Ever year, we celebrate the best of the best in the film and music industries. Awards ceremonies like the Oscars and the Grammys honor those who excel in their craft, and whose work will be remembered for generations to come. In fact, many probably know the top album or movie of their birth year.
Among the crop of movies released every year, however, there are others that many would like to forget. PrettyFamous, an entertainment data site by Graphiq, found the worst movie released each year. To determine the bottom of the barrel, PrettyFamous searched through its database of movies and found the film with the lowest Smart Rating each year since 1967. The Smart Rating is a score out of 100 that takes into account a movie's IMDb rating, Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer and Audience Score, Gracenote rating, Metacritic Metascore and the inflation-adjusted U.S. box office gross. To account for older movies which have fewer reviews than their modern counterparts, PrettyFamous only included movies from 1967-1971 with more than 2,000 IMDb votes, movies from 1972-1979 with more than 5,000 IMDb votes and movies from 1980-2016 with more than 10,000 IMDb votes.
