Personally, I think they didn't give Godfather III enough credit for craptacularity.
Francis Ford Coppola mortgaged the Corleone legacy in this ridiculous postscript about La Cosa Nostra getting into bed with the Vatican, death by poison cannoli, and hotheaded nephew Andy Garcia rolling gnocchi with Sofia Coppola as they interlace fingers (it's like a mobster version of the Ghost pottery-wheel scene). Critics dogpiled on 19-year-old Sofia. And she is terrible. But she's the least offensive thing in this act of cinematic grave-defiling.
No, Sofia was by no means the worst offender: This is the movie in which Al Pacino jumped the shark; never in the course of cinematic history has man been exposed to such egregious overacting.
