No matter how closely we follow reviews or how carefully we listen to our friends, we're gonna get stuck watching a bad movie at some point. Maybe somebody dragged us to the theater or maybe we've seen all the good stuff on Netflix, but it'll happen.
And when it does, our only hope is that somebody in the movie is having more fun than we are. We only keep watching in the hope that they come back, but at least they gave us something to hope for.
Some actors are a lot more likely to fill this role than others, and they deserve special attention for saving our viewing experience.
