In X3, I think it was Ian McKellen who got the best lines and scenes and because he's a great actor he made the most of it.
What's really bizzare about all this is since when did Halle Berry become a star? She was recognized for her acting and won an accademy award for her performance in Monster's Ball. That movie had mixed reviews and if not for it's tiny budget it wouldn't have made any money. Also, Halle was never a boxoffice draw and hasn't starred in anything noteworthy before or after the X-Men films.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. No one bothered to give Tom Rothman the memo.
