Now I know why the Methane Awards had a Worst Animal Movie category. These movies are everywhere!  

I should point out that the Razzie take should include the good aspects of the movie and/or the people involved. Yes, Kevin James is a past Razzie nominee, but he was also an Emmy nominee. And Rosario Dawson could be nominated if the Worst Couple award doesn't get dropped.

If this bombs, I'll add it to my list for Worst Ensemble Cast.
 
Frank Coraci, the director of this film, also made the 1998 RAZZIE classic The Waterboy, and the #8 Worst Film of 2004, Around the World in 80 Days.
 
Kevin James' resume includes: I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (Bottom 40 of 2007, #5), You Don't Mess With the Zohan (Bottom 40 of 2008, #40), and Grown-Ups (Bottom 40 of 2010, #13). Is Kevin James part of the Happy Madison Fellowship?

It's almost like they made this movie with the Razzies in mind.

Just out of curiosity, have the makers of any movie (or any movie studio) ever tried to send DVD screeners to the voting members (like they do for the Oscars)??  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: The closest anyone every came to what you're asking about was in 1996, when M-G-M/UA tried to re-release SHOWGIRLS as a "midnight/so-bad-it's-good/talk-back-to-the-screen" movie, and re-did the film's poster to prominently feature the ad-line: "Winner of an unprecedented 7 RAZZIE® Awards, including Worst Picture." I proudly have that poster framed and hanging on my living room wall. 

Five years later, in 2001, Tom Green insisted in multiple interviews that he had specifically made that year's Worst Picture "winner" FREDDY GOT FINGERED in hopes of sweeing the RAZZIES®, and that when it did go on to "win" 5 statuettes, it was a "dream come true." 

But literally sending screener DVDs "for Your RAZZIE® Consideration"??  Let's just say "Not yet!"

Originally, my Methane Movie Award category for Worst Animal Film was created to recognize one of the bad movie trends of 2010.  I wasn't planning to bring it back this year, but seeing how this trend is still going on, I think I'll change my mind.  In addition to this movie, we had 'Hop' and 'Mr. Popper's Penguins' earlier this year, and we have more on the horizon: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', 'Shark Night 3D', and 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked' among others.

Keep in the mind the reason why movies like this (and the Zohan, Chuck and Larry) is because they bring in money. Now I don't know how well this will do, but I'm sure it'll do fine enough not to be considered a flop. Come on audiences eat up this kind of crap all the time. Seriously all of those movies that GTAHater listed made a 100 million a peice.

Gonna have to disagree with you here. While the Zoo-Keeper does look dumb, I think Kevin James is quite talented.   

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: "Quite Talented"? Based on what?? Can't speak for our other Forum Members, but I cannot recall a single thing James has done that merits more than a passing glance -- and I could name several projects he's been associated with that were more than worthy of RAZZIE® attention (which many of them received)...

James is talented. He just happen to be friends with Sandler so his choices are not good.  

In THE KING OF QUEENS he did a very particular type of comedy acting that borderlines over-the-topness and that at first sight makes him look uncomfortable to be in front of a camera(another good example of this is Ed Helms in THE OFFICE, especially when he started), but it wasn't bad. He was great in HITCH, and he proved he can carry a movie in PAUL BLART. Although I admit I've never seen him do stand-up.

In the official take, you mention the Darwin Award winner who gave the elephant an enema and stood behind him...that I heard was fake.

As for the movie itself, it made me wonder if Dr. Dolittle called James to demand his animals back.

The one that made that genre popular was the 1st DR. DOLITTLE, and that one had bad reviews. So...I guess not.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Just to be clear -- Do you mean the original 1967 Rex Harrison version of DR. DOOLITTLE ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061584/ - IMDb LINK ) which, because Fox forced all of its employees to vote for it, was undeservedly nominated for 9 Oscars, including Best Picture ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061584/awards - IMDb LINK )...or did you mean the 1998 Eddie Murphy "remake" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118998/ - IMDb LINK ) which, though not critically well-received, did do well enough at the box office to spawn multiple sequels ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118998/movieconnections - IMDb LINK )...

No no no no no no no. Talking animal movies go WAY back in Hollywood history, and the series that probably really spawned their popularity was the Francis the Talking Mule series back in the 50's. There were 7 films in that series in all, each enjoyed a degree of box-office success. Francis, (in reality a female mule named Molly) received more fan mail than his/her human costar, Donald O'Connor. Ultimately, Francis' popularity led to the TV series Mr. Ed. Talking animal movies were difficult to make in those days, because the illusion was difficult to create. Francis and Ed were motivated to "talk" by a combination of placing a thread in their mouth and putting peanut butter on their lips, but it was considerably more difficult to find clever ways to make other animals appear to talk. 

The rise of CGI technology has solved that problem, and it is almost astonishing that ole Francis hasn't been revived for a remake. But now that I have tossed that idea out into the ether, it is probably inevitable.

The problem here is that this kind of story is NOT being done well. It hasn't been done well in a LONG time. Other than the lead character being a caucasian zookeeper instead of a black veterinarian, how is this movie any different than the Eddie Murphy "Dr. Dolittle" movies? I'd argue it's not.

If you ask me I think he's starting to become a little too 'entertained' by everything he sees...

Critics give their opinions, and each of us are free to agree or disagree with their opinions. However, when critics are almost unanimously for or against a specific movie, it's probably because it really is that good...or that bad.

Right now, Lady Gaga is the most profitable and successful singer in America, but that doesn't mean she's the best singer out there right now.

