Mmm... steak.

Reminds me of one of my favorite movie moments. In His Girl Friday, Cary Grant is asked to describe his ex-wife's new fiancé (played by Ralph Bellamy) and says "He looks like Ralph Bellamy".

:D That popped into my head with all the Coming to America / Trading Places talk. That and the A&OL gravestone.

Mel Gibson in Father's Day - not good or bad, just because he was the last person I was expecting to look like a pin cushion in a Robin Williams movie.

That was such a brilliant line, I actually did a double take, my head going "But that is ralph Bellamy! That's so awesome."

Everytime I see that movie I feel insulted when they are in the disco in Bratislava. The techno version of Scotty doesn't know comes on and instead of giving the audience the tiniest bit of credit that we can hear the tune and know what's happening, one of the characters has to say to the other "hey, that sounds familar."
The :) means it's all ok.

I didn't know George Lucas directed it!
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

Worst Cameos Ever

#38 Post by Paul » 01 Feb 2006, 13:01

I think the movie with the absolute worst cameos ever was The Thin Red Line. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I remember they had George Clooney, John Travolta, Jim Caviezel, Woody Harrelson, John Cusack, Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, and few others that I can't remember. The worst part was that a lot of them were in for like 5 minutes and George Clooney was like 10 seconds. I thought Woody Harrelson and John Travolta were going to be main characters but they only lasted a few minutes. Then John Cusack just came out of no where. I found the whole thing quite irritating.

I would hardly call Jim Caviezel's and Sean Penn's roles in that film "cameos." A cameo, to me, is usually a walk-on role used for a laugh or just simple face recognition. Those two were in the 90% of the film. Plus the original cut (6hrs long!) had a lot more time for quite a few of the other actors you mentioned, including certain actors who were completely cut out of the film, like Gary Oldman, Viggo Mortensen and Mickey Rourke.

Great cameo, not a great film...which probably defines a great cameo:

Kevin Bacon, Novocaine.

Some of the most shameless and historically worthless cameos can be found in the original Around the World in Eighty Days. "Hey, it's Frank Sinatra".

All the cameos from Half baked were fun.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

That's a good one, too. I'm not wild about Kevin's non-cameo career, however. Maybe he should stick to less than a minute screentime per film. Someone bring a stopwatch the next time he shows up at a set.

As you may not find a living soul with anything positive to say about CRII, why wouldn't Frank suck as much as everybody else?

But Around the World in Eighty Days actually "won" the Oscar for "best picture"
