10 Most Disastrous Summer Movie Flops

By Bryan Enk | Movie Talk – 6 hours ago

The summer movie season can be like Hollywood's version of hitting the tables in Vegas. The studios put down big bets with the hopes of an even bigger payout. But everyone rolls snake eyes now and again.

Still, there's a difference between a movie that underperforms at the box office and one that downright collapses.

Sometimes a film can be so disastrous that its very title becomes synonymous with the word "flop" ("Ishtar," for one). Here are 10 high-profile, big-budget summer movies that bombed and bombed hard.

I haven't seen HH in ages, can't remember anything about it. Other than Bruce Willis trying to steal a black cat or something.

Speed Racer was great. Around the World in 80 Days was unwatchable.

Hudson Hawk is better than most of Bruce Willis' movies.

I really like the scene in that movie where you see him gradually learn their language over time. That's all I remember from that movie but I remember thinking it was nicely done.

That scene was very well done. Not hammy like other films I can't remember. My only gripe with the film was I wish they spent more time in the beginning at the camp when Antonio Banderas met the Norsemen.

I've never heard of it... I'll watch the trailer and see if I remember seeing that.

Edit - Oh, it's from 1991? I thought I saw it said 2003 on that site.
1991 I was 7, so I can see why I wouldn't have heard of this.

I was 9 in 1991. I saw it on TV at some point and then many more times after that.

My grandmother took me to see True Lies in the theater in 94 (so I was 12 and my brother was 9). She got crooked looks from the people at the theater but we all had a good time.

The most amusing part of that article is in the Yahoo Summer movie tweets thing on the right, the White House Down twitter feed retweeted Red Letter Media's sarcastic tweet to Roland Emmerich about how "AMAZING" that movie looks, and thanking him for his contribution to the art of film making.
