George Clooney knew what he was talking about when he said: " You cannot make a good film out of a bad script. You can make a bad film out of a good script - easily. I've seen that happen before, but you can't do it the other way around." Look at Box Office Mojo's list of the highest grossing films of all-time. There are a handful of noticeable exceptions like the Transformers films but for the most part that list is dominated by highly acclaimed films: Avatar, Titanic, The Avengers, The Dark Knight.

Yes, a fair amount of them might go see the latest Adam Sandler movie too, but your movie will ALWAYS make more money of its good than it would have if it were mediocre.

Tom Cruise?

I would not include Tom Cruise among Will Smith, Johnny Depp, or Adam Sandler when it comes to disappointing studio blockbuster this year, I mean Oblivion was a bonafide hit for the Cruise man.
