    Nailed It!
    Gal Gabot as Wonder Woman
    Patrick Stewart as Jean Luc Picard (We've been binging TNG during lockdown)

    (Sarcastic) Nailed It?
    Kristen Stewart almost anything, always looks like she is trying to remember her lines.
    Kevin Costner as Robin Hood, starts with British accent loses it 5 mins in.

    Costner was a pretty big draw at that time I think. The failed English accent after about the first 5 minutes of the movie is what makes it classic. Add in that Christian Slater has a pretty perfect early 90s haircut, the wind chimed hook of 'Everything I do' throughout and a movie that's....action? dark comedy? and it's badly great.

    Alan Rickman was actually perfect as the sheriff.

    Yes! Plus a Brian Adam's love song! An amazingly great bad movie!

    Randy Quiad as cousin Eddy, Bill Murray in Caddyshack, and Sean William Scott as Stiffler in the American Pie movies come to mind.

    I like Kevin Costner in a lot of movies but Bull Durham may be one of his best fits. I know it's not a movie but Costner is really damn good in the TV show Yellowstone right now. Anyone who has not watched the first 2 seasons of that show ought to be binge watching it right now because they are missing out

    I'm not a physics scholar but I think there's just no way this works at all.

    Keanu Reeves as John Wick was a perfect cast. Hell - Keanu Reeves in almost anything is a perfect cast.

    Winner. This was the pinnacle of 90's crap. People can dog on it all they want, but it was huge at the time. Huge. Of course I went to it, but everyone went to it. Christain Slater was in flames at the time and Costner was somehow the biggest. A Connery appearance was big at the time, as he wouldn't ruin any credibility he ever had for another 5 years by filming The Rock.

    2nd grossing film of the year after T2.

    That wind chimed hook went #1 in 16 countries and was the Billboard #1 song of the year. Jesus, Bryan Adams was huge in the 80's and early 90's and everyone wants to act like it never happened. Our little friend from the North could do no wrong.

    I personally think it kind of sucks, but I like it and have watched it a million times, especially when it was a somewhat newer release on HBO.

    He is pretty well cast in everything. You know else is? Robert Duvall.

    That’s a good one. I can’t imagine anyone else playing him. The other one Id say is Pratt as Starlord.

    The movie totally sucks. But I love it, and if it's on, I watch the crap out of it. And sadly it's hardly ever on. Instead they have that one from about 2010, and that's not even interesting.

    You're right on all points of the cast, Bryan Adams, etc. It was a blockbuster but a love story, or comedy, but had some really dark situations too, and that iconic bad*** flaming arrow shot...

    Agree. Favorite movie of all time.

    If they ever try to reboot it, the only option for the role is Ryan Gosling.
