10 Worst Reboots of 2018
Lionsgate, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

There were some amazing reboots in 2018.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born is basking in the glow of Golden Globes nominations.

Netflix's endearing Queer Eye reboot has multiple Emmys and is returning in 2019 with new episodes.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is, as expected, an entertaining trash fire.

But, we're not here to talk about the good reboots. For every Murphy Brown (timely, relevant), there is a Magnum P.I. (Is anyone watching that?)

Here are our picks for the 10 worst reboots of 2018:

 

10. Muppet Babies 

 

Sure, Summer, the new purple baby penguin, is adorable… but where is Skeeter in this Muppet Babies reboot? #JusticeForSkeeter #YouWontBeForgotten

9. Charmed

 

The CW has brought back this bewitching series, which has yet to find the same passionate fandom of the original series. "The first episode of the new Charmed is clunkier than Rose McGowan's late-'90s shoe game," says Salon writer Melanie McFarland.

8. Lost in Space

 

Netflix rebooted this iconic sci-fi series this year to little fanfare due to its formulaic, mediocre nature. For more Netflix fails, see our list of the worst Netflix obsessions of the year.

7. Magnum P.I.

 

Sometimes there's just no need for a reboot to happen, and CBS' Magnum P.I. reboot proves that rule. It's solidly "meh." Maybe the missing mustache is the issue?

6. The Grinch

 

New York Post critic Johnny Oleksinski labels this animated flick a "totally unnecessary version of Dr. Seuss' holiday favorite," and we couldn't agree more. If you can't do it better, don’t make it at all.

5. Tomb Raider

 

The Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider flicks didn't earn her any Oscars, but they were fun, as opposed to this dull reboot that few bothered to see.

4. The Predator

 

The biggest headlines this movie received had to do with a controversial casting choice, which was later cut from the film. Not a good look.

3. Robin Hood

 

This latest attempt at a Robin Hood tale, starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx, made our list of the worst movies of 2018. New York Magazine (Vulture) writer Emily Yoshida labels it "thoroughly incoherent movie salad."

2. Death Wish

 

Bruce Willis stars in this vigilante justice stinker which has a dismal 17% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Jeannette Catsoulis, from The New York Times, calls "an imbecilic misfire."

1. Overboard

 

Let's face it: The first Overboard movie, starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, isn't a very good movie. So in that way, the reboot delivers on the promise of the first flick. Swapping the sexes (Eugenio Derbez is a rich playboy and Anna Faris is the working class woman who takes him in) doesn't change anything. This is just a bad movie.
