    'Artificial Intelligence' has almost finished and is the worst film I have seen in certainly the last few months. I base this on how I would react to seeing two or more of the leading actors die (delight). Sandra Bullock in 'Speed' was almost as bad, or possibly worse.
    What is the worst film/actors you have experienced?

    Pat "Puppy" Thomas. He played Uncle Fester in the Addams Family Reunion.

    I say that with pride. I went to high school with him. :approve:

    Unfortunately, most of the movies he's been in haven't been nearly as good as Addams Family Reunion.

    He does do a pretty good Curly if they ever do a Three Stooges movie.

    I've said this many times and I'll say it again. The Core is the worst thing ever filmed. It was actually advertised as being scientific, The flat-earth theory is more scientifically accurate than this film.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; I thought it was just so boring :/. I liked Speed though, but fair enough.

    Neve Campbell and the whole crew working on 'Scream I,II & III'.'Titanic' as well.I think Chevy Chase is okay.There are other comedy actors far worse than him.I would shoot Steve Martin between the eyes... :devil: He's so annoying....

    Daniel.

    I completely disagree dexter...Neve Campbell is very much ok as an actress...Steve Martin compared to Chase is like comparing Mozart to Britney Spears...With Martin in the role of Mozart of course...

    Don't smoke crack, then come post at PF. If you want to be a crackhead, with crackhead opinions go ahead, but this isn't the place for it.
    Chevy Chase is okay?
    seek rehab.

    apparently nobody hear has ever suffered through a movie that they made a Mystery Science Theater of in the Non-Mystery Science Theater form. Personally I vote for "The Amazing Colossal Man" and for second "The Brain that Wouldn't Die"

    My geology teacher in college always told me to watch that purely for laughs. I still intend to someday.
    On a similar note- did anyone ever see LA (the one with the volcano)? If no, don't! It was truely terrible! I'm not going to begin pointing out the horrible inaccuracies in it.

    No Marlon Brando? I have a feeling you'll regret that.

    Steve Martin is much better than Chevy Chase. I don't even know why Steve Martin is being discussed in this thread. Haven't you ever seen him doing his lariat tricks? I'll bet not too many of today's comedians can do something like that.

    Vanilla Sky has to be the worst movie ever. Overseas, the military base used to show movies at the theater for free, so you always had a pretty good turnout (thank God I didn't have to pay anything to see this). I was distracted through the entire second half of the movie by people in the audience constantly checking their watches to see how much time was left in the movie. It was actually more interesting watching the watches flicker on and off than watching the movie - kind of like they had let lose a swarm of fireflies in the movie theater.

    Oh, and just to be safe, I think Marlon Brando is one of the best actors ever.

    The Star Trek series with their goofy aliens and space-ships is the worst movie(s).

    P.S. :The actors 'starring' in it are equally as bad.

    I tend to forget the worst films and actors, unfortunately I remember "Prince of Thieves" as being one of the worst, certainly Kevin Costner was the worst. One sentence he'd try to have a british accent the next he sounded like he was from New York. :yuck:

    The 13th Warrior with Antonio Banderas, why?

    I LOVE "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy Chase. That is one of my all time favorite movies.

    Armageddon was the worst movie I've ever seen until I saw Slackers.

    Worst actor ever is Jennifer Lopez. Honorable mention is Ben Afflec.

    "Christmas Vacation" and "The Great Outdoors" have to be 2 of the funniest movies ever made.

    Best actor has to be Arnold Schwarzeneggggger in the Terminator. (couldnt decide on the best actor so picked him)

    Worst has to be anyone of the many "actors" in those cheesy porno's.
