Everyone loves a good Hollywood comeback story, but for every Mickey Rourke and Robert Downey Jr. there’s several stars who haven’t bounced back quite as successfully. Here are 15 attempted comebacks that missed the mark with most audiences.

After an appearance in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete failed to bring the trouble actress back to the big screen, Lindsay Lohan took a role in the high-profile Lifetime movie Liz and package. The film chronicled the troubled marriage of Elizabeth Taylor (Lohan) to fellow actor Rich Burton (Grant Bowler). Despite solid ratings, the film was torn to shreds by critics and audiences alike.

    Liz and PACKAGE??? Are you guys using AutoCorrect on your word processors? From the looks of your text, you might want to abandon AutoCorrect and start grammar checking instead.

    Actually Harrison Ford became a star from Star Wars, not from Indiana Jones.

    Charlie Sheen’s failed comeback? you must be kind of stupid. he JUST came from a 9-year run as TV’s highest paid actor and his very next show is picked up for 90 episodes.

    1) there’s no comeback to be made here
    2) where’s the failure?

    Say what you want about Nick Cage, but “Drive Angry” is an under-appreciated gem. It’s the best 70’s drive-in exploitation film you’ve never seen, with a very smart script (the guy who comes back from Hell is named “John Milton”) and an incredibly funny supporting performance by William Fichtner.

    Ummmm…James Woods?
    He attempted a comback with a tv series which barely lasted. In films, his name isn’t even on the poster because NO ONE remembers him.

    so because Anger Management isn’t as popular as his previous show which was arguably the most popular on TV, it’s a failed comeback? don’t be stupid.
