Stanton-Walsh Rule

Roger Ebert created this rule stating; “No movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad.”

In his 1989 review of Dream a Little Dream he noted it as being a clear violation of the Stanton-Walsh Rule.  I believe he said the same of Wild Wild West, at which point I’m fairly certain it has ceased to be a rule.
