Last week, we brought you the top 10 most anticipated films of the summer and now it’s time to do the opposite. We’re counting down the crappiest movies of the season and no one is spared. Jennifer Aniston’s not safe from our wrath, Katherine Heigl definitely doesn’t get a free pass, and MacGruber…is f*cking MacGruber!! These films are some of the most unexpected, unwanted, and most importantly unnecessary films of the summer and it’s time to put them and their stars on notice…

10. The Switch

Over the past few years Jennifer Aniston’s films have been on rom-com repeat. In her latest flick, The Switch she uses the age old body swapping format with Patrick Wilson and Jason Bateman’s ‘man-juice’ then throws in the whole “I’m secretly in love with my best friend gimmick.” How many times have we seen this storyline?

9. Marmaduke

We’re all down for nostalgia but who thought a live action version of Marmaduke was a good idea? Most importantly who thought he should sound like a stoned surfer courtesy of Owen Wilson? The CGI for this film looks horrible and how dare they resort Kiefer Sutherland to playing a common household pet! He’s saved this country too many times to be subjected to this.

8. Jonah Hex

This may be a shock to you but Jonah Hex is still coming out next month despite Warner Bros’ nonexistent marketing for it. It’s being treated like the red-haired stepchild of the studio. The first trailer for the film was released last month and from what we’ve seen it doesn’t look that impressive.

7. MacGruber

What year is it? Are we in the 1990′s when SNL-based movies were all the rage? Why the hell did they decide to take their MacGruber sketch to the big screen? It’s a good 15 years too late. If that wasn’t dumb enough, they also cast Ryan Phillippe, who’s obviously allergic to comedic timing in a supporting role. The horror!

6. Dinner for Schmucks

Dinner for Schmucks is an remake of a funny French film that got sh*tted on so we could see Steve Carell and Paul Rudd together again. We love these guys but the trailer for the movie is beyond corny and it doesn’t look the least bit entertaining. All they did was take a group of comedic actors, drop them in a film and say, “Hey, we hope this works!” Guess what? IT DOESN’T!

5. Killers

Haven’t we already seen this sh*t?! Katherine Heigl is Jennifer Aniston’s apprentice when it comes to remaking the same movie over and over again. This time she brought Ashton Kutcher as her partner in crime for the action comedy Killers, which looks like Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz’s Knight and Day but with less talent.

4. Letters to Juliet

Someone recently asked us when Letters to Juliet would be airing on the Lifetime cable network and they were dead serious. They didn’t know it was a theatrical release and we can see why. The film’s emotional, formulaic, and marketed towards single women who are adamant viewers of “Army Wives.”

3. Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

When did Cats and Dogs 2 go into production? We weren’t even aware that a sequel had been greenlit. Perhaps the marketing for the film will step up as we get closer to its release date but as of now it’s not even a blip on our radar. This is the second talking animal film we’ve put on this list, when we’ll they learn? We don’t like them. They’re creepy.

Chance of Enjoyment: 5/10

Release Date: July 30, 2010

Total Score: 21/30

2. Takers

Takers stars Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, Tip “Ti” Harris, and Chris Brown also known as surfer boy, wooden boy, southern boy, and the boy who always sounds like he has gum in his mouth. The producers got the worst actors in the world in the same place at the same time. When their bad performances combine on screen we’re pretty sure the earth will explode.

1. Piranha 3-D

Piranha 3D doesn’t take itself too seriously, which could be a blessing or a curse depending on how you look at it. Remember how much internet buzz Snakes on a Plane got before it was released and it became one of the biggest bombs of 2006? Piranha may be an online phenomenon but everyone’s not down with that 2 dollar CGI that looks like it came from a SyFy original movie.

What movie do you think should have made the list? What movie should be removed?
