Steve Carell is revered as one of the greatest comedic actors of his age, and the sheer number of movies he's starred in over the years is a testament to just how popular he is. From his starring role in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and his iconic performance as the bizarre weatherman Brick Tamland in "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," Carrell has had his share of hit films.
Carell has also started taking on more serious projects, such as his leading role in the Apple TV drama series "The Morning Show" or his riveting performance in "The Big Short." He has established himself as a versatile actor who is phenomenal in just about every role he takes on, which is why it may surprise some fans to learn just how much of a disaster his feature film debut was.
That film was director John Hughes’ “Curly Sue,” the lowest-rated film of Carell's career, which has only a 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Carell's entire role in the movie is essentially a nonverbal head-nod, and considering how small his role is, the film's lack of appeal is hardly his fault.
