These 19 Accents Were So Bad, They Almost Ruined the Movie

When an actor gets an accent wrong, it can be annoying or make the movie less believable. A recent online survey said, “Name a movie where a bad accent takes you out of the movie.” Here are the top responses.

“The therapist in The Departed has a heavy Boston accent for exactly one scene, and the rest is normal.”

“You’re going to mention The Departed but not Ray Winston’s insane accent throughout the film?”

Keanu Reeves in Dracula

“The gold standard in terrible accents.”

Kevin Costner in Robin Hood

“It gave us the great joke in Men in Tights: ‘Unlike some Robin Hoods, I speak with an English accent.’”

“Not bothering would have been better. A natural American accent would be fine. It’s like he couldn’t decide which one to use and for how long.”

“That’s the yardstick, man.”

“Ha, yeah, the epitome of bad accents. Truly awful.”

“He sounded Australian, South African, everything but West End hooligan! It was horrible.”

“Have you heard his real-life accent?! It’s incredibly bizarre.”

“Nicole Kidman in The Northman gave us a one-woman vocal tour of most of Scandinavia and a bit of Holland.”

Julie Benz in Boondocks Saints 2

“That detective lady in Boondocks Saints 2 and, well, honestly, 99% of the actors when they try and do a southern accent. It annoys this Texan. If you want a Southern voice in the movie, just get a Southern actor to play the part.”

“You hardly ever hear a southern accent that’s not ridiculously exaggerated. Less is more.”

Lady Gaga in House of Gucci

“Lady Gaga in House of Gucci either sounds Russian or like an Italian American trying their best at an Italian accent.”

Julianne Moore in Hannibal

“ I looked into it, and it appears she grew up a military brat who moved around a lot and lived in several Southern states. She must’ve thought she could do a Southern accent, but she should’ve hired a coach. So bad. One of the worst.”

Emily Blunt in Sicario

“Emily Blunt’s American accent in Sicario was distracting.”

Brad Pitt in Inglorious Basterds

“Brad Pitt’s accent is supposed to be a parody, though.”

Sam Neill in Peaky Blinders

“Not a movie, but Inspector Campbell in Peaky Blinders. I almost stopped watching season 2. It was so bad.”

Carrie Fisher in Star Wars

“Carrie Fisher is British in some scenes in Star Wars: A New Hope and then not in others. It’s very confusing.”

“There’s actually a reason for this: She’s mocking Grand Moff Tarkin & the Empire in general. The scenes in which she’s “Mid-Atlantic” are the scenes where she’s speaking to imperial officers or Tarkin himself.”

Nic Cage in Con Air

“You might know that accent guy on Youtube who rates and discusses accents and idiolects in films. He watches a bit of Cage, turns to the camera, and just says, “I don’t know what that is.” and then moves on to the next movie.”

Daniel Craig’s in Knives Out

“Daniel Craig’s in Knives Out is cartoonish awful.”

“It is cartoonish, but I love it.”

Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch

“Her Russian accent sounds like someone who read a description of a Russian accent and never heard it. It’s forced, and every time I hear her try, it takes me right out of whatever else they were trying to do.”

“In fairness to her, she’s doing an accent from a fictional country. Sokovian can sound like whatever she wants it to.”

“I couldn’t even tell what kind of accent he was going for.”

Lindsey Lohan’s in The Parent Trap

“Lindsey Lohan’s English accent in The Parent Trap. But she was a kid, so I can’t be too hard on her.”