My girlfriend mentioned that with the way that they can make the animals mouths movie with computers these days, it makes the talking animals creepy. it isn't good CGI it just makes this film more unsettling as opposed to funny. Who thinks they're going to do a sequel? well, it's not unlikely. But the humor has to be pushing the line between kid and adult that I doubt any parent would take their kids to go see it.

1)GREEN LANTERN has an adapted screenplay*,while this movie is a blatant rip-off.Yes,this one is a bigger sign of the lack of originality in Hollywood,but the other one insulted the source material.
2)Nobody expected this one to be good.The other one had potential,making it all the more dissapointing.
3)The Razzies have eyes for all types of bad movies,but they tend to prefer action movies over family movies.

*I don't wanna go over if it's a remake or not again.

Although I disagree with whatsthepoint over Bale as Batman, I agree that this is a lot worse than Green Lantern. Now onto the review! 
 
The good: 
 
Rosario Dawson: Oh Rosario, why are you in this? Whenever you's on-screen, the movie doesn't seem so soul-suckingly bad! I'd call this your worst movie, but Pluto Nash and Seven Pounds are on your resume too! 
 
The bad: 
 
Joe Rogan: The former Fear Factor host plays Leslie Bibb's new boyfriend, Gayle. He's very annoying and I'd put him in the ugly, except there's a scene where is character does a really cool jump on his bike!
 
Leslie Bibb: She's very annoying as Kevin James' ex. She's a bitch and it's a mystery why anyone would date her other than her hotness!
 
Frank Coraci: Coraci is an Adam Sandler vet and it shows. Interestingly, the Sandler movies he directed (The Waterboy, The Wedding Singer, and Click) are some of Sandler' better movies! Anyways, his direction is flat and unmemorable.
 
The ugly:
  
Maya Rudolph: I was surprised about how annoying Rudolph was in this. Every time her giraffe came on screen, I dreaded it!
 
Adam Sandler: Is anyone surprised that he's here-- and that he's absolutely terrible?
 
Kevin James: Dear Kevin James, never make another movie again. If you make another one, I'll find you. I promise.
 
As terrible as Season Of The Witch was, the CGI wolves were funny bad. Grade: F
 
Next-up: Saw week begins tomorrow, starting with a review of the first one!

I just saw this, and gave it 1/10(could've been 0). 

F.Y.C.: 
-Worst Actor for Kevin James: Maybe.We've debated if he's funny or not,but I think we can all agree he isn't funny in this movie.I haven't seen THE DILEMMA,and I don't think I will because it went straight-to-DVD,so I don't feel urgent to see it.

-Worst Actor for Adam Sandler:Yes.He didn't try at all in JUST GO WITH IT.Here he does try as a the voice of a monkey*...and he's annoying as hell! 

-Worst Actress for Rosario Dawson: No.As SchumacherH8ter said,she's a good actress who's made some bad choices,that's all.

-Worst Supp. Actor for Ken Jeong: No.I'm not defending him.If nobody here finds him funny then it's fair that he gets nominated.I'm just saying that here he...keeps it down.

-Worst Supp. Actor for Donnie Wahlberg:No. Although he did seem confused as to why he's here.

-Worst Supp. Actor for Sylverster Stalone: No.As the voice of the lion, this is one of his best performances.I'm not kidding.

-Worst Supp. Actor for Nick Nolte: No.As the gorilla,he does the best voice work.With this and WARRIOR,I think it's safe to say...he's back! 

-Worst Supp. Actor for Faizon Love: No.Nobody seems to even noticed him as one of the bears.I'm just including him because he was also in BIG MOMMAS 3. 

-Worst Supp. Actress for Leslie Bibb: Yes.Aside from having the worst character,she's just bad.

-Worst Supp. Actress for Cher: Maybe.When she was saying her lines as the lioness,it felt as if she was reading directly from the script.

-Worst Supp. Actress for Maya Rudolph: Maybe.Her work as the giraffe is the equivalent of Sandler's.I haven't seen BRIDESMIDES yet,but I don't think she'll be nominated for that.

-Worst Director:Maybe.Frank Coraci doesn't do anything really memorably bad...and I expected him to do it.  

-Worst Screenplay: Yes.I admit I chuckled a few times, but that was it.  

-Worst Screen Ensemble: Maybe.Despite what I said above,for some reason,all the animal voices switch to annoying during the last 10 minutes or so.And I should warn you that they sing during the end credits.Remember what happened the last time Stallone sang in a movie?

-Worst Screen Couple: No.Some of you doubt James could be with women like them, but he has a natural chemistry with Dawson.

-Worst Remake/Rip-Off: Yes.When I went to the movies with a friend to see TRANSFORMERS 3**,we looked at the berry first poster.I told him that I heard it involved talking animals,and that was all it took for him to say "Dude!What's with the DR. DOLITTLE rip-off?".

-Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment: Yes,and here are 3 reasons why:
1)When James is talking to his brother about his sister-in-law,the brother ends up saying she's flexible,and James says "Yeah,she seems bendy".
2)When James asks Jeong for some keys,the latter asks the former to reach into his pockets...and he does it!In both pockets!
3)James and the gorilla sing along LOW by Flo Rida,a song about oral sex.And the fact they sing it higlights the lyrics for the audience.

-Worst Excuse For A Romantic Comedy: I'm actually glad they mixed these 2 genres,because it gives the movie more chances to be nominated.

-Worst Picture: Yes.

*This monkey was the same one from THE HANGOVER PART II.
**No,I won't apologize for giving it money.

The Dilemma wasn't sent straight to DVD. In fact it was number 2 on it's weekend, but had no legs.
