Producers and the heads of movie studios love to think that they know better than everyone else, and while their shady interference tactics frequently do result in ridiculous profits, this is often at the creative expense of the end product.
Moreover, it’s a short-sighted way of conducting business, because if you screw us over once, you’re not going to get our repeat business for the sequels.

It’s just that so often they don’t seem to have art in mind at all, and as a result, these 10 promising movies were dragged through the mud, ripped to pieces and then put back together, the end result being widely derided by audiences and critics.
