20 Worst Films of 2012: 'Battleship,' 'Total Recall,' 'Tyler Perry's Good Deeds'
19. 'This Must Be the Place'
Sure, if I told you that there was a movie where Sean Penn plays Robert Smith from The Cure after a head injury rendered him unable to care for himself, and he decides to team up with Judd Hirsch to go Nazi hunting in a surreal road trip across the American West, you might say, "Well, where can I see that and how soon can it happen?" and I wouldn't blame you one bit. This is the bad version. And oh, boy, it's that special kind of bad that comes from fearlessness, where someone confidently walks off the side of a building 90 stories up. There's not even a hint that anyone involved ever had that 3:00 AM moment of doubt where they thought "Maybe this isn't the best idea for a movie we've ever had."
