Maybe we should wait until we see the movie to see if Debbie Reynolds deserves a nomination. Although, the Razzies have a reputation for nominating screen legends for being in lousy movies, and recently, a lot of actresses have been at least in consideration for playing this type of role (including Christine Baranski in THE BOUNTY HUNTER).

This is pretty sad.  This adaptation of a Janet Evanovich novel skipped out on critics.  If that's any indication, fans of the novel are gonna be left disappointed when they see this movie.  Katherine Heigl has surprisingly managed to dodge the Razzies despite being involved in contenders each of the past four years ("27 Dresses", "The Ugly Truth", "Killers", "Life as We Know It", and "New Year's Eve").  This year, she might not be so lucky.  Also, this film is directed by the director of "The Last Song"; written by an Oscar nominee, one of the creators of "Nurse Jackie", and a rookie; and it also stars Jim Shannon from "Terra Nova", Franco Rivera from "Rescue Me", the voice of Sid from the "Ice Age" movies, and the title character from "The Unsinkable Molly Brown".  The producers listed are one of the producers of "Forrest Gump", one of the producers of "Million Dollar Baby", one of the producers of "Synecdoche, New York", and one who's already in trouble with us for producing "Underworld: Awakening".  This movie could stick with us for a while and earn a lot of nods in 2013.

If I may ask a serious question.... Debbie Reynolds is now 79 years old, gonna turn 80 on April Fools Day, and it got me thinking "What if she suddenly drops dead, and she just happens to be in the top five Worst Supporting Actresses by next year?" I know you do not want posthumous awards for this kind of show. Does this mean she is allowed a Razzie "Get Outta Jail Free Card"? 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Wow, whatta morbid thought! Although we have never nominated anyone for a RAZZIE® posthumously, it's bound to happen sooner or later. So far as I know, Reynolds is in fine shape (though I haven't seen her out promoting this film on the talk show circuit) and, even though she will turn 80 on the day we announce this year's RAZZIE® "winners," I see no reason to anticipate her demise, or to concern ourselves with this kind of "what if"... 


Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

GTAHater767: Agreed! Stupid Ass Bogan on a Ledge (as I like to call it) looked promising but I'm eyeing it as either a Bonus Worst New Movie of the Week, or I may create a Member-Started Forum for it.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Just added an Official Forum for MAN ON A LEDGE (after looking through the reviews/ on R.T.). Here's the LINK for it. 

Thanks for the hedz up, gize!

Heigl could still be nominated this year for NEW YEAR'S EVE, right? 

Originally posted by Head RAZZberry

I, too, am perplexed that Heigl has never been a RAZZIE nominee.
 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Technically, yes -- If "The Entire Cast of NEW YEAR'S EVE" gets enough votes for Worst Screen Ensemble. But Heigl herself would need a nawful lot of write-in votes to make the final five for either Worst Actress or Worst Supporting Actress of 2011 -- she did not make the Nominating Ballot as an individual performer...

I will raise a feeble excuse for this movie.  It is based on the first book in a mystery series by Janet Evanovich, which is, I believe, up to number 17 or 18 now.  I cheerfully admit to being a big fan of the series.  I read One for the Money way back when it came out in the '90's and have wolfed down each sequel.  I like the main character, Stephanie Plum, and her misadventures in life.  Not great literature, but fun reading, as satisfying as coffee and a bag of doughnuts. 
 
The books also seemed tailor-made for Hollywood, and I'm surprised it's taken them this long to make a movie.
 
But MY GOD!  Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum?  What were they thinking?  Stephanie needs some grit and sass.  Marisa Tomei could have played her a few years back.  But Katherine Heigl has all the sass of a mayonnaise sandwich on Wonder bread.

I've also got my eye on Man On A Ledge. It has a 10% approval rating at Rotten T and a 37% Metascore. But the reviews on this will probably be in the single digit percentile range, because apparently this wasn't screened for critics.
 
And before I forget, WHY weren't Killers and Life As We Know It nominated for Worst Actress for Katherine Heigl?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I, too, am perplexed that Heigl has never been a RAZZIE nominee. My labeling of her as a "perennial RAZZIE Bridesmaid" was a (too subtle?) reference to both 27 DRESSES, and to the fact that she perpetually comes in 6th in the field for Worst Actress -- perhaps because her films are so unsuccessful not even our Voting Members bother to see them??  

 
My deadlines for Member-Started Forums, given 35% approval rating or less: Apl. 29; The Other Woman. May 6; Walk of Shame. May 20; Godzilla '014. May 27; Blended. Jne. 3; A Million Ways...

They really chose a terrible release date for this. It's clear that they're trying to get guys to see it by showing action scenes in the trailer, but most guys would rather see Liam Neeson in Punches With Wolves -- the only guys that'll see this will be dragged to it by their girlfriends or wives.
