15. Fantastic Four (2005)

The 2015 version of Fantastic Four was an embarrassing, almost tragic flop which barely clawed its money back. This version from a decade previous was much the same, er, thing critically — earning a Rotten Tomatoes fresh rating of 27 percent — but it did a lot better commercially, making more than $330 million worldwide.

14. The Happening

M. Night Shyamalan has had a career of ups and downs, with solid hits such as The Sixth Sense and limp flops like Lady in the Water. The Happening from 2008 bridges the gap — a box office success which earned $163 million globally, but a critical disaster which even star Mark Wahlberg once described — between expletives — as “really bad.”
