Best of 2004: Diving for Pearls from a Sea of Sorry Films

The Worst of the Worst
Worst Action Movie: “Flight of the Phoenix.” Rappers and acting do not mix. A dud for the talented Dennis Quaid, who fares far better with the upcoming “In Good Company.”
Worst Christmas Movie: “Surviving Christmas.” Ben Affleck should fire his agent.
Worst Cinderella Movie: Too many to count.
Worst Movie About a President’s Daughter: Too many to count. Nah, on second thought, Mandy Moore’s “Chasing Liberty” – because she skinny dips and sleeps around, then acts confused when Christians says she’s no longer a role model for her ‘tween audience.
Worst Sequel: “The Whole Ten Yards.” Silly story, bad dialogue, terrible acting, and lots of sex and language. Welcome to the new PG-13. Runner-Up: “Bridge Jones Diary: The Edge of Reason.” Sex, sex and more sex. Far less inspired than the first one – and hope you like the f-word.
Worst CGI Effects: “Troy.” Not nearly as bad a film as it could have been, with good acting by Peter O’Toole, Brad Pitt and Eric Bana, but still a huge disappointment. And the fakest-looking sets, boats and ships I’ve ever seen.
Worst Movie of the Year?: “Alexander.” Angelina Jolie’s Russian accent meets Colin Farrell’s Flock-of-Seagulls hairdo in a roll-your-eyes production. Do not pass go and return to history class, Mr. Stone. Again.
*Please note that no Ben Stiller films were taken into consideration for this award.
