The idea here is that whenever Dane Cooks beds a woman, the very next day she meets the man she will marry. Poor Dane is so downtrodden when he meets Jessica that he doesn't want to lose her, so he avoids sex with her. The rest writes itself.
If only a writer had written the rest (and a casting director went with someone other than Cook), we'd have a better shot at a decent movie.
No. 2: "The Hottie and the Nottie"
"Paris Hilton is the world's greatest _________." You could fill in that blank with a lot of nouns, but "actress" would not be one of them.
Someone was asleep enough at the switch to think that her name would be a good draw to a movie, so they decided to recruit her for 2008's regrettable "The Hottie and the Nottie." Big mistake.
The movie was about ... um, well, we're proud to say we never saw it, and neither did the rest of the nation.
It was so bad that it averaged about five people per movie screen and was another flick from this list that swept the Razzies.
Advice for Paris: Stick to paparazzi video or anything where you're filmed with a night vision camcorder.
No. 1: "Mr. Wrong"
In recent years, Ellen DeGeneres has become a highly respected talk show host. But a few years ago, she was helming her own sitcoms. Before that, she was a stand-up comedienne.
Oh, and she is gay. We all knew that, and no one really cared. But when she decided to make the 1996 flick "Mr. Wrong" with Bill Pullman and Joan Cusack, we couldn't help but scratch our heads and say, "Why?"
For a romantic comedy (or any movie, for that matter) to work there has to be some plausibility. We have to believe that Superman can fly. We have to believe that a bare-footed Bruce Willis can stop a band of elite international terrorists. We have to believe that Ellen likes men.
Well, "Superman" and "Die Hard" did really well; not so much for Ellen.
