The award for first place (and for perhaps the most unwanted title, second only to a Razzie), goes to Eddie Murphy. Before you start listing SNL and Beverly Hills Cop as contradictory proof, get a load of this stat: For every $1 Murphy earned for his past three flicks, they returned an average of $2.30 at the box office — a measly margin for the Tower Heist star. Ouch. Not far behind are Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, and SJP. Yes, these women are some of the most talented and highest-earning folks in Tinseltown, but their recent blockbusters blindsided producers and straight-up bombed.
From the hunky (Denzel Washington), to the hilarious (Adam Sandler), click here to catch a glimpse of the final tally. And, if you've seen any of the films cited, let us know if you would've rather saved the $12.75 and watched via Netflix (or not at all). (Forbes)
