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...

11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'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
