Steven Spielberg: Ranking His Movies From Worst To Best

28. 1941 (1979)

1941 Even masters make mistakes, and one needs to look no further than this Spielberg misstep. Bloated and over-budgeted, this is a big, brash action comedy that is neither funny nor action-packed. A stellar ensemble cast led by some of the hottest comic actors of the time, including Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, were not enough to save this film. Spielberg would prove his comedy chops again later in his career, but watching this film it is clear that he was still a young and inexperienced director.
