10 Worst Summer Movie Flops »

strong>Stinker: Ishtar
Release Date: May 15, 1987
Budget: $55 million
National Gross: $14 million


Probably the most famous summer box office dud of all time (industry insiders referred to it as “The Road to Ruin”), this tone-deaf comedy stars Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman as two abysmal lounge singers who get swept into an international incident in Morocco. Who wouldn’t want to see those two icons swathed in Middle Eastern garb trading Elaine May-written witticisms? Apparently thousands of people, everywhere. Because no one saw it, and Beatty, Hoffman, and May are still living it down.

Stinker: Jonah Hex
Release Date: June 18, 2010
Budget: $47 million
National Gross: $10 million

Not even Megan Fox’s righteous rack propped up in a Wild West-style corset could lure bodies in the seats to see this clunker. The plot wasn’t bad (something about a scarred Civil War vet charged with stopping an evil terrorist), but audiences had never heard of this obscure DC Comics character. Plus, it came out the same weekend as Toy Story. No chance.

Stinker: The Adventures of Pluto Nash
Release Date: August 16, 2002
Budget: $100 million
National Gross: $7 million

Let’s be clear, Eddie Murphy is no stranger to a flop. But this flop was massive; one of the most serious money-losers of all time. When you consider the plot – a guy tries to keep his nightclub-on-the-moon out of the hands of the mafia – it’s easy to see why. Dude, what were they thinking?

Release Date: May 9, 2008
Budget: $200 million
National Gross: $93 million

This anime action adaption had a downright amazing look to it (if you aren’t given to seizures, that is), but it was long on aesthetics and short on story. Plus, it was too loud. Didn’t stop Emile Hirsch, though – for him, this was just the dud sandwiched between Milk and Into the Wild, two commercial and critical faves.

Stinker: Waterworld
Release Date: July 28, 1995
Budget: $235 million
National Gross: $88 million

From the mid-Eighties to mid-Nineties, Kevin Costner was golden. Hit after hit. And then this happened -- his big, bloated, embarrassing vanity project. The plot was opaque (the world’s underwater, there’s a mutated sea captain, and starving children, and sci-fi outlaws called “smokers,” and an environmental subtext, and…), but the acting was worse. Shout out to Tina Majorino, though. She was one of most talented child actors of all time.

Stinker: Green Lantern
Release Date: June 17, 2011
Budget: $325 million
National Gross: $116 million

Ryan Reynolds was totally adorable in this movie, but the movie itself sucked so hard. His costume was too monochromatically green, the plot involved a complicated mythology (3,600 intergalactic sectors, alien rings, squadron tasks), and Blake Lively had brown hair. And finally, Warner Bros. hadn’t learned the previous summer’s lesson, that it doesn’t pay to build a huge summer blockbuster around a comic book hero that isn’t widely well-known, like Superman or Batman.

Stinker: Battleship
Release Date: May 18, 2012
Budget: $209 million
National Gross: $65 million

With a cast of drop-dead sexy hotties like Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Alexander Skarsgard, and Brooklyn Decker, this fast-paced action thriller seemed like a no-brainer blockbuster. Nope. The first problem was that it was based on a board game that younger generations aren’t familiar with. The second issue? The aforementioned hotties can’t act (with the exception of Skarsgard). We must admit, we felt so bad for Kitsch when Battleship torpedoed – just two months before, his John Carter had also landed with a resounding thud. #boxofficepoison

Release Date: July 23, 2004
Budget: $100 million

Hollywood insiders believe that the role the Best Actress Oscar-winner takes after winning the golden man is usually a clunker. Halle Berry proved this to be true when she starred in this decidedly declawed feline flick. And the S&M-y leather costume didn’t even seem to fit her properly, which is a crime against nature.

Budget: $75 million

A decade ago, Bennifer owned the tabloid game. But by the time this crime caper hit theaters, this glittery-obnoxious duo had worn out their pop culture welcome – and audiences stayed away in droves. So much so that Warner Bros. was forced to pull this Affleck-directed bomb from theaters only three weeks later! J. Lo always lands on her feet, but this thing almost slaughtered Ben’s career -- which made his 2012 Best Director Oscar even sweeter.

We’re not even wasting time on the Amanda Bynes wigginess of the hair. John Travolta’s passion project – an adaption of the epic sci-fi novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard – was dead in the water because it was an embarrassingly indulgent drag show straining to be important. We hear that Travolta initially asked Quentin Tarantino to direct. Can you imagine?

Camp Classic: Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
Chock-full of spot-on summer camp tropes (like the nice guy scoring the girl, outcasts saving the day, etc.), this underrated flick takes place at a Jewish camp on the last day of the summer of ’81. But with this stellar comedy cast -- Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Paul Rudd, Chris Melloni, Amy Poehler and Michael Ian Black -- who cares what it’s about?

