Critics say: "The Paperboy bears some promise as a good-bad movie, but it unfolds as a bad-bad one." —Peter Howell, Toronto Star
What makes it a flop: Despite all the hype — this is, of course, the movie where Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron — The Paperboy was panned by critics and largely ignored by audiences. The A.V. Club rated it the worst movie of the year.
Silver lining: Kidman's performance earned praise; she was even nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
