the final five for MONSTER-IN-LAW, but I personally thought Fonda, being the more "reputable" of the two, deserved a RAZZing more...

Oh man, thank you Head RAZZ for adding this film on this forum. I guess it was that you did see that this film was on the list of RT's 100 Worst Reviewed Movies of ALL TIME. I have to say, tough break for Diane Keaton. Of course, she's been in other bad movies, like Town & Country -- and I'm sure that film did win a RAZZIE.

Response from Head RAZZberry: TOWN & COUNTRY was nominated for three 2001 RAZZIES, including Worst Director and Worst Supporting Actress (Goldie Hawn) and "won" one of them: Charlton Heston as Worst Supporting Actor (an Award given jointly for his performances in T&C, the awful remake of PLANET OF THE APES and his voice-over work on CATS & DOGS).

That was my first thought when I saw the trailers.

I guess we can't go back in time and have a revote on Jane Fonda in Monster-In-Law, eh?

Anyway, Head RAZZ, remember those 3 other actresses starring beside Diane Keaton, all 3 of them in the pic above? Laura Graham, Piper Perbo and Many Moore. Laura Graham will be in a new movie soon to come out called Evan Almighty. I know that's a Bruce Almighty Sequel with NO Jim Carrey. Now, it's Evan Baxter, returned to play that role is Steve Carell. Morgan Freeman reprises his role as God. Evan Almighty is about God contacting Baxter and tells him to build an ark in preparation for a great flood. It's like a reference to the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible. Piper Perabo has two other films coming out, one completed, called Ashes, and one still in production, called Carriers. Mandy Moore has a film called Dedication, which is still looking for a release date. She also has a film in-production, but will be in theaters July 4th calle License to Wed, with Robin Williams and John Krasinski.

I guess when comes time to Razz them, we could list them as Worst Screen Couple: Diane Keaton, Laura Graham, Piper Perbo & Mandy Moore??

Worst Screen Couple is only for two characters on screen together, so it would either be:

Diane Keaton and either Mandy Moore, Lauren Graham, or Piper Perabo.
                or         

Diane Keaton and any of her three on-screen daughters.

Yea when comes to Worst Screen Couple, we do have And/Or, like when it came to The Wayans Brothers for Little Man, we had Shawn and Marlon and/or Kerry Washington.

Wow! Her proformance is not worthy of Razzie? Ms. Keaton must have been bad in this one! Maybe we could put it up for Worst Rip Off, if she's taking off Fonda's Monster-in-Law character...

I think the Razzies have used the And/Or in the Worst Screen Couple category for quite some time, but I don't really know when the first time was...

Response from Head RAZZberry: I came up with Worst Screen Couple for The 15th Annual RAZZIES -- And that berry first year, Kevin Costner in WYATT EARP was nominated along with "any of his 3 wives" (LINK). So technically, we've had "and/or" as an option ever since the category was first created...

Response To Head RAZZberry: I was wondering if we are allowed to give a Worst Rip-Off or Remake Razzie Nomination to a performance -- or does it have to be an actual movie? If we can give one to a person, I would recommend Diane Keaton, for ripping off Jane Fonda's Monster In Law character...

tomsmo, I think the Worst Remake or Rip-Off Razzie is for the titles of the films, not for the actors/actresses. Same thing for Worst Prequel or Sequel. As for Keaton, she should be a potential nominee for Worst Actress for 2007.

This movie has some references to like three other films, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Love in the Afternoon (1957), and Fiddler on the Roof (1971).

As for Micheal Lehmann, who "won" the Worst Director RAZZIE for Hudson Hawk (1991), he's kept on directing. His "credits" include Airheads (1994), The Truth About Cats & Dogs (1996), My Giant (1998), 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002), and Trash (2003) (a TV movie). He also has another film called Flakes, currently in-production.

I thought 40 Days and 40 Nights was pretty good Movie.

I'm not sure if Keaton could be considered for The Worst Remake or Rip-Off... I guess a Worst Actress nomination will have to do.

Response from Head RAZZberry: It's a tad early in the year to be predicting with any confidence who our eventual nominees may be -- Though the guest critic on Ebert & Roeper & The Movies did call Diane Keaton's performance in BECAUSE I SAID SO "the worst of her long career."

This film shows one of the major flaws in many mainstream films these days, and it looks like they've paid for it by ending up in the red:  audiences will most of the time not like films featuring characters coldly scheming against each other and then yelling at the top of their lungs in each other's faces at Dramatically Sensitive Moments.  Just because the executives probably hate their parents (which explains a lot about their own habits, frankly) doesn't mean that your average moviegoer wants to see those feelings grafted onto every single piece of celluloid for their viewing displeasure.  Heartlessness on screen does not sell, period.

People don't want to see the star of a movie playing a bad guy.  We all live in the real world and we simply don't like this kind of character being the star.   Remember Batman? Superman?  Critics loved the character of Lex Luxor and the Joker but the audience couldn't have cared less.  Yes, a good actor must play a bad person well in order to lend credence to the good guy.  But we don't want to see the bad guy win.
