The Worst Movie Remake of All Time, According to Critics

·2 min read

There have been some great remakes over the years, but there have also been plenty of cinematic disasters that made us wish they'd just let the original be. While some reboots sharply engage with the source material, delivering something distinctive and worthwhile, the bad ones are easily dismissed as a total waste of time. But there's bad, and then there's unforgivably awful. So, what are the worst movie remakes ever made?

We consulted Rotten Tomatoes for their list of the lowest-rated movie remakes, all of which earned under 10 percent approval ratings. This list includes a few remakes you probably saw and wish you could forget, as well as a few you probably didn't even hear about. And yes, there are even some 0-percent films on the list, meaning they didn't get a single positive review. Read on to find out which remake was the most reviled among critics, and for reboots that tanked at the box office, check out these 18 Movie Remakes That Totally Flopped.
