As 2022 comes to a close, it’s time to look back on the movies that came out this year. And while many films had exclusive theatrical releases — something we hadn’t seen in a while since the Covid pandemic — there were also plenty that were released directly on streaming platforms. Between HBO Max, Disney+, AppleTV+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Paramount+, the year was chock-full of new titles to watch from the warm, familiar comfort of our homes. As always, Netflix has delivered a wealth of original movies and TV shows — some good, some bad. We’re here to talk about the bad ones.

It’s worth mentioning that plenty of the films below were viewed by millions upon millions of people. That doesn’t mean, however, that they were liked. Hate-watching is a thing, and while some people undoubtedly enjoyed these movies, the overall impressions from audiences and critics alike were resoundingly negative.

The worst Netflix-produced movies of the year include an adaptation of a classic book, a new installment in a fan favorite franchise, and a sequel to a lackluster teen comedy. They’re here to remind us that Netflix doesn’t have a perfect batting average — with the astounding range of content they release, there’s bound to be a few movies that miss the mark entirely. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch them. Sometimes, we all need a movie to scoff at while we do chores, catch up with friends, or scroll through Instagram.
