2009 Worst Movies

Based on third-party critic ratings, the worst reviewed 2009 movie releases.


  1. Old Dogs
    5% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 108 reviews
    "Its cast tries hard, but Old Dogs is a predictable, nearly witless attempt at physical comedy and moral uplift that misses the mark on both counts."
  2. Miss March
    5% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 79 reviews
    "Even by the modest standards of the teen sex comedy genre, the crass, poorly-madeMiss March misses the mark."
  3. All About Steve
    7% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 135 reviews
    "All About Steve is an oddly creepy, sour film, featuring a heroine so desperate and peculiar that audiences may be more likely to pity than root for her."
  4. Whiteout
    7% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 112 reviews
    "Kate Beckinsale is as lovely as ever, and does her best with the material, but moribund pacing and an uninspired plot leave Whiteout in the cold."
  5. Post Grad
    8% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 99 reviews
    "A lightweight, unambitious comedy, Post Grad features fine actors that can do little with its middling, uninspiring script."
  6. My Life in Ruins
    9% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 122 reviews
    "With stereotypical characters and a shopworn plot, My Life in Ruins is a charmless romantic comedy."
  7. Bride Wars
    10% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 141 reviews
    "Bride Wars takes the already wearisome concept of battling bridezillas, and makes it thoroughly insufferable via a lazy script and wholly detestable characters."
  8. Couples Retreat
    11% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 157 reviews
    "Despite a talented cast and some reliably pleasant interplay between Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, Couples Retreat leaves viewers stranded in an arid, mirthless comedy."
  9. The Unborn
    11% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 115 reviews
    "David Goyer's Unborn is a tame genre effort with cheap thrills and scares that border on silliness."
  10. The Stepfather
    11% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 61 reviews
    "This tepid remake of the 1987 cult classic lacks the tension and satirical undercurrents of the original."
  11. The Pink Panther 2
    12% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 132 reviews
    "Underutilizing its talented cast, The Pink Panther 2 is little more than a series of lame slapstick gags."
  12. Did You Hear About the Morgans?
    12% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 120 reviews
    "It gets a certain amount of mileage out of the inherent likability of its stars, but with an unfunny script and a lack of onscreen chemistry, Did You Hear About the Morgans? falls flat."
  13. The Mysteries of Pittsburgh
    12% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 41 reviews
    "A listless interpretation of Michael Chabon's first novel, Mysteries of Pittsburgh features none of the source material's charm, but has coming-of-age film cliches in abundance."
  14. The Ugly Truth
    13% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 169 reviews
    "Despite the best efforts of Butler and Heigl, The Ugly Truth suffers from a weak script that relies on romantic comedy formula, with little charm or comedic payoff."
  15. The Informers
    13% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 105 reviews
    "As miserable and insipid as its protagonists, The Informers fails to provide anything to think about after the sheen of fake blond is gone."
  16. Year One
    14% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 167 reviews
    "Year One is a poorly executed, slapdash comedy in which the talent both in front of and behind the camera never seem to be on the same page."
  17. I Love You Beth Cooper
    14% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 116 reviews
    "Heavily reliant on stereotypes and shallow teen comedy clich├ęs, I Love You Beth Cooper is a humorless affair that fails to capture the charm of its source novel."
  18. Dragonball Evolution
    14% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 56 reviews
    "Executed with little panache or invention, Dragonball Evolution lacks the magic that made the books upon which it was based a cult sensation."
  19. The Other Man
    15% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 40 reviews
    "Despite the best efforts of a talented cast, The Other Man is talky, witless, and tension-free."
  20. Spinning Into Butter
    15% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 33 reviews
    "Both leaden and stilted, Spinning into Butter is an unsubtle drama with stagy direction and lackluster dialogue."
  21. Crossing Over
    16% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 106 reviews
    "Crossing Over is flagrant and heavy-handed about a situation that deserves more deliberate treatment, and joins its characters with coincidences that strain believability."
  22. Love Happens
    16% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 106 reviews
    "Love Happens is a dull, chemistry-free affair that under-utilizes its appealing leads."
  23. An American Affair
    16% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 38 reviews
    "With a plot both undercooked and cliche riddled, An American Affair unsuccessfully mixes a coming-of-age story and a presidential conspiracy thriller."
  24. The Haunting in Connecticut
    17% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 102 reviews
    "Though it features a few scares and some creepy atmosphere, The Haunting in Connecticut ultimately relies too much on familiar horror cliches to achieve its goals."
  25. Dance Flick
    18% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 93 reviews
    "Dance Flick scores a few laughs thanks to the Wayans brothers' exuberance, but it's ultimately a scattershot collection of gags without much direction."
