I calculated all of these flops by typing “biggest box office flops” into Google and clicking on Wikipedia. Then I looked at the formula used, total worldwide box office gross divided by 2 and then subtract the production budget, and it seemed legit. Now let’s point fingers, laugh, and remember that everyone has a bad day at work every once in a while.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
