We will never get this. How can a movie that basically everyone hates goes onto become a box-office smash hit? Sure, most of these movies rely on savvy marketing to get a huge opening. That makes sense. But what after that? Once the word on the street is out that the film is terrible, how does it still manage to keep making money. Guess, there are just too many lazy people out there. Let’s leave it at that, and jump right into the list of such movies that we have no clue how they earned so much money. Note: If more than one film in a movie series qualified for the list, only the worst one has been featured.

10. Meet the Fockers (2004)

Meet the Fockers

9. Suicide Squad (2016)

suicide-squad-movie-characters

RT Score: 26%

Critical Consensus: Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren’t enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.

Worldwide Box Office: $635,982,627

 

8. Fifty Shades of the Grey (2015)

Worldwide Box Office: $571,006,128

 

7. The Da Vinci Code (2006)

6. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011)

The Twilight Saga

RT Score: 24%

Worldwide Box Office: $712,205,856

 

5. Bad Boys II (2003)

Bad-Boys-II-after-credits-large

4. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

Lara-Croft-Tomb-Raider

Worldwide Box Office: $274,703,340

 

3. Rush Hour 3 (2007)

Rush Hour 3

2. Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

Transformers Age of Extinction

Worldwide Box Office: $1,104,054,072

 

1. Grown Ups (2010)

Grown Ups

RT Score: 10%
