10 Good TV Shows That Were Bad Movies
8. The Mod Squad (1999)
The series The Mod Squad ran from 1968-1973 to countless award wins and nominations, but it’s 1999 film adaptation starring Claire Danes, Giovanni Ribisi, and Omar Epps, did nothing but disappoint audiences, and even earned itself a nomination for a Razzie Award for Worst Screenplay. Roger Ebert shared in those sentiments and said, “The director, Scott Silver, co-wrote the script himself, and has to take some of the blame: This is a classy production and deserves better.” Ouch!
7. The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000)
This adaptation had the makings for a rocking remake, but somehow even with it’s awesome cast the story failed to wow audiences. The 1960s cartoon version that stuck around for countless years in syndication, was charming in its modernist imposition of crudely drawn animals, bad puns, and cheap production. The show seemed to be quite witty at times and appealed to audience members of any age. But the film, on the other hand, features computer animation blended with live action and looks more like a ridiculous parody that should have just left the classic relic alone.
