Worst Movie Characters of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Jar Jar Binks (Ahmed Best) - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Jar Jar Binks (Ahmed Best) - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Jar Jar Binks is a fictional character from the Star Wars saga created by George Lucas. A major character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he also has a smaller role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and the television series ...read more.

I wish Disney would use their editing powers for good. If they can make the expanded universe non cannon then they can edit out jar jar presumably to edit something else in but hell just cutting out any scene that he says anything would be an improvement. Even if it leaves gaps in the story.

Why does he have to exist?! Jar jar annoys me and makes me want to punch him in the face. All he does is to mess up in fights and bother the other characters. He never was helpful or funny in any way. Death to jar jar!

If the devil had a son or someone even worst than him this would be the right pick. Jar Jar is one of the many reasons the prequels sucked. I can't wait for Star Wars Episode 7.

He is so annoying! - LedgerDraven

2 Bella (Kristen Stewart) -Twilight

I could write a thesis with reasons as to why Bella is one of the worst characters in the literary and cinematic universe. One, is that she is too self-centered. Rather than appreciating the people around her, she goes and whines about her life and goes after a guy whom she, as the story goes on, gives her everything too. Putting aside their apparent magnetic connection to each other, she and Edward have not shared anything that would prove their love for each other. Their conversations are bland and the guys obvious stalker-ish actions does not scare her off, even if the same kind of intense love could be felt from the werewolf lover. And, she plays with both men, and acts as if she is the victim of this already supernatural world. It's just stupid.

Insufferable, shallow, vain, boring, and incredibly selfish character. How is the audience expected to like an awful character like Bella? She's the epitome of a flat/unlikable character. Doesn't help that Kristen Stewart portrayed her, and her acting is just... flat out horrendous.

Just an Awful actress. And with every other Twilight movie it gets worse..

Edward: I watch you sleep every night.
Bella: Aww

That explains everything

3 Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) - Twilight Trilogy Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) - Twilight Trilogy Edward Cullen is a fictional character in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. He is featured in the books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, and their corresponding film adaptations, and the as yet unfinished novel Midnight Sun—a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward's perspective. ...read more.

So boring and painful to watch. He was trying to play the mysterious, bad guy, sarcastic punk that the good girl falls in love with, but come on, he sucks!

Who doesn't hate this guy, Edward is the opposite of what a Vampire is suppose to be. - egnomac

He is such an ass who doesn't care for anything. He's such a cry baby. He's an insult even to be called a vampire!

Even Robert hates him!

4 Bucky Larson (Nick Swardson) - Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star
5 Pistachio Disguisey (Dana Carvey) - The Master of Disguise

This movie was so irritating and unfunny. This character is such a whiny stereotyped Italian nerd. His disguises are lame and his name is awful. Seriously, what kind of name is pistachio?! Oh, and his turtle-man costume sucked balls!

Worst name and accent in the history of cinema.

This guy is such an offensive Italian stereotype and he's not even funny.Even Mario isn't that racist.

Am I not turtley enough for the Turtle Club?

6 Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery) - Saw: The Final Chapter
7 Maynard (Doug Bradley) - Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines

He's awesome take him off.

8 Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) - High School Musical

This guy is such a gary stu who thinks he can have all the girls he wants. All the Disney movies today are total bull and painful to watch.

Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) is such a gary stu who thinks he can have al the girls he wants as well.

9 The Toy Maker (Sylvester Stallone) - Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over

An embarrassing role for Sylvester Stallone. - egnomac

This was really soft compared to the other guys he's played, like Rocky and Rambo.

10 Gene - The Emoji Movie

Top ten material here.

The whole movie was awful.

The Contenders

11 Veruca Salt (Julie Dawn Cole) - Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory

Someone should make her shut up! Her voice is irritating

I really want to slap that girl. She's such a spoiled brat!

I felt bad for her actually, because it was her dads fault that she grew up so spoiled, and she will live a hard life in the future because of him...

She's someone you just love to hate. - LedgerDraven

12 Aang (Noah Ringer) - The Last Airbender Aang (Noah Ringer) - The Last Airbender Avatar Aang is a fictional character and the protagonist of Nickelodeon's animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender, voiced by Zach Tyler Eisen. Aang is the last surviving Airbender, a monk of the Air Nomads' Southern Air Temple.

Who the heck was the actor who played Aang?!

13 Carter Horton (Kerr Smith) - Final Destination
14 Doloris Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) - Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

Umbridge is an evil and hated character, but in no way is she bad. She was written really well, and the actor that played her did a good job, and the only reason she is on the list is because people don't like the character, and I'm pretty sure worst movie character would apply more to Jar Jar Binks, or the entire cast of Twilight.

She is the one character that achieved being worse than jar jar

She taught us pink is the color of PURE EVIL!

Surprisingly, pink isn't even her color.

