Anne Hathaway's Worst Films

Anne Hathaway becoming JaneAnne Hathaway has made herself a highly regarded career, like many actresses Anne has had good movies and not-so-good movies. Here are 2 of two of her worst that we thought were mockery...

Becoming Jane
"Becoming Jane" is supposed to be about the love life of Jane Austen, author of "Pride and Prejudice." Too bad "Becoming Jane" and the film version of "Pride and Prejudice" are basically the same movie. Because of this, "Becoming Jane" seems to be redundant and unnecessary. To top it off, Keira Knightley's performance as the fictional Elizabeth Bennett is far more dazzling than Hathaway's portrayal of Jane Austen.

Hathaway plays the strong female type well, but Jane Austen's personality is a little too witty and biting for Hathaway. Knightley has a little more fire in her, and she brings that to the character of Elizabeth. After all, she has worked with pirates.

When watching "Becoming Jane," viewers may feel more fascinated by the landscape and settings than by the movie or acting. The homes and properties of the wealthy characters are lavish and provide an eye candy effect that is usually more interesting than the characters.

We have nothing against Anne Hathaway, but "Becoming Jane" is an overall flop. It is trumped by "Pride and Prejudice," mostly because of Keira Knightley's more sprightly performance of the Elizabeth/Jane role, but also because of its lack of passion.

Anne Hathaway Ella EnchantedElla Enchanted
"Ella Enchanted" is a story about a young girl, Ella, who had a spell cast on her as a baby. The spell is an obedience spell; therefore, Ella must obey all orders given to her.

The set-up of this movie is incredibly similar to Cinderella. Her name is Ella, and she has an evil stepmother and two snobby step-sisters who torment her. A prince is in search of a wife to be his princess, and there is a ball in which all the women desperately want to go to. All of this has been done before with Cinderella remakes in general.

Overall, "Ella Enchanted" is boring and lacks freshness. It doesn't produce much laughs and even Hathaway's performance is bland. There seems to be no connection between her and the character, as if she just wasn't that into it. "Ella Enchanted" is a failed attempt to put a new twist on an old story.
