I don't think any actor (or actress) has ever received a more deserved Hollywood comeback than Robert Downey Jr., right? This guy clawed his way back from the rock bottom of his addictions, which just so happened to coincide with a stint on "Ally McBeal." As such, his career resurrection has been an astounding and ongoing sight to behold. Still, the man has made some pretty awful movies along the way. Possibly some of his choices were made under the influence of drugs, or maybe not. Whatever the case, let us reflect upon the eleven crappiest movies of his career:

U.S. Marshals: RDJ himself described this film as "possibly the worst action movie of all time." That pretty much says it all.

The Singing Detective: I tried so hard to like this movie, but it just paled in comparison to the original miniseries.

Johnny Be Good: Even in the context of Brat Pack movies, this one was ridiculous. Anthony Michael Hall as a hot QB prospect? Please. Uma Thurman sure is purty though.

Gothika: This movie was one of the most plot-ridden, cinematic nightmares that I've ever personally experienced.

The Shaggy Dog: Here stands another entry into the Tim Allen School of Annoying Kids' Movies.

Air America: Both Downey and Mel Gibson were ridiculously unconvincing as pilots, and this was quite the cheesy action film, but I'll take Top Gun cheese over this variety anyday.

Due Date: Was this movie supposed to be funny? Because all I caught was an overriding sense of mean-spirited stupidity.

Heart and Souls: Sure, this has all the elements of a heart-warming, feel-good movie, but it was so, so, crappy.

Only You: This movie is a perfect illustration of how both RDJ and Marisa Tomei are cut out for much better projects than a formulaic romcom.

The Soloist: This experience was tedious, depressing, and quite the opposite of uplifting. Jamie Foxx was also pretty damn awful in his role.

Less Than Zero: Yes, I know, but put aside your nostalgia for just a few hours, and rewatch this movie. Afterwards, you just might agree that (after 20 years), it is one hell of a crappy film.
