Ishtar 1986

From Amazon: At the time of its release in 1987, this Elaine May production was bandied about as one of the worst films of the decade. It was nominated for three Razzie Awards that year--Worst Picture, Screenplay, Direction--but it still was not the nadir detractors claimed it to be. (Remember, that was the year Norman Mailer's self-indulgence spilled all over the screen in Tough Guys Don't Dance.) If this comedy had been made by unknowns, it would have simply faded into the obscurity it deserves. The fuss came about because May squandered much talent and a ridiculously large budget, rumored to exceed $40 million, returning less than half of that...

Ishtar Movie Review by BillyJean (9/8/2009)

Well, Darlings -

With a whopping budget of $55 million and starring Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman, Ishtar really should've been the funniest goddamn comedy of the decade. It really should've.

But, alas -

As it turned out - Ishtar flopped, big time, ultimately being one of the dreariest and most idiotic comedies...
