Pennsylvania’s favorite “bad” movie is Super Mario Bros., is this your pick too? Or do you agree with the critics that universally hated it?
Here are a few highlights:
- The Emoji Movie (2017), is the newest film on our list. While it did fairly well in box offices (earning over $217 million globally) it has some of the worst reviews and won 4 Razzie Awards.
- Batman & Robin (North Carolina’s favorite terrible film) presents an all-star cast, including George Clooney, Uma Thurman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Alicia Silverstone, but only got a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
- North Dakota has no NBA team—residents are getting their fill of basketball with Shaq in Kazaam. Looks like his skill on the court didn’t translate to the silver screen.
- In a 2011 interview, the late Bob Hoskins (Mario) was asked three questions: “What is the worst job you’ve done?”, “What has been your biggest disappointment?”, and “If you could edit your past, what would you change?” His answer to all three was Super Mario Bros. (A favorite in 5 states)
To figure out each state’s favorite film, the team compiled a list of the most popular, lowest-scoring movies of all time using data from Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, and the Razzie Awards. Then, they analyzed the Google Trends data for each movie to determine which guilty pleasure is most popular in each state.
