    I have never seen anything review so poorly, ever:

    http://www.metacritic.com/movie/united-passions

    "Three men—Jules Rimet (Gérard Depardieu), Joao Havelange (Sam Neill) and Sepp Blatter (Tim Roth)—establish FIFA and help make the World Cup the most popular sporting event in the world."

    Could it be the next "The Room" or are people just venting their anger at one of the most openly corrupt sports organizations on the planet?

    Either way... :grin:

    EDIT: sorry, it's not new but it was new to me and newly on the first page of Metacritic. Apparently, it cost about $20M to make and they make $170k in one year world wide, allegedly $600 in the US. LOL.

    EDIT 2: Yes, I did a search of Hangout and also "Other Sports" or whatever.

    You can probably spend $40 million on a film but not make a cent if you don't spend any on advertising or payola interviews and blog reviews. They probably cut their losses and before shelling any of that cash out.
