Big screen blunders: disappointing films of 2009

No best-of-the-year film list would be complete without a glimpse at the films that made audience-goers cringe in 2009. From harebrained comedies to ambitious prestige pieces that just fell short of the mark, the following is a list of films that failed to scintillate at the Cineplex.

Artists go down to the Paradise City

Aggressive, offensive and always in poor taste, few modern filmmakers have the chutzpah to venture over such tough terrain.
