Great movies almost ruined by one bad performance
Every team has its weak link, and while a person generally doesn't achieve Hollywood star status without possessing at least a modicum of talent, every movie's cast definitely has its stragglers. Every film fan is familiar with the sinking realization that they've put themselves in front of a movie that holds up in just about every respect…except for one cast member's distractingly bad performance. You know that moment — the one when you're watching a great movie, and you're taken out of it every time a particular actor shows up onscreen and throws the whole thing out of whack with work that's clearly disconnected from everything else that's happening in the film.
