While the 1992 movie Noises Off was critically panned, it's not for the lack of effort from the name-brand cast. With an ensemble like this, it's more fun to see the stars inter/overact than it is to watch the finished film: Oscar winner Michael Caine; Oscar nominee Denholme Elliott; Emmy winners Carol Burnett and John Ritter; Screen Actors Guild Award winner Nicolette Sheridan; Julie Hagerty (Airplane!), Marilu Henner (Taxi), Mark Linn-Baker (Perfect Strangers), and Superman himself, Christopher Reeve. Here Reeve provides his best Clark Kent, constantly bleeding from the nose at the mere suggestion of violence. Fantastic!
