Plenty of box office bombs had it coming. The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Waterworld. John Carter. Those movies stank despite all the money pumped into them, and audiences knew well enough to stay away. Of course, the opposite is sometimes true.

Some movies, despite their quality, go unnoticed and no one showers them with cash. You might be suprised about some of these quality bombs, as they're no regarded as classics. Either way, they're all deserving of your time.
