Mel Gibson flops with ‘The Beaver’ – but was it expected?

Mel Gibson has said that friends like Whoopi Goldberg and Jodie Foster have stood by him through tough times, but will moviegoers?

Gibson’s film “The Beaver,” which co-starred and was directed by Foster, opened in limited release this weekend to poor box office returns. After a bow in 22 theaters, “Beaver” only pulled in $104,000, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The movie, released a little less than a year after the controversy surroundingGibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva made headlines, tells the story of a deeply depressed toy company CEO (Gibson) who relies on a beaver puppet to help turn his life back around.
