The Annoying Child Actor Hall of Fame Welcomes...Thomas Horn

Horn, the amazingly grating star of "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" needs to share the honor with screenwriter Eric Roth and director Stephen Daldry. Their simple, unimaginative approach to handling a difficult, quirky character creates the most unsympathetic, obnoxious protagonist in recent memory.

As I say in my review for "The Weekender," the only way we'd get behind Horn's character is if we could push him off a cliff.

Take a bow, young man.

You can read the review of this Best Picture nominee--man, it pains me to type that--here.

With this male Rhoda Penmark for a child, maybe his father committed suicide.
