Home Cheap Entertainment This decade’s biggest movie failure: Eddie Murphy’s ‘Pluto Nash’

rl_plutonashColor me shocked on this one: The Eddie Murphy space adventure, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, is by far the biggest flop of the decade. The 2002 film was made for a reported $100 million but only took in $4.4 million domestically. That hurts.

Though the movie isn’t as bad as some of the other films on the below list, Pluto Nash was definitely one of the huge stinkers during the beginning of this decade.

John Travolta’s Battlefield Earth comes in at No.2 with Land of the Lost, Gigle and Town and Country rounding out the top five.
