Elizabeth Banks flew under the radar for many years, but now she’s fully come into her own element in Hollywood. Regardless of her recent mainstream success, she remains an underrated actress of the character variety (see The Hunger Games’ Effie Trinket for a very recent example), and she should expect much longevity in that department. Still, the woman has made several crappy movies throughout her career, and here are the top eleven.
Man on a Ledge: Not only was this a B-movie sendup that was evocative of Phone Booth’s relative success, but Banks’ role as a negotiator was entirely miscast and almost laughable.
The Uninvited: Look, I know the current crop of horror remakes collectively stands as an inferior product, but this is ridiculous.
W.: Okay, I’ll admit that I used to find it cute when Oliver Stone got all political with his movies. Now, it’s just a cry for attention.
Meet Dave: In this movie, Eddie Murphy’s tiny thetans become infatuated with Banks’ character. Or something like that.
Fred Claus: Here stands yet another crappy entry into the “Pantomimed Vince Vaughn Christmas oeuvre.”
The Sisters: This movie shit all over an Anton Chekov work, and I don’t take kindly to that nonsense.
Spider-Man 3: Here Banks reprised her thankless role as “Miss Brant,” but that doesn’t excuse the fact that this was the movie about Emo Spidey.
The Baxter: So twee. So hipster. So wannabe Woody Allen.
Daltry Calhoun: Johnny Knoxville can suck it. And so can Quentin Tarantino with his “executive producing” credits.
Swept Away: Honestly, this movie should’ve never been made. Shame on Guy Ritchie and his dick led astray by Madonna.
Wet Hot American Summer: Obviously, this movie is a cult favorite for many of you. Yet it was meant to be crappy, and it achieved said goal.
