The Best and Worst Movies of 2002

Page 2 of 2

Madonna sank with the shipwrecks of 2002, but she wasn't alone.

Britney Spears started us off with the sour notes of Crossroads: not a girl, not yet an actress. Denzel Washington won an Oscar in March, then tarnished it with the clichés of John Q. Eddie Murphy bet on a losing horse with Showtime, then made it a trifecta with Pluto Nash and I Spy. Summer brought the soggy Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Men in Black II and The Sum of All Fears. Scooby-Doo was a steaming pile, except at the box office. Ditto Adam Sandler's Mr. Deeds, which even co-star Winona Ryder couldn't steal. Austin Powers in Goldmember needed Viagra. And for the holidays, we've been saddled with Roberto Benigni in a live-action Pinocchio. Still, the sheer clueless incompetence displayed by Mr. and Mrs. Guy Ritchie in Swept Away will surely go unrivaled for years. If we're very, very lucky.
