    Yeah, I agree. Costner would've helped the box office but Robbins ended up being perfect for the part.

    I can't lie. I liked First Wives Club. It was hilarious.

    I liked the actresses in the movie. They're some of my favs.

    I never really thought it was man-hating. To me, it was just a comedy. But I guess it could've been...if you're a man. It's not a movie I would've taken a date to see.

    I never said it was a horrible movie, just man-hating some :)

    I do like Goldie and Lane as actresses, see most of their movies.

    I used to know a guy that did special effects on that version so we went to a showing in Santa Monica before the public release. It was cool, it was just for people who worked on it and their families so the main people on the film were telling kids how their Dad had helped so much with yatta yatta. Fun time.

    When the movie started the place broke into huge applause, then family groups yelling whenever their name credit showed on the screen.

    Then the film broke. There an audible gasp, then laughter, then 200 conversations of some variation of "can you believe this?" with the screen a big blank white in front of us.

    Then a young boy started doing a shadow puppets in front of the projector, the shadow dog up on screen where Godzilla should be. It was freaking hilarious.

    Lots of good choices. Almost as fun as renting a good movie is renting bad ones just so you can sit there and ridicule them, like anything Keanu Reeves is in because he's a horrible actor and it's fun to imitate him while he's talking on screen.

    Four Weddings and a Funeral also came out in 1994. Good movie.

    I looked on Wikipedia. According to hit, Rob Reiner at one time wanted to direct Shawshank and cast Tom Cruise as Andy and Harrison Ford as Red. I'm glad that never panned out as Cruise would have been terrible.

    They also had more information on how much money the movie made.

    Box office

    The Shawshank Redemption received a limited release on September 23, 1994 in North America. During its opening weekend, the film earned $727,000 from 33 theaters—an average of $22,040 per theater. It received a wide release on October 14, 1994, expanding to a total of 944 theaters to earn $2.4 million—an average of $2,545 per theater—finishing as the number 9 film of the weekend.[1] The film left theaters in late November 1994, after 10 weeks with an approximate total gross of $16 million.[10]

    It was later re-released in February 1995, during the Oscar season, and made an additional $9 million.[10][not in citation given] In total the film made approximately $28.3 million in North American theaters, making it the number 51 highest grossing film of 1994 and the number 21 highest grossing R-rated film of 1994.[1]​

    These days they don't open multiple big movies at the same time like they used too. The studios want to be able to say hey look at us we have the #1 movie even if its a piece of crap.

    Terriffic movie year.

    I'd take Shawshank over Pulp Fiction and Gump, but I could see why someone could choose any of the three.

    I watched each of them several times.

    I didn't realize that 4 Weddings was that year too.
    I liked that movie too. It was funny (fairly clever), moving (the funeral speech) and very corny all rolled in one.
    It's 4th out of those four movies though, imo.

    I guess we're off-track here seeing that this is a worst movie thread.

    Not reading the whole thread, except the complete stupidity about how being anti- English Patient makes some in here feel manly or whatever.

    Has anyone said Battlefield Earth? The Room is simply the worst but as far as big production goes...

    I would think no one has mentioned Battlefield Earth because no one here has seen it, so it wouldn't be mentioned in worst movies you ever *saw*.

    i have seen lots of terrible movies.
    many were entertaining for being so bad.
    i can laugh at bad.
    battlefield earth? i can hilariously enjoy that waste of money while marveling over wack jobs who believe in that stuff. --any reference to wack jobs and a travolta film are completely unintentional so just carry on.

    two movies that drew rave reviews from many that i hated were the aforementioned english patient and ghost.

    it wasn't just that they were sappy chick flicks.
    it was that they were sappy, chick flicks on an estrogen drip with a large dose of downers mixed in.

    i literally fell asleep on the english patient and spent ghost looking at my girlfriends face as she sat unaware in some sort of weird chick stupor. it was like she was in some alternate universe.

    those two films were what i imagine hell to be. just watching that drivel on repeat.

    Maybe because nobody bothered to see it.

    But it should have been mentioned sooner!

    All I know is if Shawshank Redemption isn't included within your top 3 movies of all time, I'd like to be puffing what your puffing... It's so bad ***, I sometimes think I'd put it ahead of Braveheart at number 1. But then I see "You bled with Wallace... Now bleed with me..."

    And i'm in a conundrum again...
