When a movie uses the name Alan Smithee instead of the real director, it doesn't mean he wishes to disassociate him/herself from the movie because it's bad. In fact, that CANNOT do that.
The only way a director can do it, is to prove that they no longer have creative direction over the film, due to one reason or another - usually political reasons within the film's money suppliers. Too much interference.
The change has to be approved by the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
See the wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Smithee Now, this doesn't mean the movie is bad. In fact, it's possible that the original director was making such a bad movie that people had to intervene, and he/she didn't want to hear it. It's possible that the movie may have been much worse. Or better. We can't know.
