I actually liked Water World. They like to pick on Showgirls, but what guy doesn't like to watch the movie and Elizabeth Berkeley, at least to me, is very good looking.

I doubt Kevin Costner nor Sean Connery could give two shits about this list lol. The guys are bonafide movie stars through and through. These lists are just some (young) persons ridiculous, uninformed opinion..there’s nothing to it at all..

Liz Berkely was in NYPD Blue and did nice work. Maybe she is better on the small screen.

Waterworld is one of the best movies ever!!! That people didn’t get it is up to them, but that movie Rocked! This movie and Patrick Swayze’s roadhouse will go down in history as bad movies, but in reality they are the best things to come out of Hollywood ever!!!
Gaz B 007 (27 days ago)
So let me get this straight... You can star in amazing movies for years and years (Let's say K.Costner like in this video) and be an acting icon. Then, because of one film u star in later on isn't as good then your careers over? Hollywood... What a joke!

I always respected that Halle for recieving her Razzie in person. She never wanted to do Catwoman BTW.

Really ? Grace was really Good as Venom , because this is the real Personafication of Eddie Brock a broken Man that loves too become Venom . Spicy commentary`s and the real backround story from Venom was show`n in Spiderman 3 . Ok i admit i see a lot of Erick Forman in Grace in this Movie but still great Work as a Actor and Comic Lover

Kevin Costner made a very nice comeback in 2018 with Yelllowstone. It's a tv show, not a movie. I like it a lot.

Was Elizabeth Berkley that bad? I'm sorry, but I can't see passed how insanely gorgeous she is to be able to tell lol.

It's a myth that "Waterworld" was unsuccessful. Worldwide, it brought in a TON of cash. It was not a blockbuster in America, but did 'ok.' But the media hype that it was a failure is completely inaccurate. It's not my fave film by a damn longshot. But it made boucoup dough.

The city set on Waterworld burned into the water. They lost something like a hundred million in one fire. Then it got panned by critics.
Drayson Roberts (1 month ago)
Men between the ages of 19 and 28 are the public target in Hollywood for making the most money. So when stars reach 30 years of age, they're not hired any longer because actors who aren't young any longer don't appeal to young men. It has nothing to do with the movies they've made and how bad they were.

Waterworld is good because the history of the earth and its nature with it’s power.. he was the best actor for that film.

bheast86 (1 month ago)
In most of these bad roles, the actors were actually pretty good - Berry & Berkeley were obviously a lot too subtle for many critics, including the unreliable Razzies. But what about actors whose careers weren't ruined by roles when they should have been? Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Chris Tucker, Sasha Baron Cohen in quite a lot?

If you want to be a true superhero give your life to Jesus Christ. Soon, the 144 thousand the bible talks about in these last days will be given power they will be the Lords army. I've done had dreams and visions of being given a new body and being able to fly and have many other powers. If your someone who wants to be more then what you are give your life to Jesus Christ, and he will change you and make you a new creation. More importantly he can save you from Hell a place so bad that i would not wish it upon my worse enemy cause i have seen parts of it and its horrible. I also have seen parts of Heaven and spoke to Jesus Christ face to face he's very real and he loves you. Subscribe to my channel for more videos on my experiences. God bless.

Macaulay Culkin, Hayden Christensen and Edward Furlong should get honorable mentions although I do think Furlong is a good actor.

Yes yes YES! Goddamm mo**fu**ing YES! There's only one film with Sean Connery I hate, and this is The League of Extra Bordinary Gentlemen

Connery started losing his memory, believed to be from the first stages of Alzheimer's soon after. His career had previously been harmed by his appearance in the so-bad-it-was-unwatchable Avengers, with Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurton, both of whose careers also took a hit, Fiennes' fatally in Hollywood.

Disagree fo Kevin Kostnet. Waterworld is not a good movie, but what does it matters a movie in a so bright career?

Halle berry. Sounds like a poisonous fruit.

"Waterworld" starring Kevin Costner did eventually recoup its huge production costs, taking worldwide TV broadcast sales into account and home video sales it actually made a healthy profit overall, so it is not quite the financial bomb it is made out to be, it was not the box office smash the studio had hoped for.....but it made good money over time.

I don't think Kevin Costner was ruined by any means. I think he just got older.

I like topher Grace , but casting him as venom was akin to mr. Bean playing superman.

Sean Connery was ending his career after "The League.." afaik. He didn't like the movie himself, but it wasn't what ended it, he was just old. Halle Berry has had many good roles since Catwoman. Actors aren't all DiCaprio who manages to have hit after hit. Halle Berry didn't have more hits before Catwoman either. I agree Waterworld was catastrophic for Kevin Costner, but I don't think it was an entirely uninteresting movie. It got more flak than it deserved. Can't say too much about the rest, I'm pretty sure Elizabeth Berkley never had the chops for the big screen. She seemed like a bad actor willing to compromise by showing skin.

Kevin Costner should not be here plus water world is a movie that you can watch possibly a 3rd time

I thought it weird and disappointing that Neve Campbell didn't go nude in Wild Things. Then years latter she did go nude in I Really Hate My Job and it all made sense. It wasn't that she didn't want to go nude in Wild Things it was just that the director knew no one was going to want to see that train wreck.

Wild Things wasnt a bad film 64% on RT, but it did hurt Campbell's career, "League" wasn't a bad film, and absolutely did nothing to tarnish Connery's 60 year career, Waterworld did hurt Costner, ALOT, look where he was and what he did afterwards...

I'm surprised they didn't choose Finding Forrester for Connery, the "You're The Man Now Dog" scene at the end is so cringeworthy it became it's own internet meme

Sean Connery intended extraordinary gentleman to be his swan song, that's why he asked for 16 million up front and cut of the box office.
Alex Crowder (2 months ago)
Its a bit ironic to call "man of steel" a blockbuster, considering its probably too new to have ever been in an actual blockbuster store.

Showgirls is heavily satirical and tongue-in-cheek like Verhoeven's other films and it's also hilarious.
