At the very end of the 2000s, Glee graced our television screens and took everyone by storm. Filled with gripping drama, an emotional turmoil and some amazing renditions of pop songs which often improved on the original version, Glee was truly captivating and innovative.
It was certainty an odd show, what with its unique brand of humour and quirky ensemble of characters, but the bizarre tone of Glee is what made it such a stand out show to begin with.
Yes, the musical series went downhill in the later years as the songs became less relevant to the plot and all the best characters were absent. However, the impact and influence of the earlier seasons cannot be understated.
Glee succeeded because the cast was mainly comprised of experienced performers who were known for their theatrical singing abilities and dancing/movement skills. This does mean, however, the majority of the Glee cast hadn't tried their hand at much film work, because they were more tailored to the stage.
And as a result, when they finally landed themselves a role on the silver screen, it was usually for a lower rate movie that would most likely NOT advance their acting careers.
10. What To Expect When You're Expecting (2012) - Matthew Morrison
Let's start with the best of a VERY bad bunch. What To Expect When You're Expecting boasts a star studded cast - featuring Cameron Diaz, Anna Kendrick, Chris Rock, Jennifer Lopez, Dennis Quaid and of course Glee star Matthew Morrison, you're almost certain to recognise at least one of the actors.
As you'd expect from the title, this romantic comedy looks at the trials and tribulations you usually experience during the months preparing for bringing a baby into your life. Involving five different couples, each with different lifestyles, they're all coming to terms with parenthood in their own ways.
With credit, What To Expect When You're Expecting is a very light hearted, easy-going film and it's not really trying to be anything else. The main problem is that it's overwhelmed by too many characters. If the writers had just pinpointed one of the couple's stories, they could have easily fleshed out their experience and struggles in order to depict a much more poignant, meaningful movie about expecting a baby.
