    Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man!

    Yeah, that’s a good line. That’s gonna be my new ring tone.

    In a few seconds, he has managed to destroy his parent’s and teacher’s years of teaching and training, as much for his creativity as for his capacity for rational thought.

    Meanwhile, some writer deserves some coal in his Christmas stocking, while some director deserves the same but LIT!

  3. Bob says:

    Which reminds me, John – are you ever going to do another Tech 5?

  4. dittmv says:

    This clip has potential! One could add this to the back side of any situation and make it oddly dramatic.

    It reminds me of the way John edited the classic Job, Jobs, Jobs clip. (Yayyy!)

    A: Houston, we have had a problem!?!
    B: Oh God! Oh Man! Oh God! Oh Man! …

  5. Mr Fog says:

    IS that Ryan O’Neal? Not exactly a talented actor to begin with but you know what? Hes not to blame. And probably not the writer either. This looks like 100% director erorr to me.

  6. Mac Guy says:

    Worst acting ever? I guess you’ve never seen the MST3K version of Mitchell.

  7. foobar says:

    Thank God the script didn’t call for him to fake an orgasm.

  8. bobbo, putting the wood in Hollywood says:

    Yeap, couldn’t act his way off stage.

    Then there was Lee Majors.

    Anybody wonder how Farah chose her men?

  9. Heinrich Moltke says:

    W. T. F.

    “This clip has potential! One could add this to the back side of any situation and make it oddly dramatic.”

    I was thinking the same. Could be the next Dramatic Prairie Dog.

  11. Wow - that WAS bad says:

    Thank you for showing that clip. Up until now, I thought the worse movie line ever done was Darth Vader in SW3 screaming “NOOOOO” after hearing of Natalie Portman’s death.

    (For a similarly bad TV line, check out the episode where Angel is trying to give Darla a 2nd chance… As the wooden spikes are closing in on Angel, Julie Benz gives a pretty horrid “Noooo!” of her own.)

  12. John E. Quantum says:

    He was acting?

  13. Mr Fog says:

    #8 Bobbo – By the size of their … uhm … wallets?

  14. WmDE says:

    Q: Is there a reason to go to the beach, stand on a rock and read your mail?

    A: It makes a cheap set.

  15. noneofyourbusiness says:

    As bad as this is, it still pales in comparison to Keanu Reeves’ wonderful acting at the end of Point Break:


  16. Milo says:

    “Tough Guys Don’t Dance”, the worst movie that I love.

  17. whipjacka says:

    to be fair, they didn’t give him much to work with. I’d go with worst scene of all time rather than worst acting

  18. BigBoyBC says:

    I’ve seen worse, the tech grouch comes to mind

  19. admfubar says:

    the oh god, oh man would make great background audio for a tech 5 report.

  20. m says:

    That’s actually very realistic, more realistic then acting use to be. Numb face, jerky repeating movement (including rapid blinking and eye movements), monotonic voice repeating the same thing over and over. A man in chock, if you met him in real life you would understand that immediately (or perhaps not(*)).

    It doesn’t fit in with what people expect of acting, it isn’t entertaining or captivating. But is it bad acting? Isn’t acting supposed to have some degree of realism, this is very realistic, most acting is not realistic at all, it just adhere to ritualized behaviour we learnt to understand from watching a lot of unrealistic acting.

    (*) I once met a man who had catapulted above the handlebar of his bicycle, when the front wheel hit a stone, and hit the ground with his face first. He got all his front teeth’s broken of (yes, broken), they laid upon the ground like pearl bracelet, you could see the impression of his face in the gravel, then he wandered through the dark woods for a couple of miles before he met me. I thought he was stoned and continued in my direction (I was late for work), until I found his bike and teeth and realised what had happened. When I went back to find him, he had disappeared. This give me a really creepy flashback.

    Oh woman! Oh goddess!

  22. bobbo, people who vote Republican are not necessarily stupid, but enough stupid people vote Republican to keep the party alive says:

    #19–m==very empathetic. Thanks. Its easy to notice the stylized acting of an Asian Kung Fu film with them flying thru the air. I start to think that with American action films when 5 people 20 feet away with submachine guns can’t shoot our hero==but you have spoted another trope: being dramatic.

    Yes, good to think about on the next film I watch. So, how good was Brando?

  23. Animal Mother says:

    Dvorak obviously hasn’t seen Troll 2.


  24. Gary says:

    THIS is the worst acting EVER!



    Oh, Yeah, did I mention NSFW?

  25. Uncle Dave says:

    #15: My “favorite” bad Keanu casting was in Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula where he was supposed to play an upper class Bostonian or something. I think they made him an American because he couldn’t do a Brit accent. As if he could do anything but surfer dude-speak.

  26. Mark Baars says:

    Too cool, now I want to see the full movie!
