    "Roy Schneider"? That kind of mispronounciation of such a legendary actor's name is unforgivable for a professional production of cinematic history.

    I'm surprised that there's such hatred for Cat in the Hat, I always thought that people viewed it as just a silly little Mike Myers film from their childhood like I do. Comparing it to the Grinch it definitely is the weaker film, but I'm not sure what about it warrants such a deep hatred for it.

    I'm thinking Mike Myers was smart enough to pretend that he didn't want to do Cat In The Hat. End up doing the film, and fullfill his contract.

    The cat in the hat is a favorite of my sons. I'm glad Myers did it. So narrator guy you are wrong in your assessment of the movie as most of the comments seem to be in agreement and critics , well critics are as irrelevant as the "EXPERTS" that give their opinions on outcomes of elections.....

    I own Theodore Rex and honestly if she tried it wouldn’t have been oh so bad. You can tell she isn’t playing much of a part. The story was shit but an over all fun film for kids if you aren’t a helicopter mom who insist her child see no death or violence.... I mean it’s Dinosaurs for Christ sake.. what kid doesn’t love dinosaurs

    You missed 2016 Ghostbusters! Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigorney Weaver and Annie Potts all didn't want to be apart of it, but were legally forced into it. I don't know if Annie didn't want to be apart of it, but I do know that the rest didn't want any part of it. That is why there's going to be a Ghostbusters 3 in the works.

    a lot of these films are horrible, but to me the biggest box office flop that comes to mind if gigli with ben affleck and jennifer lopez. it hard to get through. also interesting to learn that emily blunt was almost black widow....not sure it would have been the same had she played the role.

    This is why there needs to be an agency clause in either all contracts or added to our US constitution. The legal action these studios throw on to the actors is ridiculous. It’s almost like being held hostage in order to perform. The studio is free to bail on a picture at any time, but the actor is not and that, to me, violates the spirit of being a free human being. Yeah, technically they can still walk away and be forced to pay a hefty legal fine, but with a fine being that gross, it’s practically financially binding someone into servitude. Everyone deserves a clean escape from a contract when they feel it is something they no longer want to be apart of.

    My dad worked in the animation department on the Garfield movies, and was actually asked at one point to talk to Bill Murray to get him to loosen up a bit on the project. He turned down the offer, though, because he didn't want his childhood hero Bill Murray to see him as some corporate Hollywood scumbag.
