Movie Postmortems is a series that reviews certain films which showed promise but misfired, critically and/or commercially, upon release. Join us in our attempt to find out exactly what the hell happened.
THE CASUALTY: The Holiday
THE CASE HISTORY: December 2000. What Women Want, the Mel Gibson-Helen Hunt romantic comedy, opens big and rakes in over $33 million (about $55 million today) in its first weekend. It ultimately grosses $182 million (almost $300 million now) domestically, and $374 million (almost $600 million today) globally. This massive sucess makes What Women Want the most financially successful romantic comedy up until that point in time, taking the title away from Pretty Woman which scored the crown ten years prior in 1990.
