Poll: Michael Jackson is 'king of flop'

May 22, 2004 at 4:23 PM

LOS ANGELES, May 22 (UPI) -- Most Americans say Michael Jackson is the king of flop and think couple Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore will break up, according to an online poll.

The survey also found many expect Jennifer Lopez's upcoming summer film "Shall We Dance?" to be a "Gigli"-sized disaster, but predict her ex-fiance and two-time co-star, Ben Affleck, will soon enjoy a comeback in his career.

Voters declared a three-way tie between "Ishtar," "Waterworld" and "Howard the Duck" for the biggest big-screen flop of all time, and recognized Mariah Carey as the singer who made the worst transition to film in the big-screen bomb, "Glitter."

The poll was conducted by Star magazine and cable network TRIO on behalf of the channel's June "FLOPS!: The Great Failures" month, which celebrates unforgettable pop culture failures.

In June, TRIO will present two original documentaries: "Flops 101: Lessons from the Biz," which explores cancelled TV series, blockbuster duds and Broadway meltdowns, and "Final Cut: The Making of 'Heaven's Gate' and the Unmaking of a Studio."

More than 1,200 people participated in the on-line poll, which was conducted from April 23 to May 10.
