Based on the A.V. Club Web site column, "My Year of Flops" is head writer Rabin''s romp through the most notorious movies in cinematic history.
Annotation:
Nathan Rabin has produced thousands of words of witty film criticism during his tenure with the Onion A.V. Club. One project the wise man undertook was a year-long investigation into movies that flopped: requirements for inclusion in Rabin's column included being a critical and commercial failure, as well as possessing some modicum of cult following and encouraging the proliferation of clichéd one-liners. From Roman Polanski's WHAT? to John Travolta's misbegotten SF vehicle BATTLEFIELD EARTH; from Ellen DeGeneres's MR.WRONG to the Iraq War satire WAR, INC.--Rabin covers this scorched territory like the expert that he is, designating each movie as either a "Failure," a "Fiasco," or a "Secret Success." And as A.V. Club readers know, Rabin's writing is relentlessly snide, resoundingly funny, and remarkably astute.

Praise

"Many of the entries follow a familiar pattern: Rabin battles his own incredulousness at just how bad a particular movie is...only to come to the endearing if perverse conclusion that he genuinely likes it, flaws and all. His cheerful lack of snobbery is the book's greatest attribute." - Stephanie Zacharek 10/24/2010
