 Celebs Who Disappeared After A Giant Movie Flop


For people of a certain age, Michael Keaton was Cable Dad. He made so many great movies in the ’80s and early ’90s, and they pretty much all ran on cable constantly. TBS, HBO, WGN, and USA thrived for years thanks to relentless airings of Night Shift, Mr. Mom, Gung Ho, Clean and Sober, Johnny Dangerously, Beetlejuice, and the first two Batman movies. As the ’90s wore on, Keaton’s output slowed a bit. Sure, there was stuff like Multiplicity and Jackie Brown, but then in 1998, Jack Frost. 



Pitched as a family holiday movie, this weird film starred Keaton as a bad dad who dies in a car accident … and then returns to life as a creepy snowman to make amends with his son. Special effects in 1998 weren’t what they are today, so while the snowman has the comforting voice of Michael Keaton, it has the face of a hideous arctic beast. It somehow cost $85 million to make Jack Frost, and it earned a mere $34.5 million at the box office. That spelled the end for the Age of Keaton. He didn’t appear in a movie for two years, and when he did, it was the little-seen 2000 soccer drama A Shot at Glory.
