Will be typecast as a superficial teenager until the day she dies. She seems to have found an anti-ageing tonic that has kept her looking like a 17-year-old cheerleader, despite the fact that she is bordering thirty. No doubt The O.C would be knocking if it was still around!

Saving Grace: American Beauty
Starring again in the challenging role of superficial teenager, Mena was the target of lusty Lester's affections. Only in a film, eh!

All-time low: Loser

Dreadful in every sense of the word. Some people might have fond memories of her as a girl with semen in her hair, but that is the epitome of her life's work. Even her aura suggests that she's a terrible human being!

Saving Grace: None

Nic Cage is a terrible actor and a disgrace to the profession. Even his hairline is an insult. Why do directors try to tell us that he's an ingenious action man who oozes capability and integrity? Completely unbelievable in every role.

Saving Grace: The Rock
The unstoppable combination of...Ed Harris and Michael Biehn drag this film out of Cage's destructive clutches.

All-time low: The Wicker Man
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:
A fat martial artist is most people's perception. Can't really fault it nowadays, can you? His eye for a sharp suit and his impending retirement are the only things he has going for him. One day, he might let someone actually hit him in his films! Seagal sex scenes are utterly hilarious to watch!

Saving Grace: Out for Justice
Everyone remembers Under Siege, but this cop classic is just slightly less camp. Although the villain is dreadful, his no-nonsense commanding of the streets is heroic.

All-time low: Belly of the Beast

Rate:
Average listal rating (852 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 0
If you need a naked body or a 'girl with attitude' then just hire Eva Mendes. Utilised for eye candy and very little else.

Saving Grace: Training Day
Cameos as... a naked woman. Any respect this film has certainly doesn't involve Mendes' stirring performance.

All-time low: 2 Fast 2 Furious

Hollywood seems to have fallen in love with the big, always angry, no-nonsense Londoner and see fit to give him roles in all the summer blockbusters. Goodness knows why! He hams it up to the max as a cockney.

Saving Grace: The Departed
A brilliant movie through and through, not even he could disrupt it. Suppression of his cockney vernacular helped.

All-time low: Beowulf

The Flagship's rating:

Seeing him now is just embarrassing. He might have had some pulling power and even a heartthrob status back in the day, but now JT is just an overweight clown who seems to sell himself to any project. Rumours of him appearing in a remake of Stalker have me waking up in a cold sweat at night.

Saving Grace: Pulp Fiction
Saved, of course, because every one of his co-star actors were brilliant. Even Ving Rhames!

All-time low: Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000

Average listal rating (507 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
Fresh-faced and of indeterminable age, Walker looks just as out of place as a leading man as Zach Morris did playing a cop on NYPD Blue. Uncomfortable as the lead role and uncharismatic to boot. His filmography contains more flops than the average game of poker.

Saving Grace: None

All-time low: 2 Fast 2 Furious
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:
Shot to international fame by portraying the most legendary villain in film history as a sulking, childish plank of wood. Thanks, Hayden! Looking at the two, he might as well be interchangeable with Paul Walker.

Saving Grace: Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
Saved only because of his utter destruction at the hands of Obi-Wan. Darth Vader then becomes a symbol of mockery and shame with the pantomime acting Christensen blesses us with.

All-time low: Jumper

Rate:
Average listal rating (1214 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 0
An actress who harps on about striving for integrity, before accepting huge cash incentives to appear naked in one of the worst films ever made. Forgettable Bond girl, forgettable action hero, unforgettably bad comic book feline.

Saving Grace: X2: X-Men United
Because of the pure array of talent along side her, we'll let her off. At least she has limited screen time.

All-time low: Catwoman
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:
Like a senile old granddad who makes uncomfortable comments about young women at family parties. I think he's still around because his son has a career, he sure as hell lost it years ago!

Saving Grace: Kelly's Heroes
A, dare I say it, likeable character! That doesn't stop him from struggling to speak English though. Maybe it was the beard, but I was sure he was woofing throughout most of the film.

All-time low: The Italian Job

I just don't know what to say. She inspires boredom along with a complete indifference when I look at her. Not exactly emotions that a film-maker wants his audience to experience when watching their film, surely?

Saving Grace: None

All-time low: Proof of Life

Rate:
Average listal rating (1390 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 0
If only smugness was a fossil fuel, we'd be able to harvest Jude Law's infinite reserves and never again worry about non-renewable energy sources. A face that could serve as a punch bag in gyms across the world in a move that would surely obliterate obesity problems everywhere.

Saving Grace: Just die Jude!

All-time low: Being born

Rate:
Average listal rating (1327 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 0
Responsible for a global pandemic of yawns whenever he releases a new film. The Hollywood 'funnyman' once came up with a formulaic comedy and then plagiarised it every other year. He called it 'his career'.

Saving Grace: Anger Management
Purely because of the devilish Jack Nicholson and, more importantly, a gentleman with a beard shaped like a question mark.

All-time low: Big Daddy? All of his films are identical!
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:
Anyone can turn up to work and squint-pout their way through a day. I can't believe she gets paid millions for the luxury! Renee is the true example of an actor that ruins everything, because no matter how good the cast she'll be a perennial spanner in the works.

Saving Grace: Me, Myself & Irene
Only the colossal legend, Jim Carey, is immune to her sabotagery.

All-time low: The Bachelor
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:

A list of actors or actresses that never fail to make you put a DVD down if you see their names attached to the cast-list. I often wonder how these people maintain their careers and, more importantly, who must hire them when their reputation for dreadfulness makes them impossible for any audience to take seriously.

