Did you see "A Thousand Words"? Not many people did. Eddie Murphy's past three movies generated only $2.30 at the box office for every dollar of his salary, making him the most overpaid actor in Hollywood last year, according to a Forbes survey (via Statista).
Katherine Heigl came in second, bringing in only $3.40 for every dollar of her pay. Her latest crime thriller, "One For the Money," made back less than its $40-million budget at the box office worldwide.
Better luck next time? Heigl stars alongside Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton and Amanda Seyfried in the big-screen romantic comedy "The Big Wedding," in theaters later this month. Next up for Murphy: reprising his role in the 1984 classic film "Beverly Hills Cop" for a TV version.

Warning: Calling the following piece an "Idiot's Guide" is a bit of a misnomer. You may or may not be aware of what happens in the "Scary Movie" movies, but there's no way you will emerge from reading this a smarter person overall. I just watched all four "Scary Movie" movies consecutively and my brain is currently curled up in a ball shivering in a far corner of my skull, asking what it did to deserve that.
That said, it is true that you will know more about the "Scary Movie" franchise — a Lot more — after having read this piece. We here at NextMovie would hate to see you go into "Scary Movie 5" without having a lick of knowledge about the first four movies. Imagine the embarrassment in front of your friends!

The disillusioned woman decides to embark on a road trip with her stubborn, hard-drinking grandmother (Sarandon).
Janney will take on the role of Tammy's mother.
Melissa McCarthy and co-writer/co-director/co-marriage person Ben Falcone might not have scored their dream casting core of Shirley MacLaine for road-trip comedy Tammy. But they’re gathering a perfectly great ensemble as it is, with Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass already aboard alongside McCarthy. Allison Janney is now in talks to join them.Falcone and McCarthy are looking to kick off directing next month, working from their script. The plot finds McCarthy as a woman who loses her job and discovers her husband has been having an affair on the same day. Seeking a little solace from her troubles, she hits the road with her hard-drinking, foul-mouthed grandmother (Sarandon, according to Variety’s report, though earlier stories have had her listed as a lesbian pal of the grandma). Along the way our heroine meets and hangs out with a weird guy (Duplass).Janney, last seen in Liberal Arts and A Thousand Words, »
With eleven nominations under its belt, there was little doubt that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was going to be in for a rough ride last night as the Magicopolis theater in Santa Monica, California played host to the 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards - a.k.a. The Razzies - which celebrates that absolute worst in cinematic achievement from the past twelve months.
The final instalment of The Twilight Saga received seven awards in total: Worst Picture, Worst Director (Bill Condon), Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart, shared with Snow White and the Huntsman), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple (Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner). Perhaps the Razzies took the opportunity to 'honour' the Twilight franchise as a whole, much like the Academy Awards did with The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King back in 2004?

The Golden Raspberry Awards used to be an antidote to the Hollywood awards season. Now? They're part of the problem...
It's traditional that on the eve of the Oscars, the annual Golden Raspberry Awards take place. These have been going for a long time now, and the theory behind them is sound. If you're going to have awards ceremony after awards ceremony praising movies to the hilt, shouldn't you have one that highlights the dross that Hollywood has to offer too? In the words of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's website, the awards are designed to "prick the movie industry's pomp".
In principal, who's not on board with that? There's hardly a shortage of pomp to prick, and those movies you sit through where you get the sense that nobody cares should be named and shamed.
To get an idea of what's generally bad amongst 2012's releases, »
Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2012. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" had eleven nominations (twice in one category) and ended up winning seven, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress for Kristen Stewart and Worst Director for Bill Condon. Last year Adam Sandler's "Jack and Jill" won all the awards. But this year, his "That's My Boy" movie won only two, for Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 * Battleship * Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure * That's My Boy! * A Thousand Words Worst Actress: * Kristen Stewart - Snow White and The Huntsman, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 * Katherine Heigl - One For The Money »
In contrast with the Oscars, as we head towards the end of the awards season this year, the Razzies celebrate what they (in many cases, unfairly) deem to be the year’s worst contributions in the film industry.
Recent years have had the tendency to focus on a select few films and/or filmmakers/actors, and then nominate them across the board. Last year, it was Adam Sandler. This year, it was The Twilight Saga.
Whilst a lot of people (critics as well as audiences) felt that the franchise’s final instalment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, was a series-best, and a great finale to the series, the Razzies went ahead and gave the nominations you’d expect, nominating the film and its team across the board.
I remain unable to get behind the spirit of the Razzies, especially when they seem to focus on the easy targets, regardless »

