I thought of another egregious Sean Connery accent. His portrayal of "Ramirez" the Spaniard in Highlander.
to be fair Ramirez was no spaniard. He was born in Egypt in 896 bc. He assumed the name Ramirez when in Spain much later.

Even worse is when characters are supposed to be talking Dutch in US films, but they're clearly speaking German. No effort at all :D
Anne Hathaway isn't speaking German in this, but she might as well be (she even says Auf Wiedersehen!).

So that's what an ancient Egyptian accent sounds like then! :woot: But how did he do his research and why hasn't he shared his time travel - oh, wait, Highlander ...
