Film director most notable for the "Rush Hour" movies. Also single-handedly destroyed the X-Men franchise, scrapping all of the character development and careful storytelling that Bryan Singer crafted. He did this in favor of cramming in tons of characters with no plot relevance, and throwing in popular internet trends (Juggernaut Bitch).

Chubby and unshaven, he looks like he desperately needs a bath and a shave. Likes to refer to himself in the third person during interviews. A hack.
Brett Ratner: Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner are in that same age range that grew up on comics.

Interviewer: Only difference is, Bryan Singer did his homework and knows how to make a good movie.

Brett Ratner: But... I crammed in so many characters! I even used the "Juggernaut Bitch" internet trend!

The opposite of the Midas touch. A person for whom everything turns to crap, if (s)he gets involved.

Named after jewellery magnate Gerald Ratner, who infamously declared his proudcts to be "total crap" and wouldn't last much "longer than a M&S {Marks & Spencer} prawn sandwich", during a speech to the Insitute of Directors (1991).

Although his comments were meant to be tongue-in-cheek, shares in his company drastically plummeted and he almost bankrupted the company. The speech is often heralded as an example of the value of branding and image over quality.
It's a nightmare working with with Cheryl, she always bodges things up-- she's got the Ratner's touch.

1) When you gamble all of the money you made from selling goods you borrowed from someone else, and still lose all of THAT money.

2) When you hide in your side ho's closet and text her.
3)When you buy an uncut black opal gem online, and somehow get it stolen by Kevin Garnett.
1) Ah honey, you are pulling a Howard Ratner, now how are we gonna pay for our bills.
2) Ah honey, you are pulling a Howard Ratner, now how are we gonna unfuck Julia.
