I think "Ishtar" was very influential. I know one cinema class where the prof started off with "And this is how you don't do it."
Really? Honestly I didn't think it was *that* bad of a movie. It was a comedy made with a too-large budget that cast too-large actors in starring roles, and it got *so* much negative hype that it went the way of Gigli as soon as it came out, but as a slightly more modern version of a Bob Hope / Bing Crosby road movie, it was decently funny and I thought worked pretty well. I can think of a lot of major Hollywood movies that were a *lot* worse (see: Ransom, starring Nicholas Cage and Nicole Kidman for one example).
Totally agree.  It was ok but as you say they spent too much money on it and had two too big names involved.
