Matt Dillon
Actor, Rumble Fish (1983)
Matt Dillon gives his patented suffering-beauty, cocky-but-vulnerable performance; the bright promise he once exhibited in Over The Edge and Tex has receded into the sludge of his unappealing voice, sloppy technique, and humorless temperament.
(David Denby, New York)
Actor, Wild Things (1998)
For female viewers, there is Matt Dillon, whose charms are as lost on me as his talent.
(John Simon, National Review)
Actor, You, Me and Dupree (2006)
I doubt I'll win the Pulitzer for revealing that Matt Dillon can't act. Still, I have to write it because it's just not fair to anyone forced to watch. He's a catastrophic choice for the Carl role. He acts with all the subtlety of an incontinent dog. He has so little chemistry with Kate Hudson that I thought it was possible he had been green-screened in next to her. There were certain points in the movie it seemed like he was invisible. That is not what they call in the film business "presence."
