2014 might not have been the best in terms of box office grosses or bums in seats, but there were a lot of really great movies across every genre.
These are not them. These are the fifteen movies that had me wanted my ninety-to-a-hundred-and-forty minutes back. A few did big box office; a few got many terrific reviews; most appalled all who saw them. I doubt any careers were ended by any of them, though some probably should have been.
Without any further ado, follow the jump for my least favorite films of 2014. Enjoy (if that’s the right word)…
Even though I’m not the biggest Cameron Diaz fan around, I had some hope that her latest The Other Woman would be good. I’m not sure what I was basing this opinion on since I don’t know anything about her two co-stars Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. But I like a good comedy, I even like unfunny comedies, but any comedy that resorts to lame bathroom humor loses me.
Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton deserve full marks for going all-in on this tepid riff on The First Wives’ Club. Their commitment provides some hilarious moments – if not quite enough to make the film memorable. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is also solid as the serial cheater.
