11 Crappiest Movies of Steve Zahn’s Career

Steve Zahn will never be an A-list actor, but who the hell cares? He's worked consistently for the past few decades, which is more than most guys in Hollywood can boast. While the characters he plays are often slackers, stoners, or otherwise complete dorks, he's done good work in a few gems, including Out of Sight, That Thing You Do!, and Rescue Dawn. Every so often, Zahn also gets to work against type in something terribly delicious like A Perfect Getaway, but for the most part, his talent is buried in a bunch of really crappy films. Here are the top eleven of them.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: This gimmicky, faux-journal series cannot end soon enough, although Zahn playing the inattentive father seems like an easy way to cash a check.

Forces of Nature: This romcom features a bit of an offbeat style and Sandra Bullock at her witty best, but it's just too silly to fully enjoy as a story.

Strange Wilderness: Zahn gets top billing here but it seems like he's merely sleepwalking instead of acting. Awful film too.

Sahara: $78 in red ink is possibly the most entertaining aspect of this movie. Also, Zahn was sorely miscast as the muscular, Italian Al Giordino of the novels.

Daddy Day Care: Do I really have to justify this one?

National Security: Zahn really took an unnecessary figurative pounding from Martin Lawrence in this racist-not-racist "comedy."

Chicken Little: In the words of my daughter, it looked creepy and wasn't very funny at all. She loves almost everything.

Chelsea Walls: Ethan Hawke directed this pretentious mess. HAhahahaha.

Employee of the Month: Hey, remember when Jessica Simpson was going to be a big movie star -- the next Julia Roberts or something? Yeah, that.

The Object of My Affection: This formulaic romcom tried so hard to be charming but failed miserably. And with Paul Rudd involved, that's a very hard thing to do.

Riding in Cars with Boys: It almost pains me to include this movie on the list since Zahn gave a pretty great dramatic performance here. The film itself though? Crap.
