60. 'Blown Away' (1994)

For one of our greatest actors, Jeff Bridges has a few honest-to-goodness, claw-your-eyes-out-with-a-rusty-spoon-stinkers on his resumé. This ridiculous movie was doomed to be known mainly as The Other Mad Bomber Flick, given that it had the misfortune to come out the same year as the Keanu Reeves classic Speed. Maybe that wasn't such bad luck after all. Listen to Tommy Lee Jones and Bridges both attempting Irish accents – the former is the crazy bombmaker with a serious chip on his shoulder, the latter is the Boston explosives disposal expert who was once his student (long story) – and you can tell this one was doomed to fail right from the get-go. Why even bother to casting two such great actors if you're not going to give them anything interesting to do except make asses of themselves?
