Which actor ruins a movie?

Personally, I can't stand Juliette Lewis. Her acting is terrible, and I just can't stand her. She single-handedly ruined The Way of the Gun (which wasn't that good in the first place), and nearly ruined From Dusk Till Dawn and Natural Born Killers for me.

The pathetic thing is martial arts movies do not really involve all that much acting....

Keanu Reeves, and I don't care that I misspelled his name. I still hope that Coppola pulls a Lucas/Spielberg on Dracula and digitally replace him with a good actor and save a great film.

Easily Helent Hunt.
You just know deep down inside that she's a rabid lesbian who hates men. It's in her eyes.

Rosie Perez. I've still never managed to watch White Men Can't Jump beyond her first scene. She's annoying, her voice grates on my nerves and her mannerisms are distracting. I would gladly contribute to a fund that would raise money to pay her to never appear in another film.
