Worst Movies of 2013: 'The Lone Ranger,' 'The Counselor,' 'The Purge' and more
25. 'The Rambler'
Release date: January 21
Director: Calvin Reeder
Stars: Dermot Mulroney, Lindsay Pulsipher, Natasha Lyonne
Why It's Terrible: When people speak with disdain about indie films or film festivals, "The Rambler" is exactly what they think they're talking about. There's a fine line between surrealism and stupidity, and Reeder is nowhere near that fine line. I'll say this much for him: it is not easy to make a film this singularly unpleasant, but he's managed to make something that aims at comedy, drama, horror, and emotion and which hits exactly one note: annoying. If you disagree, though, the good news is his entire filmography is exactly the same movie, so there's more where this came from.
