The cast:

Michael Douglas
Antonio Banderas
Ewan McGregor
John Paxton

Michael Fassbender

I don't remember a movie this bad with that many good to great actors.

Anyone can thing of a worse movie with a better cast than Haywire?

I nominate mars attacks. I know it has a bit of a cult following but I think its terrible and very unfunny and I usually enjoy a bit of camp.


Now for the cast

Jack Nicholson, Michael J. Fox, Glenn Close, Pierce Bronsan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Annette Bening, Martin Short, Natalie Portman, Luke Haas, Danny DeVito, Jack Black, Tom Jones, Pam Grier, Christina Applegate.

Bro. The object is "worst" movie, not Oscar-worthy films that were snubbed by West Coast liberale snobs.

yea, put me in the "Cannonball doesn't belong" crowd. It was just a bunch of funny people having fun. In its right context it is freaking awesome.

I would put Nobody's Fool (1994) in this category. Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy and Bruce Willis. Fantastic actors (at least Newman and Tandy) but they were miscast IMO. The movie might not be terrible if you didn't know how good the book was and how deep and interesting those characters could be.

Excellent pull my man. And Melanie Griffith pulls up her shirt.

Those Star Wars prequels had some huge stars, or at least soon-to-be huge stars.

McGregor
Portman
Neeson
Sam Jackson
I think they were all already fairly big and this is a good choice. I didn’t hate the movies but they weren’t great. And I really like all those actors independent of these films but they are all poor casting choices here. Maybe not Neeson but it’s all just opinion anyway.

How difficult must it be, when a huge star tells you they want to be in your film, to tell them no because they aren’t a good fit.
