Disney needs to stick to what they do best ... have Pixar make all their movies for them, because their live-action movies (and their hand-drawn animated movies) are just plain sh*t!

Earlier this year, Robin Williams starred in the critcally acclaimed "World's Greatest Dad,"  and John Travolta starred in the semi-successful remake of "Taking of Pelham 1-2-3."  So I don't see either of these two getting Razzie nominations, though John Travolta's already a likely contedner for Worst Actor of the Decade for the infamous fiasco "Battlefield Earth" (L. Ron Hubbard took a harder hit earlier this week when his so-called 'church' was fined $900K).  Even if Travolta and/or Williams were nominated for Worst Actor or Worst Screen Couple, I'd guess they would lose to somebody esle (though I don't know who at this time).

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: While you are correct about the reviews for http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1262981/ - WORLD'S GREATEST DAD ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1213731-worlds_greatest_dad/ - R.T. LINK ) almost no one saw that film ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=worldsgreatestdad.htm - B.O. MoJo LINK ). And while Travolta in the remake of http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1111422/ - PELHAM 123 did okay at the box office ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=takingofpelham09.htm - MoJo LINK ) it cost way more than it grossed, and only got middling reviews ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1207149-taking_of_pelham_1_2_3/ - R.T. LINK ).

Either way, critical and movie-goer reaction to other films from RAZZIE® eligible Actors in any given year is often not a factor in their prospects for getting attention from us. A perfect example: Tom Cruise starred in both the Best Picture Oscar® winner ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095953/awards - IMDb LINK ) and the Worst Picture RAZZIE® "winner" ( http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Awards/Razzie_Awards/1989 - IMDb LINK ) in the same year -- 1988.

I'm going to have to study Scientology in considerably more depth. Evidently, there is some tenant in the faith that states that if you are an actor, after making a few very respectable movies and rising to the top of respectability in Hollywood, you are required to make a series of films that will utterly flush your career.

See: John Travolta, Tom Cruise et al.

Robin Williams also has an upcoming stand up special on HBO called Robin Williams: Weapons of Self-Destruction.

The irony of it kills me.

I think Robin Williams should stick to just doing stand-up specials. He used to star in good, funny movies, but now he seems to accept anything that is put in front of him!

There are rumors that Travolta is considering leaving the Church of Scientology.
The way I've heard Scientology works is that they have their  mythology about aliens and bombs and angry ghosts, but that the practice of Diantetics (using the e-meters and all of the actual practices -- aside from paying a LOT of money) is basically hypnosis. While under hypnosis, members talk about everything that's bothering them, and by doing so, get rid of their emotional problems and "space ghosts" (which I don't think they really believe in). I think they add the element of absurdity so that people will believe that it's actually a religion...

ALL organized religions are pretty much people getting hypnotized and thinking that will get rid of their problem while they throw a LOT of money way towards their clergy.

Travolta and Williams are well-matched, as they are two of Hollywood's most unattractive actors. The dogs in this film are better looking than them. I knew right away when I saw the ad for this film that it was a "dog". Woof!

What happened to Robin Williams? We should really give him a Razzie, just to shove it in his face that he needs to stop starring in crap movies. Oh yea, we should also shove Razzies into Walt Becker's face, so he'll stop making these excruciatingly bad family  "comedies" (I can't even look at the previews for this movie -- almost as bad as those Seltzerberg movies).

There are simply not enough Razzies to go around, it seems, and to increase the amount would decrease their meaning. I dunno if this movie is really all THAT offensive to the senses, but apparently it's almost as bad as Miss March was supposed to be, so... Yea, just consider that two A-List celebrities, one of whom is supposed to be a comedy legend, couldn't make a movie that was better than 2 guys who write sketch comedy, and have no movie acting experience whatsoever. Come to think of it, I've just convinced myself - Old Dogs deserves a Razzie more than Miss March.

I can't STAND this movie! The reviews were some of the nastiest all autumn, and Robin Williams' and John Travolta's films have failed all decade. Either one of them would be good choices for nomination.

And Disney? Why do they keep exercising their futility with live action?!?!