15 Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Tim burton, aren't you getting tired of being unoriginal?! Why can't yu just do original stuff and stop re-imagining things that were already fine by adding dark visuals. Some movies shouldn't have dark visuals. I really used to like tim burton's work back when he had good ideas and amazing characters back in 90's. I really enjoyed Edward scissorhands, batman, pee wee's big adventure, beetle juice, ed wood and nightmare before Christmas. At the beginning of 2000's, tim stopped being original and decided to remake stuff. His first failure was with the remake of 'planet of the apes' in 2001 who sucked big time. It had bad actors, bad action scenes and bad characters. Not to mention, that it was way too long and boring. When I heard that burton is going to remake one of my favorite childhood movies I was quite mad. In my opinion, no one can ever beat the original 'willy wonka and the chocolate factory'.

Okay, just stop saying that tim burton's version was more faithful to the book. The novel was great and I really liked mel stuart's movie, even though it wasn't like the book. But tim burton just ruined it.
In the original book, wonka was kind, loving, sweet, somewhat mischievous and he called the kids by their real name. Depp's wonka is mean, rude, incoherent and annoying. I like johnny depp, but I really don't think he fits this role. I would rather prefer Nicholas cage or jim carrey to play wonka. And if burton tries to be closer to the book, why didn't he make wonka look like in the book. I don't remember him looking like a hermaphrodite. Also, depp gave him the most annoying voice I ever heard. I did all my best trying to stay at wonka's high-pitched super-annoying voice. It sounds almost as terrible as jar jar binks's voice. Almost!

I remember when I heard his annoyingly high-pitched voice for the first time, and my ears began to bleed really bad. My mom noticed this and brought me to the hospital. Imagine the shame when I had to tell the doctor that my ears were bleeding because of depp's willy wonka voice. But that was nothing! The trauma when I saw his girly haircut was uninimaginable. I was about to die.

I thought he was funny. It's not his fault he acts weird when he's had a troubled past. Though the old wonka was still better, this is still a great movie.

16 Dex Dogtective - Foodfight! Dex Dogtective - Foodfight!

Pretty much ALL Foodfight characters are bad

Stupid dumb idiot - davidcat


17 Davey Stone (Adam Sandler) - Eight Crazy Nights

At least we have learned why he is behaving that way. His parents got killed in a car accident during his basketball game and he couldn't let it go! When he finally opened the letter from his parents, his true colors have been revealed and is now making up for his mistakes in the end! It's that you guys need to learn to look what's inside people's hearts!

Davey is one of the most unlikable characters ever he's mean to everyone he drinks, is always causing trouble for everyone and the only one that actually tries to help him is Whitey unfortunately Davey constantly puts him down time and time again even shoving him into a portapotty and then freezes him. - egnomac

He's a unlikable brat who's ticked off because his parents died, he should just get over it and stop being a total prick to everyone.

He is like the louise the zero male version of the movie. - NelMemazo

18 Gord (Tom Green) - Freddy Got Fingered

More like Tom Green (Tom Green), am I right? - xandermartin98

19 Alice (Milla Jovovich) - Resident Evil Trilogy

Alice is the reason I don't watch the Resident Evil movies, I really hate the fact that Paul Anderson makes the whole movie about her rather than any of the characters from the game and I completely agree with Egnomac about Alice being overrated because its true, the only reason I ever watched Resident Evil Apocalypse is because Jill Valentine was in it.

I hate Alice in the same way most wrestling fans hate John Cena she's overrated and is constantly being shoved down our throats. - egnomac

I hate her so much for stealing the spotlight from Jill & Clair. - ZZDOORAL

Resident evil just shows that just because your hot, doesn't mean you can act! Paul w.s. anderson is like a guy who said, "I want to be like paul t anderson, but ill just have to be the w.s. anderson, who is just as great"! Well, nice dreaming, but it didn't work!

20 Jill Sadelstein (Adam Sandler) - Jack and Jill

Does it ever occur to her the reason she's so lonely is because she's so obnoxious, she talks way too loud and is always getting in everyone's business. - egnomac

She's so incredibly annoying and she never shut up, they say she's from Brooklyn but I think she may be from Jersey considering that she talks way too loud and flips out for no reason. - egnomac

Sandler's movies are well known for being unfunny, boring and annoying, filled with potty humor and innuendos. This must be one of his worst characters ever!

It's just Adam sandler as a woman. Would you expect any better?

