Top Ten Career-Ruining MoviesThese movies effectively destroyed the career of a famous actor. Although they're obviously still in the acting department, they're very far under the radar.
The Top Ten
This is an awful film
This is a great movie - simpsondude
Because of The phantom menace Loyd Got Bullied At School,Became An Alchoholic,Got Arrested
And he really doesn't have anyone else to blame but himself for this one. - truckturner
Oh yeah. This movie completely drowned Mike's career. It's amazing that The Cat in the Hat didn't do that. - BKAllmighty
It's kinda sad that Mike Myers had destroyed his career with this movie. - Pony
The Cat in the Hat was probably the final nail in the coffin for Mike. - PugaV 2 Comments
He should have used his Sixth Sense to release how bad an idea this movie was. Putting so many hours of animation into a short length of time... bad idea from a Avatar: The Last Airbender fan.
He made some bad movies before this, but The Last Airbender is the movie that put M. Night Shyamalan's once-promising career into the toilet.
No it was After Earth that destroyed it
But A Miracle Happened In 2017, Split Ended Up Great - JPK
No one ever spoke of her again because of this movie.
At least he came back with Bolt. I honestly thought that movie was pretty good.
As great as Chris O'Donnel is, this movie makes me go "Teenage Chris O'Donnell?! More like Teenage Mike O'Donnell". I will admit, that Batman & Robin is a so-bad-it's-good movie.
Yep it's true. She got a razzie for it. This movie had awful CGI! - flamingsoul
It killed his career but in a different way to the rest: It killed his passion for the business so he retired voluntarily. Funny thing is, it's not a terrible movie, just disappointing. - truckturner
Oh, how I feel sorry for Connery for having to take part in this joke of a movie. - PositronWildhawk
He picked this over Lord of The Rings?!?!?
Sad, too sad - Gamer231
It's won more Razzies than any other movie, so it kinda killed her career. - Turkeyasylum
Ever hear of Argo? It's nonsense to state that a bad project or 2 "ruined" the careers of some of these very successful actors whose careers have been fine - some highs, some lows, as any busy entertainer will likely have - Billyv
This movie didn't ruin his career.
She hasn't been in a single film since this one. And that's sad because she was in two movies that I liked as a kid (Mrs. Doubtfire, and Matilda) Also, HOW THE HELL DID THEY CAST ALEC BALDWIN AND PETER FONDA? IT MAKES NO SENSE!
(P.S. I've never seen an episode of Thomas before and I don't intend to) - BigBerry25
How did this destroy Hamill's career?
Vote if you suck. This is the best movie ever! At least in my opinion. - RalphBob
What "career" did he even have to potentially ruin? Lol - Billyv
After many bad movies in her acting career, this is the one that finally led her to stop doing films permanently. - Dancedom
He's the famous Italian actor/director who won Best Actor for Life is Beautiful.
I don't even know who this is anyway.
I'm glad this destroyed his career. He's always been and always will be an awful actor. He will not be missed.
Well Sort Of
She's actually good in this movie. The then unknown Naomi Watts who plays Jetgirl in this movie became a big star. Lori Petty on the other hand who has not stopped working in the movie industry never made it big afterwards but I don't think that it is this movie who ruined her career. It's the bad choises in bad movies or T.V.-shows that ruined ( ruined is maybe a little bit exagerated because she still works as an actress ) her career.
He's 77 years old, and this is what he gives us after such a long, amazing career? A poop emoji performance? - 445956
It should be known that John Stockwell wrote the script or was 1 of 3 co-writers. Whether it was because of having more that 1 writer than necessary, having muddled direction by Albert Pyun, or being produced by Cannon which led to the film being panned by many critics including Roger Ebert and probably why John Stockwell never was giving another starring role which is why he since became a director. - MonkeeJuice
