The 12 Crappiest Movies of Drew Barrymore’s Career
I understand that some of the movies that made this list will generate at least some degree of strange, nostalgia-bred outrage. So let’s dispense with formalities and do this:
Batman Forever: Don’t try and tell me that this movie wasn’t as bad as Batman & Robin minus the bat nipples.
Poison Ivy: Sure, this was the movie that brought Drew back into Hollywood’s consciousness after her teenaged exile years. That doesn’t change the fact that it was a predictable, soft-core mess.
Charlie’s Angels - Full Throttle: This was just more of the same in regard to the first movie; in this case, that’s not a good thing.
Freddy Got Fingered: Quite frankly, Freddy can stick it up his a**.
Going the Distance: The general premise of being in a long-distance relationship is even more tedious on the big screen. Who knew?
Home Fries: This is a pretty twisted movie that didn’t run well with test audiences, so it got prepackaged as a “quirky” romcom. Big mistake.
Never Been Kissed: Silly, pointless, and full of plot holes. Sure, it was cute. Cute and crappy.
He’s Just Not That Into You: Here’s the token “Do I really have to explain this one?” entry.
Mad Love: The promotional material for this movie presented a loving, whirlwind romance on the road, but then the movie itself took a misguided turn into bipolar madness. How completely disrespectful.
Music and Lyrics: If I’m not mistaken, this movie was intended to be an unofficial sequel to The Wedding Singer. It failed miserably.
Lucky You: A romantic comedy about poker. Or a poker movie about romantic comedy? Either way, it wasn’t very romantic and pissed off a bunch of poker fans as well.
And a little unexpected bonus number for you…
Firestarter: Yes, I too have seen this movie several times over the course of my childhood. That doesn’t excuse the fact that this “horror” movie isn’t scary at all and is, consequently, pretty damn crappy too.
