Granted, he didn't have much of one afterwards, but honestly, this should have halted it completely.

Oh my God you are right. At least the second one has the excuse of not having much experience.

In O'Neal's defense, "Oh man!" is about as ridiculous a line of dialog as anyone could write for that moment. He was great in Paper Moon.

Tough Guys Don't Dance. Written and directed by Norman Mailer, who deserves all the blame.

There is an interview on the DVD with Norman Mailer where he talks about that scene...to sum up; everyone told him to cut it out, he didn't because he felt it needed to be over the top, he later regretted not cutting it and Ryan O'Neal never forgave him for leaving that scene in.

In my mind, his career began and ended with Barry Lyndon.

To be fair, he was at least 'not terrible' in Walter Hill's 'The Driver'. Cool movie BTW.

I love the fly on that kid's forehead as he yells, "Oh my gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood!" Awesome.

However, the first clip is actually worse.

I actually like Barry Lyndon, despite Ryan O'Neal.

What does she say before he does the "oh, man oh, god" bit.

"Your pet killed them?"

OH MAN!

I think Ryan had some pretty decent roles in the 70's:

The Thief Who Came to Dinner
The Driver
What's up Doc?
Barry Lyndon
Paper Moon

If any actor has at least 5 decent roles, they're not all hack in my book.

Apparently that kid's line delivery in that particular take was so good the fly wasn't enough to to use an alternate. :lol:

O'Neal seems to be acting just fine in that clip. It's the script, direction and editing that blow. Now the Troll kid, on the other hand, isn't even acting.

OH MAN!

I hear "How's your pet? Kill them!"

I can't stop watching this. What were they thinking?

Does anyone know Isabella Rossellini? Maybe she remembers the line.

I think he was good twice.

Paper Moon
Barry Lyndon

Great directors got a good performance out of him.

I've only seen him in:
Love Story
What's up Doc?
Paper Moon
The Driver

and thought he gave strong performances.

I think the problem there is the writing not the delivery
prior to clicking to play the frame it shows is him holding the letter. I was expecting to see him actually reading something off of it

Apparently they even played up the cheesiness of the line for the ad campaign...

Now I want to see this movie. :lol:

....damn that was a ballsy trailer. Only Cannon would do these trailers.

The first 3 "Oh man!" aren't funny, but that 4th one is so casual and out of place its hilarious.

I almost wish someone would redo just that scene with either a Minnesota accent or, since its on a beach, a shirtless Matthew McConaughey.

He was perfectly fine in his role in Zero Effect, which I've always enjoyed as a highly underrated film. Really, with the clip in the OP, a director's got to bear the brunt of the blame for a scene like that. It's so fucking atrocious that you either find another way to do it or cut it entirely.
