These are movies that "flopped" at the box office (i.e. made less money than was spent to make them). Some were spectacular flops, and some only barely missed making it out of the red. However, I really liked them all. Usually, financial flops that people like are labelled "underrated" or "cult classics." You'll find some of those here. You'll also find some "overrated" films or films critics thought were just "bad," and not deserving of the little money they did make. I'll be interested to know your reactions and thoughts. Without further ado, they are here listed, the top 10 sneaky-good flops of the '00s.
#10 Le Pacte des Loups (2001)
Christophe Gans directed this piece of eye candy (released as The Brotherhood of the Wolf in the U.S.) and did not skimp. Every dollar of the $29 million budget is on the screen. The film is beautiful, the colors pop, and the action is pretty freakin' great. In a wise move, Mark Dacascos (Iron Chef America's "Chairman") was given no lines. Le Pacte des Loups grossed a meager $11 million, less than half of what was spent to make it.
