1999: Adjusted Domestic Gross: $461,784,600
This movie has Bruce Willis and a line, “I see dead people,” that has stuck around for over a decade. That’s the plus side of the ledger. On the other hand, the big problem with this movie is that it all hinges on one of M. Night Shyamalan’s famous twists which most people in the audience will figure out 15 minutes into the movie. So, you sit through an hour and a half of the movie going, “What I think is going to happen better not be it. If it is, I’m going to be totally disappointed.” In other words, this is a run-of-the-mill horror flick that made more than 450 million dollars. How that happened is actually more of a mystery than how Shyamalan’s horrific The Happening, which featured ordinary trees and grass as the villains, managed to get green-lighted.
