Grown-Ups 2 leads the way for the 2014 Razzie awards

3 min read



At the beginning of the year, there’s only one awards show that really matters. We’re not talking about the usual Hollywood circle-jerks known as the Oscars. Oh hell no, we want to celebrate the very worst of 2013. And once again, the Razzies will be leading the way in that particular awards category.

In what should be a move that surprises nobody, Grown Ups 2 is leading the way in Razzie nominations, netting 8 in total. Here’s the full list of nominees for the worst of 2013:

Honestly, for as much flak as what Grown Ups 2 has gotten, it’s nowhere near as bad as Movie 43. That’s going to make for some stiff competition, and another fun evening. Traditionally held a day before the Oscars. That means March 1 for the Razzies, which sometimes sees the actors nominated arrive to fetch their award much like Halle Berry did a couple of years ago for Catwoman. And you know what? That’s a good move. It’s one thing to be ina  bad movie, but to have pride in doing it, creates an endearing feeling from audiences who will actually then support such a film for being so terrible.

Which is why I’m personally hoping that the Grown-Ups 2 cast arrives to accept that award so that we can get Grown-Ups 3: The Re-GrownUppining.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
