Most overrated actor ever

    For me, it's Al Pacino.

    I think he has had one good performance in the past 30 years, Sea of Love.

    Everything from Scarface on has been this look-at-me screamfest.

    He's done some junk...but he was great in "Carlito's Way", "Glengarry Glen Ross", "Heat," "The Insider", "Insomnia" and "Donnie Brasco". I thought he was kind of understated in a couple of 'em. The problem is that lousy turn he did in "Scent of a Woman" ends up overshadowing some of those other flicks.

    I disagree with much above, but you are right about The Insider. I had forgotten that, a rare instance where he is overshadowed.

    To me, I think it would be Martin Lawrence. And I know I'm the only one that probably thinks this, but Eddie Murphy dosn't make me laugh at all.

    My top three - 1.) Tom Cruise, 2.) Michael Douglas, 3.) Leonardo Dicaprio

    ** Speaking of Al, I'll watch pretty much anything he's in.

    Adam Sandler...he's done some amusing stuff, but he's not that funny. The problem is, he does all these stupid PG-13 comedies...just think how much better "Happy Gilmore" would have been if it was raunchier. He was OK in "Spanglish"...if I were him, I would try to get the sort of family guy roles that Tom Hanks used to knock out of the park and quit the junior high bathroom humor.

    Colin Farrell is tremendously overrated too. Has anyone ever said "Oh, Colin Farrell has a new movie coming out! I can't wait to see it! You know it will be good, because Colin Farrell is in it!" He's a good looking guy who parties a lot. That's it. He's about one more flop movie away from starring in "CSI: Peoria".
