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.

Father knows worst That's My Boy'

Sandler's first foray into R-rated comedy falls flat

It has become common in critical circles to look down on the works of Adam Sandler. Sandler's man-child antics have lost their luster for film critics around the world; those who watch movies for a living have grown tired of Sandler's never-changing shtick. And with good reason with very rare exception, the films that Sandler and his Happy Madison production company have produced have been getting steadily worse over the past decade-plus.

But hey millions of people go out and shell out their hard-earned dollars to see this junk, so what do the critics know?

Sandler's latest offering is 'That's My Boy,' yet another example of Sandler taking a promising comedic concept and hammering into the ground under wave after wave of repetitive idiocy and poorly-acted cameos from Sandler's buddies.
