Freddy Got Fingered - Man, I got snookered by critics and movie-goers alike....into not seeing it for many years after it came out. Much respect to Tom Green for doing Tom Green.
I agree

scarface got a very poor reception by critics when it came out, now its an all time classic.

rounders was a great film but wasn't really a hit till it went to dvd

fight club also got panned by critics who just saw it as a violent movie and not the multi dimensional story it evolved into.

Lost World - Jurassic Park - dunno why people shit on this, I thought it was a great sequel (minus gymnastics/Raptor kick scene). Plus we got two T-Rexes in this one - TWO!!!!!!!

Last Action Hero - another one that got shat on. The kid is annoying sure, but Arnie enjoys taking the piss outta himself.

Not Another Teen Movie - doesn't seem to get highly rated, but it's one of my favourite spoofs of all time

Got to be the 3rd Resident Evil film, Most Zombie fans liked the first 2 but hated the 3rd, I thought the first 2 were just ok but the 3rd was dumb but enjoyable - thats the one with the convoy in the desert.

Definitely John Carter (of Mars). Movie was better than most sci-fi films around the same time. Liked it better than any of the Star Wars prequels and all the rest of the same space fantasy ones . Got fucking roasted by critics and nobody went to go see it. Shame, that movie was fun as fuck. I was wishing they would have come out with a sequel but meh.

I feel like those 2 technically shouldn't count because although their original reception was poor they're basically universally regarded as great movies now.

The Incredible Hulk. The one with Ed Norton. Saw that in the cinema when it came out and thought it was one of the better superhero films. Was surprised to find out that it's considered one of the worst of the Marvel films. The fight between the Hulk and the other monster thing was good fun.

I'll give a mention to the other Hulk film with Eric Bana. Haven't seen it in years and I still don't really know what the fuck was going on but that chase through the desert/canyon was fuckin brilliant.

I felt the exact same way about that one - in fact, I actually thought it was an improvement over the 2nd film in the series.

Has anyone mentioned Big Trouble in Little China yet? It was a critical and commercial disaster upon its release, but has since received recognition by many as the epic action film parody that it is.

K-Pax.

Not very well rated by critics at all...41% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I think it's great. Really original, well acted and easy to watch. The storyline has you flipping on what you think has happened until the end.

iron man with the mandarin, maybe was number 2.
ok, i get that it's a tease to have the mandarin but it's not the mandarin. but that's why it worked imo, so many of the marvel movies take no risks and just serve up the expected.

also the original fantastic 4 film, the silver surfer scenes were fucking amazing and the fantastic 4 are pretty shit characters/stories in any medium imo.

cruising - the pacino film about a serial killer in new york gay clubs. it's regarded as embarassing and pacino refuses to talk about it, i thought it was a really good police film
