Anthony Anderson?! I thought he was hilarious! 

I also disagree about Cuba Gooding Jr's movies(except RADIO). And DUMB & DUMBERER should've won!

I gave CAT IN THE HAT 40%. It's true that they exagerated with the PG themes, but that makes it less true to the source, not less funny.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I have to disagree, and confess that CAT IN THE HAT, alarmingly "loosely based" on a children's classic from my childhood, was one of the worst kids' movies I've ever seen. Since it takes all of 4.5 minutes to read the book, of course they had to stretch out and elaborate on the original material to make a feature length film -- But in doing so, I would argue, they completely disrespected their source. The elements of sexual innuendo, the cameo by Paris Hilton and the overall tone of cloying/annoying pandering to what they seemed to assume was an audience of ADD-addled idiots, all combined for one of the most memorably awful movie-going experiences of my life. 

Other than that...

Yeah, I remember they released a new book of "Cat in the Hat" based on the movie, and it was NOTHING like the original book, besides the two kids being bored and the CITH showing up to entertain them.

I just saw MY BOSS'S DAUGHTER and gave it 3/10. It deserved to "win" Worst Screen Couple. Tara Reid wasn't in the movie enough, but based on what I saw, if she had been given more screentime, she'd have been bad enough to be razzed. Ashton Kutcher wasn't great in this (nor in CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN) but I found him far from bad. And I thought he was actually good in JUST MARRIED.

Yeah, nothing was going to top "Gigli" in 2003. Between the overhype about the romance of "Bennifer" (and the fact that their movie was stupid on every level) "My Boss's Daughter" didn't stand a chance!

Brittany Murphy relied too much on the "Whisper when sad" technique, which became her trademark. Did she deserve the nomination? Well,she wasn't awful. But "Worst Couple"? The two had chemistry!

JUST MARRIED is very funny,but it's an insult to the intelligence. I know sh*t about relationships, but I know more than the script writer. It's true that arguments and fights aren't the same thing, and that married couples argue a lot but don't fight a lot. In the movie the characters fight, then they make it seem like arguments, and that's it.

I give it 5/10.

2) Shouldn't THE CAT IN THE HAT be listed as a Remake/Sequel too?

1. Basically, "Worst Excuse for an Actual Movie" was for stupid ideas that went horribly wrong because they were stupid ideas. Or as the subtitle says, "all concept without any actual content."   

2. Not really, since it was an adaptation (if you can even call it that), not a remake or sequel to an original movie.

Isn't an "adaptation" a remake?  

I know I said I didn't hate CAT IN THE HAT, but the main reason I thought it was bad anyway (and most of the people did) is because it had barely anything to do with the book. It deserved to win this!

"Isn't an adaptation a remake?" -- Not unless you count the direct-to-VHS, animated short that was based on the book.

OK, two things.
 
1: Why just Ben with Lopez? Why not let it be Ben Affleck and either Jennifer Lopez in Gigli, Jennifer Gardner in Daredevil or Uma Thurman in Paycheck? By extension, why not also have Piper Perabo from Cheaper By the Dozen up there with Tara and Brittany(Rest in Peace) against Ashton?
 
2: Why Mort Nathan as worst director? What's so special about him? Shouldn't that nom be McG for Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle?

1)I think it was because GIGLI wasn't meant to be a rom-com until those 2 were cast, and the Razzies wanted to say F.U. to the studios for thinking people are that dumb. As for Piper...you're right. She spent more time with Ashton than Tara. But I guess it's because they weren't a good couple on purpose? 

2)The directing was the worst part of BOAT TRIP. If anything McG deserved a nom. for TERMINATOR 4.

I just saw DUPLEX.Drew Barrymore was a little lazy but she didn't deserve "Worst Actress".I found the R.T. concensus unfair:"It was funnier when it was called THROW "MOMMA" FROM THE TRAIN".I give it 3/10.

I just saw PAYCHECK.
 
John Woo's directing was a step up from FACE/OFF in terms of action.But it was a step down in terms of handling the script.At first it's very intriguing.But halfway through the movie you see where it's going,and how it will end,and the action scenes somehow become boring.
 
This won "Worst Actor".Ben Affleck's performance was weak.Aaron Eckhart was alright.Uma Thurman...nothing worth mentioning.Paul Giamatti...I don't know if he was a star back then,but he deserves more than being the comic relief who barely appears.At least the funny sidekick who's with the hero in every scene!
 
I give it 5/10.

Because I saw it when I was 13, I decided to re-watch the MATRIX trilogy. It deserved both its Oscar wins and Razzie nominations.

Of course that I was blown away by the style of THE MATRIX. And while I also liked the phylosophical themes, I didn't really like the story. Best Performance? Hugo Weaving (he was over-the-top in a good way). Worst Performance? Keanu Reeves. He only showed true emotions during the fights, and being angry at your adversary isn't really an emotion, right?

Of course that the story couldn't support a sequel, and let alone 2. And it didn't. THE MATRIX RELOADED consisted on mostly talking, and I only cared about it when they referenced those phylosofical themes, nothing else. The fights started to feel obviously choreographed, and the action sequences were too long and tedious.

THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS was less boring, but I just didn't care about the characters. And the story got too convoluted. Most of the acting sucked, including Weaving who got over-the-top in a bad way. As for the ending... I didn't care that it was ambigious, it was how they presented it. It felt like they ran out of reel.

