Worst Direction: Dennis Dugan for Big Daddy - This movie was inanely stupid, not funny. Adam Shandler is worth $20 million a pop for a film? The mind boggles.

Worst Foreign Language Film: Romance- boring and dull sex movie.
Worst Original Song: Satan’s Soliloquy from Southpark: Bigger, Longer and Uncut by Trey Parker and Marc Shaiman - It and the scenes with Saddam Hussain brought the movie to a screeching halt.
Worst Original Screenplay: George Lucas for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - what happen to that so-called talent for writing.

Worst excuse for Science Fiction: The Thirteenth Floor - this is what happens when regular people try to sci-fi. Leave it to the experts OK!

Worst space alien: Jar Jar Binks- Need I say more.
Worst Overrated Independent Film: The Blair Witch Project - hype, hype, hype.

Stupidest film couple: Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones for Entrapment - Isn’t Connery about 95 years old? Why are all these geezers getting young babes.
Stupidest future film couple: Jake Lloyd and Natalie Portman for Star Wars Episode I: the Phantom Menace - The princess is supposed to marry the street-urchin brat and drop a litter for him? The suspension of disbelief in order to watch a movie only goes so far.
Stupidest adaptation of an old television series: The Mod Squad - They are truly running on empty now. What’s next? Three’s Company the Movie?
