The Worst Movies of February

'Beautiful Creatures,' 'Bullet to the Head' and more get tossed in the scum bucket

"Shut up there a minute, I gotta introduce myself!" When Peter Travers speaks with such cantankerous fervor, it can only mean one thing: It's scum bucket time! Our fearless film critic is back to dig up the absolute dregs to hit the screen this February, from the pointless 3D reissue of Top Gun to the horrendous Beautiful Creatures to the insufferable latest Nicholas Sparks melodrama Safe Haven.

Travers rounds out his list with Bruce Willis' obvious paycheck flick, A Good Day to Die Hard, and Sylvester Stalone's awful but aptly titled Bullet to the Head: "You'll wanna do that exact same thing to yourself, at least with a stun gun, to make yourself and your brain obliterate all memories of this movie." And the worst of the worst of the worst – tragically, the biggest hit of February? Identity Thief, the Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy film that Travers calls a pure piece of crapola.
