Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison
Kilmer’s performance in 1991’s “The Doors” was panned as a lazy caricature of frontman Jim Morrison as a cartoonish alcohol and drug addict. Much of the blame for that goes to director Oliver Stone, whose overzealous pursuit of the ‘60s psychedelic vibe made Kilmer’s role seem, as TV Guide put it, “boring, indulgent and over-stuffed.” —Jeff Royer
