Sofia Coppola as Mary Corleone

When moviemakers try to illustrate why it's never a good idea for a director to cast family members in key roles, all they have to do is say "Sofia Coppola and 'The Godfather, Part III.'" Francis Ford Coppola's little girl — who had a bit part as the baby being christened in the first part of the trilogy — subbed in as Michael Corleone's beloved child when Winona Ryder bowed out at the last minute. Coppola earned a Golden Razzie for Worst New Star by mumbling through her lines and hamming it up in a laughable death scene that caused audiences to break out in laughter in what was supposed to be the heart-wrenching climax to the series.
