We couldn't resist. We asked the nation's critics to name the year's worst picture, a category that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences politely eschews. As in the past, there was no shortage of vented spleen. Critics always disagree about the worst, some favoring head-chopping horror sequels, while others take aim at respectable drama rife with pretense. Never mind that "Barton Fink" took top awards at the Cannes Film Festival last spring.

June 9, 1991 | JACK MATHEWS, Jack Mathews is the film critic for Newsday.
"Can (Bruce) Willis do more than protect tall buildings from terrorists? 'Hudson Hawk' will be the true test." The question was raised in a recent magazine profile of Bruce Willis and if the movie is indeed a fair test of the star's range--of his ability to sell tickets to movies other than "Die Hard" and its sequel--he has failed. Moviegoers, in a poll as swift and democratic as any you'll find in American politics, turned thumbs down on "Hudson Hawk" on opening day.

Bruce Willis, as one of the most popular and highly paid stars in Hollywood, is familiar to most moviegoers. Joel Silver's name isn't a household word. But, as one of Hollywood's biggest producers, the controversial and press-shy Silver has brought to the screen such box-office hits as "Lethal Weapon," "Lethal Weapon 2," "Predator" and "Commando."
