Quiz: The
Worst Films
Hollywood's Best
Actors Were In

While climbing to the top of the Hollywood ladder without making a bad movie along the way is possible (hello, John Cazale), it's a feat achieved by precious few. See how much you know about some of the worst movies made by some of our greatest actors.
DiCaprio played Josh in “Critters 3,” which follows the residents of an apartment building as they band together to save themselves from the Critters, a race of carnivorous aliens that are apparently extremely hard to kill. The horror-comedy has few laughs and no scares, earning it a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Dubbed "Denzel Washington's greatest mistake" by The Ringer, 1990's "Heart Condition" is a buddy comedy about a racist cop (Bob Hoskins) who gets the heart of murdered Black lawyer Napoleon Stone (Washington) after his own fails. Worse than that, the ghost of Stone appears before him and won't leave until the cop solves his murder — and yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.
In the 2015 film "Aloha," Stone played Air Force pilot Captain Allison Ng, and if you’re wondering why she played a character with an Asian name, you aren’t alone. At the 2019 Golden Globes, Sandra Oh made a joke about "Crazy Rich Asians" being "the first studio film with an Asian-American lead since 'Ghost in the Shell' and 'Aloha,'" leading Stone to shout "I'm sorry" from the audience.
In "The Circle," Hanks plays Eamon Bailey, the CEO of a tech/social media company who is revealed to be another shady Silicon Valley type. Hanks has admitted his weakness at playing villains, saying, "Bad guys, by and large, require some degree of malevolence that I don't think I can fake," although he has returned to the dark side as Colonel Tom Parker in "Elvis."
As talented as Jackson is, he has loaned his presence to a number of bad movies, though many of them ("Snakes on a Plane," for example) come with a certain B-movie charm. Then there’s 2014's "Kite," a revenge thriller that is bloated, lurid, completely amateurish, and didn’t get a single positive review on Rotten Tomatoes.
