Hard to believe but Sonny Bonno and Julia Louis-Dreyfus were in this as well.

Jon Stewart says quite candidly that he sucked in "Death to Smoochy."

Christopher Plummer (yes, Captain Von Trapp) was really annoyed with "The Sound of Music." He referred to it as "The Sound of Mucus." (I think he's warmed to it over the years though).

George Clooney offered to personally refund people who spent money to see "Batman and Robin."

And who could forget Tim Curry and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"? He really, really, really doesn't want to be known for that film. Unfortunately, he is.
Yes, Christopher Plummer has somewhat reversed his opinion on SOM in the decades since. He and Julie Andrews participated in some of the DVD extras, I know.

No prob..

While we're on Troll there are two films; Troll and Troll 2. The second one is completely unrelated to the original but they marketed it under the title Troll to attract an audience; something I don't think can be as easily done today.

No big names of any kind appeared in Troll 2. The cast mainly were locals from Utah with little to absolutely no acting; consisting of dentists and grocery store clerks.

Nevertheless, when it came to DVD both movies were released as a double feature which I own.

*There has been word for a while that Troll is going to be remade but its status is unknown.

I also remember back in 1998 Neve Campbell didn't go to the 54 premiere and it was rumored that she regretted doing the movie after seeing a final cut.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is not too impressed about his 1985 film Red Sonja.

In an old interview he had this to say about the film "It's the worst film I have ever made. Now, when my kids get out of line, they're sent to their room and forced to watch Red Sonja ten times. I never have too much trouble with them."

He was also bitter at the time about being given top billing when he was actually the secondary character. Red Sonja was played by Brigitte Nielsen and she was second to Arnold.

He tells U.S. TV chat show host Jon Stewart, "There was a time when I'd go into Blockbusters and if they had a film of mine on the shelf I used to throw it under the counter. They would always be back there next time."
-IMDB News
Hey, I remember Daniel Craig when he was in A Kid in King Arthur's Court!. (I'll bet that's one of the ones he hid.) He actually played the romantic hero opposite, if you can believe it, Kate Winslet!

Probably. I know he wrote it for Andre the Giant, whom he met during The Princess Bride. Of course, Andre died long before the film could be made.

People have to start somewhere right? Very few are lucky to start off with well-received blockbusters.

The '80s may have been a bad time for KISS, but they were even worse if you watched Gene Simmons try to act in a movie. Gene, stick to sticking your tongue out, please...
