Yahoo has a nice list of box office bombs.

Ishtar
Howard the Duck
The Adventures of Pluto Nash
Town and Country
Cutthroat Island
The Postman
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Zyzzyzx Road (budget $2 million, gate $ 30 - as in 30 dollars)
Meet Dave
Speed Racer
Hudson Hawk
Showgirls

I have to stop now, before I choke to death laughing.

I don't think something like Epic Movie can be considered a disaster since it has no chance to be good in the first place.

Now take something that has every chance in the world to be great, but ended up being a total and complete failure of cinema - Terminator: Salvation, The Matrix Reloaded, Pirates 2 and 3...THOSE are the real disasters.

Any list like this that does not put The Room at the top loses all credibility. The Room, perhaps my favorite movie of all time, is the biggest piece of shit on earth. It is gloriously horrific. The other movies on the list are bad for this reason or that. The Room is bad for every reason. The acting, writing, effects, soundtrack, casting, lighting, sound, establishing shots, timing, pacing, logic - literally every single component of any movie are all significantly worse than anything else out there. It is a masterpiece of shit. It's the greatest movie ever.

1. I agree that it's bad, though not number one for me.

2. Well, the tongue was good.

3. Not viewed but agreeing

4. I watched ESB instead.

5. Bestiality jokes that aren't funny.

6. I Watched ESB again instead.

7. That sounds like a documentary or a youtube video.

8. Not bad, but more like straight to DVD instead.

9. Agreed. Surpassed in horribleness only by Highlander: The Source.

10. And the sequels, the hall, the garage, and the deck.
