Top 10 Worst Movie Parents

The Top TenXW

1Corrine Dollanganger - Flowers in the Attic

She abandones her children in the Attic of her parents house leaving them all to die while she gets ready to marry off to lawyer. - egnomac

2Jack Torrance - The Shining
3Buck Cluck - Chicken Little

Out of all the characters on this list, Buck is the only one I'd quantify as a legitimately bad person. The others are all insane or murderous. After his son makes a fool out of himself, Buck attempts to distance himself from his son to keep his social standing. That is HORRIBLE parenting. It gets even worse when Buck suddenly supports his son after he becomes the town hero, and then abandons him AGAIN after he attempts to warn of the invasion.

Yes, I know he eventually realizes he's never there for his son, and stands by him against the red alien in the ship, but that doesn't make any of the things he did okay. Buck was a surprisingly mean spirited character, even going so far as to call his own son an embarrassment. What a jerk.

He didn't support his son when he claimed the sky was falling and just allows the townspeople to harass and torment Chicken Little. - egnomac

She's the reason why Jay is the way he is. - egnomac

5Judge Claude Frollo - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

After killing off Quasimodo's mother and almost drowns him he gets guilt tripped into taking him in as his son locking him away in the bell tower, and spending all those years convincing him the world is a cruel and hearless place full of sinners. - egnomac

6Joe Dirt's Parents - Joe Dirt

Joe spent his whole life looking for them only to find out they didn't even bother to look for him or even cared that he was gone even admitting that they purposely abandoned him at the Grand Canyon and the only reason they want to be in his live again is because he's famouse, Joe gets so upset over it that he tries to commit suicide. - egnomac

7Lady Tremaine - Cinderella
8King and Queen of Arendelle - Frozen

Rather than helping their daughter to control her powers they instead choose to hide them which made the situation even worst. - egnomac

9Once-Ler's Parents - Dr. Seuss' The Lorax

When Once-Ler first leaves they all laugh at him hoping he fails, when he actually succeeds then they want him back in their lives they convince him to cut down the trees to increase productivity breaking his promise to the Lorax after all the trees get cut down killing off his business the up and leave calling him a disappointment. - egnomac

10The Wormwoods - Matilda

From the beginning they show absolute no interest in Matilda leaving her alone all day and even ignoring all the torment she goes through with the principal. - egnomac

The Contenders

11Kevin's Parents - Home Alone

They forgot their kid. That is just wonderful parenting - AnonymousChick

12Mufasa - The Lion King

Authoritarian and overprotective. Forced a species (the hyenas) to live in a graveyard where they starve to death, and didn't let his son (Simba) go where he wanted to go, even if he had an adult guardian (Zazu) for protection. Mufasa fails on many levels.

I'm glad I don't have someone like Mufasa as a father, because if I did, then I would be grounded for the rest of my life, and I'm thankful that I'm not.

13Ariel - The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea
14Lila Crane - Psycho II

In opposite to protect your daughter to anyone danger, she makes her daughter seduces Norman Bates for make him go crazy for the second time. I hate Lila Crane with all my love. I think she's so annoying and her scream.... I'll never want her to be my mother.
