Hey ATS, I felt like creating a fun, goofy thread just for laughs. Welcome to the worst Nicolas Cage movie scene thread.

(A while back I made a Best Christopher Walken scenes thread, and thought this might make a good companion.)

Nick Cage is kind of like the high fructose corn syrup of movies, and can be found adding his own distinctive flavor to movies everywhere. Love him (yes, believe it or not some people do!) or hate him, chances are you've seen more than your share of Nicolas Cage. If there are 6 degrees of separation to Kevin Bacon, it's probably more like 1.5 to Nick Cage.

In my opinion, he is easily the most ridiculous actor to ever grace the screen. His unintentional (?) comedy either reduces good, serious films (luckily for us there are very few of these) to absurdity, or he makes bad movies worth the watch for the laugh factor. If he happened to have a good role or two in his career, I would argue that he pulled it off despite himself. Yes, he is just that bad.

I found this pretty funny compilation of bad (but classic) Nicolas Cage scenes. Enjoy!



Do you have any favorite awful Nicolas Cage scene? If you do, please post here! I hope you're enjoying your Labor Day weekend (if you live in the US) and I hope this thread can serve as a reminder not to take life too seriously (thanks to Nick Cage for reminding us of that!)

I'd have to say the, "I lost my hand.", in that Moon, whatever it's called, movie is the funniest line by Nick.

Hey, I hadn't seen this one... found it and yep, this is the perfect example of the Nick Cage brand.

He almost always plays the same character. A confused middle-age man trying to figure something out. He has the same style and the same facial expression's. But unlike Jonathan Banks who can pull it off .

. Nicholas Cage's repetition is just pathetic .

His only great movie was Raising Arizona. After that everything went downhill from him.

I'm pretty sure Francis Ford Coppola is happy Nick doesn't use the family name.

Oh man, lol. This is perfectly awful. Never even heard of this one before. Thank you for bringing this gem to our attention!

Imagine a whole movie with just Nick Cages. Army of One indeed.

Exactly, the more distance here the more chance one has of being taken seriously. This is where you want the 6 degrees of separation.

cage never acts the same in each movie. he always tries something new. and i think he must enjoy creating crazy voices and characters, and even those low budget flicks the guy has to be making at least 100k per movie.

dude is mackin.

he gets paid to have fun.

We need Nick Cage to star in the next Sharknado movie.

Well he does get paid to have fun, that is true! I just can't agree with your analysis of his acting..


but can say this; he certainly has abundant endurance and enthusiasm!

Think whatever you like about the man's acting skills- that guy is a hustler! He's lost fortunes and worked his backside off to regain them more than anyone I can think of offhand in Hollyweird!

I find him amusing!

Cage is a wretched actor, probably isn't even acting.

I, for one, appreciate Cage's rage game.

ETA: I wonder if he is a member, like other actor/musician types...

Well clearly you are not alone! And the youtube comments I read are full of support for the guy.
I just can't take his roles seriously, at all.

I hear you. Not exactly the guy you want to send in for "Schindler's List".

Cage is a blunt instrument...a baseball bat.

Sometimes you need a baseball bat to make your point.
