2000s Exploding Domestic Box Office Movie Duds
If you are an American or Canadian and saw any of these great films: You probably didn't see these films in a movie theater, as hardly anybody did. But, you likely regard them to be good enough to be worthy of the price of admission, based on your collective IMDb ratings. When "bad" movies go onto break a $100 million or more in domestic box office receipts regularly, it is hard to fathom how these "good" films couldn't do at least a meager $2.5 million in domestic box office receipts. Despite their poor results, every one of these movies eventually found a HUGE audience. They achieved wide spread viewership through VOD, pay TV, cable TV, broadcast TV, Blu-ray/DVD/VHS, media streaming services or another type of screening. Nonetheless, you are probably like me, scratching your head and wondering why these films didn't do better at the box office. Which of these 2000s movies*, that produced relatively meager North American ticket sales, but went on to be widely seen anyways, is your favorite of the decade? * 90,000+ IMDb votes, < $2.5m Domestic USA-Canada box office, 6.5+ IMDb user rated Vote in the companion poll: 2010s Exploding Box Office Movie Duds Discuss the topic here.
