11 Crappiest Movies of Anne Hathaway’s Career

By Agent Bedhead | Seriously Random Lists | July 25, 2012 | Comments ()

Anne Hathaway has always struck me as one who carefully crafts her Hollywood image to an extreme. Yet regardless of my crappy opinion, she's a pretty competent actress who is currently receiving praise for her role in The Dark Knight Rises. Anne's turned in some good work within Oscar bait such as Rachel Getting Married and Brokeback Mountain as well. Still, she's starred in her fair share of crappy movies, and here are the top eleven of them.

Bride Wars: Screw the idea of marriage -- it's all about that pretty white dress, you know. Such an insult to the female species.

Passengers: This misguided thriller fails to pull off a twist that can only be described as "Shalamayan-esque."

One Day: Watch Hathaway age 20 years through a series of dorky costumes! God, what a depressing ending.

Hoodwinked: At least Hathaway had the decency to step away from the sequel.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement: Sure, the first movie possessed a certain charm, but this sequel was merely Disney filler material.

Alice in Wonderland: Perhaps this was proof that Tim Burton needed to take a long break and recharge his batteries before embarking upon that Dark Shadows nonsense.

Valentine's Day: This movie functions as a shitty romcom blemish upon many an actor's resume.

Get Smart: As a remake of the iconic 1960s comedy, this was a pretty dumb movie.

Becoming Jane: Hathaway was definitely the wrong actress for this job, and the movie itself was too much of a downer for fans of Austen's literature.

Havoc: Rich kids decide to be poor on purpose and arbitrarily join a Latino gang. And that's just the beginning of what is wrong with this flick.

Love and Other Drugs: It was a noble cause -- Hathaway's character struggles with Parkinson's disease but falls into a romcom plot that can't even be redeemed by her naked rack.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Wu-Tang

    Whatever, I like Becoming Jane.

  • Stevie Oh See

    Oh no. I have to disagree with the inclusion of Get Smart, it wasn't so bad. Sure not exactly a stretch in terms of acting ability, but everyone has bills to pay, I guess. =)

  • supaklown

    Must have been tough to only pick 11, she's been in some real stinkers.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Only one passing reference to the Hatha-rack? What, today is opposite day and we're considering her actrissin? Did I miss the memo again?

  • dizzylucy

    Her work in Rachel Getting Married was superb, but holy hell, I hated that movie. HATED. It was so pretentious and I found her family so ridiculous and annoying, I almost couldn't blame her all the drugs.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    She kind of looks like a young Liza Minnelli... so she has that to look forward to.

  • 'Such an insult to the female species'
    Equally applicable to Kate Hudson.

  • I love her so much. She's gorgeous and completely charming.

    And, mark my words: She wins an Oscar in the next five years or I'll eat my hat.

  • Mara

    Nope, Bride Wars is fucking hilarious, although probably not for the reasons intended by the makers of the film.

  • $27019454

    She is rapidly becoming my new Nicole Kidman: That is; hyper-self-aware, affected, creepily pale with a huge head, over-rated by almost everyone, fawned-over needlessly, barely passable at accents (not even that) and completely, annoyingly ubiquitous. Let's just give her a stupid oscar now before she inhabits some unnecessary Baz Luhrman thing. SO over her.

  • TheDeadBurger

    It's weird how polarizing she is; she's one of my favorite people in Hollywood.

  • $27019454

    Oh, and the shaky, adenoidal voice is just the cream on the cake.

  • dsoup

    Hoodwinked is completely re-watchable. Love the songs and voice actors. Not crap at all.

  • Ariel

    This just remineded me that I sat through Love and Other Drugs - which was truly atrocious.

  • John G.

    Love and Other Drugs was awful, awful, awful nonsense. I hated the fuck out of that movie. The story was lame, paint-by-numbers, how to write a script in 10 days crap. The chemistry was non-existent between the leads, and Anne Hathaway seemed to have chosen the role solely for the nudity. There were about ten minutes total in there that dealt with the insanity of pharmaceutical reps that represented a movie I might actually want to see, if they got someone besides Gyllenhaal to play the role.

  • roodle

    why is love and other drugs a guilty (dis)pleasure for me? i can never stop watching when its on :(

  • nosio

    I agree with all of these, except for Get Smart. Get Smart is the Drew Barrymore of movies to me - mediocre, predictable, cringe-worthy cheese - and yet ultimately lovable.

