The 11 Crappiest Movies Of Michael Douglas’ Career
Honestly, I don't have much to say about Michael Douglas, the man, other than to point out that he's enjoyed a rather illustrious career spawned in equal parts by nepotism and talent. As an actor, he's okay, but he's made some horrifically crappy movies:
Black Rain: Sure, it was stylishly shot, directed by Ridley Scott, and had decent shootouts, but this movie contained plot holes galore.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps: This could have been a timely critique on the current economic crisis. Instead, it was a dull excuse to crank out a sequel for the money.
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt: Yet another pointless remake.
Don't Say a Word: The trailer for this movie was actually rather promising ("I'll never teeeeeeelllll!"), but the reveal at the end ruined it all.
The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past: This one had a few vaguely amusing lines but they certainly weren't worth justifying the entire movie. Also, poor Charles Dickens.
It Runs in the Family: It's bad enough that this movie exists in the first place, but did Michael have to drag Daddy Kirk down as well?
The Jewel of the Nile: At first, the idea of this sequel to Romancing the Stone probably seemed like a slam dunk, but the magic just couldn't be recaptured.
A Perfect Murder: Alright, I actually liked this film in spite of Gwyneth Paltrow and the botched remake factor. Still, it was pretty damn crappy.
The Sentinel: Pointless characters and a convoluted plot meant that this movie never really had a chance.
Shining Through: Another case where the book is far better than the movie adaptation.
You, Me and Dupree: Do I really need to justify this one?
And a little unexpected bonus number for you...
The Game: David Fincher, blah blah blah. Such a stupid, stupid ending.
