She's won multiple awards, created iconic characters, and been the romantic lead in enough movies to earn her the title of "America's sweetheart." Julia Roberts is easily one of the most famous and adored actors of all time, with memorable performances in films like Pretty Woman, Erin Brockovich, and My Best Friend's Wedding. But when you've starred in as many movies as she has over the course of more than three decades, they're not all bound to be winners. So what are the worst Julia Roberts movies ever made?

We consulted Rotten Tomatoes for a ranked list of every Julia Roberts movie, then looked for each "rotten" (under 60 percent) entry. It's important to note that the site's algorithm ranks movies not only by score but also by the number of reviews and critics surveyed. Regardless, these are the films that the critics panned despite Roberts' considerable star power. You might be surprised to see some of your favorites on the list.
