The worst and most compelling performance ever
16 June 2003 | by jbelsSee all my reviews

This movie is a trifle, kind of on the side of Annie Hall. But Almost You contains probably the worst acting performance ever committed to film, that of Marty Watt, who plays Kevin. This "actor" plays an up and coming "actor" and if you want to have a laugh riot, rent this movie just for this performance. I say this with all due respect.
