I agree it is the same with sports how is a family of 4 going to go out together?  It is cheaper to buy a xbox or some other game. Never liked black all his movies sucked. and most of the saturday night live crew movies suck. yes there are exceptions.

It is ridiculous to think of what these people are paid to make a 2 hr movie( which most of them nowadays is is less than), they are all overpaid.  As well as all of the  Athletes,  We pay ridiculous prices to get into a movie, game, concert or event, but it doesn't end there concession prices are out of this world $5.00 for a soft drink or hot dog that cost the owner maybe $0.50.  My wife and I took my 3 boys to a movie last weekend and the price of admission was $47.50, Popcorn and drinks another $44.50.  Almost $100.00 for a family of 5 to go to a movie, when I was a boy a family of 8 would go to a movie, have popcorn and drinks for less than $25.00.  That is why I am only able to take my family out to a movie or go to a game once or twice a year.  I don't even want to get started on the ridiculous amount of $ other things coat now because of celebrity endorcements.

Hollywood's most overpaid stars

No. 1: Poor Eddie Murphy desperately needs a comeback. Remember back in the day when he was so funny on "Saturday Night Live" and in movies like "Trading Places" and "Beverly Hills Cop"? His voice work has helped make movies like "Shrek" and "Mulan" tolerable for adults, and even his family-friendly movies, like "Norbit" and "Dr. Dolittle," were good for some chuckles. 

But lately, Murphy's career has just collapsed. "Imagine That," "A Thousand Words" and "Meet Dave" were colossal flops. Last year's "Tower Heist," which was supposed to be something of a return to form for the comedian, failed to wow at the box office, earning $153 million on an estimated budget of $75 million. (In order to even come close to turning a profit, a movie has to earn twice its production budget in ticket sales, plus the millions spent on marketing.) Murphy then backed out of hosting the Oscars, which didn't help his reputation.

His string of flops lands Murphy at the top of our Most Overpaid Actors list for 2012. We estimate that for every $1 Murphy was paid for his last three films, they returned an average of $2.30 at the box office.
