7 Movies Where Animals Did a Better Acting Job Than Humans

W.C. Fields once said, “Never work with animals or children.” And that is great advice many actors seem to forget. Why though you might ask? Because no matter how good you are, animal and/or a child will make viewers’ hearts melt and you might stay in the shadow.  

Nexter.org prepared you a list of movies where animals did a better job than actors.

Quigley

Out of all the Quigley’s cast members, the only one who can be proud of himself is the fluffy Pomeranian star. The story of the movie is very simple – a rich bad guy dies and gets sent back to Earth in the form of a lovely family pet. But it gives a great opportunity to compare human and dog performances. Now you see an adorable dog asking for food, and the next second – it’s Gary Busey on all fours, wearing a dog collar, looking very strange.

And out if these two you know that the Pomeranian delivers the only believable performance.

 

50 First Dates

At first, it seems that Sivuqaq the Walrus was just a simple fish in a movie but when you hear his backstory, you understand that he has the soul of an artist. Hunters in Alaska killed his parents when he was little, then he was rescued and received a second life as a performer. You can see that pain behind his eyes as he talks to Adam Sandler. Sivuqaq nailed his role with a grace that made him the real movie star.

 

Night of the Lepus

Night of the Lepus made a lot of people afraid of… bunnies! These little killers weren’t messing around. They were DEAD serious. Unfortunately, the cast of victims was less committed to the project. They didn’t have that much to do and they still managed to fail.

 

Larger Than Life

Roger Ebert wasn’t the biggest fan of Bill Murray’s performance in the 1996 comedy Larger Than Life. “The energy isn’t there,” he said. “Murray often chooses to play a laid-back, detached character, but this time he’s so detached he’s almost absent.”

Luckily the lovable elephant actor Tai did a great job. Yes, there were a couple of big controversies about Tai’s life in Hollywood, but if there is something we are sure of is the fact that he is one of the few Murray costars who was able to steal the stoplight from him.

 

The Magic Puppy

Eric Roberts has proven that he is not scared to challenge himself. Maybe that’s the reason why he decided to become the voice of a bulldog puppy with some important lessons to learn in The Magic Puppy movie.

Unfortunately, the puppy star didn’t receive an Academy Award, but he’s always been in it for the art. And food. Mostly food.

 

Day Of the Animals

While the bear who plays a bear in this movie shows a huge commitment, Leslie Nielsen, who plays an angry rapist, who wrestles the animal just looks awkward and unsure.

 

Bud ads

Back in the ’80s, nothing sold beer better than a commercial with a girl and a dog. As weird as it sounds. But one of the most iconic characters of the ’80s was a dog named Honey Tree Evil Eye. This amazing animal nailed every single commercial she starred in, without even saying a word.
