The Least Successful Movies of 2019 June 27, 2019Leave a comment

Movies come in many degrees of quality. With no many to see, you don't wanna waste time with the bad ones, do you? Luckily, we're here to tell you what the worst-reviewed and overall least successful new movies are. Skip the movies, but not this list...

'Escape Room'

Sony: David Bloomer

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 49%

This psychological thriller locks six strangers in several controlled environments where they must make horrible choices to escape. Although some of the dangers were suspenseful, the plot itself is so idiotic, it doesn’t really warrant the need for a sequel. Plus, the premise has been exhausted by other films that are was too similar like "Saw" and "Final Destination".

'The Prodigy'

YouTube: Orion Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 43%

The nicest thing about this film is that “Orange is the New Black” star Taylor Schilling is in it. The movie itself is just another attempt at scaring audiences by introducing an evil child. The story is weak and the directing was bad. Seriously, Schilling deserves more than sleep-inducing storylines and cheap jump scares.


Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 42%

The buddy-cop narrative is a classic, which must be why they keep repeating it year after year. In this modern take on the fraying genre, the ass-kicking cop (Dave Bautista) partners up with a hapless Uber driver (Kumail Nanjiani) named Stu. (Get it?) Just because it's about Uber this time doesn't mean you haven't seen this lame action comedy before.

'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'

Warner Bros

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 41%

The Monarch Agency must contend with a myriad of monsters that include Godzilla and the three-headed King Ghidorah. But while the effects are pretty decent, (all things considered) they don’t make up for the bad storyline. All the action and chaos wasn't enough to keep most critics on RottenTomatoes stimulated or entertained.

'The Upside'

The Weinstein Company

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 40%

The film gives audiences a look into the relationship between a rich quadriplegic man and an unemployed man with a shady past who got hired to help him out. But the whole plot is nothing but a cliché. The characters learn from each other and become better people in the end, which made people wonder if they were stuck watching a 90s film. Hasn't this storyline been played out enough?



Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 38%

M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film brings Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, and Samuel L. Jackson together. But there’s virtually nothing to fool us into feeling satisfied at the end of the film. And that’s no way to end this trilogy. If you watch this film, you won't help but feel like it deserves a do-over.


STX Films

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 35%

Poms is about a group of women in their retirement community who form a cheerleading squad, which sounds like a pretty cool concept but the inserted cliched comedy is sort of silly and offensive to the geriatric community. The only thing we're obsessing about is the phenomenal cast which includes Rhea Perlman, Jacki Weaver, Diane Keaton, and Pam Grier.

'Wonder Park'

Paramount Animation Nickelodeon Movies

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 34%

If you need to keep your kids busy for almost two hours, then this movie will do the trick. The film is about a girl whose imaginative creations come to life. But the plot is so melancholic and upsetting that kids will be left in a state of confusion and might even doze off a bit, as critics claim it's as uneventful as it can get. Well, there's a reason why we haven't heard anyone raving about it, right?

'Being Frank'

The Film Arcade

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 33%

JIM GAFFIGAN: "Hey, everybody, be sure to see my new movie, 'Being Frank.' I play a bigamist with two wives."

JIM GAFFIGAN'S INNER VOICE: "That was the worst movie I've ever seen! I paid $17 to see that movie. What a rip-off. The main character was so pale. He was good in 'Capote' but not in this!"

'The Intruder'

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 33%

A young couple buys a dream home in the Napa Valley but can’t shake the seller who continues to stalk them. It sounds like a great thriller but the plot is so laughable that it practically denies the audience any chance of feeling scared.


YouTube: Warner Bros Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 31%

John Shaft Jr. enlists the help of his family to uncover the shocking truth behind the loss of his friend. The problem is that the characters are outdated and uninteresting, which makes the film nauseatingly bad. Critics claim the movie is so bad, it might ruin your childhood. Are you going to risk it nonetheless?

'The Curse of La Llorona'

Warner Bros

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 30%

The film is based on the ghost called La Llorona that stalks kids at night and drowns them. While the jump-scare tactics were kind of okay, the film was dated in 1970s Los Angeles and the storyline was blah at best. Some believe no one will remember this flick months from now, and we're willing to bet they're not wrong.


