There are many variables that are at play when we look at how well a movie does in theaters. There are so many things that can ruin a potentially awesome movie from ever breaking even, from the acting or the other movies that open on the same weekend. Check out our list of the biggest movie flops of the 21st Century and why it could be that they did so bad.
10. Life, or Something Like It (2002)
Angelina Jolie wasn’t always so successful, and 2002’s Life, or Something Like It proves just that. The $40 million budget vs. ticket sales of just $16 million equals approximately $24 million in losses. The plot, which follows a TV reporter who tries to live life to the fullest after finding she has just seven days to live, was fairly interesting but Rotten Tomatoes gave it a rating of just 4.5/10. This wasn’t Angelina’s last folly in theaters, but it was probably one of her worst movies.
