This thread made me look it up, it was SOOOOOOOOOO bad it never was released on video......HOWEVER I see that it was put out on DVC in late 2011. Wonder what prompted them to put out a DVD of a flop film nearly 40 years later.
That reminded me of event horizon.

Pretty good sci fi and horror cross. Not for the faint of heart though.

It's a Wonderful Life (1939) was a box office flop. I love it.

I love that the little girl in the movie grew up to be in
Napoleon Dynamite, one of my other favorites.

DH and I saw GalaxyQuest tonight. Not sure if it was a flop but I groaned when he said he got it from Netflix. But it was so funny!

But you're right, it did not do well at the box office.

Stepford Wives from 2004. I actually paid money in theaters and loved it. I bought it on dvd. I still watch it a few times a year. Labyrinth did not do nearly as well in theaters, but I love it!

I loved "Christmas with the Kranks." It was full of visual cues that related to the movie but you wouldn't notice on the first time round.

I don't know if any of these were true flops (mostly low budget stuff), but all have big names (some before they were big), none of them were huge hits, and I like them all:

Fandango (Kevin Costner, Judd Nelson)

Last of the Dogmen (Tom Berenger, Barbara Hershey)

American Flyers (Kevin Costner, Rae Dawn Chong, Alexandra Paul, John Amos, Jennifer Gray)

Indian Summer (Alan Arkin, Diane Lane, Bill Paxton, Elisabeth Perkins, Kevin Pollak, Julie Warner, Kimberly Williams-Paisley)

Shoot To Kill (Sidney Poitier, Tom Berenger, Kirstie Alley)

I loved Battleship, too!

I also really enjoyed Waterworld and The Postman.
