Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx in Miami ViceColin Farrell has always been refreshingly honest about his troubled personal life, but it's his honesty about his professional endeavors that really interests us following a fresh quote about Michael Mann's 'Miami Vice' reboot in Total Film recently.

"'Miami Vice'? I didn't like it so much ... "said Farrell. "I understood that we were trying to paint a relationship with Tubbs and Crockett that was so grounded and familiar that there was no need for them to incessantly talk to each other - or look at each other - over two and a half hours."

You have to admire his honesty. Though Miami Vice wasn't really that awful, we wonder what he thought about 'S.W.A.T.', 'Daredevil' or 'Alexander.'

This follows in the footsteps of Matthew Goode's recent admission that new romantic comedy "Leap Year" was, in fact, "turgid" and that "there are a lot of people who will say it is the worst film of 2010."

If only more people in the industry could be so candid, we'd at the very least get some interesting poster quotes like "Don't bother" -- Milla Jovovich for 'Resident Evil' or, "I'm sorry" -- Shia LaBeouf for Transformers 2.

It's unusual for anyone to so publicly admit to hating their work, especially, like Goode, when their film has only just been released; at least Farrell waited four years.

Recently. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been seen to be tiring of the Twilight franchise and even Mickey Mouse's favorite tween idol, Zac Efron, criticized his resume when being interviewed for 'Me and Orson Wells.'"It's the first time I've ever watched a movie (that I'm in) and in the end I'm like, 'OK! I didn't check my watch once!"

What do you think? Is it disrespectful to the people who pay their wages or do you think it's great when actors tell us what they really think?
