10 Times Great Comedians Made Movies That Were Anything But Funny

- Page 1

There have been plenty of comedians throughout the years that, even though their material might be decades old, have managed to make us laugh uproariously every time we see them. Sometimes people just need a paycheck though, and in the case of these 10 comedians, it led to some genuinely funny people doing some genuinely unfunny movies.

Richard Pryor - Superman III

The first two Superman movies are genuine classics, and so is Richard Pryor's extensive comedy career. However, the combination of the two of them gave us one of the worst superhero movies ever.

Dana Carvey - The Master of Disguise

Carvey is legitimately funny, but this movie about him doing silly voices in stupid costumes is anything but.

Eddie Murphy - The Adventures of Pluto Nash

After classics like Beverly Hills Cop and The Nutty Professor, Eddie Murphy's Hollywood output just got worse and worse, leading him to star in this horrible sci-fi movie.

Tom Green - Freddy Got Fingered

The crazy Canuck gave us some legendary moments like "The Bum Bum Song" and his roles in movies like Road Trip, but his big starring debut is one of the most bizarrely unfunny movies ever made.

These next few comedians are legitimately funny but did some pretty awful movies...

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and


Edward Furlong Was A Rising Star, But His Life Took A Drastic Turn That's Left Him Unrecognizable

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe


The Preview For The New 'Grinch' Movie Is Out And We Can't Decide How Angry To Be

Listen, I get it, remakes are easy money. You've got a built-in audience who will try to support it no matter what, but there comes a time when enough is enough right? Sure, the Jim Carrey version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas was already a remake of the original cartoon that we all grew up with, but then we had both. One perfect cartoon that gave us the exact telling of the book, and then one amazingly hilarious live-action version that expands the world we already loved. That was enough though. One of each. Live-action, perfect. Cartoon, classic. That's
