Oh I'd definitely agree with that. Johnny Depp is my favourite example. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was fucking awful but 99.9% of his films are excellent so I watch them. I actually thought POTC would be crap when I first heard about it, but my mind changed as more information came to light:
Stage one: Keira in a pirate movie. Hmm, interesting.
Stage two: Keira in a DISNEY pirate movie. Why oh why?
Stage three: Orlando Bloom is co-starring. Are you fucking mad woman?!
Stage four: So's Johnny Depp. Hmm, can't be that bad then, can it?
Stage five: Geoffrey Rush too. That's definitely another plus point.
Stage six: Gore Verbinski is directing it. I'm sold.
