Do the Good (Movies) Prosper?

This chart tries to answer the eternal question: how does a movie's quality correlate with its box office success?

Mouse over each circle for the movie title. The circles are sized according to the movie's budget.
Warmer colors are more profitable, cool colors are bombs (sorry, Girl Most Likely).
