This could be interesting.


What actor or actress do you detest so much
that you refuse to watch any of their films?


I have two actors in particular that I wish would

stop making films altogether....

Basically, these two actors have a lot in common.

They are what I consider to be "one hit wonders"

where they play the same lame type of role time

and time again.


I don't think Will Ferrell bothers me as much as

Jack Black, who single-handedly ruined the film

King Kong for me.   Still will never understand

how Black was cast in such a huge film like that.


So, do any of you have similar dislikes towards

a particular actor or actress that you totally avoid

watching their films?

Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robins.  While great actors, I can't stand every time they get the spot light they use it to force their political views down our throats. You're not special, we don't care what you think, just act.

None.  If someone wants to hire them and others want to see them, that's fine with me.  Just because I don't like someone doesn't mean they shouldn't make movies any more...

I completely agree with Ron on this one.  The first name that came to my mind was Will Ferrell but Jack Black is not far behind.

It's the movie and not the actor for me. For example, I hate Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore but I'm glad that I didn't institute a no-Sandler policy because he's great in Punch Drunk Love and Funny People.

Yeah, Adam Sandler is tied with my top two choices

as well.  Can't believe I forgot about him.


I won't even look at an Adam Sandler movie.  He's
not funny....period!

I'm with Travis.  Adam Sandler has been in some really stupid movies, but he's also been very good in straighter roles (Cf. films like Spanglish or Funny People).  Personally, I'd be more inclined to avoid particular writers or directors than actors.  And even then I don't think there's anyone I would write off entirely.


Jack Black and Will Ferrell have done some good work, but they've both made a habit of doing caricatures of a recurring shtick.  There are only so many times one can watch the same thing, I guess.  But I won't write off a movie solely because it stars someone like that.


While I don't care for the in-your-face politics of people like Sean Penn or Susan Sarandon, if they're in a good movie that's fine by me.

I wouldn't shed a single tear if I never saw Jennifer Aniston do anything in any media again.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

You know what? My choice isn't someone I hate. It's someone I used to love. It's someone who holds a very dear place in my heart.


Harrison Ford


My wife and I watched "Morning Glory" last week and he slept walked through the entire thing. It was ironic how the character he played, a former anchor who's phoning it in to fulfill a contract, closely mirrored his performance in the movie. Harrison Ford has growled his way through every one of his performances for the last ten years. He's obviously over the whole thing. It's time for him to retire.

I agree with most here.......Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Owen Wilson, and Ben Stiller are all pretty grating to have to watch on screen.  Ferrell and Sandler are the worst tho, I don't remember the last movie I saw with one of them in it.


I agree Chad about Harrison Ford, I get uneasy and a little embaressed ever since I saw the made for TV movie trailer with B. Frasier.


I have seen Larry David in action, and that man is an animal, and he has to be stopped.

Will Farrell (Farrell has never made me laugh. Not once)

Seth Rogen (who has played the exact same person in every movie Ive seen him in)

Russell Brand


I'm also sick of John Depp and Robert Downey jr


To add to this. I hope Rob Zombie never makes another film.

Agree on Adam Sandler.....but I love Jack Black. At least some of his stuff. School of Rock is one of my modern favorites. He OWNS that role.

Sean Penn is another. Not sure I remember paying to see a film of his.

Seth Rogan is simply unfunny to me. I'm sure he's a good guy etc...but just don't like his films. He irritates the heck out of me.

Chris Rock too.

Harrison Ford still has great potential if it's the right role. But there are a few.... If I never see any of the no talent Karsashins again it will be too soon. Jennifer Aniston is another good one. If you haven't even heard of 'Management' there is a reason. Holy cow. Kathryn Heigl is one of the mist embarrassing one note actresses to get gigs. Outside of Knocked Up, she's been awful. She has no depth at all. Ashton Kutcher is last on my list. Please go away.

I don't have strong opinions about major actors. But I groan every time Ivana Miličević shows up in a bit role, and it is too often for my tastes.

I don't like Olivia Wilde. I didn't see Tron Legacy because of her. Not too fond of MATT DAMON! either.
