Good movies are overlooked all the time. It's sad, but it happens. Perhaps the production just doesn't secure the means to play on enough screens or maybe it's the fault of the film's PR team. No matter who or what is to blame, it's a shame to see a good movie go unrewarded, but the absolute travesty is when a hunk of big studio garbage is rewarded when it fails to deliver anything of value.

Yes, we have had our fair share of impressive productions that rightfully earned hefty domestic box office hauls like 'Toy Story 3' and its $414.3 million, 'Inception' and its $312.1 million and 'How to Train Your Dragon' and its $217.6 million, but the list of the year's top earners is largely populated by films that just weren't very good. 'Alice in Wonderland' made for a fine trip to the theater, but did it really deserve to cross the $1 billion mark worldwide? And what about 'Shrek Forever After?' It might have been better than the franchise's third installment, but it certainly doesn't deserve its $238.4 domestic earnings.

There's no use in crying over the unfair distribution of cash, but when we've got both 'The Last Airbender' and 'Grown Ups' arriving on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, the issue is impossible to dismiss. So, in honor of two unworthy earners moving onto a stage in which they'll likely make even more money, here are the seven most undeserving moneymakers of the past three years. (As sad as it is, without a time restriction, it'd be impossible to contain this list to just seven choices.)
