    "Out of the Furnace" is the most recent one I've seen that fits the bill. Bale, Affleck, Dafoe, Harrelson, Saldana, Whitaker.

    "The Counselor" had quite a cast, but the reviews were so bad that I never saw it.

    I liked parts of Sphere. It also taught me the word "manifest"

    It's a case of an over-ambitious project in which the source material is simply never meant to transfer well from novel to the big screen.

    I saw it and I could definitely tell it's based on a novel. Characters would go into monologues that works well in print but just look flat out awkward on screen.

    -Dennis Quaid
    -Naomi Watts
    -Liev Schrieber
    -Terrence Howard

    -Richard Gere
    -Uma Thurman
    -Emma Stone

    Amen.

    I read reviews and I was thinking they were just off because it was too much or something.

    Holy shit they were right.

    I walked out of that movie. I can't remember the last movie I walked out of before that and I'm almost 30.

    I thought it was from an original script McCarthy wrote? (not that that excuses it being bad...)

    Alexis Bledel
    Rosario Dawson
    Benicio Del Toro
    Michael Clarke Duncan
    Josh Hartnett
    Jaime King
    Michael Madsen
    Brittany Murphy
    Clive Owen
    Mickey Rourke
    Bruce Willis
    Elijah Wood

    just to mention a few.

    the bigger question is, what motivated you to walk in to that movie?

    Never heard of this movie before so looked it up on rottentomato. Has a 4% rating and the reviews are hilarious.

    Movie 43 would be a good one if it didn't look like a steaming pile of shit going into the movie. I don't think anyone expected it to be good.
