* The live-action ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' movies (the latter three in particular) have received nothing but hate from most critics. That hasn't stopped either from being huge successes... at least until the last one was scheduled for the same release date as ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.

** ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' was internationally the highest-grossing film of 1998 against a backdrop of mediocre-to-frosty reviews from critics, though it seems largely forgotten now.
** ''Film/BadBoysII'', which Bay directed four years before ''Film/{{Transformers}}'', actually used all the same conventions. Critics hated it while the audience ate it up.

And then it dropped massively in its second weekend, and its domestic gross turned out to be around 130 million]]. [[FromBadToWorse And then it dropped 82% in China]]... something that is unheard of mediocre-to-frosty reviews even from critics, though it seems largely forgotten now.the most front-loaded releases in that country.

* ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' has received very mixed reviews, its story in particular, being a SoOkayItsAverage ClicheStorm. This hasn't stopped it from being amazingly successful.

The series' highest Rotten Tomatoes rating was the 49% received by ''Eclipse''. This didn't stop the films from being unusually consistent box office hits - all four sequels grossed between $300-$280 million domestically and ranked in the top ten films of the year.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/SpiderMan has been featured a ''lot'' of bad stories in recent years. ''ComicBooks/MaximumCarnage'' was pretty bad, the ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'' was universally reviled, ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' was crucified by critics and fans alike, and ''ComicBook/SpiderManChapterOne'' is one of those stories even Marvel has insisted [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain they never speak of again]]. Despite is all, Spidey still remains Marvel's mascot and biggest cash cow, something that likely won't change anytime soon.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' grossed $101 million in its first weekend, the third-widest opener of all time, despite highly polarized reviews (Roger Ebert and Leonard Maltin liked it, most other big name critics did not.)

The same can be said for most Christian movies, such as 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 critically-panned Christian apocalyptic thriller based on the book and starring Creator/NicolasCage; ''Do You Believe'', a critially-panned Christian drama; ''Film/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/AssassinsCreed2016'' has generally received bad reviews. One of the most positive called it "the best video game movie ever" and acknowledged that this was a backhanded compliment. Yet it made 60.5 million more than its budget of 125 million within a month despite opening within a week of ''Film/RogueOne''.