In possibly the sweetest movie about young amor ever (and if you mention Endless Love we’re hanging up), a 12-year-old orphan flees his New England summer camp, Camp Ivanhoe, with a local rich girl, also 12 – and the town sends out a search party to find them. They armed with books, binoculars, a cat, and share a sweet smooch after dancing to Francois Hardy in their undies. It’s fabulous.

Camp Classic: Little Darlings (1980)
A group of Atlanta-area teen girls make a bet at summer camp to see who will lose their virginity first. They break into teams, choose “targets” (the boys), and it’s all sort of horrifying that the adults have no idea that it’s happening. Notable for a young Cynthia Nixon, and for the fact that an entire generation of lesbians point to Kristy McNichol and Tatum O’Neal’s hotness as the moment they “knew.”

Video: Too Funky (George Michael)
Similarly to his “Freedom” video, the pop pinup rounded up the hottest supermodels of ’92, swathed them in avant garde designer Thierry Mugler’s pieces, and came up with this campy ode to over-the-top glamour, dahhling. This video’s notable not only for the overtly vampy models (including a baby-faced Tyra!), but also because it’s the last time anyone ever thought George Michael was straight.

Supermodel: Helena Christensen
Video: Wicked Game (Chris Isaak)
Probably the standard by which all sexy music videos are set, this one stars a rockabilly-hot Isaak and the wildly luscious Danish goddess -- all bronzed limbs, butt-length hair, and mesmerizing pale eyes. Oh and bare boobs! Famed fashion photog Herb Ritts shot it, which meant the almost-nudity was artful.

Supermodels: Iman
Video: Remember the Time (Michael Jackson)
In the midst of all the bells and whistles in this video (Eddie Murphy, Magic Johnson, Coming to America-style choreo) was Iman, starring as a Nefertiti-esque Egyptian queen. Regal, ridiculous stunning, and unfortunately forced to kiss MJ, she was and is too flawless to be believed.

Supermodel: Kate Moss
Video: I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself (The White Stripes)
On the surface, this black-and-white, Sofia Coppola-directed video is a bit boring. It's just the Brit bad girl in her underwear, performing the world's laziest pole-dance, ever (downers, Kate?). But it has a subversive, jaded appeal that's seriously hot. Like something really, really naughty gonna went down the second Sofia mumbled "cut."

With the release of his "Dangerous" album, Jackson tried to sex up his image. The obvious move? Cavort around in a wife-beater with one of the world's most lusted-after supermodels of all time! Ritts directed this video, so like Wicked Games, it featured lots of groping, grinding, and lingering shots of sand-covered skin.

We all know what went down with RiRi and Breezy, back in 2009. In an attempt to heal, the pop star recreated scenes from their turbulent relationship for her “We Found Love” video – and casted her current squeeze, a Chris Brown lookalike (they even both had bleached blond hair at the time).

She guest-stars on TV shows here and there, and is happily married to a non-industry guy, Kurt Iswarienko (their engagement was broadcast in a charming 2011 reality show, Shannen Says).

In what might be the most dramatic bad-girl turnaround in celebdom, the self-described “punk girl with tattoos” has like 39 kids with a total dreamboat, lands Oscar nominations practically every year, and is the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (what a title). Plus, the actress/director’s recent preventative double-mastectomy has elevated her to goddess status.

Wild Child: Britney Spears
Bad Behavior: Drug abuse, Kevin Federline, an annulled Vegas wedding, erratic behavior (including shaving her head, driving with her baby on her lap, flashing her hoo-ha, and charging after paparazzi with an umbrella)
After a criminally zonked-out performance at the 2007 MTV VMAs, BritBrit’s dad became her guardian and pulled her ish together. Six years later, the legendary pop star is a fragrance mogul, yoga fanatic, X Factor judge, and is still making number one records (like last year’s “Scream and Shout”).

Girlfriend: Eva Mendes as Roxanne Simpson
Movie: Ghost Rider (2007)
This movie was abominable and Nicholas Cage was super-miscast as Johnny Blaze. But Mendes! Buxom, brainy (that reporter archetype, again), and Sophia Loren-smoldering, the actress was exactly what the film needed to distract us from two hours of Cage’s flaming head.

Girlfriend: Amy Adams as Lois Lane
Movie: Man of Steel (2013)
Superman stans are divided with regards to the brainy, multiple-Oscar-nominee playing their beloved girl reporter. First of all, she has red hair. Secondly, she’s a tad beyond the typical ingénue age (a gorgeous 38). But Lois Lane is supposed to be an established career woman, a girl-next-door with gravitas! We sooo see it. Can’t wait to catch this flick when in premieres on June 13th.

