What went wrong: terrible movies of 2012

No 'year in review' is complete without addressing the worst of the worst. While Hollywood certainly churned out some bad movies in 2012 more than could possibly fit on this sort of list there's a special kind of bad that needs to be brought to the forefront.

Here are some films (and one category of films) released in the past year that I have deemed worthy of scorn and derision. It's all a matter of taste; there are more 'deserving' films than there are available spaces. Still, I think you'll agree these movies are terrible.

Film attempts to jumpstart Tyler Perry action franchise

There's something admirable about an actor who tries to break out and advance beyond his or her comfort zone. Watching someone trying to become something more comedians attempting dramatic roles, rom-com stalwarts trying action movies can be a lot of fun, and it can help an actor jump a tier or two in the Hollywood hierarchy.

But that's only if it works. If it doesn't work, you get a project that comes off as sadly (or comically) misjudged - a movie that is a transparent attempt to make the leap, yet not good enough to actually result in success. You get a movie where instead of catching hold and hauling himself up, the leaper instead falls to the ground in failure.
