Criticism

The critics began mercilessly deriding the movie upon news of its making, and the movie was the box office bomb they predicted (grossing a mere $5,000,000) despite its association with the popular television show. In an interesting twist, theater chains threatened not to show it at all when distributor 20th Century Fox—in a similar move to the rushed production of the film to capitalize on Idol's popularity—announced plans to rush the movie to VHS and DVD a mere six weeks after its opening weekend. Conceding to theater owners, Fox pushed the scheduled video date back a number of months. When the movie tanked in its first weekend of theatrical release, Fox reinstated the original VHS and DVD release schedule. Cleopatra is the biggest box-office bomb of all time. ...

Clarkson's already rising musical career was unaffected by the movie's failure, but Guarini's was hurt as the movie's bad buzz coincided with the release of his long delayed debut album.
