Worst Acting Performances of All Time

The Top Ten Worst Acting Performances of All Time

1 Arnold Schwarzenegger - Batman and Robin

Actually, it's so bad it's good! It pains me to say this, but he's actually the only enjoyable thing in the movie.

2 John Stockwell - Dangerously Close (1986)

John Stockwell is unconvincing in a villainous role, coming off as forced - MonkeeJuice

3 John Travolta - Battlefield Earth

Why is Zac Efron #1? He wasn't even a little bad in that movie. Now this would definitely get top spot from me.

John Travolta can be a good actor, but in this movie he is awful, just awful. "When yiu werre lirning to spell your Name, I was be trained how to connquer galexyss. " Worst acting.

4 Adam Sandler - Jack and Jill

Adam sander acts poorly in all of his films!

Adam Sandler hasn’t been funny since he left SNL

5 Dev Patel - The Last Airbender

They were all and, but that guy who played aang was FAR worse. At least Patel had a few less-horrendous lines, that aang kid never got another part in anything.

Everybody in this film was terrible. The only exception is probably the actor who played Iroh.

6 Robert De Niro - The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

I Loved him in Goodfellas and Raging Bull but why in the world would he even consider doing such a role like this. - egnomac

De Niro's movie career really went from good to bad to worst.

Terrible. Just the worst de Niro performance ever

7 Nicolas Cage - The Wicker Man

Step AWAY from the BIKE!

Agreed. But it's so funny that it gets a pass.

No, not the bees! Not the bees! AAH! AAH! They're in my eyes! My eyes! ARGH! AARLRLRRLLRGH!


8 Elizabeth Berkley - Showgirls

At least you got to see our favorite save by the bell girl unleash her sexy side.

9 Jake Lloyd - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
10 Bob Hoskins - Super Mario Bros.

Even Hoskins stated that he hated this performance.

The Newcomers

? Kyle MacLachlan - Showgirls
? Hayden Christensen - Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones

I got splinters watching it

The worst...simply terrible.

The Contenders

11 Christopher Walken - The Country Bears

Why did the world let this movie exist? I think this is proof that God is dead.

Walken's worst pf ever.

12 Mariah Carey - Glitter
13 Ahmed Best - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
14 Zac Efron - High School Musical

Oh man. Zac's attitude was so gay in this movie! It just bugs me to the point of disgust!

But I actually have a bigger gripe - after this movie, a lot of girls seemed to fall in love with him! Justin Beiber related problem?

15 Tom Green - Freddy Got Fingered

The absolute best worst acting performance of all time.

"WE CAN LIVE LIKE KINNNGS! " - xandermartin98

16 Halle Berry - Catwoman
17 Tommy Wiseau - The Room

The guy directed, produced and performed in "the room" and made possibly the most infamous movie of all time that is so bad that it's fun to watch how bad it is. Seriously just YouTube it and watch his completely off timing and pronunciations of sentences in the English language.

This is the worst acting performance ever. Period. - MontyPython

He's like Daniel day Lewis on Opposite Day...

18 Sandra Bullock - All About Steve

I think this proves how Sandra Bullock is so overrated.

19 Sylvester Stallone - Spy Kids 3-D


20 Marlon Wayans - White Chicks

Any wayans brother can be added to this category, terrible performances in terrible movies!

21 Orlando Bloom - Black Hawk Down

His voice was all over the place I didn't know whether he was American or English, The Worst Acting performance. All the acting in this movie is bad, accept Josh Hartnett.

I love it how he tries to do an American accent, he should never act in American movie, unless he is an Englishmen, he just stuffed up his role for sure - roblist

Worst acting period, every actor in this movie was bad, Josh Hartnett was good though

28 Shaquille O'Neal - Kazaam

A lot of these performances aren't even that bad, but Shaq's performance in this movie is truly awful.
