This is a new movie from the Sundance Film Festival that last January (It's getting a release this weekend). I saw the trailer and it looked pretty predicable. However, it's currently sitting at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes with only seven reviews, and that's not a good sign.

Personally, I only feel like this movie should only be considered for acting-nods (Roberts and maybe Highmore). It's just too small for any other categories...

I wasn't  suggesting it be considered for Worst Picture, I was just checking up on it because the reviews haven't been all that great (it's rotten tomatoes score is so low it looked like something that Razzie members should look at).

A couple of months ago we had a discussion on the Scream 4-forum about how bad of an actress Emma Roberts was (it was not really a "discussion" because no one disagreed) So I assume with this movie she should at least be worthy of a mention on the nomination ballot...

worst supporting actress: Emma Roberts/SCREAM 4 and THE ART OF GETTING BY

update: It seems that Emma Roberts has another movie coming up named Celeste and Jesse Forever, So who knows (if the reviews are bad enough) maybe we could also at that movie to the ballot...

As for her co-star Freddie Highmore, I always found him a very dull and bland actor. He lacks any form of charisma...

I don't think Highmore is that bad of an actor, Emma Roberts however I'm not impressed with.

Don't forget that in this movie there's also Elizabeth Reaser,who's also going to be in BREAKING DAWN.

Vits, Do you really want a repeat of last year? (as in a Twilight movie getting to much undeserved Razzie-nominations)

You mean because Jackson Rathbone only gave one bad performance?

We already know who will disagree with you, 27.

It does seem to be a particularly bad week for movies, at least as far as critics are concerned, doesn't it? I wonder: will next week be as abysmal?

27 Years, I highly doubt it. The early reviews for Bad Teacher are pretty good and Cars 2 is made by a studio that has an exceptional track record with critics... But we'll just have to wait and see.

Just out of curiosity, do we also get to see what "The Official Razzie Take" is on this movie?  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Been a bizzy week. Guess we'll see if I have the time...

It seems that Emma Roberts really is trying to follow in her father's footsteps by starring in a string of one bad movie after another.

If so, she's doing a pretty good job...  

If you look at her profile at RT ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/1167710-emma_roberts/ - link ), you'll see that all her movies so far have a "Rotten" rating. (that has to be an achievement on it's own). Considering this, and amount of movies with her that are released on a yearly basis (between 3 and 4), I am suprised that she hasn't entered the Razzie conversation before.

I might be wrong here, but has it recently been very hit and miss with Fox Searchlight since they won a Best Picture for Slumdog Millionaire?

On the one hand you have very solid (critically adored) films like (500) Days of Summer, Crazy Heart, Cyrus, Never Let Me Go, 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Tree of Life, Another Earth and Martha Marcy May Marlene....

But it seems as if every other film is a enormous critical bomb, like Miss March, My Life in Ruins, Post Grad, Amelia, Gentlemen Broncos, Our Family Wedding, Just Wright, The Art of Getting By and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.....

They rarely seem to release movies that aren't either below 20% or above 70% on RT.... Why's that?

Let me put it this way.Us movie fans make lists of our favorite movies,and sometimes of favorite actors,directors,etc.,and also the smallest things like favorite scenes,quotes,etc.But basically no one ever makes a favorite studio list,and I think the same about favorite producers.Why?They don't really have to do with the artistic side of film.Personally,if I go see movie,I won't care about the studio.

Right, but a lot of studios DO have a very good reputation when it comes to releasing quality-films... (among them Pixar, TWC, Sony Pictures Classics and Fox Searchlight)

While others have a very bad reputation when it comes to releasing films... (ASYLUM)

HAHAHAHAHA! The Asylum! Should that even count as studio? More like fan films with budgets of more than $5!
