‘Mars Needs Moms’ was the biggest film flop of 2011

How hard a movie flopped is determined by a film’s worldwide gross compared to its budget. “Mars” cost $150 million and made $39 million worldwide, THR said.

What is to blame for the film’s dismal performance? Well, maybe it just wasn’t very good. Sean O’Connell writing for The Washington Post gave the film three stars, but his positive opinion was in the minority. “Mars” only has a 36 fresh rating among top critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Sucker Punch” came in No. 2 on the list, perhaps because it was one of the top 10 pirated films of the year. The unnecessary remake “Arthur” came in third, and the disappointing superhero film “Green Lantern” came in fourth.

At least it produced a love connection between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, right?
