18%53%

#54

The Mummy (2017)
15%35%

#54

Directed By: Alex Kurtzman

#53

The House (2017)

#52

Wish Upon (2017)
19%30%

#52

#51

Baywatch (2017)
17%62%

#51
Adjusted Score: 33803%
Critics Consensus: Baywatch takes its source material's jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original's campy charm -- and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows.

Directed By: Seth Gordon

#50

#48

The Book of Henry (2017)
22%63%

#48
Adjusted Score: 31604%
Critics Consensus: The Book of Henry deserves a few points for ambition, but its tonal juggling act -- and a deeply maudlin twist -- may leave viewers gaping in disbelief rather than choking back tears.

Directed By: Colin Trevorrow

#47
Adjusted Score: 50191%
Critics Consensus: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place.

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

#46

#45

Snatched (2017)
36%29%

#45
Adjusted Score: 50634%

Directed By: Jonathan Levine

#44

Kidnap (2017)
35%50%

#44
Adjusted Score: 40803%
Critics Consensus: Kidnap strays into poorly scripted exploitation too often to take advantage of its pulpy premise -- or the still-impressive talents of its committed star.
