While moviegoers often flock to bad movies in large numbers (see: 2018's "The Nun" and "Fifty Shades Freed"), professional film critics will tend to pile condemnation on those same films.

To find out which movies film critics have collectively hated the most, we turned to the reviews aggregator Metacritic to compile this list of the most critically panned movies in history.

From ill-advised sequels like "Scary Movie 5" and "Caddyshack II," to two dubious political documentaries by conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, these films drew the ire of critics and provoked the repulsion of many.

Here are the 75 worst movies of all time, according to critics:

Note: Only movies with seven or more online reviews appear in the ranking, so it skews toward more recent films.

What critics said: "While the original was no classic, it had a few mild laughs and the plus-sized actor displayed a certain buffoonish charm.

(Warner Bros.)

Critic score: 7/100

User score: N/A

What critics said: "'Caddyshack II,' a feeble follow-up to the 1980 laff riot, is lamer than a duck with bunions, and dumber than grubs. It's patronizing and clumsily manipulative, and top banana Jackie Mason is upstaged by the gopher puppet." — The Washington Post

What critics said: "It’s only fitting that a series that began with the concept of linking the digestive tracts of three people would end by feasting on its own sh-t." — The Dissolve

Critic score: 5/100

User score: 2.2/10

What critics said: "Sure to appear in everyone's worst-of lists at year's end, to say nothing of a few bad dreams, Bryan Johnson's Vulgar is an unclassifiably awful study in self- and audience-abuse." — Village Voice

(Screen Media Films)

Critic score: 1/100

User score: 0.7/10

What critics said: "As propaganda, 'United Passions' is as subtle as an anvil to the temple. As drama, it’s not merely ham-fisted, but pork-shouldered, bacon-wristed, and sausage-elbowed." — Village Voice
