The Biggest Turkeys of 2010 as Chosen by Forbes and You

As we approach the end of the year, you're going to begin to see all those end-of-year lists, featuring the best films, the worst films and everything in between. The first buzzed-about end-of-year list looks to have made its way online via Forbes, who absolutely love to crunch those box office numbers. And since its Thanksgiving week, said list just happens to revolve around this year's biggest turkeys, meaning which films earned the least amount of money back based on their initial budgets. Yeah, okay, so I guess just calling them "turkeys" is a whole lot more fun.

'Jonah Hex'Anyway, topping Forbes' list is Jonah Hex, which made back only 24% of its original budget. Other films on their list include CBS Films' Extraordinary Measures (made 48% back), Repo Men (56%), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (78%), Let Me In (85%), Splice (85%), MacGruber (93%), Green Zone (98%) and more. Check out Forbes' full list over here. The sad thing about that list is that Scott Pilgrim, Let Me In, Splice and MacGruber are all really fun movies to watch, and totally don't deserve to be on a list like this. Unfortunately, this list doesn't rate the quality of each film, only how much money it made.
 
Forbes' list made us curious over at Fandango headquarters to look back over the year to see which 10 films took home the worst user reviews, too, meaning these are the films Fandango Fanatics liked the least. In order…
 
1.  VAMPIRES SUCK
2.  CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE
3.  THE LAST AIRBENDER
4.  MARMADUKE
5.  THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE
6.  THE BACK-UP PLAN
7.  SKYLINE
8.  FURRY VENGEANCE
9.  JONAH HEX
10. PRINCE OF PERSIA
 
It's kinda funny to see Vampire's Suck at the top of the list considering how many Twilight fans we have out there. Good to know you Twi-hards don't just give any vampire spoof flick your blessing….other interesting points of note: You all put three films starring CGI animals on the list. Does that mean the whole CGI movie animal trend is beginning to fade? Should Yogi Bear be worried?
 
Check out both lists and let us know what you think.
