It is hard to narrow the worst films of 2011 to just five picks since there were a lot of bombs released that year. It was the year of Sucker Punch, Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood, Zookeeper and Breaking Dawn. Sure, the Twilight movies have their rabid teenage fan base and they make a lot of people very, very wealthy, but that does not mean they’re not awful movies, right? We can all agree — they are pretty bad.
Still, even with all these duds in the mix, there are five that truly stand out as the worst of 2011. Never mind all the films from that year that were never released or seen by more than the filmmaker’s immediate family. Making movies is a tough thing to pull off, and making good movies is a real crapshoot. So, let’s hope these filmmakers get the chance to redeem themselves. They need to.
