The Da Vinci Code
Directed by Ron Howard, the Da Vinci Code was released in 2006; it was the first Movie by Robert Langdon. The Movie was based on the novel Da Vinci Code, a drama, thrill, mystery, and conspiracy package. However, the Movie missed many of these elements and added unnecessary features instead.

Released in 2016, Suicide Squad was curated with high hope and expectation, thinking that the critics and audience would love seeing a group of villains fighting against another villain. The audience did love the Movie because of their favorite actors and characters; however, according to the critics, the Movie was not it should be.
The trailer of the Movie represented it as a dark, action, comedy movie while it was not. The tone of the Movie was fluctuating from beginning to end. Because of the same reason, the film failed to interest the audience and critics ultimately.
Released in 2010, Grown-ups has its story revolved around Adam Sander’s character trying to reunite with his old basketball team so that they all can together celebrate the fourth of July. If you think there might be more to the story, well, it was not. This Movie was one of those American comedies filled with little fun, comedy, and the same ending.

The Movie was still able to earn $258 million worldwide; however, according to the critics, the Movie’s pacing was too slow. They further added that in the time of 6 years, the builders of the Movie could have done more, but clearly, they failed.

So, if you dig more, you might find more such movies that were considered flop while they were not precisely flop.
