The Razzies Wave A Big ‘Ol Middle Finger In Adam Sandler’s Direction

Like me, I imagine most of you couldn’t care less about the Oscars last night. They lost me the year that “Dances With Wolves” beat “Goodfellas” (and I LIKE “Dances With Wolves, but come on), and the awards ceased to have any relevance in my life. I haven’t seen most of the nominees, and I have little to no interest in almost all of them.

The Razzies, however, is a different story entirely. I know that many of you out there share my tendency to wallow in the filthiest cinematic gutters, and this is an award that truly represents the lowest of the low, the “Worst in Film”. For example, this year Adam Sandler garnered a record-breaking 11 noms for all of the filmic horrors he spewed forth into the world in 2011. That is more than double the number that Eddie Murphy, the previous top dog, received for “Norbit” in 2007.

I legitimately like some of the movies on this list (“Drive Angry” was one of my top three movie going experiences in 2011). I’m curious what you agree with, what you have a beef with, and what movies you all think are the bottom of the barrel from the last year.

I suspect that “Bucky Larson” will walk away with many, many trophies, but in my mind, “Jack & Jill” will forever be thought of as “the movie that made Al Pacino rap”, and that, in my world, is an unforgivable sin.
