How can they diss Denise Richard like that?

There are way worse:

Lucille Ball as MAME
Elizabeth Taylor in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

Richards

No! Not Denise Richards and her Oscar-worthy performance!

You must be happy, Bill, that the haters did not put Paris on the list.

(BTW, I liked Heston in TOUCH OF EVIL.)

Happy about PH not being there, but Richards' performance is, as you say, Oscar-worthy. There must be some mistake about putting her here.

They should take Denise out and insert the upcoming Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

Forget the title, but there was a movie about a summer romance with Shirly Booth. Seeing her in a bathing suit was a classic case of miscasting (and costuming) I can think of.

How about Barbra Streisand as a high price call girl in The Owl and the Pussycat.
Or Denise Richards again as a Starship Commander in Starship Troopers.

Bill Crider said...

Denise was outstanding in that one, too.

Good lord, why pick on Wayne and Rooney? THE CONQUEROR was a western with swords, and the Rooney character in TIFFANY'S was a farcical role anyway. It wouldn't have mattered who was cast. These dolts may not realize that in the old days, Asians were usually played by non-Asians, including Brando, Robinson, Muni, Donat, Karloff, Lorre, Guinness, even Woody Strode. Things have changed for the better, but history is history.
