Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston consistently make poorly-rated films, yet audiences consistently turn out in droves to see their work.

But, against those odds, the film raked in $26 million its opening weekend. And, Sandler isn’t the only one, whose movies seem to be immune to bad reviews.
Aniston’s most recent Just Go With It (which also starred Sandler) made $103 million despite a 20% RottenTomatoes.com score.

And Ashton Kutcher holds the distinction of never having made a well-reviewed movie, but his films still bring in big bucks (What Happens in Vegas made $80.3 million and his most recent No Strings Attached brought in $70.7).
