@Equus,
King's Ransom

http://z.about.com/d/movies/1/0/6/T/6/kingsransomposter.jpg



King's Ransom was a disaster at the box office and received almost unanimously negative reviews from the critics. The film only took in approximately four million US dollars at the box office in just over a month. The average grade on Yahoo! Movies from the critics was a D- and from the Yahoo! Users, a D. It was also one of the few films to receive a 0% fresh rating from the critics on rottentomatoes.com.

Kenneth Branagh's grand £30 million scheme to make a trio of new-look Shakespearean films has hit the buffers, following the UK box office flop of the critically-panned 1930s-musical version of Love's Labour's Lost.
Love's Labour's Lost cost £8 million but it took less than £350,000 in the UK, making it one of the biggest box office flops of 2000.

National Lampoon's Gold Diggers

http://www.impawards.com/2004/posters/national_lampoons_gold_diggers.jpg



The film was considered a dismal failure, with a theatrical run of only 1 week, and earning less than $400,000 as opening weekend receipts (less than $400 per theater). It is currently ranked a 0% on RottenTomatoes.com meaning there were no positive reviews. According to film review website metacritic.com which compiles and averages critics' review scores, the film is the 8th worst reviewed film of all time

Love it or hate it, it was a commercial flop.

The Postman received generally negative reviews, faring only 10% on RottenTomatoes.com. The New York Times gave a scathing review criticizing the movie for its "bogus sentimentality" and "mawkish jingoism". Roger Ebert recognized the movie as a failed parable, for which he said theviewers "shouldn't blame them for trying".

Q - The Winged Serpent. Quetzalcoatl, winged monster of Aztec mythology, is awakened. Nobody has seen it and lived (the monster, not the movie).

@firefly,
I love Robot Monster. His video communicator spews soap bubbles. Overall it is somewhat boring, but the stupid moments are marvelous.

This 1981 movie stars Chevy Chase and Carrie Fisher. Even by today's standards this is an astoundingly unfunny and tasteless comedy about spies, undercover agents and midgets. Described by Leonard Maltin as a 'bomb'.

Vampire in Brooklyn made its money back, but just barely.

Waterworld, which actually made some money despite its reputation to the contrary.

Very silly plot points in a movie about the future Earth covered in water: the Exxon Valdez is still afloat and partially filled with oil, dirt is the unit of currency, and Denver is under 1,000 or so feet of water but the Rockies don't break the surface.

This 1983 movie was a bomb. Despite a star cast it was an appalling waste of talent in a startlingly inept and unfunny pirate comedy. They should have walked the plank for this one.

The Legend of Zorro

Critical reaction to The Legend of Zorro was mostly mixed to negative. The film currently holds a rating of 47 out of 100 on Metacritic, and a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film a below-average review, awarding it one and a half stars (out of four), commenting that "of all of the possible ideas about how to handle the Elena character, this movie has assembled the worst ones." James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave The Legend of Zorro two stars (out of four), saying that "the action is routine", "the chemistry between the two leads, which was one of the highlights of The Mask of Zorro, has evaporated during the intervening years", and that the movie "fails to recapture the pleasure offered by The Mask of Zorro."

The film did reasonably well at the box-office, grossing $142,400,065 internationally, but did not match the success of its predecessor.
