Great characters in crappy films


#1

Post your favourite characters which appeared in films which overall sucked balls but contained at least one brilliant character



The ingeniously named ‘Sandy Lyle’ (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) from Along Came Polly. The only reason I kept watching the thing!


#2

Good topic.



The only one I can think of now is John Saxton in The Glove.



…and maybe Ernest Borgnine in Vengence is Mine(1974).


#3

sean penn’s character in casualties of war.


#4

When I saw the title of this topic, I immediately thought Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribbean.


#5

yea and mainly because it wasent written that way Depp created the character he should have used it in a better film though.