STX Entertainment

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 27%

Much like all those popular movies about talking Legos, "UglyDolls" is a 90-minute toy commercial posing as a feature film. Unlike the Lego movies, critics hated "UglyDolls." I guess if you're going to make a cynical cash grab of a movie, you should at least try to make it good. "UglyDolls" isn't.


Summit Entertainment

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 26%

Luc Besson is the celebrated filmmaker behind "La Femme Nikita" (1990), "Leon: The Professional" (1993) and "The Fifth Element" (1997). But with "Anna," critics have accused Besson of spinning his wheels. Peter Debruge of Variety wrote, "Besson is the same filmmaker now that he was 20 years ago ... he's been telling roughly the same story over and over all this time."

'Dark Phoenix'

Marvel 20th: Doane Gregory

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 23%

Jean Grey gets taken over by an alien force that overloads her dark side. We knew the main characters weren’t in any kind of danger because it’s a prequel of the first three “X-Men” films. So while Jean and Mystique die, we know they’re alive in the future. Besides the uneventful plot, reviewers have said this was just a total yawnfest.

'Men in Black International'

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 22%

The only good thing about this movie was Chris Hemsworth protecting the Earth from alien invaders. There was no spark in the script or direction of the film and you won’t need neuralizer to forget about the ultra-dry film. Sadly, it's nothing more than an uninspired "Men in Black" reboot.

'Miss Bala'

Sony And Columbia

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 22%

The film is about cross-border crime and a tough woman named Gloria who uses her cunning to survive a tense ordeal. It’s a remake of a Mexican film, but Hollywood’s version is as uninspiring, corny and generic as they come.

'The Kitchen'

Warner Bros. Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 21%

Isn't it nice when critics and audiences agree? Reviewers dunked on this movie, a serious crime drama starring comedians Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish. Audiences stayed away in droves. It made only $5.5M during its first weekend, opening in fifth place at the box office. Ouch.


Aviron Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 20%

Not to be confused with the sci-fi movie with the same name, this film stars Matthew McConaughey as a fishing boat captain facing his past and discovering that nothing is what it appears to be. The twist is kind of interesting but the way the story unraveled left audiences unsatisfied and exasperated, as the movie becomes really ridiculous after its big reveal.


Aviron Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 18%

This romantic drama is about a teenage girl who falls for the handsome boy with a dark secret... or whatever. Critics dunked on it for being not only cliched, but also slow and boring. Teen girls who are fans of the popular book on which the movie is based probably won't care, though.


Mark Rogers

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 17%

The third “Hellboy” film had no Guillermo del Toro or Ron Perlman. But what really put a nail in the coffin is the fact that this film is badly miscast. It's also poorly written and the relentless, unforgiving pace made the film truly unwatchable. Clearly, this is just another reboot where execs were looking to squeeze the last few pennies off the franchise.

'The Haunting of Sharon Tate'

Saban Films

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 15%

The film exploits the horrifying real-life case of actress Sharon Tate, who met an untimely end at the hands of Charles Manson’s cult followers. But bad acting and offensive creative liberties didn’t help the film one bit as it got a mere 15% score on RottenTomatoes.

'The Hustle'

Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 14%

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway play two scam artists but a lot of fans of the original film felt a little scammed themselves because the good lines or gags from the original film had either been replaced or removed from this remake.

'A Madea Family Funeral'

Chip Bergman

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 12%

Madea was good when it first came out, but Tyler Perry milked countless sequels and this one, which is actually the 11th and final one in Perry's saga, was the most boring of them all. The character was recycling the same amateurish jokes which convinced audiences that there was simply no other place for Perry to put the franchise but six feet under.

'The Professor'

Saban Films

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 10%

In this comedy, which rates a bottom-of-the-barrel 10% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer, Johnny Depp plays a college professor who, when he learns he has only months to live, becomes a rebellious party animal, and can you even imagine more transparent wish fulfillment for middle-aged men whose glory days are way behind them?


Francisco Collazo Replicas Holding

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 10%

Keanu Reeves plays a scientist who clones his dead family after a tragic car accident and transfers the consciousness from their corpses into their new bodies. But the film is full of gaping plot holes. Critics claim it's also extremely untidy, boring and disorganized. Sorry, Keanu! We still love you nonetheless.
