    These figures seem a little misleading because they don't include marketing budgets and overseas box office numbers.

    Alexander was pretty bad. I felt for my friend Oliver Stone ("Call me Oli"), cause I really like him.

    I will always like Bill Cosby for actually showing up to accept his Razzie for Leonard Part 6.

    I was pissed. He made a boring movie about Alexander the Great. He deserved to be shamed for it.

    I waited years for a movie about Alexander the Great and got that crap. Arg.

    Yes, you'd think with all the historical accuracy sacrificed, he'd at least manage 'entertaining'. No such luck.

    I saw it at an Athens cinema, and the audience was just howling with laughter, especially whenever Angelina and her Sesame Street accent were onscreen.

    I believe they just deny that it tanked and accuse you of being an SP if you say otherwise.

    Or Tofu Tommy tells you you're too glib to understand it. Only he understands the history of Battlefield Earth.

    Battlefield Earth has got to be the WORST movie ever made. Or at least in the top ten. It's way into 'so bad it's good' territory.
