People In This Online Group Are Sharing The Movies They Couldn’t Finish Because They Were So Bad And Here Are 30 Of Them
Movies make you travel to a different world and experience hundreds and thousands of lives, let you into the minds of people who think not the same as you, and help to detach from your own problems. It is a popular way to spend time but you want it to be quality time as there are more productive ways to spend a couple of hours of your day.
Some movies are so bad that you don’t need to finish them to know they are not worth your time. To make other people aware of such movies, Ramaal2000 asked Reddit users, “What movie did you start watching then said ‘F**k this, I'm not finishing this?’”
Are there any other movies that made you stand up in the cinema and just leave, or turn off your computer, TV, or other devices because they were so unwatchable? Let us know in the comments and upvote the submissions you agree with the most.

The Mummy (2017)
The Mummy - the Tom Cruise train wreck.
The old school one with Brendan Frasier is awesome.
50 Shades Of Gray (2015)
50 shades of Gray. I was out as soon as she walked into Christian s office and tripped over NOTHING. Cause, you know, she s just so quirky and clumsy.
I lasted 30 minutes and then I immediately left the theater. Human faces on roaches creeped me the hell out, as did whatever else I saw in that time frame.
Marriage Story (2019)
Why would i want to watch parents fight for two hours. Might as well just eat with my family for dinner
Avatar The Last Airbender (2005)
Avatar The Last Airbender
What you didn’t enjoy watching Ong and his friends Katara and Soh-kah acting super serious and depressed?
Noah with Russel Crowe. Gave it about 10 minutes then me and the missus looked at each other.
"Maybe it'll get better"
"That *maybe* is doing a lot of work"
We gave up when the Twisted Rock Creatures just casually arrive and nobody bats an eyelid, or even explains them.
It might get better, but I'm 40ish, so only have a few decades left, and dont want to risk wasting the hours required to watch this again.
A Wrinkle In Time (2018)
A Wrinkle in Time.
I really was looking forward to AWIT. I had a rough time as a fifth grader in the 1980s and it was THE book that saved my soul as a kid - I saw myself as Meg- I read and reread it until I was an adult.
So I was truly excited to see this movie with my bf and his kids. After I left the theater I was mad for weeks every time I thought of it.
I didn't mind how it was cast. but the writers skipped over chapters of the book, practically made Oprah the star of the thing and totally made everything up from whole cloth after Meg and Cal escaped Kamazotz. It wasn't even the cliff notes version - it was like the kindergartner version after the saw the trailer once and tried to make the ending deep when they didn't earn it.
The Passion Of The Christ (2004)
The Passion of the Christ, and I remember the exact moment.
In one of the first scenes where Jesus is being tortured by the Romans, Roman One reveals his Cat o’ Nine Tails with barbed hooks. He slams it against a wooden table, and pulls it back to a shower of splinters. He then proceeds to send chunks of Jesus’ back everywhere.
I thought to myself: just kill him already.
And then I found myself wondering: was THAT the point of all this gore-porn? To drive home that the only end to pain and suffering was through THE DEATH OF CHRIST?
Just as I was about to give Mel Gibson grudging respect for maybe almost making a point, Roman One flips Jesus over and starts all over again on Jesus’ front. “Nope,” I thought to myself, “Mel was enjoying himself too much when he made this.” My girlfriend at the time noped out hard, and I definitely wasn’t going to refuse.
The worst thing was leaving and seeing the CHILDREN that these church people brought to see this movie that was rated R solely for violence, their eyes either buried in their seats or dilated to the size of dinner plates, and (I assume) blaming themselves for what they were seeing on screen.
F**k that movie. Happy Easter?
The Emoji Movie (2017)
The Emoji movie. It was almost a parody of every CGI kids movie.
Holmes And Watson (2018)
The Will Ferrell and John C Reilly movie “Holmes and Watson”
In the screening I went to (thanks, dad), I watched a whole group of fourteen year old boys hightail it out of there in the first twenty minutes.
When the least discerning movie audience of all time up and leave so soon, you know it'll be amazingly bad.
Mean Girls 2 (2011)
Mean girls 2
It bothered me because the girls weren't even bullies in that one like the first. They just did straight up crimes they could have gotten arrested for.
Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief (2010)
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Huge fan of the books but couldn’t make it half an hour into the movie. Literally walked out of the theatre.
Could have been the next Harry Potter and I felt terrible for Riordan. They should have used kids like they did in the Harry Potter movies because they start out 11-12 years old in the books. I don’t even think they read the books til the second one because they gave Alexandra Daddario a blonde wig in the second movie because her character is in fact supposed to be blonde. And they meet a bad guy in the second movie that they shouldn’t even think about until like the 3rd or 4th book.
So yeah, bad movies.
Zoolander 2 (2016)
Such a letdown that one. They should’ve never made a second one. The first one was so good!
Gigli. I thought it might be comically bad, but no, it’s just the moldy cardboard of movies. Made it through about 35 mins before I realized that I was actively thinking about other things and tuning it out. So I turned it off.
