"Premonition" Makes RT's "Worst of the Worst"

by | March 16, 2007 | Comments

We all know good movies are hard to make, so you kinda feel bad when so many fail their lofty goals. Such is the case with this week’s "Premonition," which not only scored an 8 percent Tomatometer — it elbowed its way into our 100 Worst Movies of All Time.

The makers of Sandra Bullock’s latest thriller "Premonition" may have thought they were escaping special recognition by releasing it after Rotten Tomatoes’ Worst of the Worst list came out. Thanks to "Premonition’s" outright rankness (a solid 8 percent on the Tomatometer), we’ve welcomed it into that hallowed list, where it’s taking over the 82nd spot.

Critics generally felt sympathy for America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock, whose earnest acting attempts drew most of the film’s only positive criticism.

But a too-convoluted plot, short-shrifted characters, surprise revelations and a twisty logic that doesn’t seem quite right even when it’s all explained gave most reviewers (88 out of 96) the heebie-jeebies.

With comments like "bring on those Razzie nominations" (Reel.com’s Pam Grady), and "it’s a dour ‘Groundhog Day‘ for desperate housewives" (Newsday’s Gene Seymour), "Premonition" has earned its spot in cinematic immortality.

Also making the updated Worst of the Worst list are the Heath Ledger Vatican thriller "The Order," and "Urban Legend: Final Cut," taking over the 70th and 90th spots, respectively. Dropping out of the list are "A Night at the Roxbury," the 2001 horror flick "Valentine," and (*sigh*) "From Justin to Kelly."
