    I love watching shit acting.
    Post your examples here.
    Here's a great one that you might have seen before if you ever listened to Adam & Joe on 6 Music:

    Oh god I’d forgotten about this :D Brosnan was filming on location for a film in my next door neighbours flat in Brixton about the time Adam &Joe were doing their bit on this and it took all my strength not to shout it out of my kitchen window at him when I saw him going in :D:oops:

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Back many years ago ...

    Dick van dyke attempting a cockney accent in "Mary Poppins" and the cartoon dancing ... that was truly bad (and scary !)

    I love the ironic bad acting in Dark Place. Absolutely cracks me up.

    For actual bad acting, I love my 80`s Kung Fu Flicks (Jackie Chan especially) and Peter Jackson's `Bad Taste` also comes to mind .
    :D

    No, it really wasn't.

    DaveCinzano WATCH OUT, GEORGE, HE'S GOT A SCREWDRIVER!

    It's irritating because in the book he's an ugly bastard, yet with Brosnan in the lead he's turned into a laid-back, lovable provincial debt collector who's a big hit with the ladies, thus turning most of the plot on its arse.

    Me a few years ago in the play of "Murder at the Vicarage"

    Imagine a cross between Mrs. Overall and Mrs. Brown. With a Wurzels accent :facepalm::facepalm::oops:

    Her acting is not in the same league as the acting that has been posted here. Indeed, the only negative reactions to her acting I've seen are from those MRA types who can't abide any woman being given screen time.
     
  16. Anything William Shatner did.

    Or the fight scene from 'They Live'

    You appear to be attempting to introduce the question of degree in respect of bad acting, should that fail you appear to attempt to go for a vacuous appeal to a meaningless melange of words. I suspect you are looking for an argument, so grab a mirror and stare in to it deeply, appreciatively, and cynically.

    Has anyone ever told you just how pompous you come across? Not a 19th century kind of pompous, more like a neckbeard "m'lady" type of pomposity. The kind that reeks of dictionaryitits.

    We have recently discovered a series of films by a director Robbie Moffat (on Amazon). A set of howlers that will fill anyone's bad acting/writing/directing/cinematography etc needs. One - Seven Crosses - is set in Somerset with a range of accents that swing between Norfolk, Wales and Somersetish and features incestuous farming siblings who do a lot of murdering. I cannot conceive of how his films get financed.

    orlando bloom in the lord of the rings films. I think he was going for "ethereal" - but only got as far as "fart in a trance".
