Ten Inadvisable Movie Performances From the Past Decade
Stardom is like any great game of strategy -- it's both a combination of blind luck and a series of carefully calculated decisions. This decade produced several regrettable ones -- here's ten of the worst.
10. Cuba Gooding Jr. as Jerry Robinson in Boat Trip (2002)
Having coasted into the new century on the gilded wings of an Oscarcorn, it seemed nothing could stop the irrespressible Jerry Maguire breakout with the currency-related catchphrase. Then, uh, Boat Trip happened, and a link between actor, terrible movies, and the gay cruise circuit was forged for all eternity. That he chose to follow it up by going F.R. in Radio didn't help matters.
9. Chris Klein as Jonathan Cross in Rollerball (2002)
The American Pie golden boy only upped his cred with his turn as Election's endowed jocktard, but the next logical step -- action hero on wheels -- turned into a multi-vehicle collision with one of the decade's most infamous bombs. How bad was it? So bad, in fact, it brought a federal indictment for its director.
8. The Entire Cast of Scooby-Doo in Scooby Doo (2002)
Freddie, Freddie-Doo, where are you? You're somewhere voicing Delgo! Sarah Gellar who? Lillard, too! This didn't very well go.
