Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

Who’s your movie dealbreaker?

To borrow (and change) a phrase from Liz Lemon: What’s your dealbreaker? A reader emailed me a few days ago with a suggestion for a blog item: asking P & P readers to name the actor/actresses whose presence on a cast list will cause them to skip the movie. In other words, if a movie has, say, Adam Sandler in it, you won’t watch it — even if your friends love it and it gets great reviews. The person suggesting this subject named Sandler; also Ashton Kutcher, Sean Penn, Robin Williams, Nicholas Cage, Rob Schneider, Jeff Goldblum, Denise Richards, Diane Keaton (except for “Annie Hall”), Eliza Dushku, and Jennifer Aniston. How about you? Is there someone out there who’s a dealbreaker for you? Is there a performer who just drives you crazy?
I think this might make a fun discussion (though let’s not get bogged down with arguing about other people’s choices — hey, I love Diane Keaton, but to each their own). I’m not going to name my own dealbreakers, because my job requires me to show up at movies and give them the benefit of the doubt, no matter who’s in them — until the movie starts, anyway. (And sometimes even Adam Sandler surprises me.) But I’m interested in hearing who makes you stay away. Let’s name some names.
