Film: The Adventures of Pluto Nash

Notoriously unsuccessful Eddie Murphy vehicle that attempted to combine a Rat Pack-esque plot with sci-fi. Murphy plays Pluto Nash, owner of a successful nightclub on the moon, when goons from aspiring entrepreneur Rex Crater come to buy the club. When Pluto refuses he's forced to go on the run to survive and unravel the truth of who Rex Crater is and what he's planning for the moon.

Cost an insane amount of money to make, made none of it back. To this day, Eddie Murphy and Alec Baldwin have disowned the film and it's considered one of the biggest flops in cinema.
