Kim Basinger
Kim Basinger is a blown-up doll come to life: leggy legs, stick-on breasts, pumped-up lips – like a custom-built woman who’s been ordered a la carte.
(Mark Steyn)
Actress, Too Hot to Handle (1991)
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger are about as sexy a screen partnership as Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo.
(Chris Tookey, Sunday Telegraph)
Actress, Bless the Child (2000)
Basinger appears to be gaily waltzing through a soap opera while the other cast members are screeching their way through a horror film.
(Paul Gessell, Ottawa Citizen)
Basinger continues to prove her Oscar win for L.A. Confidential was a fluke.
(Rob Blackwelder, Spliced Online)
Basinger is almost totally planklike, registering little more than mild surprise as she is threatened by rubber rats, or has her life saved from over-elaborate execution by odd angels turning up in the nick of time.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Actress, Cellular (2004)
Popcorn flicks like this are not about great acting, which is just as well. Basinger unwisely chooses to act virtually the whole thing at the same hysterical pitch.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Basinger’s unmodulated hysteria makes her a favourite for this year’s award for worst performance by a leading actress.
(Mike McCahill, Sunday Telegraph)
