My most-hated movie of the year, without question, was Parental Guidance.
To be fair, I didn’t sit through the whole thing. I saw maybe forty minutes in the middle, while waiting for another, far superior, movie. Which movie? It doesn’t matter: they’re all far superior.
I seem to remember a time that Billy Crystal was funny. When Marisa Tomei was allowed to be in a good movie. This is not that time.
The audience laughted at the so-called jokes, and every time that happened, I felt shame for my peers.
I could go on about how bad this movie made me feel, or give specific details about what was wrong, but I feel my brain melting. Avoid.
Some other movies in 2012 that were pretty bad: Taken 2 (Moviegoers 0), Dark Shadows, Trouble With the Curve, The Campaign, and Chernoybl Diaries.