  • Artemis

    You should have just stopped at Bride Wars. There is no movie bad enough to be even indirectly compared to that.
    Who photoshopped Anne Hathaway's face into Julia Roberts on the Becoming Jane poster?
    And while I didn't see it and her accent in the trailer made me want to stab my own eardrums, the poster for One Day is really hot.

  • Jenne Frisby

    Interesting! I was seeing more Audrey Tautou. Whoever that is, it isn't Anne Hathaway.

  • BabyBearStrikesAgain

    I didn't hate Becoming Jane, mostly because James MacAvoy. But I want back the four hours of my life I spent watching One Day and Love and Other Drugs.

  • twig

    Alice in Wonderland - substandard movie.

    Anne Hathaway in Alice in Wonderland? Marvelous. I would have paid for the movie 'the White Queen flounces about in determinedly ignoring reality princess mode while the world goes to hell around her"

  • Jeremy Carrier

    I think 11 good movies might be the harder challenge

  • John G.

    Can you even name 3?

  • $27019454

    I can't. I fucking can not.

  • Colostomy Baggins

    You realize this is a tacit endorsment of Ella Enchanted. BAM! Could have saved time by just making it the 3 good movies of her career.

  • Tinkerville

    I was just about to ask where the hell Ella Enchanted was. Not because these aren't bad movies, but because Ella Enchanted was my all time favorite book growing up and seeing the movie was like watching my childhood getting stabbed and tortured repeatedly. I still have nightmares about it.

  • Jenne Frisby

    Based off of this comment, I just borrowed it from the library and read it today. The movie is definitely crackalicious, but there are some hilarious tropes thrown in, usually in the background. Like Char getting a tiny cut on his arm and having to take off his whole shirt in front of a waterfall to receive medical attention. The book is great though, and I can see why you would be protective of it. I especially liked the way it built Ella and Char's relationship, which was far superior to the movie.

  • Tinkerville

    Wow, you're fast! I'm glad you were inspired to read it. I recognize it's not the greatest children's book of all time, and I was nervous to reread it as an adult as I was afraid it wouldn't hold up. But even now it's lovely and when I was little it was like magic to me. I must have read it at least four times a year. Clever, beautiful, with a great twist on the Cinderella story, and characters that weren't bloated caricatures like they were in the movie. At the very least I hope the movie got some kids to pick up the book and read it.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Havoc was so bad. So bad that her getting naked in it couldn't make me watch the whole thing. Just terrible. AND HOLY SHIT JGL WAS IN THAT TOO!!!!

    I blocked it out but OMG he was totally in it and he was laaaaame!!!
    "that shit is rape son!" omg omg omg why jgl why????

  • kimk

    Yeah, that is on the 10 worst movies list for everyone in it. I watched the whole thing, just amazed that somehow somewhere a bunch of people agreed that this movie was worth making. Even Hathaway's (very nice) boobs and Bijou Phillips getting double teamed by Freddy whathisname from "Can't Hardly Wait" and some other dude could not save it.

  • I just don't understand why she keeps getting cast as English because her accent is atrocious. That said, One Day and Becoming Jane were surprisingly watchable. I might have to give the credit more to her handsome co-stars, though.

  • jmd

    I actually liked Hoodwinked but as an animated film, I didn't really care if Hathaway was in it or not, other than to wonder who was doing the voices.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yeah, it's cute enough. It's not amazing, but it's very cute.

  • the_wakeful

    Hoodwinked was amazing! (When very stoned)

  • $27019454

    Most things are.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Don't forget the Academy Awards she co-hosted with Franco... that was also crappy. She was much better in TDKR. I was really expecting to hate her as "Catwoman" but she did a pretty good job. I was pleasantly surprised.

  • AudioSuede

    See, you baited me with the Brokeback header. I was about to get real testy.

    Carry on.

  • laylaness

    Yup. Samesies.

  • KatSings

    The 2nd Princess Diaries movie has its charm, too! And that charm goes by the name of Chris Pine! Also, it marks the first time Julie Andrews sang on screen since that doctor ruined her. She has been one of my lifelong idols, and watching her in that scene still makes me cry like a little bitch, because I hate that some idiot robbed the world of her voice when she should have had so many more years to share it.

  • KelJo

    Glad I'm not the only one that feels that way, KatSings!! PD2 was on a few months ago, and the only reason I proceeded to watch it in its entirety was because I remembered that Chris Pine was in it. Ditto on Julie Andrews singing...what a massive waste of talent!
