Notable Cast: Halle Berry, Sharon Stone, Benjamin Bratt, Lambert Wilson
When a film is wildly considered by critics (and fans) was one of the worst film's ever made, you know you have something special. "Catwoman", the pseudo-spinoff of the DC Comics character, is just that. It's very special. So special that leading lady Halle Berry showed up accept the Razzie she won with her previously won Oscar in hand and stated in her acceptance speech, "First of all, I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in a piece of shit, god-awful movie... It was just what my career needed." She definitely wasn't far from the truth and since "Catwoman" was released...her career tumbled with it. It's seriously that bad.
Patience Phillips (Berry) is a mess. She's an odd artist and graphics designer for a massive beauty company and beyond trying to keep her head straight, her personal life is in shambles. In a desperate attempt to keep her job, she ends up stumbling upon a secret about the new line of beauty product. It's addictive and upon stopping usage...it scars you for life! Upon learning said secret, the company goes to put Patience six feet down by throwing her down a sewer drain. Lucky for her, a mystical Egyptian cat gives he a new set of lives by breathing on her and gives her the powers of a cat and the mindset to make things right.
|The claws say "I'm bad." Her eyes say "This film is bad."|
|Somehow they got away with calling lingerie a superhero costume in this film.|
It's hard watching these relatively strong actors desperately try to push through the film by marionette-ing their bodies through the motions when its obvious they all knew this film was a joke. The action is edited to hell with way too much crappy CGI, the story is laughable, and the direction is all style and no substance. When critics said this was one of the worst films ever made...they were selling it short. It's not bad...it's abysmal.
