Readers’ Poll: The 10 Worst Movies of the Last Year

See which films beat ‘Pixels’ and ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2’ to take the prize of the last year’s worst

50 Shades of Grey; Spectre; Fantastic Four; Pixels

The movie adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' didn't live up to many fans of the BDSM book

Focus Features/Photofest

Spotlight was deemed 2015's best film at the Oscars, and thankfully, none of the films we had our readers submit as the year's worst came close to snatching the crown. From flat reboots to eye-roll-inducing sequels to one shocking surprise, here are the worst films of the last year, according to our readers.

‘Vacation’

Vacation was a reboot made with the best intentions, but it wasn't quite as laugh-out-loud funny as the originals from the National Lampoon's Vacation series. For the film, Rusty Griswold (played by Ed Helms, originated by Anthony Michael Hall) takes center stage, taking his family on a road trip vacation just like his dad Clark (Chevy Chase) did throughout his life. Not even cameos from Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth could save the over-the-top, dry film from floundering.

‘Entourage’

Four years after the wildly popular HBO series wrapped, Entourage returned with a big-budget bro fest drowning in cameos and lacking the spark the original series was famous for having. The show's four stars — led by the central movie star Vince Chase and his shark of an agent Ari Gold — are all back and going even bigger as Gold, who's now a studio head, hires Chase to not only star but direct a movie. The latest adventure is filled with the same hijinks as the show's original run, but the jokes don't land as nicely as they did back then.

‘Fantastic Four’

Much like Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man reboot from a few years ago, Fantastic Four's most recent addition to the franchise came too quickly after a previously successful run. Jessica Alba and Chris Evans were at the helm of a successful pair of FF movies, so the new cast — comprised of Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell and Miles Teller — had tough competition. On top of that, the movie itself was empty and humorless compared to the films from a decade ago. It was so purely loathed that our own Peter Travers gave it an astounding zero stars in his harsh review.
