42. THE BLACK DAHLIA (2006) – 32%

Starring: Josh Hartnett, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Eckhart, Hilary Swank
Directed By: Brian DePalma

41. THE NANNY DIARIES (2007) – 34%
Critics Consensus: The Nanny Diaries’ miscast lead and unrealistic, one-dimensional characters make this class satire far less effective than it should’ve been.

Directed By: Robert Pulcini, Shari Springer Berman

Directed By: Mike Barker

39. THE ISLAND (2005) – 40%
Critics Consensus: A clone of THX 1183, Coma, and Logan’s Run, The Island is another loud and bombastic Michael Bay movie where explosions and chases matter more than characters, dialogue, or plot.

Directed By: Michael Bay

Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures

38. SCOOP (2006) – 41%

Directed By: Woody Allen

37. HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (2009) – 41%
Critics Consensus: Despite the best efforts of a talented cast, He’s Just Not That Into You devotes too little time to each of its protagonists, thus reducing them to stereotypes.
Starring: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly
Directed By: Ken Kwapis

36. THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL (2008) – 43%
Critics Consensus: Though it features some extravagant and entertaining moments, The Other Boleyn Girl feels more like a soap opera than historical drama.

35. A LOVE SONG FOR BOBBY LONG (2004) – 43%

Starring: John Travolta, Scarlett Johansson, Gabriel Macht, Deborah Kara Unger
Directed By: Shainee Gabel

34. ROUGH NIGHT (2017) – 44%

Directed By: Lucia Aniello

33. GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017) – 44%

Directed By: Éva Gárdos

30. HITCHCOCK (2012) – 60%
