On that note, here are just a few of the ones I enjoyed a lot, but either they didn't do too well on the box office, or the critics just hated them.
1) Jem and the Holograms
I guess it's because I've never seen the original TV series, so I really had nothing to compare this to. As a teeny-bopper movie, I think it stands on its own. I loved the songs, the cast, the hair, makeup and costumes...I just plain loved this movie! It was entertaining, and as a mom with young kids, I can watch this without having to worry about swear words:D

This Adam Sandler movie was also just great fun to watch. I'm an Adam Sandler fan, so I think everything he does is just funny. And c'mon! Peter Dinklage was just hilarious, and so was Josh Gad. Plus, Pac Man as a villain?!?! That's just gold!

3) Pacific Rim
Guillermo del Toro always directs such great movies, so I don't know why his movies don't get as much $$$ in the box office here in North America. Good thing this movie made money worldwide! It's seriously awesome, you guys, so watch it if you like anything with robots and big monsters.
(PS My middle child ranks this movie as one of his all-time faves. Like mother, like son:D)

4) Hansel And Gretel:Witch Hunters
With this title, I don't know why people expected anything else but just a fun and campy action movie. As you can guess, it's a take on the fairy tale, but yeah....not really....you have grown up Hansel and Gretel fighting witches after what happened to them as kids. Adventure ensues!

A much-darker version of the Stallone movie, and loads better. Lena Headey was also the best villain. Love her!
How about you? Are there movies you liked that everyone else seems to hate?
