Heaven knows how this became the most successful Pink Panther film ever. Clearly, the hoards of kids who rushed to see it must have thought they were going to see a movie about a literal pink cartoon cat.
We are sure you can imagine the train wreck of a collaboration between Steve Martin and Beyonce. Stick to the Peter Sellers one. It’s a classic.
Piranha 3D (2010)
We admit, the original "Piranha" was NOT a masterpiece, which begs the question, why even bother with a remake at all? The gratuitous bikini shots are over the top and there is a bizarre underwater love scene that could have been cut.
At least Christopher Lloyd gives us some good entertainment.
The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008)
At least Keanu Reeves has a hard time convincing us that he is human here. It's not that bad though as he portrays a dead-pan alien. Still, the whole overwhelming CGI production totally tanks.
More chaos ensues when we watch Jennifer Connelly and Jaden Smith act terribly as mother and son.
The Women (2008)
Originally a 1930s screwball comedy, this remake attempted to focus on female representation. Unfrotaunetly it did so terribly. Awful writing, no original charm, and little artistic merit, this "upgrade" had little to offer.
Rom-com queen Meg Ryan seemed like a shoo-in for this role, but Annette Benning and Carrie Fisher? We're not sure how they got on board.
Total Recall (2012)
The original 1990 classic follows a construction worker and his disturbing dreams about life on Mars. The film's line between reality and fiction becomes increasingly blurred as he discovers the truth about who he really is.
The 2012 version scraps the Mars thing completely and gives us Colin Farrell and his VR experience as a secret agent on another planet in a dystopian future. Impressive production value but a weak sense of drama.
