Nearly four decades of film work stand in awe of the moment that the world first witnessed Susan Sarandon in her first feature film role, and the actress is as glorious as ever. Still, she has appeared in many crappy films, and here are the top eleven picks:
Speed Racer: In an amusing twist, the Wachoswki brothers nearly instantaneously destroyed nearly all of the good will generated by the Matrix and its (unworthy) progeny. Such a shame.
The Lovely Bones: Remember when nearly every critic believed (during production) that this would be an Oscar-worthy flick? Ha.
Compromising Positions: Pure suburbia. Pure cheese. Pure crap.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps: Dare I say that Oliver Stone went for the lure of the almighty dollar when accepting the gig of directing this sequel? How ironic.
The January Man: Some might call this movie “misunderstood,” but they neglect to mention its abundant plot holes.
Stepmom: This was ultimately a very depressing movie that filmmakers tried (sort of hard) to balance with the (nonexistent) charm of Julia.
Cats & Dogs: If you’ve seen this movie, then you understand why it made the list. Enough said.
The Banger Sisters: Oh Susan. Oh Goldie. Oh crap.
Shall We Dance: Here stands yet another unnecessary Hollywood remake.
Elizabethtown: This movie made me want to climb into the fabled Murdertank and run over all Manic Pixie Dream Girls in manner of Mr. Bill.
Mr. Woodcock: Billy Bob Thornton’s talent was wasted on this forgettable variant on his “sociopath charms the world” theme … not to mention the abilities of Sarandon as well.
