Gabourey Sidibe – Tower Heist (2011)

Gabourey Sidibe had not one, not two, but three vocal coaches help her perfect her Jamaican accent to play the Jamaican-born maid Odessa. Apparently, the character was originally supposed to be American, but director Brett Ratner insisted Sidibe adopt the accent. Despite all the help she got, Sidibe just couldn’t successfully pull it off.

    Yes those are bad accents. One of my favorite ridiculous combinations of accents is in Beauty and The Beast. Emma Watson accent is English, Kevin Kline is neutral american and he can do a french accent and there is such a mixture of accents not many French. But i love the story and its a good movie.
