If you’ve already seen the best movies of the past few decades, then maybe it’s about time to watch the worst ones. While some people would argue that watching a badly reviewed movie is a complete waste of time, there are actually a lot of individuals who find delight in identifying plot holes and examining all forms of awfulness in a film. If you think that you’re pretty much like that, then hate-watching could be your next favorite pastime. To help you take your first steps into the world of hate-watching, below is a list of the worst movies from 1980 to 2009, as voted by the members of Golden Raspberry Award Foundation ― the organization behind the Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the Razzies.
Can’t Stop the Music (1980)
Directed by Nancy Walker and written by Alan Carr and Bronté Woodard, Can’t Stop the Music was promoted as a biographical film about the disco group Village People. The movie, however, only had a vague resemblance to the actual story of the group’s formation, earning itself not only the Razzie Awards for Worst Picture but also for Worst Screenplay in 1980. Starring the real members of Village People and featuring a brief appearance of Bruce Jenner, the film was called “an absolute trainwreck” by Neil Minow of Yahoo! Movies. Variety criticized the performance of the stars, writing, “The Village People, along with ex-Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner, have a long way to go in the acting stakes.”
