Let’s not waste time here with a lengthy introduction, for I’ve already concluded that Julia Roberts is painfully overrated. Of course, that doesn’t mean we might have some fun recounting her crappiest movies. So let’s do this.
Flatliners: When this movie was released, I enjoyed all of the eye candy, and it’s still a guilty pleasure of mine. But is it crappy? Hell yes.
Full Frontal: This movie might have been the precise point where Steven Soderbergh actually started to lose his magic touch.
Mary Reilly: This one aimed for “subtle” but ended up with “dull” instead. Oh, Malkovich.
Mona Lisa Smile: Perhaps this film meant to be like Dead Poets Society for chicks. Too bad it was so damn annoying.
Ready to Wear: Yes, I watched this movie (on VHS) because I lost a dare. Dammit.
Runaway Bride: This one attempted to capitalize upon the former chemistry of Julia with Richard Gere, but it was merely a money grab.
Sleeping with the Enemy: This so-called thriller was entirely predictable and utterly disappointing.
Eat Pray Love: This movie (along with its literary source material) was such a whiny, self-indulgent piece of crap.
Something to Talk About: This movie tries to combine the concepts of enduring family love and a cheating spouse while intermingle it all with an equestrian competition. Very bizarre and wholly unwatchable.
Stepmom: This was ultimately a very depressing movie that filmmakers sought to “balance” with the (nonexistent) charm of Julia.
Valentine’s Day: Sure, Julia only had a few minutes of screentime, but we can blame the film’s monetary success solely upon her. Unfortunately, this romcom was as clichéd as they come.
