Worst Movies of 2013: 'The Lone Ranger,' 'The Counselor,' 'The Purge' and more
21. 'White House Down'
Release date: June 28
Director: Roland Emmerich
Stars: Channing Tatum, Jammie Fox, Maggie Gyllenhaal
Why it's terrible: The man behind "ID4" and "Godzilla" isn't known for his realism, but whatever tone Emmerich was hoping for with "White House Down" was a huge miscalculation. A ludicrously hard to believe screenplay includes a scene where the President of the United States wants to save his Air Jordans while the home of the leader of the free world (his job) is at siege. Do you really need to know anything more? (Poor Gyllenhaal, is this all she can get these days?)
