2009 did not start well for Dr K. The first film he saw was so terrible, that he pledged to give up film criticism if it wasn't one of his 10 worst films of the year. He also challenged viewers to suggest films they thought were worse than Bride Wars. In the end, even adding films he wasn't convinced were worse, he put it at number 8.

One person who did see it was Simon's daughter. Three times.
