Top Ten Most Career-Ruining Movies

These 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
1 Jake Lloyd - Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

This is an awful film

This is a great movie

2 Elizabeth Berkley - Showgirls

No one ever spoke of her again because of this movie.

3 Mike Myers - The Love Guru

Oh yeah. This movie completely drowned Mike's career. It's amazing that The Cat in the Hat didn't do that.

It's kinda sad that Mike Myers had destroyed his career with this movie.

And he really doesn't have anyone else to blame but himself for this one.

The Cat in the Hat was probably the final nail in the coffin for Mike.

4 M. Night Shyamalan - The Last Airbender

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.

5 John Travolta - Battlefield Earth

At least he came back with Bolt. I honestly thought that movie was pretty good.

6 Chris O'Donnell - Batman & Robin

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.

7 Cuba Gooding Jr. - Snow Dogs
8 Brandon Routh - Superman Returns
9 Halle Berry - Catwoman
10 Geena Davis - Cutthroat Island
The Contenders
11 Lindsay Lohan - I Know Who Killed Me

It's won more Razzies than any other movie, so it kinda killed her career.

12 Sean Connery - The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

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.

Oh, how I feel sorry for Connery for having to take part in this joke of a movie.

13 Kevin Costner - Waterworld
14 Demi Moore - Striptease
15 Haley Joel Osment - AI: Artificial Intelligence
16 Mara Wilson - Thomas and the Magic Railroad
17 Mark Hamill - Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
18 Madonna - Swept Away

After many bad movies in her acting career, this is the one that finally led her to stop doing films permanently.

19 Tom Green - Freddy Got Fingered
20 Ben Affleck - Gigli
21 Roberto Benigni - Pinocchio

He's the famous Italian actor/director who won Best Actor for Life is Beautiful.

I don't even know who this is anyway.

22 Jennifer Lopez - Gigli
23 Pauly Shore - Bio-Dome
24 Jamie Kennedy - Son of the Mask
25 Jim Caviezel - The Passion of the Christ
