Jude Law.
Utterly unconvincing.

I obviously missed the scene with Jesus in a chariot, that sounds quite entertaining actually

keanu is a good choice for the title but the plank of wood that is daniel Radcliff must be considered.

Billy Zane in Titanic was very stereotypical at times.
Don't know the actor's name but the one who played the FBI Agent in a little known film called 'Airline Disaster'. Atrocious.

In my humble opinion, Woody Allen , plays the same old miserable depressed geek in almost every film he has ever been in, hey but everyones a critic, i would love to be bad as people think Stallone, statham or Butler are, i would be laughing all the way to the bank. But the best are Eastwood, Hackman, Freeman and dare i say Mel Gibsons body of work holds its own, Payback, the patriot and Ransom to name a few, but what do i know i only watch about 70 films a month. Best war film ever though meet the parents, lol

I know it's ancient history, but try Shirley Anne Field in the old film Horrors of the Black Museum. It "shirley" has to be
the most laughable performance ever

One lad who is truly terrible..........Orlando bloom!

Gives my home town a bad name.........

Suprised about some names such as will smith, will Ferrell, and tom cruise. Yea sure they've all done terrible films but then they all have a long CV. They do also have some cracking films under their belts.

Even Adam Sandler has happy Gilmore!

As far as I can see (skim reading) nobody has said Mark Wahlberg. Seriously?!

The Happening, Max Payne?!

I've almost forgiven him for being involved in the making of Entourage but I think his sins are too much lol.

Edit: Also, Timothy Olyphant

Sorry disagree, anyone can make a dodgy film, on paper it looks good , but a lot of the final product inherently lies in the directors/ editors hands, it is their job to get the most out of the actors and edit the film and splice it accordingly. Lets not forget it's hard to turn down stupid money for a 2-3 month shoot, Have you seen Shooter with Mark Wahlberg, or even Planet of the apes gives a fairly decent performance, Shooter is an excellent film all be it almost completely lifted of the Kennedy assasination.

He also had a hand in the excellent Boardwalk Empire but the key point is he didn't act in it.

After seeing The Departed and The Fighter I refuse to even consider Mark Wahlberg. Nicholas Cage actually used to be pretty good, then it seems like he sold out for a couple of terrible movies then no decent director wanted to touch him any more - so now he just shows up and doesn't really try to act.

For me, it HAS to be Sam Worthington. Channing Tatum gets off the hook for 21 Jump Street, where he was hilarious (although, admittedly, pretty much just playing himself)

Who is Chris Klein, lol

Bloke from American Pie. I'd argue that forgetting him is the only sensible course of action

"Nicholas Cage actually used to be pretty good, then it seems like he sold out for a couple of terrible movies then no decent director wanted to touch him any more - so now he just shows up and doesn't really try to act."

I loved Kick Ass purely because of Nicholas Cage. I thought he was great in that movie. I agree with what someone said about the director, script and editing to blame. You can literally have anyone in a movie but so long as the director is creative enough, the script is written to cater for it and it's edited well...much of this can be hidden.

Take Terminator 1 and Arnold for example. His sheer silence fits the role very well.

Truth is though, there are times a director can't hide these things when the scene dictates a bigger performance for impact. This is when you need to have a great actor. I would say that people like Nicholas Cage, Keanu Reeves, Sylvester Stallone can act on the fly...but they are very type cast when compared to someone like Johnny Depp.

I'm actually making my own indie film with myself acting in it. I can't act to save my life. It means more cuts, huge limitations with camera creativity...but I think I can pull it off.

You're all obvious idiots. How can you say Nic Cage is a bad actor? Keanu? Really? Come on! The guys brought you Conair and the Matrix!! Try looking at people like Jesse Eisenberg and Daniel Radcliffe.. Ughh!!

The matrix carried Keanu because it suited his ability to show very little emotion throughout.

P.s. con air was great to watch but not because of cage it was all the other supporting actors that made that film.

If anything I'd use The Matix as evidence FOR Keanu being in this list, not against.
