With all the hype surrounding the Awards season, it’s easy to forget that there has been a slew of awful films that were released over 2017. One that got a lot of the critic’s hate was the Baywatch film starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The summer movie which also co-starred Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra, was seen as a pointless reboot of the late 90’s franchise; as mentioned critics completely panned the film, which led Dwayne Johnson to rant about how critics had got Baywatch wrong, and that fans, in fact, loved the film!
It turns out that he may have been onto something when he said that. Baywatch recently was awarded a Razzie in its own, new category called “So Rotten You Loved It,” and the film beat out the likes of the Mummy, The Emoji Movie, and Fifty Shades Darker to the top spot.
Graciously ‘The Rock’ accepted the award, thanking both the fans and critics in his “acceptance speech” which he posted on Instagram. He even went so far as to describe the category of his film as “the shit sandwich you have been eating is so bad that you eventually started to like it.
Other winners on the night included The Emoji Movie (Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst screen combo and Worst screenplay), The Mummy (worst actor), Daddy’s Home 2 (worst supporting actor) and Fifty Shades Darker (Worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel).
