'Mortdecai' Might Be 2015's Worst Movie

'Mortdecai' Might Be 2015's Worst Movie

The year is only 23 days old, but it may already have its worst movie. We give you "Mortdecai," the "psychotically unfunny" anti-comedy starring Johnny Depp. Here's a visualization of what its like to sit through the 107-minute film:

Needless to say, critics haven't been kind. "Mortdecai" currently sports a 10-percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a mark that would have placed it among the 10 worst-reviewed movies of 2014. Ahead, the nine most scathing reviews of "Mortdecai."

1. "The badness settled over the audience like nuclear ash." -- David Edelstein, New York

2. "Depp is unbearable." -- Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

3. "[Depp] has done a lot better than this forgettable piece of bargain-basement low art." -- Brian Truitt, USA Today

4. "'Mortdecai' might as well be called 'The Johnny Depp Movie,' because its preening star, wearing an ascot and a walrus mustache that becomes a tiresome running joke, is the whole show. And what a frantically dull spectacle this vanity project is." -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

5. "'Mortdecai' is mortdifying, a mortdal sin of a movie that's headed for the cinematic mortduary." -- Kyle Smith, New York Post

6. "This charmless farce ends up as another black mark on Depp's recent track record of patchy pet projects." -- Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

7. "Johnny Depp has done so much for us. Let us now return the favor and pretend 'Mortdecai,' a disastrously misjudged career low, never existed." -- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

8. "Like the film as a whole, [Depp's] performance is such a spectacular miscalculation that it begins to generate a strange fascination in that you almost want to keep watching just to see how much worse it can possibly get before it finally comes to a merciful and long-overdue conclusion." -- Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com

9. "[A] spectacular mess." -- Jon Lyus, HeyUGuys
