Dialects in film

I already ragged DeNiro for his bad southern accent in the Cape Fear remake. I just saw a bit of Al Pacino in "People I Know"; again, a bad southern accent from a New Yorker.
On the other hand, Robin Wright Penn nailed a southern accent in "Toys".

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are New Yorkers too.
