The movie industry is awash with good and bad actors and actresses, but at the end of the day, it comes down to personal preference. Take movie reviews for example, we have all seen bad scores on movies and have often been deterred by them, but one person’s view is not necessarily another’s. We are all different and if we all agreed on the same things, the world would be a pretty boring place to live, but we can all agree on one thing – when actors perform bad, they must be really bad!
According to a recent piece of content from the people behind BingoFind.com, which was put together by collecting information from Metacritic and Box Office Mojo, some of the biggest Hollywood stars that we have seen in numerous movies are featured on this unenviable list.
Adam Sandler who has played the roles of Nicky in Little Nicky, Bobby Boucher in The Waterboy, Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer and Sonny Koufax in Big Daddy, is often labelled a bad actor when in reality, he has been nominated for 1 Golden Globe with 65 award wins under his belt and a further 123 nominations, so is he good or bad? All those awards and nominations have not stopped him being labelled as a bad actor with the worst movie he has ever starred in being The Ridiculous 6. The Native American themed comedy racked up an abysmal score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes which is humiliating in itself, but it also saw native Americans leaving the set in protest of its humour and this in itself led to bad publicity.
Rob Schneider finds himself accused of crimes against great movies, and it is no surprise given that he stars in many movies alongside Adam Sandler. It is almost as if he is being tarnished with the same brush! Another one on the list of bad actors is Freddie Prince Jr, going from the role of heartthrob in I Know What You Did Last Summer to modern day Scooby Doo films. Many believe it is his leap from a serious role in horror movies to a childish portrayal of Shaggy that has led to him being featured on the bad actors list.
What about the women? There is a list of five names that continue to crop up and if you are watching a movie starring any of these, you can bet your bottom dollar it has a bad score rating on movie websites – Courtney Cox (from Friends), Bella Thorne (star of teen movies), Jessica Alba (The Eye), Ali Larter (Legally blonde) and Hilary Duff. Of those five, Hilary Duff is rated as the worst. She began acting at a very young age when she starred as Lizzie McGuire in a children’s sitcom, fast forward a decade or two and her most recent appearances on the screen include cringe-worthy discussions on female sexual health problems. Despite a net worth of more than $25million, Hillary is famed for embarrassing roles and her earlier roots.
So, whether you are in agreement with the findings or not, it seems that Hollywood’s high-profile actors and actresses have more to worry than just being featured on the worst dressed list.
