A list of the worst directing hacks ever. Through a combination of luck and possibly some kind of payola, these directors have managed to have long, lucrative careers making films, even though they seem to lack any kind of discernible talent. Some of the more notable films from directors on this list include "Rush Hour 2," "Batman and Robin," "Con Air," "House of the Dead," "Simon Birch," "Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace" and... you know what, I can't even really continue, I think I just made myself nauseated.

If your least favorite director (or director you love to hate) isn't yet on the list, feel free to add them at the bottom of the page. And don't forget to vote!