21 Colonel William F. Guile (Jean-Claude Van Damme) - Street Fighter

Guile's character in the movie was really bad thanks to Jean-Claude Van Damme's terrible acting and his accent that made it impossible to understand what the hell he was saying. - ZZDOORAL

22 Bud Macintosh (Pauly Shore) - Bio-Dome
23 Norm - Norm of the North Norm - Norm of the North

2 words rob shniter this movie sucks

24 Sid (John Leguizamo) - Ice Age Trilogy

He so damn annoying when he's not annoying his friends he's constantly making a fool of himself Sid always makes the worst out of a bad situation it's no wonder his family abandoned him. - egnomac

I hope he gets eaten. - ZZDOORAL

25 Alice (Isabel Lucas) - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
26 Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) - Star Wars: Attack of the Clones/Revenge of the Sith

He couldn't act. At all. - RiverClanRocks

You mean darth vadof

27 Nils Bjurman (Yorick van Wageningen) - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)
28 Johnny (Tommy Wiseau) - The Room

This movie gives the GAME The Room a bad name. The game is completely unrelated. Whenever someone hears the name The Room, they think of the movie. The game is one of the best iPad games ever.

29 Olaf - Frozen Olaf - Frozen Olaf the Snowman is a character from the 2013 animated film Frozen, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Don't Care Much For Him

30 Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) - Fifty Shades of Gray Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) - Fifty Shades of Gray

An idiot with little self-esteem

31 Patty Farrell (Laine MacNeil) - Diary of a Wimpy Kid

She's just a snot nosed brat.

How can be so annoying? Poor greg, he deserved a better life. - NelMemazo

32 The Cat in the Hat (Mike Myers) - The Cat in the Hat

I can't blame mike myers for this, but we should blame the screenwriters for raping the cat in the hat character! I mean this cat right here is just annoying, unfunny, unpleasant, hideous, and makes painful pop culture references, innuendos, and double entendres. this has got to be one of the worst film characters of all time!

This is one creepy live action cat!

We get it you're a cat you don't have to keep saying that

33 Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf) - Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Putting Shia LaBeouf in anything will ruin a good movie. - egnomac

Ruined the whole movie

34 Koba - Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
35 Seymour Simmons (John Turturro) - Transformers Trilogy

He's just cliche and unoriginal. Anything else?

I even HATE his stupid name!

First he was being portrayed as a villain, then he tries awkwardly to be a good cop, but now he's an ALLY? UGH! I just don't get it!

He's sort of like the Great Gazoo from the Flinstones cartoon or Captain Quark from the Ratchet and Clank video games, except both these characters are more tolerable than this piece of crap. No offense.

36 Arnold (Darren Ewing) - Troll 2
37 Earl Montgomery (Martin Lawrence) - National Security

He's a bad guy

He put a good cop in jail

He's a lair

I F***ing hate this black man!

He's an idiot, selfish, and evil. He uses the racial profiling to put an innocent man in jail and he doesn't want anyone to know he acted so stupid because he didn't want to be stung by bees.

38 Robin (Chris O'Donnell) - Batman Forever/Batman & Robin
39 Ruth DeWitt Bukater (Frances Fisher) - Titanic
40 Oscar (Will Smith) - Shark Tale

I think oscar still being better than lola. - NelMemazo

I think Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) has the same pesonality as Oscar (Will Smith).

41 White Goodman (Ben Stiller) - DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story

Screw anyone who hates him. He was hilarious in Dogde ball

42 Jacob (Taylor Lautner) - Twilight
43 Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) - Transformers Trilogy Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) - Transformers Trilogy

What's even worse is that he even has those stupid fans who can't let him go!

I believe he's supposed to be part of the term "comic relief"!

Does he ever stop screaming?

44 Rachel Dawes - Batman Begins & The Dark Knight

In the Dark Knight she doesn't stop grinning. She smiles more than the Joker for crying out loud

She is not that annoying and where is Mary Jane (spider man trilogy) she is such a duck

45 Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) - Finding Nemo/Finding Dory

Was hoping the sharks would turn up, and put her out of her misery. This was only 15 minutes in...

46 High Five - Emoji Movie
47 Chip Douglas (Jim Carrey) - The Cable Guy

What was up with that spider crawling down his face while he was talking on the phone with steven?

Chip Douglas is a perfect example of what happens when you let your kids watch too much T.V.. - ZZDOORAL

48 Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) - Cars/Cars 2

Please don't diss Mater! He is a favorite character from even my parents!

Mater is not a bad character besides he is so funny. -

Hate Mater and Hate Cars he's so annoying through out the whole movie.

Hey I Like Mater!

49 Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) - Shrek 2/Shrek the Third

He's a mamas boy, but he is not loveable like every mamas boy should be. He is honestly one terrible character. He's ugly and his personality can't even cover that up. Farquad was weird and kind of a perv, Fairy Godmother was actually very likable, Rumple was annoying and Prince Charming is honestly a huge piece of crap. I mean is he even a prince his mother is a fairy not a queen! Also, the way he treated Shrek and Fiona was so eviil that his deat was the most satisfying out of all the Shrek villains, that no one seemed to even care. Let's be honest crushed by a tower, a heavy one makes it more satisfying which shows how much of a failed acting career he had in the play. Bye bye Charming and also NO R.I.P! - EJ0602
