They really chose a terrible release date for this. It's clear that they're trying to get guys to see it by showing action scenes in the trailer, but most guys would rather see Liam Neeson in Punches With Wolves -- the only guys that'll see this will be dragged to it by their girlfriends or wives.

I've also got my eye on Man On A Ledge. It has a 10% approval rating at Rotten T and a 37% Metascore. But the reviews on this will probably be in the single digit percentile range, because apparently this wasn't screened for critics.
 
And before I forget, WHY weren't Killers and Life As We Know It nominated for Worst Actress for Katherine Heigl?  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I, too, am perplexed that Heigl has never been a RAZZIE nominee. My labeling of her as a "perennial RAZZIE Bridesmaid" was a (too subtle?) reference to both http://www.razzies.com/forum/more-2008-movie-forums-listed-alphabetically-27-dresses_forum252.html -

I will raise a feeble excuse for this movie.  It is based on the first book in a mystery series by Janet Evanovich, which is, I believe, up to number 17 or 18 now.  I cheerfully admit to being a big fan of the series.  I read One for the Money way back when it came out in the '90's and have wolfed down each sequel.  I like the main character, Stephanie Plum, and her misadventures in life.  Not great literature, but fun reading, as satisfying as coffee and a bag of doughnuts. 
 
The books also seemed tailor-made for Hollywood, and I'm surprised it's taken them this long to make a movie.
 
But MY GOD!  Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum?  What were they thinking?  Stephanie needs some grit and sass.  Marisa Tomei could have played her a few years back.  But Katherine Heigl has all the sass of a mayonnaise sandwich on Wonder bread.

Heigl could still be nominated this year for NEW YEAR'S EVE, right?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Technically, yes -- If "The Entire Cast of NEW YEAR'S EVE" gets enough votes for Worst Screen Ensemble. But Heigl herself would need a nawful lot of write-in votes to make the final five for either Worst Actress or Worst Supporting Actress of 2011 -- she did not make the Nominating Ballot as an individual performer...

GTAHater767: Agreed! Stupid Ass Bogan on a Ledge (as I like to call it) looked promising but I'm eyeing it as either a Bonus Worst New Movie of the Week, or I may create a Member-Started Forum for it.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Just added an Official Forum for MAN ON A LEDGE (after looking through the reviews/ on R.T.). Here's the http://www.razzies.com/forum/member-discussion-addl-info-on-man-on-a-ledge_forum602.html -

If I may ask a serious question.... Debbie Reynolds is now 79 years old, gonna turn 80 on April Fools Day, and it got me thinking "What if she suddenly drops dead, and she just happens to be in the top five Worst Supporting Actresses by next year?" I know you do not want posthumous awards for this kind of show. Does this mean she is allowed a Razzie "Get Outta Jail Free Card"? 


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Wow, whatta morbid thought! Although we have never nominated anyone for a RAZZIE® posthumously, it's bound to happen sooner or later. So far as I know, Reynolds is in fine shape (though I haven't seen her out promoting this film on the talk show circuit) and, even though she will turn 80 on the day we announce this year's RAZZIE® "winners," I see no reason to anticipate her demise, or to concern ourselves with this kind of "what if"...

This is pretty sad.  This adaptation of a Janet Evanovich novel skipped out on critics.  If that's any indication, fans of the novel are gonna be left disappointed when they see this movie.  Katherine Heigl has surprisingly managed to dodge the Razzies despite being involved in contenders each of the past four years ("27 Dresses", "The Ugly Truth", "Killers", "Life as We Know It", and "New Year's Eve").  This year, she might not be so lucky.  Also, this film is directed by the director of "The Last Song"; written by an Oscar nominee, one of the creators of "Nurse Jackie", and a rookie; and it also stars Jim Shannon from "Terra Nova", Franco Rivera from "Rescue Me", the voice of Sid from the "Ice Age" movies, and the title character from "The Unsinkable Molly Brown".  The producers listed are one of the producers of "Forrest Gump", one of the producers of "Million Dollar Baby", one of the producers of "Synecdoche, New York", and one who's already in trouble with us for producing "Underworld: Awakening".  This movie could stick with us for a while and earn a lot of nods in 2013.

