And Justice for All… (1979) – An ethical Baltimore defense lawyer disgusted with rampant legal corruption is asked to defend a judge he despises in a rape trial. But if he doesn’t do it, the judge will have him disbarred…his performance in this film is the first time he did a “hoo-haw” type of performance…over the type and so annoying to watch
Jack and Jill (2011) – Family guy Jack Sadelstein prepares for the annual event he dreads: the Thanksgiving visit of his twin sister, the needy and passive-aggressive Jill, who then refuses to leave
Cruising (1980) – A police detective goes undercover in the sleazy and underground gay subculture of New York City to catch a serial killer who is murdering numerous gay men with S&M tactics
Gigli (2003) – The violent story about how a criminal lesbian, a tough-guy hit-man with a heart of gold, and a retarded man came to be best friends through a hostage…his character is named Starkman. Does this mean he’s a superhero? If so, why didn’t he save this film from being the piece of crap that it is?
Revolution (1985) – The film stars Al Pacino as a New York fur trapper who involuntarily gets enrolled in the Revolutionary forces during the American Revolutionary War
Ocean’s Thirteen (2007) – Danny Ocean rounds up the boys for a third heist, after casino owner Willy Bank double-crosses one of the original eleven, Reuben Tishkoff…as if we needed another one of these?
Any Given Sunday (1999) – behind the scenes look at the life and death struggles of modern day gladiators and those who lead them…when was the last time you even heard someone mention this movie – besides right now?
88 Minutes (2008) – On the day that a serial killer that he helped put away is supposed to be executed, a noted forensic psychologist and college professor receives a call informing him that he has 88 minutes left to live….this means that, at 108 minutes, this movie is 20 minutes too long.July 23, 2012 at 11:36 am #539131
Where is “Scent of a Woman?” That movie is terrible!!!!!!July 23, 2012 at 11:43 am #539132
His performance in that film is ridiculously over the top, but the film is actually quite nice to watch at least once. Expertly paced, well-written (structurally) and Chris O’Donnell has a good part for the only time in his career…plus, if that film didn’t exist, we wouldn’t be able to call Al Pacino an Oscar winner…July 23, 2012 at 11:44 am #539133
I think it is Revolution because not only is the movie poor but he is poor in it. He just has a small role in Gigli but Revolution was all bad.July 23, 2012 at 4:36 pm #539134
My vote is for “Revolution” because this was Al’s first bad performance and the film itself was bad despite all the talent involved in it (Pacino, Donald Sutherland, Nastassja Kinski). Got him his first Razzie nomination.
