    Quite a cast indeed but this one tops my personal list of the worst fucking movies ever made.
    Damn, we're in a tight spot!

    Could be why I forgot about Leslie Neilsen, it's gotta be 30 years since I've seen that movie.

    And no plans to see it again either.

    The Thin Red Line, for sure.
    Heat
    Red Dawn!
    Young Guns
    Most Nolan movies have A+ casts
    Point Break, obviously.

    Fast Times had a pretty good cast when you think about it.

    When you think about it, you'd pretty much have to say that about any movie with Sean Penn and Jennifer Jason Leigh in it. And Eric Stoltz, Forrest Whittaker, and Anthony Edwards, etc.

    Mystic River.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Good one... another great Sean Penn movie with a great cast: State of Grace


    Not Sean Penn, but amazing cast: The Player

    Seems like pretty much anyone who was around Hollywood at the time, was given a part in this.

    Now that you mention it, Robert Altman had a real talent for assembling really, really good casts. He might have missed on a few, but not many.

    True... Got to hang with him and cast once at the screening of his final movie, Prairie Home Companion... bonus points?

    Oh yeah, very cool - major points. I wouldn't mind hanging a little with Meryl Streep and Lily fuckin Tomlin at all.

    Do you know what "nemesis" means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt... me.

    Phil, you forgot Tom Waits. Love that movie.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Royal Tenenbaum's has a great cast, for sure.

    MASH would have to win in the "bunch of nobodies (at the time)" category.

    For one that hasn't been mentioned - I Heart Huckabee's has Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law and Naomi Watts being generally awesome, Mark Wahlberg being himself (a good thing, in this case), Jason Schwartzman not ruining it, a number of good actors in small parts (Isabelle Huppert, Richard Jenkins, Tippi Hedren, probably more) and a couple of before-they-were-bigs (Jonah Hill and Isla Fisher). And a cameo from Shania Twain.
    We heard you in our twilight caves, one hundred fathom deep below, for notes of joy can pierce the waves, that drown each sound of war and woe.

    Can't believe no one's said The Departed

    Serious mix of bad ass talent. I thought Alec Baldwin redeemed himself here. Jack wasn't too bad, either.
