Kurt Russell.
Tombstone and Big Trouble in Little China absolve Kurt Russell's mistakes. Tombstone especially. It may be the best western flick of all time.

How could I forget Tyler Perry. That Madea stuff looks bad enough, but I read he was pretty awful as Alex Cross.

Wow, you Kurt Russell fans have really come out of the woodwork!

I liked a lot of what he was in. Even the terrible movies. Just because Big Trouble was a great movie doesn't mean it wasn't also a totally terrible movie... and sorry, but gosh, he's a bad actor.

In the spirit of that statement: Bruce Campbell.

He is not!!! He's not the greatest but I don't think he's the worst either. I loved him in a lot of movies.

+1 to that, as well as The Searchers. Any movie where he's far-from-being-perfect is pretty good, in my book.

Keanu Reeves in "Much Ado About Nothing' was so painful to watch. He must have gotten his training by reading 'Acting for complete idiots.'

Personally I like Clint in his more recent stuff, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, even Space Cowboys.

I agree! A low point in a career full of... um... Matrix 3... oh gosh. Maybe he really is worse than Kurt Russell. At least you want to like Kurt Russell.

Speaking of "Tombstone", I discovered the entire movie is on Youtube, so I'm watching it now.
I never saw it before.

Tom Mix wept.



Tombstone was Val Kilmer's magnum opus as well.
