23 So-Called ‘Bombs’ That Were Wildly Successful

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Movies and shows tank all the time. It's just a side-effect of the industry. The thing is, some of the movies and shows that we think of as massive flops actually did startlingly well at the box office or in the ratings.

We asked our readers to dig into the data and prove that a lot of the flops we make fun of were actually incredibly successful. And we gave cash to our favorite entries.
