It’s always interesting when men decide to experiment with facial hair. Mustaches can either be a great addition, or look totally ridiculous. Luckily this year a number of well-known faces decided to try on some upper lip hair, and while some succeeded others should never grow facial hair again. Take a look at some of 2008’s most memorable mustaches.

Jude Law in Jude Law Leaving His Hotel In LiverpoolIn honor of his new role of Dr. John Watson in the new Sherlock Holmes film, Jude Law grew a 'stache of his very own.


Brad Pitt in Premiere Of Paramount&squot;s "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button" - ArrivaBrad Pitt is normally a beautiful man, but this mustache just kills it. It not only makes him look old, but he looks a little creepy. Shave the lip hair Brad, it's just not for you.


George Clooney in George Clooney And Matt Damon Out At The Nobu Berkeley Restaurant 2Brad Pitt claims George Clooney copied his mustache, which could be true, but Clooney totally wears it better.


Emile Hirsch in World Premiere Of Focus Features&squot; "Milk" - ArrivalsIt appears that Emile Hirsch is slightly too young to fill in a grown up mustache. It's OK, better luck next year.


David Spade in The 8th Annual Teen Choice Awards - ArrivalsDavid Spade + Mustache = Kinda Creepy. Facial hair on him just brings me back to Joe Dirt.


Spencer Pratt in Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt Sit On Santa's Lap 2
I'm guessing the fuzz on Spencer Pratt's upper lip is supposed to be a mustache, but it's just not happenning. Him and Emile Hirsch share the same problem: Young Age.


James Franco in Gagosian Gallery Opening Reception For Julian SchnabelWhy James Franco, why?

Eric McCormack in 15th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar PartyErick McCormack's mustache just makes him look greasy. Will from Will and Grace would never approve.
