Nemesis wasn't bad. It only failed because it was released when Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and The Matrix: Revelations were both in theaters.
then why did it lose to "Maid in Manhattan" when it opened up? "Nemesis" is The only Trek movie not to open at no.1 LOTR:TTT wasn't even out yet.
i know i was saving up for a big LOTR night (going out to the midnight show, and eating before/afterwards).
I didn't want to get movied out.
And LotR was definitely grander & more anticipated than Nemesis.
And when i heard the reviews -- definitely killed my excitement.