Eragon the movie, 'Nuff said
It was actually that film that introduced me to the books! I watched it, thought it was ok, found out there were books and bought them. About a year later I decided to rewatch it because I had fond memories. Wow it was bad. I only got about half way in before I quit
X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)
X-Men, dark pheonix. I couldnt get past the ten minute mark.
Yeah. That was unfortunate. I mean, how do you take all of that talent, all of that back story, all of that money, and come up with... That?
I was hoping for a feel-good goofy movie and saw “Downsizing” while browsing Hulu. After reading the description, I assumed it’d be something like “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and went for it.
It was nothing like “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” :(
The newest hellboy movie, I didn't last five minutes
Dear god...that opening...
The way the movie does that awkward quick jump of King Author getting off his horse.
"....Yes, that King Arthur"
Um...did the narrator think I was thinking of another King Arthur...jesus this movie is going to be so bad...
I actually finished watching the movie. I don't know why I did that, but I did.
Robin Hood (2018)
The Robin Hood movie. The bad guys have machine gun crossbows. It's f*****g bizarre.
Edit: For anyone that hasn't seen it and is curious, the first scene has Robin Hood in the crusades where the crusaders wear modern gear and flak jackets and they hut hut hut around a bombed out city clearing houses with longbows half drawn at the shoulder like they're spec ops dudes but they get pinned down by an automatic ballista that's basically a machine gun nest but it's OK because they fire a flare arrow over it which calls in an air strike from some nearby trebuchets. I didn't hate this as much as some of the people replying but the whole thing was so goofy and stupid that I couldn't be bothered finishing it.
Alice Through The Looking Glass (2016)
Into the Looking Glass.
I’m normally a huge fan of Tim Burton’s work but i have legitimately sat down w snacks, full intent on watching it, three times now and i just can’t get into it.
Edit: i know he didn’t direct this one but we all know whenever he’s involved his style gets very heavily incorporated
The Mummy 3 (2008)
The Mummy 3. I loved the Mummy series and Brendan Fraser is awesome but my god that was a hot pile of s**t and the only movie I ever walked out of in a theatre.
Death Note (2017)
A deleted user said:
Death note netflix adaptation
William Dafoe is the only thing decent about it. The final plan at the end was terrible to begin with.
Underworld: Blood Wars (2016)
The most recent Underworld movie, it was a lot more soap opera and general incoherence than anything, beyond saving
Hearts And Armour (1983)
Hearts AND Armour. (CORRECTED!)
I have absolutely no excuse other than I paid $1 in the Blockbuster bin for it and needed to win the "Worst movie" contest with a bunch of friends on Fantasy Movie Friday.
I still win with it.
I still haven't watched all of it.
Note to anyone who attempts to watch it - whenever the blonde heaves her bosoms, tosses her hair, and yells "Let me fight him, I'll fight him" take a drink and you'll be dead before the end of the film, so you'll be out of your misery anyway.
FYI: You don't know bad cinema until the bad guys have the evil henchmen in a sword and sorcery flick is wear a spangly rooster costume fight chicken style alongside the guy in a sequined top hat surrounded by knives and bowtie on top of an ape suit.
YUP, folks - it's THAT bad.
And I own it on VHS.
Scary Movie 5 (2013)
Years back, I used to love the no-effort parody movies like Epic Movie, Scary Movie, Superhero Movie, Meet the Spartans etc.
Until I watched Scary Movie 5.
When 5 came out, I couldn't see it immediately at the time so I forgot about it and rented it years later. When watching it I realised none of the jokes were funny because they all relied on referencing and parodying the horror movies of that time which were no longer relevant. It was a slog and I turned it off and returned it half way through.
Going Overboard (1989)
Going overboard. Adam Sandler's first movie. It's amazing how it didn't end his career before it started
I actually finished it the one time I started it. Worst movie I have ever watched. I remember a chase scene around the boat where Sandler’s character has different shirts on during the same chase. You couldn’t make a worse movie if you tried.
I love ‘B Movies’ that are amusingly bad. “Ghost Shark” is a particular favourite, but Zombiesaurus (bought for £2 from my local Asda) was so bad I couldnt finish it.
The Invisible Man (2020)
Should have turned off Invisible Man, but my BF was enjoying it.
I literally spent 75% of that movie thinking "NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. Is it over yet? Surely this is the end. Oh god, it's not. F**k." On repeat.
It wasnt even the fact that he was invisible, just everyone not believing the woman over and over....nooope.
It's been 14 years since I broke up with my controlling gas lighting ex. Clearly not long enough to watch this movie. And my ex wasnt ever physically violent.
-10/10. Hated it.
It's a French slasher film about this woman who wants to steal a pregnant widow's fetus. I've watched so many gorefest movies to boot and for some reason this one just totally took it to the next level for me and I couldn't handle it.
I actually got quite close to the end and I just couldn't finish it.
Bird Box (2018)
Bird box. What a horrible movie. I made it pretty far, but realised like 45 minutes in that I had no way to empathize with the main character, I hated her, the way she treated the kids, and I hated the way every other character behaved. I turned it off.
