January Movies That Flopped

January is a notoriously awful month for movie releases. As our attention and Hollywood's turns to the Oscar-worthy films of 2012, the studios continue to release movies that will probably be long-forgotten by next year's awards season.

This January was no exception. The most recent flop: "Movie 43," an ensemble comedy that has been blasted with negative reviews for a host of shortcomings. And not even its star-studded cast -- Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Greg Kinnear and Dennis Quaid, to start -- could save it.
