I think the Barrymore family is a prime example of the law of diminishing returns.

Consider John Barrymore, who many considered one of the finest actors of the generation. His son, John Drew Barrymore, also an actor, paled by comparison. Then, we have Drew Barrymore. Yikes. A precipitous drop if you ask me. Textbook diminishing returns. In fact, I don't know how you can go lower, unless Drew's child is a potato:

Even then, however, that potato might challenge her onscreen charisma.
