The Week has rounded up the worst reviewed films of 2013, based on Rotten Tomatoes scores. As to be expected, some of these titles were more publicized critical and financial bombs (M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," starring Jaden and Will Smith, for example), while others barely register in memory ("The Big Wedding" and "Getaway" -- huh?). Check out the list, below.

The Week has rounded up the worst reviewed films of 2013, based on Rotten Tomatoes scores. As to be expected, some of these titles were more publicized critical and financial bombs (M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," starring Jaden and Will Smith, for example), while others barely register in memory ("The Big Wedding" and "Getaway" -- huh?). Check out the list, below.

"Getaway," which takes the cake as the worst reviewed film of the year with a paltry 2% Rotten on the Tomatometer, stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez. They're probably not too concerned about it -- Hawke had a great year with critical darling "Before Midnight" and box office surprise "The Purge," while Gomez was one of the bikini-clad stars of Harmony Korine's cult fave "Spring Breakers." 

Here are the worst reviewed films of 2013, per Rotten Tomatoes:

1. "Getaway" (2% Rotten)

Jaden Smith in "After Earth."
Jaden Smith in "After Earth."

2. "Paranoia" (4% Rotten)

3. "Movie 43" (4% Rotten)

4. "Scary Movie 5" (4% Rotten)

5. "Battle of the Year" (4% Rotten)

6. "The Big Wedding" (7% Rotten)

7. "Grown Ups 2" (7% Rotten)

8. "The Host" (8% Rotten)

9. "A Haunted House" (10% Rotten)

10. "After Earth" (11% Rotten)

And while we're on the subject of turkeys (or perceived turkeys), TIME unleashed their Worst Ten of 2013 last week. They're below, in case you missed them. Do you agree with the selections? A couple of us TOH! contributors are actually big fans of Ridley Scott's "The Counselor" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives."

1. "Grown Ups 2"

2. "Salinger"

Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender in "The Counselor"
