    Walter Mitty fails to live up to Stiller's other gems like Mystery Men and The Heart Break Kid coming in 7th place with $13 million


    Prior to this last visit to studio 69 Ben was last heard on Stern back in 2011 when he was promoting the mega bomb Tower Heist


    Congrats to Ben and Howard for moving the needle

    Come on: it's a Ben stiller movie. It was guaranteed to fail. No fair giving stern the credit.

    He might not be as popular but his movies rarely fail overall. His recent ones...

    Little Fockers- $310,000,000

    Tower Heist- $153,000,000

    Smithsonian 2- $411,000,000

    that was 153 world wide...

    it made $78 domestically with a

    $75 million budget and almost as much to promote it in commercials etc...

    hardly a hit

    Yeah I always take worldwide as the full profit. With DVD sales, pay downloads, On Demand sales, etc, I figure closer to $190,000,000 worldwide off a $75 mil budget is not that bad. I mean I agree Xavier, it's no runaway blockbuster or huge hit but his movies do turn decent profits for the studios I guess.

    Ben Stiller should never be a lead in any movie. He plays a great comic idiot as he did in Dodge Ball. Because when it comes down to it he isn't fun, funny or even mildly amusing.

    Agreed. Talentless and zero charisma. In every film he's in, he's the weakest link. Bob Barker was better than him in Happy Gilmore.
