Worst Movie Accents

From CNN...


Worst Film Accents

LONDON, England -- Oscar winner Sean Connery has been named the actor with the worst film accent of all time in a UK magazine poll.

Movie experts gave his attempt to play an Irish cop in the 1987 film "The Untouchables" -- which hardly concealed his strong Scottish burr -- top place in the poll by Empire movie magazine.

POLL: WORST FILM ACCENTS
1. Sean Connery, "The Untouchables" (1987)
2. Dick Van Dyke, "Mary Poppins" (1964)
3. Brad Pitt, "Seven Years In Tibet" (1997)
4. Charlton Heston, "Touch of Evil" (1958)
5. Heather Graham, "From Hell" (2001)
6. Keanu Reeves, "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992)
7. Julia Roberts, "Mary Reilly" (1996)
8. Laurence Olivier, "The Jazz Singer" (1980)
9. Peter Postlewaite, "The Usual Suspects" (1995)
10. Meryl Streep, "Out of Africa" (1985)
-- Source: Empire Magazine


Other than this list, who do you guys think have done horrible accents in film?

Sean Connery in Hunt For Red October should be on that list too. Maybe they just didnt want to put him on there twice.

Don't worry...my childhood was just fine.

I used to dig in the dirt for worms so that I could build them homes in my sandbox. Afterwards, I would pop tar bubbles on the highway with pointy rocks, and sometimes the boy next door would tease me with dead snakes.

What was this thread about again?
