Top Ten Most Undeserving Box Office Flops

You've seen terrible movies make tons of money before. It happens all the time (cough... Cough... Alice in Wonderland... Cough). But sadly, there are plenty of times when a great movie takes a beating at the box office. These movies make up the most unfortunate cases.

The Top Ten

1 Citizen Kane

Didn't know , I'm stunned by this list. - Ananya


Wait, that movie was a flop?! - Pony

2 The Wizard of Oz
3 The Shawshank Redemption
4 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
5 It's a Wonderful Life
6 Blade Runner
7 Big Trouble in Little China

The Western world just wasn't ready for this in '86, but ask anyone who DID see it back then and they'll likely tell you it's a favourite. - truckturner
