6. 'Alex Cross'
Imagine if someone decided to do a movie where they bought a pulpy, graphic, lurid crime novel and they adapted it like they were aiming for people who thought "CSI: Miami" was too intellectual, and they cast Dame Edna to star in it, but not in the Dame Edna outfit. Just dressed like a cop. That's "Alex Cross," and it is every bit as weird as that sounds. Midway through the film, I started daydreaming about other bizarre genre casting exercises that would be this weird, like Boy George starring as James Bond or Michael Jackson playing Rambo or Sean Penn playing Robert Smith, but hunting Nazis. Things that would NEVER happen, and for good reason.
