Brad Pitt in Inglourious BasterdsIn 'Inglourious Basterds,' Brad Pitt plays up his Nazi hunter's Southern accent for laughs. He's gotten unintentional laughs for an accent before, though, when he played an Austrian explorer in 'Seven Years in Tibet.' (Kudos on the vocal work since then, Brad.)

Thinking back on Pitt's varied brogues over the years, we were inspired to compile our 15 favorite bad movie accents -- linguistic atrocities committed by some of the most esteemed actors of our time. (Oh, Sir Sean!) Along the way, we learned some interesting lessons: 1) consistency is key; 2) everyone thinks they can do a British accent, but they pretty much think wrong; and 3) if you're an actor who wants to keep your self-respect intact, don't ever, ever play Irish.