I feel less tense after seeing these 'actors' rightfully demantled.

No film should boast these as cast members!
Posted: 9 years, 8 months ago at Sep 22 1:33
And you said you didn't know what a hater was, GA. Awesome list, man. Indeed lawl worthy.
Posted: 9 years, 8 months ago at Sep 23 21:21
Surely Don Sutherland can't be there! Even if he is then his saving grace is The Eagle has Landed! That's two classic war films and once they have two decent films on their CV, surely they can't be on it any more!

I think old Don has been in more than you remember! Sure he has soiled his late career with shite but who doesn't.

Just die Jude! that's fucking awesome! jude the fucking crocoboy! but why adam sandler? :D
Posted: 9 years, 5 months ago at Nov 28 17:27
I would change Adam Sandler's Saving Grace to "Punch-Drunk Love". He's just brilliant in that film.
Nice list anyway. :)
Posted: 9 years, 5 months ago at Nov 30 12:42
Jennifer Lopez deserves a high place in this list, don't you think? Jack, The Cell, Maid in Manhattan, Anconda, Enough, Gigli, Angel Eyes... the list is endless. Not to mention her 'singing' :D
Posted: 9 years, 5 months ago at Nov 30 12:43
her saving grace is U Turn, her all time low, take a pick from anything else..
Posted: 9 years, 5 months ago at Dec 12 14:05
Nice list, but might I suggest Paul Walker's only saving grace: Running Scared. It was actually a very intense thriller, and Walker's performance did NOT suck. It actually was.. believable!
Posted: 9 years, 5 months ago at Dec 12 22:40
I LOVE your list. SPOT ON!

lol, some things are so true. Mendes and Seagal have to be higher ;)

sweet list =)

Good list. I don't agree with Donald Sutherland, and I would definitely add Renee Zelwegger, Julianne Moore and Mark Wahlberg to the list.
Posted: 8 years, 2 months ago at Mar 22 22:55
Jennifer Lopez & Renee Zelwegger need too be on the list
Posted: 8 years, 2 months ago at Mar 23 14:04
John Travolta on this list? I don't think so
Posted: 8 years, 2 months ago at Mar 23 14:32
Donald Sutherland played several credible roles in films (in addition to Kelly's Heroes) up until the early 1980s:
The Dirty Dozen (Vernon Pinkley)
MASH (Hawkeye)
The Eagle Has Landed (Liam Devlin)
Eye of the Needle (the spy, Faber)

It was after the early 1980s, that he started doing any shite that came along.

horrible list u.u
Posted: 8 years, 1 month ago at Apr 1 21:34
You pair have great taste :/
Posted: 8 years, 1 month ago at Apr 20 19:28
Awesome list! While I do love myself some smug Jude Law...purely for aesthetic purposes...I was amused to no end at your very justified rant. You should definitely make this longer!
Posted: 7 years, 9 months ago at Jul 29 18:29
Whoa, what's the deal with Jude Law? It's more like you simply don't like his face.
Posted: 7 years, 9 months ago at Aug 11 4:12
Jennifer Lopez belongs on this list, along with Will Ferrell
Posted: 7 years, 9 months ago at Aug 11 17:23
I AM SO EFFING GLAD THAT HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN AND MEG RYAN ARE ON THIS LIST! Hayden Christensen is nothing but a face and most certainly can't act...and I find nothing Charming about Meg Ryan.Nothing at all. But I agree with jay-jay about the fact that Will Ferrell belongs on this list. He is god awful.
Posted: 7 years, 9 months ago at Aug 15 18:09
Renee Zellweger and Mark Walhberg should be here. List should be longer!
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Sep 25 1:42
this is pretty much perfect and your comments were hilarious. You need julia roberts I think, she's dreadful and Sarah Jessica Parker uugh hahaha
Posted: 7 years, 6 months ago at Oct 25 20:50
A good spot for Cameron Diaz. I really have no idea how she got the lead female role in Gangs of New York.
Posted: 7 years, 6 months ago at Nov 22 23:58
i'm not saying i agree or disagree but this list is hilarious nonetheless. you should've thrown the rock on this list also

Bravo Grand..I agree with you!
Posted: 7 years, 5 months ago at Nov 26 4:15
1. This needs Megan Fox & Jack Black!
2. Adam Sandler should be a lot higher.
3. What about Michael Cera? He's not a poor actor, but I think he's kinda worn out the whole "awkward teenager" thing. :P
Posted: 6 years, 4 months ago at Dec 24 21:13
I Can't Say I Agree With You.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Feb 6 5:20
I would argue that Being John Malkovich was Cameron Diaz's saving grace.
I would also argue that Punch Drunk Love is the only enjoyable Adam Sandler film. Anger Management was pathetic.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 3 1:00
Kevin James. That is all.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 3 1:22
If you really put every single bad actor/actress on here this list would be longer than the river nile.

WHAT??? Cameron seems to be such a sweet and funny person, I've never saw anybody saying such thing of her (until now).
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 3 18:27
Travolta my be fat, but he is nowhere near a "bad actor." And Cage? Really? Wow. Look at Leaving Las Vegas & Raising Arizona, & then tell me he's a bad actor. Where's Russell Crowe? Where's Warren Beatty? Colin Farrell? Those are bad (and boring) actors.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 22 1:45
Don't agree with your list, apart from Seagal and possibly Diaz, but I'm going to vote for it, to be fair :)
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Jan 9 3:33
You hit the spot on Adam Sandler, what a douche!
