Yes there are directories that are not worthwhile. Not everything is worthwhile in life and as with everything, the good requires patience and searching. Major directories that will benefit you are ones such as DMOZ, BCentral, Skaffee, GoGuides, Arelis, and others. You could also count Ezine articles in there too if you wanted too.
You want to stay away from directories known as link farms. What these directories do is allow you to submit your site information and "Blast Ad" them to "millions" of sites. This is a waste of time because their links pages are constantly getting changed and thus your link never receives any value. Plus they count as link farms.
PR is not a deciding factor unless you are crazy about PR. What a high PR link will do for your site (over time) is give you a trust authority link and say in the internet. It's weight will be worth more than hundreds of PR0 sites.
