The consensus at R.T. reads "Jason Statham is game as usual, but this is a thoroughly generic and convoluted heist movie."

What can we say about Parker?
 
That it stars Jason Statham, who managed to escape Razzie noms starring in duds like 2005's Revolver and the 2008 rebake of Death Race, not to mention squandering his talents in various Transporter sequels and rip-offs, all this despite starring in the brilliant Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch?
 
That it also stars Jennifer Lopez, who not only has 9 Razzie noms, but also has 2 Razzie "wins," particularly for the egregious Gigli, and who has never starred in anything as good as LS&2SB or Snatch?
 
That it is directed by Oscar-winning Taylor Hackford, who not only gave us Ray, but he also gave us the incredibly bad 2010 movie Love Ranch starring his Oscar-winning wife Helen Mirren?
 
That it barely eked out over $2 million in box office receipts on its first Friday despite being shown in over 2,200 theaters? 
 
Perhaps we've said enough about this movie already?
 
The audiences stayed away in droves according to Box Office Mojo.  However, the critics have merely shrugged their shoulders.  Check out the Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes and the Metascore at Metacritic. 
 
So, is this movie bad enough for a RAZZING?

I found it odd that this was recommended for not one, but two RAZZIES. It begs the question. Given that...

...Jason Statham also starred in Homefront, and Statham is going against absurdly stiff competition
...Jennifer Lopez has a long history with the RAZZIES that started around the turn of the millennium
...so few people actually saw this film
...it got a relatively forgiving C- at Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, and thus may not be bad enough for our awards

that enough of our voters will actually vote for Parker in either category enough to get it a nomination?

Meanwhile, could Love and Honor easily make it to the finals for Liam Hemsworth despite that film not getting a forum here?

Maybe. A few days ago, CNN En Espańol mentioned this movie while discussing the 3 latinas in Razzie consideration: López, Salma Hayek and Sofía Vergara. The anchorman said "If there are directors who are planning on hiring them, then I hope they don't read about the Razzies".
LOL
