This weekend saw the invincible Jack Reacher defeated by... Madea? It was a bit surprising to see the latest Tyler Perry movie top the box office over a Tom Cruise action movie, but it's hardly the first time such a thing has happened. While it's usually fairly easy to predict which movie is going to win the box office, whether or not it's any good, every once in a while something crazy happens and an insane movie ends up taking home the crown.

Many of these are bad movies, movies so bad that there's no way people didn't know they were bad going in. Other are simply odd movies that you might expect to bring in some decent cash, but that would be unlikely films to become number one.

Kangaroo Jack

Kangaroo Jack

What it was up against: Martin Lawrence's National Security; Just Married with Brittany Murphy and Ashton Kutcher

How it won: It was a month after the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and so pretty much everybody had seen that one. It was a close thing between a Martin Lawrence comedy, especially on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend of 2003. Yet somehow, a movie about a kangaroo who steals $50,000 was able to squeeze out the win. We're going to chalk this up to it being the closest thing to a kids movie that was out during the long weekend.
