DONALD CLARKE’S TOP 10 TURKEYS OF 2009
1. The Boat that Rocked
The boat that sucked, more like. Misogynistic, miscast, overlong, repetitive: there was no reason for Richard Curtis’s study of pirate radio to be so ghastly.
2. The Ugly Truth
Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler set back gender politics a decade or so. We could have created this list
from US romantic comedies alone.
3. Bride Wars
And another one.
4. Couples Retreat
Jennifer Lynch shames her father – David – with a deranged pseudo-existential thriller. Oh well. At least it’s not another crummy rom-com.
