The 4th of July isn't just a celebration of our nation's independence, it's also one of the biggest days of the year for movie releases. Some of the most beloved blockbusters of all time have premiered on this date, filled with memorable fight scenes, explosions and witty one-liners. Going to see a movie on Independence Day is practically a national past-time at this point.

But for every perfectly awesome July 4th movie memory, there is a cringe-worthy box-office disaster. Sometimes audiences are lucky enough to get a "Back to the Future," other years, they're doomed with "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.'

To celebrate the highs and lows of the holiday, Moviefone presents a very special look at the best and worst 4th of July movie releases ever.
