We’ve all been there – excited to watch a new movie, only to struggle to get through it. Whether it’s due to a lackluster plot, poor acting, or cringe-worthy dialogue, some movies are simply unbearable to watch. One user on a popular forum asked “What’s a movie that no human should have to suffer through?” Thousands chimed in…from the downright boring to the painfully bad, these films are sure to make you question why you ever hit play in the first place.
“Cats” is a 2019 musical fantasy film based on the stage musical of the same name by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The movie follows a group of cats called the Jellicles, who come together for their annual Jellicle Ball, where they must make the “Jellicle Choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a new life.
One said, “When you consider the facts that Cats came out at the end of 2019 and the world shutting down in early 2020, there is a number of people whose last movie ever seen in the theater before they died was Cats.” Another added, “You will never bond with a group of strangers more than as the credits roll and you look at each other like “[what] did we just watch?!” I *** loved it.
Mean Girls 2
“Mean Girls 2” is a 2011 teen comedy film and a sequel to the 2004 film “Mean Girls.” The movie follows a new student named Jo, who is trying to fit in at North Shore High School. She becomes friends with Abby, who is part of a clique called “The Plastics.” Jo and Abby team up to take down the school’s queen bee, Mandi, and her clique. Along the way, they navigate the ups and downs of high school life, including romance, friendship, and betrayal.
Someone replied, “Mean Girls 2 isn’t the worst movie I have ever seen, but it might be the biggest drop in quality for a sequel ever. Just so tough to sit through that trash when the first one was so good.”
“Gotti” is a 2018 biographical crime drama film that tells the story of the rise and fall of John Gotti, the infamous head of the Gambino crime family in New York City. One expressed, “[I] found it on Netflix and thought it was a cool made-by-Netflix telling of his story. It’s not. It “stars” John Travolta in the title role and is (I think) a made for TV movie that happens to be on Netflix. It is excruciatingly bad. You’re waiting for it to get better. And waiting. And waiting. It will not get better. It will anger you and destroy your faith in movies and the world in general. Avoid. I watched it 3 years ago accidentally and I am still angry. Repeat: avoid.”
Live Action Avatar: The Last Air Bender
“The live-action adaptation of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” is a retelling of the animated TV series, following the journey of Aang, the last Airbender, as he tries to master the elements and defeat the Fire Nation to restore balance to the world. Someone confessed, “We Airbender fans don’t talk about this abomination,” so we’ll leave it at that.
“Gigli” is a 2003 romantic comedy film about a low-level mobster named Larry Gigli, played by Ben Affleck, who is tasked with kidnapping the mentally challenged younger brother of a federal prosecutor to prevent him from testifying against the mob. Along the way, he falls in love with a lesbian hitwoman, played by Jennifer Lopez, who is also working on the job. Someone commented, “I saw it alone in the theaters and again with my husband to make sure he witnessed the abomination. Neither of them should have ever been allowed to act again.”

Even the kids who were so amped to see it were bored.”
“The Human Centipede” is a 2009 horror film that follows a mad scientist who kidnaps three tourists and surgically connects them mouth-to-anus to create a “human centipede.” The movie depicts the graphic and disturbing consequences of the experiment as the victims struggle to survive and escape.
Someone said, “I was bored one day and watched all three. Steer clear.“ Another added, “I’m shocked I had to scroll so far to find this. It is what I came here to say. I was curious enough to fast forward through the first one to the important parts, and I will NOT be watching any of the sequels. I can’t ever unsee it and it still haunts me, years later.”
Holmes & Watson
“Holmes & Watson” is a 2018 comedy film that parodies the famous detective duo, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The movie follows the bumbling and incompetent Holmes and Watson, played by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, as they try to solve a mystery involving the Queen of England. One commented, “A movie so terrible, the studio said it should never see the light of day. TV warned it would never be aired, and yet for some reason, Netflix elected to ignore both and put it out there anyway.”
“Closer” is a 2004 romantic drama film that follows the relationships between four people: Dan, played by Jude Law, Alice, played by Natalie Portman, Anna, played by Julia Roberts, and Larry, played by Clive Owen. The movie explores the themes of love, infidelity, and betrayal as the characters’ lives become intertwined. One said, “That movie put me off Clive Owen for life. Just terrible.”
A Serbian Film
“A Serbian Film” is a 2010 Serbian horror film that depicts the life of a retired porn star named Miloš, who is lured back into the industry with the promise of a large sum of money. As he becomes involved in increasingly disturbing and violent scenes, he realizes that he has become a pawn in a larger, more sinister game. One user commented, “I read a great review of this one time. It said that you won’t hate this movie, but you’ll hate yourself for watching it. That’s pretty much true. My friend and I saw it together. We sat there in silence as we just stared at the no signal message on the TV. We had no words.”
“Zoolander 2″ is a 2016 comedy film and a sequel to the 2001 film “Zoolander.” The movie follows male models Derek Zoolander, played by Ben Stiller, and Hansel McDonald, played by Owen Wilson, as they come out of retirement to investigate a series of murders of celebrities who have died with Zoolander’s signature “Blue Steel” look on their face. Along the way, they encounter new characters, including an Interpol agent played by Penelope Cruz and an eccentric fashion designer played by Will Ferrell.
Some answered, “I loved Zoolander 1. I could quote it by heart. It was a perfect comedy that didn’t get the initial fanfare it deserved because of 9/11. It took 15 years for them to make Zoolander 2. Ben Stiller wrote it, everyone was in it. Absolutely mind-blowing cast and cameos — EVERYONE. It was SO bad. Every joke failed. It was nominated for 12 Golden Raspberries including Worst Picture and had 22% on rotten tomatoes, I think ONLY because those 22% didn’t want to piss off the sheer size of that cast.”
