Famous names: Kevin Costner

Crunchy goodness: 1


Bang for your buck: One of the most expensive SF flops of all time, Waterworld racked up the expenses when the floating city was destroyed by a tropical storm and had to be entirely rebuilt.

Most painfully dated moment: The idea that Kevin Costner could be an action hero is what truly marks this as a movie that could only have been made in the 1990s.

The shit: The film is laughably bad, which means it's one of those rarities where bad = good. Plus, the eco-disaster theme is remarkably prescient, and the boat city is actually kind of cool.
