The 10 Best Box Office Bombs Of All Time

It’s always easy to kick a guy while he’s down. Especially if that guy happens to be named MacGruber. Even though the advance press for MacGruber was positive, the movie’s admittedly embarrassing $4.1M box office performance has turned most of the press sour as kitty litter and raised calls for SNL producer Lorne Michaels to stop spinning SNL skits into feature films. But great movies don’t always perform well at the box office, and I don’t care what anyone says—MacGruber is awesome. Its jokes are outrageous and unexpected. I felt what I imagine it might have been like to see Airplane for the first time.

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer and, as I know from a trip one May weekend a few years ago with my daughter, a busy time for emergency rooms nationwide.

11 More Incredibly Disturbing Moments in Kids' Movies

Children's movies are big business. Every couple of weeks, you can pretty much count on a new CGI movie to appear in theaters, nowadays usually in 3-D and more than likely with a Kids Meal tie in at a fast food chain.
