After breaking through in the ’90s, Reese Witherspoon became a rom-com star, an award-winning actor and producer, and one of the most beloved celebrities working today. But with a three-decade long career in Hollywood, she’s bound to have made some mistakes along the way. Based on the reviews, the following list represents the worst Reese Witherspoon movies of all time.

We once again turned to Rotten Tomatoes for a ranked list of every Reese Witherspoon film, then turned our attention to the 25 lowest-rated movies. Note that the site’s algorithm weights some critics higher than others, so don’t be surprised if the list isn’t in exact descending order. Still, the following films—including some beloved fan favorites—reflect the worst reviews of Witherspoon’s career.
