Britney film named worst of 2002

Britney Spears' debut film Crossroads (2002) has been voted the worst movie of 2002 in the Naftas - an alternative film award to find the year's biggest flops.

The movie, which was savaged by critics and failed to excel at the box office, came top of the poll of UK film fans above Ali G in da House (2002) and Men In Black 2 (2002).

The Naftas were compiled using a phone vote on Virgin Radio, ahead of the Baftas, which take place on Sunday.

Crossroads is also nominated for eight Razzie Awards - the US prizes for the year's worst films - including nominations for worst actress and most flatulent teen-targeted movie.

The top 10 worst films are:

1. Crossroads (2002)

2. Ali G in da House (2002)

3. Men In Black 2 (2002)

4. Jeepers Creepers (2001)

5. XXX (2002)

6. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)

7. Lord Of The Rings: 2 Towers (2002)

8. Slap Her, She's French (2001)

9. Signs (2002)

10. Austin Powers 3: Goldmember (2002)
