‘Movie 43’ and ‘After Earth’ Tie For Worst Movies Of The Last Year At 34th Razzie Awards

In what will surely come as a debilitating shock to whoever birthed the high art comedic thesis that was ‘let’s hang a scrotum from Hugh Jackman’s chin’, Movie 43 and Will Smith’s thinly-veiled Scientology advertorial After Earth have swept the pool at the naming and shaming 34th Razzie Awards – an annual celebration of the poor life choices made by those working in and around the film industry.

Worst Picture winner Movie 43 was the recipient of three Razzies, including Worst Director for all thirteen consenting adults involved in its production, including – but not limited to – Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Brett Ratner, and Bob Odenkirk. The Razzie for Worst Screenplay was split between the sketch comedy’s twenty-nine (29) screenwriters.
M. Night Shyamalan’s nepotistic sci-fi romp After Earth earned Smith a deserved Worst Supporting Actor gong, while human leather drop-crotch, son and philosopher Jaden also won Worst Lead Actor. With their powers combined, together they invite down the wrath of Xenu and the Razzie for Worst Screen Combo.

Additional Raspberry awards also went to repeat offender Tyler Perry (Worst Actress [in drag] for A Madea Christmas), Kim Kardashian (Worst Supporting Actress for Tyler Perry’s Temptation), and Gore Verbinkski’s ill-advised Disney adaptation of The Lone Ranger (Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel) despite the noted aesthetic and dramatic prowess of leads Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.
Three-time nominees Lindsay Lohan and Sylvester Stallone, and six-time Razzie winner Adam Sandler all escape unscathed.
