Blown Saves: The 25 Most Miscast Action Heroes In Movies

24. HALLE BERRY AS PATIENCE PHILLIPS/CATWOMAN IN CATWOMAN (2004)

If Beavis and Butthead were casting agents, this is a move that they’d make, chuckling the entire time Halle Berry first tried on her S&M-knockoff Catwoman suit. Not that we’re complaining on that front; the costume’s generosity was the only good thing about this infamously rotten calamity. Unable to efficiently capitalize on her 2001 Academy Award win for Monster’s Ball, Berry foolishly signed on to this mess, though she should’ve never gotten the call in the first place. Her performance is overly campy, the work of an actress who realizes she’s making dreck and tries to overcompensate. Still, if a gal is going to fail wretchedly, she might as well do it in a ripped-up leather outfit.
