The Quick 1. 0: 1. Grown Up Facts About Dr. Seuss. 1. Sylvester Stallone, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. Sly doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to his film career. Despite co- starring with the delightful Estelle Getty as the titular violence- prone mother, Stallone knows just how bad the film was: "I made some truly awful movies. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was the worst.

Alec Guinness, Star Wars. By the time he played Obi- Wan Kenobi in 1. Star Wars: A New Hope, Guinness had already appeared in cinematic classics like The Bridge on the River Kwai, Great Expectations and Lawrence of Arabia. During production, Guinness is reported to have said the following: "Apart from the money, I regret having embarked on the film. I like them well enough, but it's not an acting job, the dialogue - which is lamentable - keeps being changed and only slightly improved, and I find myself old and out of touch with the young."The insane amount of fame he won for the role as the wise old Jedi master took him somewhat by surprise and, ultimately, annoyed him. In his autobiography A Positively Final Appearance: A Journal, Guinness recalls a time he encountered an autograph- seeking fan who boasted to him about having watched Star Wars more than 1.
In response, Guinness agreed to provide the boy an autograph under the condition that he promise never to watch the film again. Bob Hoskins, Super Mario Brothers. He was in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
As far as I’m concerned, Bob Hoskins is forgiven for Super Mario Bros. Hoskins, though, doesn’t seem to be able to forgive himself. Last year the Guardian spoke with the veteran actor about his career and he summed up his feelings rather succinctly: What is the worst job you've done? Super Mario Brothers. What has been your biggest disappointment? Super Mario Brothers. If you could edit your past, what would you change?
I wouldn't do Super Mario Brothers. George Clooney, Batman & Robin. Sure, Batman & Robin made money. But by every other imaginable measure, the film was a complete failure, and a nightmare to the vast majority of the Caped Crusader’s most fervent fanatics. Star George Clooney recognized what a stinker he helped create and once plainly stated, “I think we might have killed the franchise.”5. David Cross, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. When actors have a movie out, it's customary that they publicize the film by saying nice things about it.
Earlier this year David Cross took a different approach. When it came to describing his new film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, the veteran comedian — better known for Mr.
Show and Arrested Development — went on Conan and called the film a “big commercial for Carnival Cruise Lines” and told people not to go see it. Katherine Heigl, Knocked Up. Judd Apatow’s unplanned pregnancy comedy was a huge hit and helped cement her status as a bankable film actress.
After the film’s release, however, Heigl didn’t have all good things to say. In fact, what she specifically said about it was that the film was: "…A little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun- loving guys.”7. Charlize Theron, Reindeer Games. The 2. 00. 0 action film Reindeer Games starred Ben Affleck, Gary Sinese and Charlize Theron and was directed by John Frankenheimer.
But it all somehow failed to come together. In the end the film lost a lot of money and compiled a wealth of negative reviews – including one from its star actress who simply said, “Reindeer Games was not a good movie.”8. Mark Wahlberg, The Happening. Mark Wahlberg doesn’t exactly seem like a guy who lives his life afraid of trees. But that is the odd position M. Night Shyamalan’s 2.
The Happening put him in. Wahlberg, as it turns out, doesn’t look back too fondly on the film. He went on record during a press conference for The Fighter when he described a conversation with a fellow actor: "We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to … I don’t want to tell you what movie … alright “The Happening.” F*** it. It is what it is.
F***ing trees, man. The plants. F*** it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook."9. John Cusack, Better Off Dead. John Cusack reportedly hated his cult 8. Steve Holland that Better Off Dead was "the worst thing I have ever seen" and he would "never trust you as a director again."1.

Dr. Seuss Draws Anti- Japanese Cartoons During WWII, Then Atones with Horton Hears a Who! Before Theodor Seuss Geisel AKA Dr. Seuss convinced generations of children that a wocket might just be in their pocket, he was the chief editorial cartoonist for the New York newspaper PM from 1.
During his tenure he cranked out some 4. FDR’s policies, chided isolationists like Charles Lindbergh and supported civil rights for blacks and Jews. He also staunchly supported America’s war effort. To that end, Dr. Seuss drew many cartoons that, to today’s eyes, are breathtakingly racist. Check out the cartoon above.
It shows an arrogant- looking Hitler next to a pig- nosed, slanted- eye caricature of a Japanese guy. The picture isn't really a likeness of either of the men responsible for the Japanese war effort – Emperor Hirohito and General Tojo. Instead, it’s just an ugly representation of a people. In the battle for homeland morale, American propaganda makers depicted Germany in a very different light than Japan. Germany was seen as a great nation gone mad. The Nazis might have been evil but there was still room for the “Good German.” Japan, on the other hand, was depicted entirely as a brutal monolith; Hirohito and the guy on the street were uniformly evil.
Such thinking paved the way for the U. S. Air Force firebombing of Tokyo, where over 1. Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And it definitely laid the groundwork for one of the sorriest chapters of American 2.
Japanese- Americans. Geisel himself was vocally anti- Japanese during the war and had no trouble with rounding up an entire population of U. S. citizens and putting them in camps. But right now, when the Japs are planting their hatchets in our skulls, it seems like a hell of a time for us to smile and warble: "Brothers!" It is a rather flabby battle cry. If we want to win, we've got to kill Japs, whether it depresses John Haynes Holmes or not. We can get palsy- walsy afterward with those that are left.
Geisel was hardly alone in such beliefs but it’s still disconcerting to see ugly cartoons like these drawn in the same hand that did The Cat in the Hat. In 1. 95. 3, Geisel visited Japan where he met and talked with its people and witnessed the horrific aftermath of the bombing of Hiroshima. He soon started to rethink his anti- Japanese vehemence. So he issued an apology in the only way that Dr. Seuss could. He wrote a children’s book. Slimmers World Meetings. Horton Hears a Who!, published in 1. The book’s hopeful, inclusive refrain – “A person is a person no matter how small” - - is about as far away as you can get from his ignoble words about the Japanese a decade earlier.
He even dedicated the book to “My Great Friend, Mitsugi Nakamura of Kyoto, Japan.”You can view an assortment of Dr. Seuss's wartime drawings in general, and his cartoons of the Japanese in particular, at the Dr. Went to War Archive hosted by UCSD.
