      Well, Martin in "Human Centipede 2" was pretty bad in his job. Kidnapping and killing his customers (or DID he imagine it all?). And he doesn't show much more talent as a crazy doctor, just staples the victims together. Then Richard Dreyfuss in "What About Bob" isn't really successful either...can't get along with his own family and going nuts himself. And then there's all the Killers (Jason, M. Myers etc.)...even they get to kill lots of people they mostly die at the end (just to come back in the next movie).

      Inspector Clouseau? Frank Drebin was just another version of his character.

      Is being a superhero a job? Was it Hancock's Job? Is burgling a job? Is being an almighty deity a job? doesn't he give powers to Jim Carrey because he gets tired of his complaining rather then growing tired of watching over his creation? Another another s*** list

      RE Kid Blue - I'd say Paul Dano's Seth was FAR worse at his job.

      Evelyn Carnahan is not an archeologist... She is a Librarian. She says so herself in the movie.

      I'd go as far as say jack black, who tricked himself into a teachers job, at one point kidnaps the children, wouldnt have any kind of CRB thing....he's looking at a lot of jail time...

      The whole crew of Prometheus should be at No. 1. I've never come across a more stupid bunch of professionals in a film. Other stuff; how about Brendan Gleeson in The Guard?

      Those 2 clowns in Prometheus should win hands down. I'm surprised Ridley Scott would insult his viewers like that. Number ONE: One of them is a Geologist (I forget his name so I'll call him Tweedledum) and invented some twirley tunnel-mapping balls to MAP OUT THE AREA. And guess what? They get lost in the same tunnels when no-one was there to hold their little handsies.

      Indiana Jones sucks at being an archaeologist? That may be the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Totally false.

      If you're gonna bring up Boba Fett, at least get the movie right! It was Return Of The Jedi!

      If you are a cop who mistakes a ballet class for a strip club, you will pretty much suck at life, let alone a job.

      Just make these lists a Top 20... then maybe you won't have to stretch so hard to find valid entries. Some of these lists are more limber than a 12 year old gymnast.

      I hate to say this, but the Daniel Craig Bond actually sucks at his job too (apart from being the best Bond ever!). At the three assignments he's had so far, he failed in two. In Casino Royale, his job was to beat Le Chiffre at the poker game, so he would have to turn himself over to MI6 with all his secrets about terrorists. In the end Le Chiffre dies, so the mission failed. In Skyfall (spoiler alert to those who haven't seen it yet), Bonds job is to recover the disk and later on to safe M. He doesn't recover the disk and M dies. Not a very good job then.
