For a fun comparison, thereís Dolittle: sure, it grossed over $20M domestic in its first weekend, and went past $40M by the end of the second and $50M by the end of the third; but thatís nothing, that plus $100M overseas would still be a flop even without factoring in the advertising; how many Islands could you make for the cost of one Dolittle?