Personally, I would love nothing more than for The Disney Company to go the way of the dodo. Sadly, this will never happen because they have family entertainment by the balls and they refuse to let them go.

Would you stop it?!I know it isn't well done,but I laughed a lot(yes,I'm an adult).It wasn't one of the funniest movies I've seen,but it's O.K..Although,it's true that the actors themselves aren't funny.

Travolta gave one of my favorite performances in HAIRSPRAY,but I don't like him in other movies(not even SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and PULP FICTION,which earned him Oscar noms.).

Robin Williams was hilarious in the '80's and '90's,but now...well,he's still funny,but the character he plays isn't really written to be funny,unlike the one from " http://razzies.com/forum/rv_forum112.html - R.V. "(in which he really wasn't funny).

Kelly Preston doesn't really have a lot to be considered a good or bad actress in this movie,due to sreentime,and how her character was written to be.

My review:

Two best friends -- one unlucky-in-love divorcee and the other a fun-loving bachelor -- have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of six-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins, leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a new-found understanding of what’s really important in life.

I will say this now: I loved this movie. I'm sure it will hold up well with repeated viewings. Saying that, I found this film a VERY FUNNY screwball comedy. I must say, the film was much better than I expected and I'm happy that it went over my expectations. I also loved the music in here, which plays an important role in the movie.

The actors in the film worked really well with each other. Frances McDormand plays fantastically in her role (not surprisingly). Amy Adams's comedic timing in the film is perfect, whom provides most of the laughs in the film. Lee Pace also plays really well as a supporting role. There are also a few other supporting roles that were good but just too many to list here.

I feel really great after seeing the film. The film is just happy, sweet, and charming. The performances were all great and the laughs are definitely there. The score is beautiful and soothing to a human's ear. If you would like to watch a different comedy, unlike most outrageous comedies being released these days, you should see this film. 8/10

I think while you were watching "Old Dogs" it was so bad that you subsituted it for "Mrs Petigrew for a Day" or something similar, coz you seemed to have melded two movies together my friend.

I just re-watched to make sure I gave it the right rating,which was 5/10.I was right.Except for a few forced laughs* I laughed and laughed and laughed.But because of the predictable plot,silly directing,and a lazy John Travolta(deserved the nomination)you can't help to think the comedy it achieves is just luck.
 
I'm still against it being nominated for "Worst Picture" and "Worst Supporting Actress".

Time to rip into an over-ripe piece of dog sh*t!
 
The good:
 
Dax Shepard and Luis Guzman's cameo: There two scenes are the only scenes that feel lively.
 
The bad:
 
Rita Wilson: Wilson has less than five minutes of screen-time, but makes a big impression. A BAD, big impression; imagine the reverse of Viola Davis in Doubt! In that limited screen-time to gets her fingers jammed in a trunk and ends up the hospital. Fitting.
 
Walt Becker: The director of this and Wild Hogs needs to be trampled by both dogs and hogs!
 
Kelly Preston: Usually, I disagree with all the attention she gets from the Razzies. This, on the other hand, is completly justified!
 
The ugly:
 
Robin Williams: He hasn't been funny since the 2000 Academy Awards*. This is no different.
 
John Travolta: Can we launch John Travolta into outer-space? I don't think anyone would mind.
 
Trying to shoe-horn a PG-13 movie into a PG-rating: I mentioned in the main forum, that I read somewhere that this was supposed to be PG-13, but it bombed with test-audiences, so they re-edited it to be PG. This makes sense because of all the scenes that seem out-of-place (i.e. the viagra joke**) and the LONG time between the finish date and the release date.
 
God this was bad! I watched Contagion today*** and I'd rather live in that movie's universe than watch this again! Grade: F
 
Next-up: Cats & Dogs 2!
 
*he sung Blame Gate of Hell from the South Park movie with every Canadian stereotype running around in the backround!
**interestingly enough, that crappy The Pink Panther remake, also, started life as a PG-13 movie, but was edited down to a PG after bad test-screening and had a viagra joke!
***I gave it a B, would have been higher if there was more scenes of Goopy Paltrow in pain!
