Maybe Shiloh, Brad and the gang should have made onscreen cameos?

Despite months of intense promotion, Angelina Jolie's The Tourist failed to crack $20 million in box office receipts during its opening weekend.

Costarring Johnny Depp, the sexy spy thriller cost more than $100 million to produce, but raked in just $17 million, Entertainment Weekly reports -- landing the flick at number two behind The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which itself earned a disappointing $24.5 million.

Critics' reviews for the Jolie-Depp caper -- which was filmed in Venice, Italy and other romantic European locales -- probably didn't help.

"In a year of craptaculars, The Tourist deserves burial at the bottom of the 2010 dung heap," Rolling Stone's Peter Travers sniped.

Added the New York Times: "When she {Jolie] first appears in a come-hither outfit and a small private smile, she looks ready for liftoff. She never ignites, and neither does the movie."
