The same can be said for most Christian movies, most recently the massive wave of wide-released religious propaganda that followed the wake of ''God's not Dead'' and ''Heaven Is For Real'': ''Moms' Night Out'', a critically-panned Christian rom-com; ''Film/LeftBehind'', a critiaclly-panned Christian apocalyptic thriller based on the book and starring Creator/NicolasCage; ''Do You Believe'', a critially-panned Christian drama; ''WarRoom'', a militant Christian drama and ''Film/MiraclesFromHeaven'', a somewhat better-reviewed but still poorly-received Christian domestic drama. Poorer performers, however included ''The Identical'', a music-based Christian drama; the infamous, Razzie- winning ''Film/SavingChristmas'' and ''Woodlawn'', a Christian sports film, all which failed both critically and commercially. '''Well-reviewed Christian films do exist''', but tend to be better-made and less didactic.

* ''Film/GodsNotDead'', a Christian propaganda film chronicling a devoutly Christian college freshman's bout with a snide atheist professor, was pummeled by many secular movie critics and even some discerning Christian movie critics. Yet it grossed more than $60 million in the U.S., which is both very rare for a propaganda film (of any kind) and actually pretty remarkable given the film's shoestring budget of two million dollars. Released a mere few weeks later, ''Heaven is For Real'' made $91 million on a 12 million budget, seen by legions of religious Christians and starting a trend of poorly-made Christian propaganda films that cost remarkably little but were seen by very many right-wing, religious viewers who cared more about the films' values and messages than their quality.

* The mostly negative critical reviews for ''Film/TheHangover Part II'' didn't keep it from being hugely successful at the box office, largely due to good will from the critically-acclaimed original.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' is {{Creator/Pixar}}'s worst-reviewed animated film (currently in the below 40% range at Website/RottenTomatoes), but that hasn't stopped the film from making huge bucks at the box office (though it ''was'' Pixar's lowest-grossing movie at the box office). The {{WesternAnimation/Cars}} franchise managed to make a whopping [[CashCowFranchise ten billion dollars]] in merchandise, although they're still considered Pixar's weakest [[RedheadedStepchild works]].
* It seems like nothing can dent the fanbase of the ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' films -- critics dismissed them as mediocre, general animation fans dismissed them as mediocre, and wide audiences dismissed them as mediocre. However, the fanbase of the films is composed mostly of wolfaboos and furries. Given the undiscerning taste of both groups, it should probably come as little surprise that the series has four (DirectToVideo) sequels.

** ''Film/BadBoys II'', which Bay directed four years before ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', actually used all the same conventions. Critics hated it while the audience ate it up.

* ''Film/RockyIV'' was panned by critics upon its release and it even got about 9 razzie nominations including "Worst Picture", yet it didn't prevent to make over $300 million worldwide and become the most high-grossing Rocky film of all time.

* Critic James Berardinelli [[http://www.reelviews.net/php_review_template.php?identifier=725 used the trope name regarding]] ''Film/AlienVsPredator'', as the mere concept of two beloved cinematic monsters fighting for the first time will draw in audiences regardless of the film's quality.
