'The Sixth Sense' No one saw it coming, and we're not talking about the much ballyhooed twist ending to writer-director M. Night Shyamalan's 1999 ghost drama. Although W.C. Fields famously cautioned that you should never work with children or animals, the former worked out pretty well for Bruce Willis. His muted performance opposite eerily grown-up child actor Haley Joel Osment helped "The Sixth Sense" gross $293 million.
