The 1997 movie starring Clooney as the caped crusader with Chris O’Donnell as Robin and Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl came top in an online survey by film magazine Empire to find the most disastrous film ever made. Clooney has not been shy about belittling the film and his role in it.

The magazine said it did not just come top in voters’ rankings but got almost three times as many votes as the next entry -- John Travolta’s science-fiction “Battlefield Earth” which was a film adaptation of a novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
