Movie reviewer Rich Cline lists the ten worst movies of 2016
Most of these movies feature actors, actresses and filmmakers who really should have known better. None of them are easy to watch...
10. 13 Hours - Michael Bay's bombastic filmmaking style may have seemed like the perfect fit for this rah-rah Benghazi dramatisation. But this is a loud, silly thriller that completely misses the point.

In the new animated adventure-comedy The Secret Life of Pets, Kevin Hart voices a villainous but adorable white bunny called Snowball
Hart's character leads a gang of stray pets living in the sewers of New York City. And the actor-comic jokes that he went method for the role. "As a thespian nothing is easy," he says. "You have to go to a dark place with anything you do. Being a fan of Daniel Day Lewis, you have to invest in that character. So I was a rabbit for almost two years. A bunny suit, carrots, carrot juice. I went and spent a lot of time with some bunnies. I only ate lettuce for like seven months before filming this movie!"

He goes on to comment on getting the character's physicality. "I didn't want to use my fingers," he continues, "because I was like, 'It's no fair, bunnies don't have fingers!' So I just wore mittens for like that seven-month period. I made a thumping noise because bunnies thump. And I just hopped a lot. I hopped a whole lot. And when it came time to film, I had the mindset of a bunny. And then I realized that I was in a sound booth, and I didn't have to use any of that s**t!"

After teaming up with Will Ferrell for Get Hard and Ice Cube for two Ride Along movies, Kevin Hart takes on The Rock in this entertaining action-comedy bromance. They make a great couple, as Dwayne Johnson's bulk cleverly contrasts with Hart's tightly wound intensity. Even more enjoyable is that they've essentially swapped roles, with Hart as the straight guy opposite Johnson's awkward goofball.
They play characters who knew each other in high school, when Calvin (Hart) was the king of the campus, captain of every sports team, star of every theatre production, top student and boyfriend of the sexiest cheerleader (Danielle Nicolet), whom he went on to marry. On the other hand, Bob (Johnson) was a badly bullied, overweight kid, who now turns up in town for their 20th reunion as a beefy muscleman. Clearly a little unhinged, Bob is also a rogue CIA operative, hunted by his boss Pam (Amy Ryan) for killing his partner (Aaron Paul) and other crimes he insists he didn't commit. So he ropes Calvin in to help clear his name, but Calvin finds this situation so insane that he's not sure who to believe.
While all of this plays out in a blissfully silly way, there's also a bit of an edge to the movie as it explores the issue of bullying with some gentle nuance that includes racism, sexism and homophobia. So even when it's rude or mindlessly corny, the movie is making a point. That said, the message might have been more convincing without the over-the-top violence that fills all of the action sequences. Thankfully, that never drowns out the terrific chemistry between Johnson and Hart, who bounce hilariously off each other as two men who have been emasculated in very different ways and need to prove themselves. This vulnerability makes both of them easy to identify with, especially as they play with their usual on-screen personas.

From the team behind Despicable Me and Minions, this high-energy adventure makes up for its rather simplistic story by filling the screen with lively characters, silly dialog and colourful animation. There's nothing terribly distinctive about the movie, as most of the gags feel recycled and everything bounces across the surface without generating any resonance either in the humour or emotions. But it's a lot of fun while it lasts.
In a cosy Manhattan apartment, the happy rescue dog Max (voiced by Louis C.K.) lives with his owner Katie (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper). The moment she steps out of the door on the way to work, he's already bored and waiting for her to come home. So he hangs out with the other pets in the neighbourhood, including lovelorn pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) and food-obsessed cat Chloe (Lake Bell). Then Katie brings home another stray, the gigantic brown furball Duke (Eric Stonestreet), who immediately starts challenging Max's alpha-dog status. As war breaks out between them, they find themselves stranded in the city, caught up with a sewer-dwelling gang of abandoned pets led by the adorable but intense bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart). Meanwhile, Gidget and Chloe recruit some help to find them, including a grumpy hawk (Albert Brooks) and an ageing basset hound (Dana Carvey).
The plot basically consists of a series of chaotic chase sequences that build up to a climactic scene straight out of a Die Hard movie. Each character and plot element is over-constructed, which eliminates any sense of honest emotion or loose interaction, but the characters are likeable simply because they're so ridiculous. The animators use a lot of colour and a tactile variety of furry textures. And the actors have a lot of fun with the characters. Hart is, of course, the scene-stealer as the fast-talking kingpin who uses his cuteness as a weapon. And while C.K. and Stonestreet are endearing as the story's protagonists, it's Slate and Bell who win over the audience in the funniest, most complex roles.

Throughout production of Central Intelligence, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson engaged in a hilarious barrage of on-set social media photos and videos, clearly enjoying their partnership both on-screen and off.
With a long list of buddy comedies behind him, Hart has an idea why some teams work and others don't. "I think it's a little bit of special Kev sauce," he laughs. "Nah, it's all about the chemistry. Without the chemistry you can't expect to see results. I honestly have to say that Dwayne was above and beyond a pleasure to work with. He brought chemistry and an amazing work ethic."
To which Johnson interjects, "Yeah. And my good looks!"
