Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke’s ‘Getaway’ Is Worst Reviewed Film of 2013; ‘After Earth’ and ‘Grown Ups 2’ Also Rank

Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke's 'Getaway' Is Worst Reviewed Film of 2013; 'After Earth' and 'Grown Ups 2' Also Rank

The Week has rounded up the worst reviewed films of 2013, based on Rotten Tomatoes scores. As to be expected, some of these titles were more publicized critical and financial bombs (M. Night Shyamalan’s “After Earth,” starring Jaden and Will Smith, for example), while others barely register in memory (“The Big Wedding” and “Getaway” — huh?). Check out the list, below.

“Getaway,” which takes the cake as the worst reviewed film of the year with a paltry 2% Rotten on the Tomatometer, stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez. They’re probably not too concerned about it — Hawke had a great year with critical darling “Before Midnight” and box office surprise “The Purge,” while Gomez was one of the bikini-clad stars of Harmony Korine’s cult fave “Spring Breakers.” 

Here are the worst reviewed films of 2013, per Rotten Tomatoes:

1. “Getaway” (2% Rotten)

2. “Paranoia” (4% Rotten)

3. “Movie 43” (4% Rotten)

4. “Scary Movie 5” (4% Rotten)

5. “Battle of the Year” (4% Rotten)

6. “The Big Wedding” (7% Rotten)

7. “Grown Ups 2” (7% Rotten)

8. “The Host” (8% Rotten)

9. “A Haunted House” (10% Rotten)

10. “After Earth” (11% Rotten)

And while we’re on the subject of turkeys (or perceived turkeys), TIME unleashed their Worst Ten of 2013 last week. They’re below, in case you missed them. Do you agree with the selections? A couple of us TOH! contributors are actually big fans of Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor” and Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives.”

1. “Grown Ups 2”

2. “Salinger”

3. “The Host”

4. “After Earth”

5. “RIPD”

6. “Only God Forgives”

7. “The Big Wedding”

8. “The Counselor”

9. “Oz the Great and Powerful”

10. “The Hangover Part III”

Hmm, looking at Time's turkey list, I don't see Jack the Giant Slayer, Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, The Mortal Instruments, White House Down, Ender's Game, Paranoia, or Planes.

I see a struggle to maintain the perception that a movie that nearly doubled its production budget (After Earth) is on equal footing as a movie that earned less than half its production budget (RIPD).

White House Down, only has 50%, should be on the worst list as well as the Man of Steel. I'm very disappointed on the Man of Steel. Superman should not kill the main antagonist.
