I know this has been done before, but what the hell…
I’m watching Michael Collins at the moment, and Julia Roberts’s Irish accent is making my ears bleed. The poor love also repeats the same aural atrocity in Mary Reilly.
Keanu Reeves’s accent (combined with his lack of acting talent) positively ruined Dracula for me.
And of course, “Dick Van Dyke” is synonymous with dreadful accents.
Of course, I’m viewing this from an Anglo-Irish POV. I’m guessing Anthony Hopkins’s “American” accent in various movies leaves a lot to be desired, for example.
What are the ghastliest accents you’ve ever heard in movies?