Maybe we should wait until we see the movie to see if Debbie Reynolds deserves a nomination. Although, the Razzies have a reputation for nominating screen legends for being in lousy movies, and recently, a lot of actresses have been at least in consideration for playing this type of role (including Christine Baranski in THE BOUNTY HUNTER).

I'm one of the fans of these books Cry, and probably won't see it.  Katherine Heigl should get a Razzie simply for breathing!    
 
But Janet Evanovich has legions of fans, so the picture may do decent box office its first weekend.  I don't expect to see any sequels, though, unless this movie is much, much better than the previews.  I'm not holding my breath.

On the front-page, HeadRazz compares Heigl to Jennifer Aniston. I think that's kind of insulting... to Aniston! Aniston left her show when it ended. Heigl left her show because she thought she was better than it. The worst thing Aniston has done was The Bounty Hunter. Heigl's had three movies (The Ugly Truth, Killers, and New Year's Eve) worse than that.

Well, a positive review came in. The same guy gave positive reviews to Underworld 4, The Darkest Hour, Johnny English Reborn, The Tree Musketeers, Dream House, What's Your Number?, The Change-Up, Transformers 3, Green Lantern, Hangover II, Something Borrowed, and Take Me Home Tonight and negative reviews to Tintin, The Muppets, and A Dangerous Method

I've already given my feelings on Aniston vs Heigl, but I've got another reason why Aniston is the better of the two of them (and why that article is wrong): Aniston ventures out of her comfort zone. Her last movie (Horrible Bosses) wasn't a rom-com and she's been in several non-rom-coms before (i.e. Office Space, The Good Girl, Derailed). But Heigl, since becoming a "star" in 2007, has never made a non-rom-com.

Seems like it won't have an actual R.T. concensus, but it'll stay between 3-7%.

Recently watched this movie to see if it's Razzie-worthy. This pile of garbage definitely is. 

First problem is the screenplay. This movie is supposed to be funny. The truth is that this crap is as funny as a documentary about a brutal dictator. I really tried to find something funny as I was watching but I couldn't because it wasn't fun to watch at all. Assuming there won't be worse movies coming out Stacy Sherman, Karen Ray and Liz Brixius should get the nod for Worst Screenplay. 

Direction is also poor. Julie Anne Robinson did a terrible job. She made little, if any, effort to get the actors to display on-screen chemistry. Perhaps Julie Anne Robinson is trying to win Worst Director? It wouldn't be surprising. 

Katherine Heigl definitely deserves the Worst Actress nomination. She has failed to show comic talent in the comedies I watched with her as the lead. Apparently Stephanie Plum is supposed to be a one tough woman. Instead Katherine Heigl delivered to the audience a weak and ineffectual character. Heigl's portrayal of Stephanie Plum is a setback in efforts to achieve equality among women and men. Heigl is definitely Worst Actress worthy. 

The supporting cast were quite bland, and that's putting it kindly. Jason O'Mara is unconvincing as the cop on the run. Perhaps he has become fed up playing a law enforcer (Life on Mars, Terra Nova). Sherri Shepherd over-acted in this movie. 

With little on-screen chemistry between the cast Katherine Heigl and Jason O'Mara deserve the nomination for Worst Screen Couple. The entire cast also deserve Worst Screen Ensemble.

Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes a movie guaranteed to win Razzies.

The rating on Rotten Tomatoes has dropped to 2%. So far, so bad.

Before I start ripping this to shreds (we're skipping the good paragraph again), I'd like to acknowledge that Vheid was right. In The Devil Inside forum, he predicted that Battleship (which won't get a good paragraph either) would be worse than this. I said that Battleship had the potential to be So Bad It's Good. After seeing both, I realize that he was right. 
 
