a couple that haven't been mentioned and are pretty old

Ishtar - Warren Beatty Dustin Hoffman - only made 14 million of a 65 million budget

Heaven's gate - Jeff Bridges Mickey Rourke Christopher Walken - less than 4 million on a 44 million budget

Inchon - Sir Lawrence Oliver - once of the worst films of all time.

Put that next to Battlefield Earth with TRavolta and Forest Whitaker

and what about Halle Berry's tour de force Catwoman ?

I liked Rat Race (which was a remake of "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad [not sure how many mads are in the title) World", but they did note in the commentary that it might be the first comedy to have 3 different Academy Award winning actors in it (Whoopi Goldberg, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Kathy Bates), along with many other well-liked comedians, so I could see how it could fit in this category if you didn't like it.

And to think, Pacino got an Oscar nomination for it.

Also, how has this conversation gone for so long with no mention of Town & Country? Take a look at the cast: Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, Garry Shandling, Andie MacDowell, Jenna Elfman, Charlton Heston, and Josh Hartnett. Town & Country cost 90 million bucks to make, and its worldwide theatrical gross was 10 million with a 13% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Pretty much what Justin said about Prestige.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
You end up thinking you're so smart about how you know what Hugh Jackman is doing that you are blindsided by Christian Bale(s). Also, it's a really good movie with/without the twist.

Well I'm not sure how many people in that cast are actually good, but you're right about Love Actually being one of the few good examples of one of those multiple-stories-at-once movies.

Ocean's 12 is probably about as good an answer as there is. Between Damon, Clooney and Pitt there is probably one lead actor that 90% of the country really likes (Damon is my choice) and then a fantastic supporting cast around them. Then throw in a Bruce Willis cameo to boot.

I loved the Prestige.

I loved Ocean's 11 and 12 (c'mon...CZJ AND Vincent Cassel!) but 13 wasn't very good, I'll admit. And hate on Soapdish if you must but that means we can't be friends.

Let me cast another vote for Valentine's Day. That movie was very, very bad. Not only was it *bad*, it was wholly uninteresting.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Alex Baldwin's run as The Shadow stands out as a great cast but a TERRIBLE movie. Tim Curry, Ian McKellen, Peter Boyle, Jonathan Winters, and Penelope Ann Miller... and the result was a disaster of a film.

I actually saw it film in the theater. Did I see this with General Zod? Maybe he remembers...

ETERNAL SUNSHINE isn't just good, it's near to a masterpiece, and one of the best films of the last ten years.

You beat me to it! I assume the answer to your question is that we are the only unfortunate souls to have seen it. Abysmal film in every possible way.

The Score was OK, but distinctly mediocre given the cast (de Niro, Brando, Norton).

And whilst a lot of people seemed to like it, nobody will ever convince me that Gosford Park (Helen Mirren, Stephen Fry, Ryan Phillipe, Kelly Macdonald, Clive Owen, Kristin Scott Thomas, Michael Gambon, Charles Dance) is anything but a tedious dirge.

Wow...lots of love for that movie. I found it damn near impossible to follow, and pretty dumb...but that's just one man's opinion.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinions, and I respect everyone's, even if I disagree with them.

Eternal Sunshine is one of my all time favorites as well. Quirky, but good quirky and not annoying quirky.

I like how you did a title mash-up with a Smashing Pumpkins album.



I remember seeing ads for Oscar winner Robin Williams, Oscar winner Hillary Swank, and Oscar winner Al Pacino starring in Insomnia. Too bad the film was far from being an Oscar winner.

I'm in the same boat with a lot of Oliver Stone's work.

Oh, and speaking of Oliver, I liked the FF movies as well, but I think you're the first person I've seen who does too.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend was full of people I'm a fan of (Uma Thurman, Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, Rainn Wilson, Wanda Sykes, Anna Farris) but was borderline unwatchable. I remember sitting in the theater thinking it's GOT to be almost over and then realizing that Luke Wilson and Uma Thurman hadn't even broken up yet and we still hadn't reached the fucking concept of the movie.

(And I'll join the chorus loving The Prestige, Nothing But Trouble and especially Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which was probably the best movie of the last decade.)