I give them 7/10, 1/10 and 1/10 respectively.

2003. Agent 003's body was found in the arctic with a microchip with Zorin's calling card on it. Here's my take on the Year of the Chilled Microchip, Two Double-O-Three:
 
Films that should've been RAZZed, but didn't: 4
House of the Dead
The Haunted Mansion
View From the Top
Jeepers Creepers 2
 
Films that got RAZZed, but shouldn't have: 2
The Matrix Reloaded
Radio
 
Films that got RAZZed to the wrong degree: 3
Dumb and Dumber'er: When Harry Met Lloyd (Not RAZZed enough)
Kangaroo Jack (Not RAZZed enough)
Boat Trip (Not RAZZed enough)
 
Worst Trends/Events of 2003:
V. All the lousy dark-of-night thrillers (Cold Creek Manor, Dreamcatcher, The Hunted, Bulletproof Monk)
IV. Superhero themed films dipping in quality (Ex. HULK, Daredevil)
III. Ben Affleck, his 3 strikes, and his crumbling relationship with J-Lo
II. Underachievers trying to dance in an American Idol champ's unbearable crossover (The badly-executed Choreography of From Justin to Kelly made the RAZZIES governor HeadRAZZBerry intervene with a special award!)
I. Unusual concepts, content-free nonsense (There's a difference between the Special Category and Worst Picture. Worst Picture just means the most infamously bad overall. Worst Excuse For an Actual Movie takes aim at films with unorthodox concepts, that when they actually made them into films, they just came out nonsensical and content-free)

I have a theory: The only reason Gigli was even made was to promote "Bennifer," since everyone in the tabloids talked about those two constantly back at that time. Just like The Hottie and the Nottie pretty much is a Paris Hilton "infomercial." Luckily for Ben Affleck, he has the Oscar for Argo to help him forget this dreadful film. Question is, well Jennifer Lopez ever find a way to forget about Gigli as well? I highly doubt it, especially with her 2013 co-starring role in Parker.

Side note: I hear they are doing an animated adaptation of "Cat in the Hat". Do you guys think it will be better or worse than the Mike Myers version?

You're sort of right. The movie was originally going to be a crime thriller, but when they hired Affleck & Lopez, the studio demanded that the script was re-written into a rom-com.

Considering how many times she's been nominated since 2003 (including Worst Actress of the Decade) for different types of movies, I think it's fair to say that if she had any acting talents she would've displayed them by now.

I actually had a question about the two adaptations for "Cat in the Hat" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I have seen both films, I do agree with you that Cat in the Hat was an awful film. Even though I didn't love How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I thought it was "okay". I believe it did get some Razzie consideration back when it was realized. HeadRazz and anybody who wants to answer this, which do you think of the two films is the worst?

I'm sure most people will tell you that they prefer GRINCH over CAT. While Carrey didn't play the character like he was in the books (which is the script writers' fault), he still did a good job overall. Unlike Myers, who has a hard time coming out of his comfort zone and basically played the same character he always plays.

To oiram: Even though I haven't seen Out of Sight yet, I don't think it could've gotten such critical acclaim without a good performance from Jennifer Lopez. She, Steven Soderbergh, and George Clooney obviously did a good job with it because it got 93% approval rating at Rotten T, several award accolades, and 9th place on the Retro Top 40 Movies of '998.

To Vits and moviecritic1994: To someone with less familiarity with American cinema history than me, it would seem weird that J-Lo was great before Y2K and terrible after Y2K. For me, it's basic knowledge. As I've told many people here, 2000 and the New Millennium set a new low in the mode-average quality of cinema, and with the exception of my annual Top 40 lists, most years from 1950 to 1999 in film were better than the best year since January 1, 2000. Adam Sandler is another adequate example. He may not have stood out THAT far as great in the 1990s, but in the autumn of 2000, critics derided Little Nicky as the nadir of his career at the time, and I can credit the RAZZIEs in that Little Nicky was Adam Sandler's first film to really deserve our nominations. More than 3/4 of what Sandler has done since New Millennium's Day has very well earned our awards, nominations, and consideration. An exception is how Punch-Drunk Love met the good qualifications and made it to 40th place on the Top 40 Films of '002 (out of a pool of about 300 films to choose from).

To rushmore: The problem with The Room was that it was an independent film, in contrast to Gigli, The Cat in the Hat, From Justin to Kelly, Dumb and Dumber'er: When Harry Met LLoyd, Kangaroo Jack, and Boat Trip, which were all major Hollywood wide releases. Even The Haunted Mansion was considered for the Worst of 2003 RAZZIES because it had more Hollywood anchoring than The Room. Limited releases will get RAZZIE nominations occasionally, such as Piranha 3DD and Atlas Shrugged Part 2, but even they were better known and had more Hollywood backing than The Room or Birdemic: Shock and Terror.

They could've nominated it the next year when they celebrated their 25th anniversary. What are these awards for if they don't reward movies like this?

I saw the movie Gigli, and I found it very offensive to mentally ill people and gay women! Gosh, two movies where Ben Affleck has the superpower to turn a lesbian into straight is way too much 

The ONLY thing I liked about it was Justin Bartha, Thank God he wasn't nominated