Jason O'Mara plays terrible as a "dirty" cop who may or may not have shot an innocent civilian (he's mostly known for Terra Nova, a show that gives Enterprise a run as Worst Show That Brannon Braga Worked On). Daniel Sunjata is terrible as Ranger. Yes, the character's name is Ranger. It's not his worst movie, as he narrated the third iteration of Loose Change. Yes, he's a truther. 
 
Debbie Reynolds is pretty bad as Heigl's senile Grandma. I was going to put her in the bad paragraph, but one of the last movies we watched in my Critical Perspectives Of Film class was Singin' In The Rain* and the quality drop-off is immense! The script is worse than Batlleship's and man does that say a lot! Julie Anne Robinson does as well as someone whose previous movie was a Razzie nominated Miley Cyrus vehicle based on a Nicholas Sparks book. But, worst of all is Katherine Heigl. As Stephanie Plum, she shows no acting competence what-so-ever. Out of her five last movies (this included) only one didn't get an F. (The non-F was Life As We Know It, which got a D-) Her accent is atrocious as well, seeming at times to be random.
 
Before this movie came out, Heigl indicated that she wouldn't mind returning to Grey's Anatomy. Jesus she's desperate. And stupid if she thinks that they'll forgive her for her unproffesional behavior**! 

Grade: F
 
Next-up: Battlesh*t!!
 
*It's the only movie in that class to get a standing ovation.
**For example, she lambasted the producers for making her work 17 hours, when the reason it was 17 hours was because she was given time off to promote The Ugly Truth.

A few months ago, GREY'S ANATOMY had one of those "What would've happened if..." episodes. Characters from the past came back, except Heigl's, T.R. Knight's and Isaiah Washington's (they all got fired). So, she's not coming back.

After I went to the movies to see ARGO a few days ago (thanks for the recomendation; it was good), I thought I'd check this one out. It currently ranks #9 in my all-time worst list, write above SUPERBABIES: BABY GENIUSES 2 (there are 62 titles so far).

For your consideration:
-Worst Actress for Katherine Heigl. This isn't like in previous years where she was in consideration for starring in bad and for playing the same character over and over. This time, she... is... just... bad!
-Worst Supp. Actor for Daniel Sunjata. But only if he gets a combined nomination with GONE (not with THE DARK KNIGHT RISES).
-Worst Supp. Actor for John Leguizamo. Same as above (with ICE AGE 4).
-Worst Supp. Actress for Debbie Reynolds.
-Worst Screen Ensemble.
-Worst Director.
-Worst Picture. Move over GONE. I have a new main contender.

I didn't put Worst Screenplay because, according to fans, the movie disrespects the book mostly in the casting department. Odd, since the book has detailed descriptions of the characters.

I dunno.  I don't feel this movie was all that bad.  I found it to be more lame than bad.  If you want a bad movie about a bounty hunter, then let's talk about The Bounty Hunter, which was laughable for all the wrong reasons.  But this movie?  Let's compare and contrast:  
 
Both movies bombed with their comedy - their jokes just weren't funny. 
 
One for the Money has their couple gradually and successfully make the transition from hating each other to being in love with each other over the course of the movie, while Bounty Hunter tries to do the whole transition over one dinner and completely botches it - probably the only part of the movie where I laughed -- and it was supposed to be romantic.  
 
Both movies had way-too-obvious plots and endings.
 
One for the Money had some actual moments of good acting - not enough to really talk about, except that it's a definite contrast over the ineptitude of Aniston, Butler and the rest in Bounty Hunter.
 
I actually found myself caring for the characters in One for the Money, even though the whole premise was ridiculous.  I really hoped the characters killed each other off in Bounty Hunter, and was disappointed even about that. . . .
 
See what I mean?  If I want to bestow Razzies, I want something at least as bad as The Bounty Hunter, and One for the Money just isn't bad enough.
 
As for Katherine Heigl's lack of acting skills, well, at least she's more expressive with her face than Jessica Alba has ever been. . . .
