Follow-up: 2012's Vomit Inducing Summer Movies

Since 2006 I've been preparing a "pre-summer vomit list" of films that just sound so awful that there's no justification (in my mind) based off premise, casting, or crew to even release the film in theaters.

StrangeCulture's 2012 list can be found here.

Of course, over the years, I've underestimated some eventual success stories, usually there's at least one.

Here's how my 12 movie's fared in terms of box office and critics rating (I'll use rottentomatoes.com for simplicity).

This year four of the 12 ended up having freshness reviews in the 70th percent (which makes them "certified fresh"). Of those films, one of them had a respectable boxoffice as well, which makes this year's underestimated film: Magic Mike.

RC's Pre-Summer Vomit List Ranked by US Domestic BoxOffice

2. That's My Boy - $36.9 million
