Frederick Weller as Brian Wilson
This Emmy-nominated made-for-TV film “The Beach Boys: An American Family” is packed full of bloopers and blunders (you can see Mike Love’s mustache falling off during a bedroom scene with his wife), but none as egregious as Weller’s (above, middle) misplaying of mastermind Brian Wilson. Botched fat-man makeup aside, Wilson comes across as a goofy idiot savant (who actually gets a lesson on songwriting from Love – talk about revisionist history) with an almost comical dependency on junk food and drugs. —Jeff Royer
