Kevin Costner, in Robin Hood. SO bad that about halfway through, they just decided "forget it, just talk."

Jacqueline Lipton

Ah yes - I'd forgotten about that Robin Hood film. It was truly terrible!

Tim Zinnecker

Evil Angels? Perhaps "A Cry in the Dark" instead. Then again, Meryl Streep may utter the line in every movie! (And who can forget Elaine Benes and her variation of the quote in a Seinfeld episode.)

I don't mind bad accents as much as I do thick accents, particularly thick British accents that hinder my ability to understand the dialogue.

Jacqueline Lipton

OK - so make fun of the Australian! It was released in Australia under the title "Evil Angels".


Angelina Jolie in "Alexander." Where did the ancient Greeks learn English? Romania? Moldova? Inquring minds want to know.

Keanu Reeves in "Teh Devil's Advocate" is laughably implausable as well. Is he Southern? If so, why does he still sound like Johnny Eutaw in "Point Break"? Epic Fail.

Jeff Yates

Pretty much everyone who does a southern accent other than southerners - except maybe Robert Duval in "Tender Mercies". I'm open to other possibly reasonable takes on southern accents, but that's the only one that comes to mind as not awful.
