Awful accent to be sure
LOS ANGELES: Sean Connery's attempt at an Irish brogue has been named the worst movie accent of all time.
Connery's vocal efforts playing cop Jim Malone in the 1987 film The Untouchables topped a poll of experts on Empire online, beating Dick Van Dyke's laboured Cockney accent in Mary Poppins.
Other nominations included Brad Pitt in Seven Years In Tibet and Keanu Reeves in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
