Every time a crappy film is riddled with talented actors, I can't help but wonder what they were thinking. Is it a money thing? A favor for a friend? Are their tastes really that bad? And more importantly -- was there no other movie they could have taken to get the same money? Every time these films "grace" the screen, I yearn to hear what the actor really thought -- if they bought into the false buzz of their feature, or are just trying to grin and bear the badness. I wonder if they have to sit down and balance the embarrassment of the film with their need for cash, their morals, their tastes.

Sometimes we get the truth years in the future, when it's "safe" to be honest, but sometimes, wonderfully, we get it immediately. Matthew Goode recently revealed his thoughts on this year's rom-com Leap Year, as well as news that he had auditioned for the role of Bilbo Baggins in the The Hobbit (though admits that he's a little too tall for the part). Regarding Leap Year, though, the Universal romance somehow made its money back last month, and a little extra for good measure, but didn't even crack a million in its foreign box office take, and earned a truly spectacular 21% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes.
