Uh, not as badly as you'd think. While "Chronicles of Riddick" did poorly, it's worldwide gross ($116M) made it basically break even, and good DVD sales helped. The other two of his last three were relatively low budget (especially "knockaround guys" which was -very- low budget) The Pacifier had a budget of $55M, and is already over $65M, not counting any international grosses, and it will likely top $90M or so. Counting in DVD sales, a fairly profitable little venture. Not saying he's a gigantic star, but definitely saying he isn't "box office poison".. That having been said, the Pacifier was a passable, by the numbers kind of film with a few pretty funny moments.. and, as to those that referenced the Ice Cube film (which right now I have in my "years worst" list) I can say it's nowhere near that bad. Not even close. That movie is evil; the kids in that movie aren't just prankster-ish, they are satan incarnate.. and it's not funny.
