The Worst Movies of 2016

Updated September 9, 2020 12.1k votes 1.2k voters 11.0k views54 items

Action comedies, films based on video games, and melodramatic dramas are all among the worst movies of 2016. The worst movies of 2016 include terribly written sequels and completely original disasters. While you might disagree with where the titles are ranked, there's no denying that these films are pretty bad. This is a list of the worst movies of 2016 featuring everything from Suicide Squad to London Has Fallen to My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

What films will you find on this list of the worst 2016 movies? The comedy Yoga Hosers was widely panned. Director Kevin Smith cast his daughter Harley Quinn Smith in this feature, which follows two teenagers reluctantly battling evil. The parody flick Fifty Shades of Black is also one of the worst movies of the year, and fans loved to hate Adam Sandler's The Do-Over as well. Other 2016 films featured on this roundup include Dog Eat Dog, Neighbors 2, and Dirty Grandpa.

Which of these deserves to be named the very worst movie of 2016? Vote the baddest of the bad up to the top of this list and please add any terrible movies that are missing. If you are looking for more, check out The Worst Movies of 2019 list.
