But I guess that enough women loved the scene where he nearly kisses Brad Pitt to make the error worth it.
Trust me, plenty of men liked that scene too.

Huh?! You've got to be kidding!!







Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys . Awful choice.

It's a ways back, but Edward G. Robinson played a norwegian Wisconsin farmer in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes".


Huh?

And an aging Gary Cooper portraying a playboy in "Love in the Afternoon", pursued by Audrey Hepburn.

Pierce Brosnan in "Mamma Mia". That man cannot sing. I feel sad for all the actors that could actually have done well in that role.

I disagree, Sandler is pretty fine as is, his problem is besides indy film like The Cobbler, he plays the same lovable loser time after time. Here's to his first Netflix movie The Ridiculous Six is something different in one of his Happy Maddison films.

My personal pick is Blake Lively as Carol Ferris in Green Lantern, say what you want but I bought Ryan Reynolds as a jokster Hal Jordan. What I didn't buy was Blake as the love interest because there wasn't any emotion in her acting.

Michael Keaton was my favorite Batman!

NONE of those baby daddies could sing! But Colin always gets a pass from me.

Portman and Christensen have proven themselves to be good actors in other roles - Portman won the Oscar for Black Swan - so I put the problems with the script, producer and director in the Star Wars prequels.

Kevin Costner as the flamboyant swashbuckler Robin Hood springs to mind for me - Costner is good in roles that require more intensity and less flare - the opposite of Robin Hood.

And Costner actually tried an English accent for that role.
