The only contender I can think of is Soldier Blue.

As far as I am concerned, by far the most inaccurate film is Braveheart.

I would however, dispute the claim that Wallace "didn't get stuff done anywhere near as good as Robert the Bruce.". Their circumstances were entirely different. Wallace and de Moray were leaders of a peoples insurrection. Bruce built on their successes and failures.

You would have to get into something along the lines of Pee Wee Herman cast as Alexander to get any worse.

300 was the right wing version of the kingdom of heaven albeit in a different era with different personalities. I think Zagros mentioned that before about the dramatist who wrote the script as being a crazy rascist so I heard his NPR interview and he was even worse than I thought, he said that his film portrays the "struggle" with the "same" kind of people who blow up NY in 9/11.

300 was a good action movie, nothing more, nothing less. Why do some people always try to read too much in movies?

What about the Iwo Jima films? They didn't have a speech, did they?

In Letters From Iwo Jima, Kuribayashi gives quite a lengthy speech over the loudspeaker before the attack. Ending in a banzai fest. Not sure if there were any pep talk speeches in Flags of our Fathers though.

That film Was pretty corny. Move over three hundred, Alexander takes the cake for being the worst and most inaccurate film in the history of mankind.

I've not seen the Iwo Jima films, that's why I asked. 

However, perhaps those speeches were of_history? Or not?

That statement reminded me of a quote from a hollywood movie from 62', of all the ironic things to quote from:
 
"When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." From the movie, "The man who shot Liberty Valance".
 
Sometimes, it seems that not even the power of truth can stand up to the legends nowaday's. Hard%20Working

I've really enjoyed John Wayne movies, but this one... ugh! I do have to say that it does deserve to be at the top of the list.

It has nothing on Alexander. One day I will get a job at mad magizine and then I can make fun of all stupid movies.
