Ben Affleck became a household name when he and co-writer Matt Damon won the Academy Award for their Good Will Hunting screenplay. His career has had its ups and downs since then, but he's earned plenty of acclaim as a leading man and as a director. The ups include helming and starring in the 2012 Best Picture winner Argo. The lows—well, see for yourself: The following list represents the worst Ben Affleck movies of all time, at least according to the critics.

We consulted Rotten Tomatoes for a full ranking of every Ben Affleck movie, then focused on the "rotten" ones (films earning less than 60 percent). Note that because the site's algorithm weights some critics above others, the ranking isn't in exact descending order, but these movies still reflect the worst reviews Affleck has gotten over the course of his career.
