16 Terrible Performances That Ruined Movies
Acting is an art. Just like a brilliant performance can lift a movie to a new level of greatness, a lousy performance can easily ruin the whole movie. Here’s 16 worst performances that should be largely responsible for the total failure of the movies.
16. Hayden Christensen – Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones
How to ensure that George Lucas’ stilted and creaky dialogue is brought beautifully to life? Cast an actor who’s as wooden as a Trojan horse and about as charismatic as a sucking black hole. Where’s Harrison Ford when you need him?
15. Sofia Coppola – The Godfather Part III
Sofia Coppola was no stranger to the Godfather trilogy, she was cast in the first part when she was only a baby. Then she took the reins from Winona Ryder for the trilogy-capping Godfather flick. Sadly, Ryder’s absence was heavily felt as Coppola demonstrated that acting wasn’t in her blood. The final “Dad” is a line delivery of horrific proportions. She should never act and just direct only.
14. Halle Berry – Catwoman
To be fair, she had a truly horrendous catsuit to contend with. Still, Berry’s partly to blame, failing to capture the same sexy bad girl spirit that Michelle Pfeiffer so effortlessly conjured in the vastly, vastly superior Batman Returns. Anne Hathaway was also perfectly cast for this role in The Dark Knight Rises, so how could Oscar-winner Berry blow it totally?
13. Darren Ewing – Troll 2
This guy should get some kind of award. Not for being bad, of course, but for being so freaking entertaining that he completely ruins the rest of the movie because we can’t stop giggling. His mouth says “Oh my God”, but his eyes say “kill me”. What a Genius.
