    I understand the distaste for Cage but he still makes the occasional interesting movie that makes the pain worthwhile.:)

    Pacino has been in that category for awhile now. Although I heard he was really good in that HBO movie about Kevorkian from last year.

    There are really no actors whose movie I refuse to watch but there are actors whose movies I tend to avoid. Nic Cage and Brendan Fraser immediately come to mind. But even they have some worthwhile films in their repertoire. I'm willing to give any movie that looks interesting a chance, regardless of who is in it.

    I hate Brendan Fraser, he's awful. I also run away from Sarah Jessica Parker, she scares me and my children.

    No. That was loooong time ago.

    Have you watched Drive Angry? - I did unfortunately, without knowing anything about it. - Damn a horrible and boring movie.

    Yeah, excellent thread. I should put in the caveat that I won't completely avoid these peoples' movies. But it usually severely hinders my enjoyment in certain aspects.

    Actors:
    Russel Brand
    Jay Baruchel
    Jack Black (when not animated)
    Rob Schneider
    Seth Rogan (Just beginning to enter this category - Green Hornet sold me)
    Paul Walker
    Jason Schwartzman
    Cast of Clerks (Just name one of the characters)
    Mark Walhburg



    Actresses:
    Sarah Jessica Parker
    Renee Zellweger
    Ellen Paige
    Uma Thurman

    I will generally avoid any movie with Sean Penn.

    I will absolutely avoid any movie with Dane Cook.
