1. Batman & Robin

If there’s anybody watching this that, let’s say, loved Batman Forever and went into Batman & Robin with great anticipation, if I disappointed them in any way, then I really want to apologize because it wasn’t my intention. My intention was just to entertain them. - Director Joel Schumacher

George Clooney starts to talk about Batman around the 1:34 mark:

2. Battlefield Earth

Now, looking back at the movie with fresh eyes, I can’t help but be strangely proud of it. Because out of all the sucky movies, mine is the suckiest.

In the end, did Scientology get me laid? What do you think? No way do you get any action by boldly going up to a woman and proclaiming, “I wrote Battlefield Earth!”

If anything, I’m trying to figure out a way to bottle it and use it as birth control. I’ll make a mint! - Writer J.D. Shapiro

3. Brown Bunny

It is a disaster and a waste of time…I accept what the critics say. If no one wants to see it, they are right. I apologize to the financiers of the film, but I must assure you it was never my intention to make a pretentious film, a self-indulgent film, a useless film, an unengaging film. - Actor and Director Vincent Gallo

4. Your Highness

Your Highness? That movie sucks. You can’t get around that. - Actor James Franco

5. Jonah Hex

I think it deserved that bashing for reasons that those critics will never know. We were almost ready to drop [the film] when this kid [director Jimmy Hayward] came up. He was an interesting young guy full of energy and he was obsessed with Jonah Hex. I thought, ‘This is either a really bad decision or a brilliant decision.’ [It was] really bad… If I’m ever really rich, I’ll do that movie again. Seriously. - Actor Josh Brolin

6. The Happening

We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie and it was a bad movie that I did. [Amy Adams] dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to … I don’t want to tell you what movie … alright The Happening. Fuck it. It is what it is. Fucking trees, man. The plants. Fuck it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook. - Actor Mark Wahlberg

7. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

The worst film I’ve ever made by far… maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen… a flatworm could write a better script then Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. In some countries - China, I believe - running Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot once a week on government television has lowered the birth rate to zero. If they ran it twice a week, I believe in twenty years China would be extinct. - Actor Sylvester Stallone

8. Passion Play

Terrible. Another terrible movie. But, you know, in your career and all the movies you make, you’re going to make dozens of terrible ones. - Actor Mickey Rourke

9. Garfield

So they went off and shot the movie, and I forgot all about it. Finally, I went out to L.A. to record my lines. And usually when you’re looping a movie, if it takes two days, that’s a lot. I don’t know if I should even tell this story, because it’s kind of mean. What the hell? It’s interesting. So I worked all day and kept going, “That’s the line? Well, I can’t say that.” And you sit there and go, What can I say that will make this funny? And make it make sense? And I worked. I was exhausted, soaked with sweat, and the lines got worse and worse. And I said, “Okay, you better show me the whole rest of the movie, so we can see what we’re dealing with.” So I sat down and watched the whole thing, and I kept saying, “Who the hell cut this thing? Who did this? What the fuck was Coen thinking?” And then they explained it to me: It wasn’t written by that Joel Coen. - Actor Bill Murray

10. Miami Vice

Miami Vice? I didn’t like it so much. I understood that we were trying to paint a relationship with Tubbs and Crockett that was so grounded and familiar that there was no need for them to incessantly talk to each other - or look at each other - over two and a half hours. - Actor Colin Farrell

11. Grease 2

I hated that film with a vengeance and could not believe how bad it was. At the time, was young and didn’t know better… I hear it’s a cult movie now. - Actress Michelle Pfeiffer

12. From Justin To Kelly

I knew when I read the script it was going to be real, real bad, but when I won, I signed that piece of paper, and I could not get out of it. - Singer and “Actress” Kelly Clarkson

13. Leap Year

It’s turgid. I just know that there are a lot of people who will say it is the worst film of 2010.

(The location) was the main reason I took it - so that I could come home at the weekends. It wasn’t because of the script, trust me. I was told it was going to be like The Quiet Man with a Vaughan Williams soundtrack, but in the end it turned out to have pop music all over it. Do I feel I let myself down? No. Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid.

Because of the way my repartee comes out, people tend to think that I don’t care. Actually, it’s often just a result of my being in a situation where I’m embarrassed about having to talk about a film which I don’t think is that brilliant - but obviously I can’t say that. I do think that it’s important that one should be able to speak out without worrying about causing offence, or whatever. And it saddens me that the romanticism has been ripped out of being an actor. It wasn’t like that in Peter O’Toole’s time, was it? - Actor Matthew Goode
