It sucks to waste your money and your time on bad movies. Of course, your individual enjoyment is subjective, but here are five films in theaters this week that were panned by critics — either our own or reviewers from elsewhere on the internet.
Just Getting Started
The Los Angeles Times says, "Even a cast with this many award wins and nominations can't salvage a script that will have viewers audibly sighing, rather than laughing."
Hollywood Reporter says, "The starry chemistry of leads Ansel Elgort and Chloë Grace Moretz injects a modicum of energy into the coming-of-age drama, whose elements of romance, crime and smart-kid angst never coalesce."

Daddy's Home 2
Alonso Duralde at TheWrap says, "I laughed a total of three times during this witless trudge as it went through its predetermined part-two paces and found myself wishing I was re-watching A Bad Moms Christmas."

The Los Angeles Times calls this holiday sequel "a poorly gift-wrapped Pinterest fail of a movie."
