9. Evan Almighty
Bruce Almighty was a highlight in Jim Carrey’s career, topping the box office for weeks on initial release. However, its sequel, 2007’s Evan Almighty, left out one vital component: Jim Carrey.
Steve Carell took over the leading role in Evan Almighty, and the film had a budget of $175 million, the highest ever recorded for a comedy movie. Much of this was spent on animals, set construction and visual effects. Unfortunately, the film didn’t make the same splash as its predecessor – making $173 million worldwide, Evan Almighty failed even to recoup production costs.
