In the Olympics, they give out medals for sailing the high seas, but sailing through a career in the entertainment industry isn't anything to be proud of, no matter how financially fruitful it may be. This year, plenty of pop culture staples have been guilty of coasting.Adam Sandler
's Jack & Jill
was a new low for a guy that's been coasting since Happy Gilmore
. Likewise, Johnny Depp
built his reputation on being incredibly selective with the projects he chose to work on, but now his credibility radar appears to be broken (see: The Tourist, Rum Diary
, and the Pirates
sequels). The Twilight
franchise decided to break the final installment into two movies, which meant weaker films and double the box office take. And American Idol
suffered its lowest ratings ever thanks to dull judges and the same old tired format.
So which pop culture institution is a the biggest culprit of coasting?