This year saw yet another Razzie sweep, but this one was incomplete: Although The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 went into the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards race with a near-record 11 nominations (more nods than there were categories) it only managed to "win" seven spray-painted statuettes, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy) and Worst Screen Ensemble. Throw in Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon, and the fifth and final Twilight film is 2012's most-Razzed movie. But Twilight S.B.D. #2 (as Razzie wags prefer to refer to it) still fell short of last year's unprecedented all-ten-category sweep by Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill. Sandler wasn't totally over-looked, though: The aging, schlubby comic took the Worst Actor Razzie for the second year in a row, and his film That's My Boy »
While the 85th Academy Awards will honor the very best of what 2012 had to offer in film tonight, the opposite end of the spectrum (supposedly) has been singled out this morning. The Razzie Awards named The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 the Worst Picture of 2012, handing the film a total of seven awards including Worst Director for Bill Condon, Worst Screen Couple for Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy, and Worst Actress for Kristen Stewart (she shared this award with her work in Snow White and the Huntsman). Though I’m not the biggest fan of the franchise, if you think Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was the worst film of 2012 then you need to see more movies; the pic almost kind of works because of Condon’s direction, not in spite of it, and the final battle scene is legitimately entertaining. Elsewhere at the Razzies, Adam Sandler was named Worst Actor for »

The 11th Annual Razzie Awards took place yesterday, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II swept the awards with seven wins including Worst Picture, Bill Condon got Worst Director, Kristen Stewart landed Worst Actress, and Taylor Lautner took home Worst Supporting Actor. Adam Sandler took home the Worst Actor award for That's My Boy. I won't argue with any of these wins, the movies that took home these worst of the year awards definitely deserved it.

Just half a mile up the road from where the 85th Academy Awards will be held, the 33rd Golden Rasperry Awards were handed out. The Razzies have been taking place since 1980, billing themselves as an antidote to Hollywood's glitz and glam award season.
Taking home 60% of the prizes for the night, there aren't many categories "The Twilight Saga: Braking Dawn - Part 2" didn't nab, but apparently Rihanna's supporting turn in "Battleship" was enough to sway Golden Raspberry voters' away from their hatred of the film. As Kristen Stewart takes the stage down the street to present an Oscar, will anyone be snickering about her Worst Actress prize? Or might they have been snickering anyway?
Nominees and winners for The Razzies are decided by email ballot in nine of 10 categories. The tenth category, Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel, is decided by a poll at the film review website, Rotten Tomatoes. »
‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,’ along with stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson lead the pack with a whopping 7 ‘wins’ at the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards. Do You think they deserved the diss?
Breaking Dawn Part 2 got slammed at the Razzies on Feb. 23, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for Hollywood’s lousiest movies on the eve of the Oscars.
The final installment of the Twilight saga managed to take home 7 “wins” including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy) and Worst Screen Ensemble, which included Robert Pattinson.
The film also picked up Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon, making the fifth and final Twilight film 2012′s most-RAZZed movie.
But fret not! Breaking Dawn Part 2 may have taken home the most awards this year, but they didn’t do as bad »

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 won big at the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards, taking home seven awards from 11 nominations, including Worst Picture 2012. Handed out on the eve of the Oscars as an antidote to the biggest award ceremony in film, the Razzies lambasts the year’s worst movies.

Los Angeles — The "Twilight" team finally has earned some love – or loathing – from Team Razzies.
"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" was picked as last year's worst picture Saturday by the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for Hollywood's lousiest movies on the eve of the Oscars.
The finale to the blockbuster supernatural romance dominated the Razzies with seven awards, including worst actress for Kristen Stewart, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, director for Bill Condon and worst screen couple for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.
Adam Sandler was named worst actor for the raunchy comedy "That's My Boy," his second-straight win after 2011's "Jack and Jill," which swept all 10 Razzie categories a year ago. Pop singer Rihanna won worst supporting actress for the action dud "Battleship."
"Twilight" movies had been well represented in Razzie nominations over the years but had not won any key awards there. »

All around Hollywood, the movie industry’s best and brightest are preparing for the year’s biggest awards bonanza — a starry, starry night of designer dresses, well-deserved wins, and touching acceptance speeches.
But as exciting as the Independent Spirit Awards may be, they can’t hold a candle to the Golden Raspberry Awards. Since 1980, this off-brand ceremony has rewarded the best in bad film, giving cinematic trainwrecks like Mommie Dearest, Howard the Duck, Showgirls, and Battlefield Earth the dishonor they deserve. The films in contention this year may not be quite as terrible as those that have won in years »

This weekend, an annual event will spotlight the worst in cinema from last year. No, I'm not being super cynical about the Oscars. The 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies) are also being held, and it should be a bittersweet affair given that it's the last time its voters get to nominate a Twilight movie for anything. Well, until they the series is rebooted or the year 2020, when they can include the whole Twilight Saga in the Worst of the Decade categories, whichever comes first. Contending for Worst Picture this year are The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2, Battleship, That's My Boy, A Thousand Words and The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. The last of these is part of a problem we could have with the Razzies, because obviously it...
