15 Predictions For 2014 Movies Everybody Got Wrong
14. Megan Fox Will Ruin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Prediction: The young woman Paramount and producer Michael Bay sought to cast as the Turtles' iconic sidekick April O'Neil is...Megan Fox? Though few will be complaining about what she looks like, Fox's acting skills have regularly been taken to task, and so it was widely expected that she'd sink this movie before it even got going... The Reality: In fairness to Fox, while she hardly displays extraordinarily acting talent here, she is more than reasonable as O'Neil, playing the part on the right side of bemusement and doing about as well with the relatively flaky dialogue as any actor could be asked to. Fox doesn't sink the movie at all: the creepy, crude humour and inane storyline do that plenty well by themselves.
