> Starring: Dave Sheridan, Cameron Richardson, Randy Quaid, Dolly Parton
Overzealous insurance agent Frank McKlusky (Dave Sheridan) must break free from his risk-averse lifestyle when his partner is killed in the line of duty. So goes this tasteless comedy, which tries — and fails — to capture the same energy as movies like “Ace Ventura.”
4. Mr. Wrong (1996)
> IMDb rating: 3.9
> Rotten tomatoes audience score: 26
> Worldwide ticket sales, adjusted for inflation: $26.5 million
> Starring: Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Pullman, Joan Cusack, Dean Stockwell
A nadir of the “crazy lover” sub-genre, this dark comedy depicts the ill-fated romance between a desperate woman (Ellen DeGeneres) and a mysterious man (Bill Pullman). What seems like love at first sight takes a dark turn when the man reveals himself to be a bona fide sociopath. DeGeneres would later poke fun at the film on her daytime talk show.

> IMDb rating: 4.0
> Rotten tomatoes audience score: 24
> Worldwide ticket sales, adjusted for inflation: $57.7 million
> Starring: Leslie Nielsen, Kelly Lynch, Matt Keeslar, Nick Chinlund
A clumsy cartoon character gets the live-action treatment in this slapstick comedy, starring Leslie Nielsen in the title role. In his absurd and unwitting manner, Mr. Magoo outmaneuvers government agents and scheming jewel thieves.
2. Shadow Conspiracy (1997)
> IMDb rating: 5.0
> Rotten tomatoes audience score: 18
> Worldwide ticket sales, adjusted for inflation: $4.3 million
> Starring: Charlie Sheen, Donald Sutherland, Linda Hamilton, Stephen Lang
Shot on an estimated budget of $37 million, this political thriller opened to terrible reviews and dismal box office numbers. It stars Charlie Sheen as presidential aide Bobby Bishop, who’s in a race against time to stop a deadly assassin.
1. Kazaam (1996)
> IMDb rating: 3.0
> Rotten tomatoes audience score: 20
> Worldwide ticket sales, adjusted for inflation: $39.1 million
> Starring: Shaquille O’Neal, Francis Capra, Ally Walker, James Acheson
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal plays a 5,000-year-old genie named Kazaam in this famous flop. Chock-full of tone-deaf stereotypes and rote cliches, the film is somehow even worse in retrospect. Shaq went on to headline the superhero flick “Steel” before calling it quits on his career as a leading man.
