The comedy film which was directed by 12 people - including Peter Farrelly who co-produced - also picked up Worst Screenplay and Worst Director.

Will Smith and his son Jaden - who he has with wife Jada Pinkett Smith - took home three Razzies for 'After Earth'.

The 15-year-old actor won worst lead, while the 45-year-old star won Worst Supporting Actor and the pair were named Worst Screen Combo.

Worst Actress went to Tyler Perry who starred as Mabel 'Madea' Simmons in 'A Madea Christmas' and Worst Supporting Actress was given to reality star Kim Kardashian for her role in 'Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor'.

Star-studded but puerile anthology of inept sketches, tenuously roped together by the mirthless antics of three teenage boys searching online for the most controversial movie ever. Talents (Jackman, Winslet, Warburton, Moretz) are squandered; gags are absent. If this is the future of film-making, we're doomed.
