Actors that ruin EVERYTHING

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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (2036 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 0
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

All-time low: Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (1652 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 0
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:
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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (851 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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (161 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
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

The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (505 ratings) 7.2 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:
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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (1212 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:
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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (727 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
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
The Flagship's rating:
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
The Flagship's rating:
Average listal rating (1330 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:
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:

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.
