The Worst Movie with the Best Cast

Here's something fun for your first day back at work. Have you seen the 1998 movie The Avengers? If you haven't you must, if only to test your cinematic fortitude. We all know Uma and Sean have been in some stinkers, but for the most part they are respected actors. And Ralph Fiennes has an excellent track record. Either no one read the script or this seemed a lot better on paper. The acting is abysmally over-the-top or nonexistent. Poor Fiennes apparently decided to ignore the fact he was in the movie at all and went to his happy place. Thurman was confused, the plot made no sense, (even in a we-meant-to-do-that way) and-and- the bears...oh, the bears.
Mercifully we have it on VIDEO, not DVD. Full-screen might make your head explode. But maybe even the Video would have that effect. Try it!

The views expressed in this blog do not express those of the library. No kidding.

Still, it's no "Attack of the Killer Tomatos" (as pictured in your most excellent graphic)!