Movie: Green Lantern (2011)
Lively is almost a laughingly ineffective actress – but she doesn’t need to be anything else. Playing the test pilot girlfriend of Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds, her now-hubbie), she was at her bodacious-bodied, mumbly-mouthed hottest. Bonus? The Gossip Girl alumna trained with Cirque du Soleil aerialists to perform her own stunts! Kickass.

Girlfriend: Cameron Diaz as Tina Carlyle
Movie: The Mask (1994)
The 21-year-old model had zero acting experience before her turn as Tina. But Diaz was so slinky and breathlessly sexy as the Coco Bongo lounge singer, that she almost walked away with the whole movie (Jim Carrey as The Mask was friggen genius). Our favorite part? The choreographed Cuban-style dance number starring Diaz and Carrey, at the bombshell’s nightclub. Classic.

Scarface (1932, 1983) 
The 1930’s tale of a Prohibition-era gangster rising up the mafia ranks is def a classic. But Brian De Palma’s grisly, over-the-top update is about a poor Cuban refugee down to do whatever it takes to get the American dream. Thus, he becomes a drug kingpin. The rags-to-riches theme, the lurid violence, the mountains of coke, Pacino’s insane Cuban accent, the Hawaiian shirts – it’s all iconic. Say hello to my little friend.

But Brian De Palma’s grisly, over-the-top update is about a poor Cuban refugee down to do whatever it takes to get the American dream. Thus, he becomes a drug kingpin. The rags-to-riches theme, the lurid violence, the mountains of coke, Pacino’s insane Cuban accent, the Hawaiian shirts – it’s all iconic. Say hello to my little friend.

Ringu (1998), The Ring (2002) 
Remember when Hollywood was obsessed with remaking Japanese horror films? The original, a psycho-horror flick about a VHS tape that kills whoever watches it, is super-creepy. But the videotape footage isn’t that scary, and the plot lags midway through. Meanwhile, Gore Verbinski’s update delivers nonstop chills! We don’t know what’s more legendary: the surreal horror of the VHS tape, or the drowned chick’s herky-jerky lurching towards the camera...after crawling out of the TV, of course.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2009, 2011) 
The original version was a blockbuster in Sweden -- and Noomi Rapace’s bleak portrayal of tattooed-and-pierced punk, Lisbeth Sallander, made her a star. But in David Fincher’s do-over, Rooney Mara plays the hacker as more than just a hardcore tuffgirl. She’s vulnerable and oddly fragile, and it brings so much more depth to the story. Plus, it’s got Daniel Craig.

The Great Gatbsy (1974, 2013) 
Starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, the Seventies version is notoriously a big ol’ bore (but the costuming was breathtaking; it won the designer an Oscar!). The new version is poised to be anything but. First of all, it’s in 3D. Secondly, Baz Luhrmann’s (Moulin Rouge) the director, so you know it’ll be a lush, sensory spectacle. Thirdly, Jay Z. oversaw the soundtrack. And finally? Leo is Gatsby. What could go wrong?

Little Shop of Horrors (1960, 1986) 
This campy drive-in flick features a man-eating plant named Audrey II (plus Jack Nicholson, in his first movie role!), and was made on no budget – which would explain the cardboard set. But the update was a hilarious musical comedy starring a Supremes-esque girl group as the Greek chorus, Steve Martin as a sadistic dentist, and Rick Moranis as the plant’s dorky owner. Meanwhile, Audrey II was voiced by the Temptations’ lead singer, Levi Stubbs.

Oceans Eleven (1960, 2001) 
If we’re judging on cool factor alone, the original Vegas caper flick holds up. Hello, it stars the entire Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop (not to mention a vampy Angie Dickinson)! But a great cast does not a great movie make. It’s boring. The 2001 flick not only stars its own team of swaggy-snazzy A-listers – Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Cheadle, and Roberts – it‘s also got zippy dialogue, a clever plot, and epic co-star chemistry. Oh, and those suits.

Infernal Affairs (2002), The Departed (2006) 
The Hong Kong crime thriller tells a genius story -- but once Martin Scorcese got his hands on it, there was just no comparison. He amped up the stakes, infused the paranoid tale with some darkly comedic bits (Baldwin!), and directed the hell out of a couple of pros (hi, DiCaprio, Damon, and Nicholson). The original is dark, but the update is dark and fun. Hence, the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Cape Fear (1962, 1991) 
The original thriller – about an unhinged ex-con seeking revenge on the lawyer who sent him to jail– is good. Robert Mitchum is effectively sinister. But in Scorcese’s version, Robert DeNiro is downright terrifying (that psychotic hillbilly accent!).  It’s really all about the creepy, famous scene where he seduces the lawyer’s innocent teen daughter (played by Juliette Lewis, who received an Oscar nom) – and actually sticks his thumb in her mouth. Shudder.
