Ben Affleck in Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back.

That man needs a 12 step program.

Nicole Kidman in all of her roles as an American.

My God this thread is bitchy!

I don't think Meryl Streep's accent was bad in 'Out of Africa' , nor was Winona Ryder's accent in 'Bram Stoker's Dracula', though Keanu Reeves' accent was quite terrible in that one.

The worst accent though, goes to Kevin Costner's 'Robin Hood', with Patrick Stewart's cack-handed American accent in 'Conspiracy Theory'. Oh, and don't get me started on Ian McKellen's weirdo accent in the X-Men movies. An actor of his callibre has no excuse.

Everyone's accent in "Enemy at the Gates."

A Texan Nazi and a bunch of British Russians.

Johnny Depp in "Chocolat"--great Irish accent, but why the hell is his name Roux?

Well, I have seen 8 of the 10.

I would reccomend :

Touch of Evil

bad accents and all.

ToE is a great movie for it's era.

Halle Berry in "X-Men".

Heath Ledger in "Ned Kelly".

Nicolas Cage in "Captain Corelli's Mandolin".

Every Russian accent in every English-speaking movie.

Has anyone seen XXX (yeah it sucks - this is my point.)

Why is it that all the actors who were supposed to be Czech had bad fake Russian accents? What you couldn't do a bad fake Czech accent? We Czech girls get testy on this point.


I would like to say yes as well to the Halle Berry in "X-men" and Kevin Costner in "RHPOT."

I like that they both gave up trying half way through though.

Take any B Grade actor and require an accent and you will have trouble. See Ben Asslick, Keanu Reeves and Kevin Costner. As for types like Nicole Kidman, it's not surprising. Since she has spent so much time over in America she's in the middle of her accent transplant and generally talks in a terrible combination of the 2 anyway. She has neither accent really and it shows in her movies.
Argh. Keanu Reeves is such a woeful actor he can barely speak in his natural American accent let alone anything else.
