Had I not had 2 of my best friends to make fun of this with while watching, I would never have sat through it. And as much fun as we had, we should never have even bought tickets.

It starts out OK if you don't mind the awful animation, but then the story suddenly diverts from the source material and bastardizes a classic tale. Blasphemous.

The dialogue is so bad it's laughable, as is the so-called acting. Glad I saw it for free, but I could have lived without watching it. Not even Jessica Biel running around in skin-tight clothes could save it.

Went with a couple friends while I was in high school to see this. We paid 50 cents, and walked out after 45 minutes to ask for our money back. Yeah, it's that awful.

I was doing an excellent job of avoiding this mindlessness, but then I got stuck at someone's house for a little while & this was their choice of entertainment. I remember wanting to drive sharp objects through my skin. My brain recoiled in horror, its cells shrieking as they died from the stupidity.

I still have no idea what the point is of this film, if there even is one. By far one of the most overrated cult films ever.

So bad I can't even remember anymore what happened in the film. I just remember the feeling of wanting to die the entire time I sat watching it. I also remember it instilled a strong urge to avoid all things Final Fantasy for a few years, and that can't be good.

Overrated. Ridiculous to the point of insulting my intelligence. Finding out at the end that he was within walking distance of where he wanted to go & that I'd sat through all of his ramblings for nothing made it even worse. "Life is like a box of chocolates"? Well guess what, I'm allergic to chocolate.

Edited to add: I recently saw a thing on AV Club that echoed my thoughts on this film even better than what I said back when I first made this list, so I've added it here.
I had a gut-level reaction to Forrest Gump that I still have some trouble processing all these years later. I’m usually a “to each his own” person with regard to taste in pop culture, but that movie just makes me want to argue with everyone in the entire world who thought it was anything more than an offensive gimmick. Let’s try an elevator pitch and see how far it gets: “The luckiest mentally challenged man in the world ends up at big events in world history, while also falling in love and having a super positive effect on the world around him. Also, he’s magical or something.” What sort of cultural wish fulfillment was going on here? The desire to see a person with disabilities succeed in spite of himself? The desire to believe in astonishing coincidences? Why did the Academy reward the most pandering, ridiculous, borderline-offensive story possible with its highest award? Say what you will about Forrest Gump’s competition, but The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction endure, while Forrest Gump feels like a movie that just put one over on the world.

Frailty (2001)
I figured out everything that would happen during the entire film within the first 30 minutes. Then I forced myself to sit through the rest to make sure I'd figured it out correctly. I had. I should've just turned it off, looked it up online & saved myself the pains of sitting through the rest.

I went with a group of friends to see this while it was in theatres, and at various points ALL of us fell asleep. Even thinking about the movie makes me yawn.

Back in 2003, I rented this because I'd seen it on some favorites lists of friends of mine with mostly similar taste to mine. I turned it off about 40 minutes in when I realized I had no idea what was going on nor did I care.

Heavy Metal is an entertaining film. Heavy Metal 2000 is not. I fell asleep while watching this, and it's only 88 minutes long. And it was a movie I'd wanted to see, which makes my falling asleep even worse.

Note the complete lack of stars. I regretfully paid full price to see this in the theatre, and then refused to walk out on it to teach a friend of mine a lesson (another friend & I went to see a couple movies without her that she'd wanted to see...so she said she was picking one we HAD to go watch with her, and chose this...when she turned to us & said "We can leave whenever," we replied that no, we couldn't, because she'd insisted we go see it).

ANYWAY, what could've been at least a decent zombie flick (in that watching dumb teens get killed for being dumb can be entertaining in a karmic way) turned into utter stupidity as some "genius" decided to switch out the gory, violent deaths with actual sequences from the video game the film was adapted from. Not reenactments, mind you, ACTUAL VIDEO GAME FOOTAGE. A zombie gets shot in the head, cut to the video game. A zombie is about to bite someone, cut to the video game. I'm sure someone decided it'd make the film original somehow, because as everyone knows using previously filmed footage instead of creating something new is totally original.

Given the choice between watching this again & eating a bullet, I'd go with the bullet, and have no regrets.

A disjointed mess. I was intrigued by the idea of it, but in the maybe 40 minutes I actually watched of it I couldn't find a reason to care about anything going on in the movie.

If you saw it, then you know my pain. Also, you'll recall the scene where Indy hides in a refrigerator & survives a bombing. As that scene ended, I thought to myself 'I should leave now and get my money back.' But then I thought 'surely it can't get any worse than this?'. So I stayed to watch the rest, and I regretted every moment.

The worst vampire movie I've ever seen. As the opening credits rolled by, I figured that if Stan Lee, Frank Miller & Henry Rollins were in it (and they are) then it'd be somewhat decent/interesting. This film taught me to never trust anyone simply because I have some measure of respect for them.

The CGI is crap. The acting is awful. They completely ruin a perfectly good comic-book tale, and they kill Sean Connery, which you just don't do.

Some of my high school friends found this somehow & were so appalled that they decided to make everyone who wanted to continue hanging out with them suffer through it. Misery loves company, sure, but I could have lived forever without even acknowledging this film's existence.

Overrated, over-hyped, one of the most mind-numbingly boring films I've ever sat through. I get it, 2 Americans connect simply because they're Americans in Japan. But I don't get why I'm supposed to care. Oh yeah, and there's this too. I hate Sofia Coppola.

I liked The Matrix. Matrix Reloaded was worth watching for some of the action sequences, & at the time I thought the story was interesting enough. Then this film came along and ruined the trilogy & diminished my appreciation for Reloaded. (Personally I'd prefer it if The Matrix had ended right before the last scene when the phone rings...that would've been good enough for me forever.) A terrible ending that I saw coming but hoped against hope that it wouldn't.

I love Jim Carrey...have ever since In Living Color first came on TV. And while he plays his character in this film well enough, the script is so terrible and idiotic that he has no chance to save it. But that's the Farrellys for you. They love to celebrate stupidity. I, on the other hand, do not.

If it wasn't for the moments of slapstick, I wouldn't have laughed once during the entire film. Of course, those moments were even funnier once I'd reached the point of hating every character in the movie. Hearing countless people quote from it incessantly and watching it turn into a merchandising behemoth only added to my hatred of it.

I tried watching this. I think it's supposed to be a comedy, but there wasn't a single funny moment in what I managed to sit through before turning it off & returning it to Netflix.

Another movie I only sat through because I had friends to make fun of it with. And if that's what you're looking for this film is a goldmine. If you want a good movie, look elsewhere.

The first one was entertaining, even after multiple views. The second has its moments, but is only worth seeing once. This doesn't even rate a single view. Take all the jokes from the previous films & rehash them, throw in a bunch of babies for merchandise cash-in, and cobble together something vaguely resembling a plot, and this is what you get. Crap.

Supposedly this is a great film. My friends and I watched it during a Halloween horror movie marathon, and this was the only film of the night we quit paying attention to in favor of carrying on discussions of other topics. Every once in a while someone would glance at the projection screen & wonder aloud "is this still on?" I think the only reason we didn't turn it off was because so many people had sworn by it.

A friend of mine's family had rented this, and while they had it he & I decided since we seemed to be the only people who had NOT seen it yet, we should watch it. I remember us sitting there, stupefied, hating everything about it, and finally he stood up to turn it off when suddenly something funny finally happened. So he sat back down & we carried on. Another long stretch of being stupefied, hating every moment, then I suggested we turn it off...when again something funny happened. We then sat through the rest of it, & I can't remember if we laughed again or not. Neither laugh I recall was worth the torture of everything else, though, & I still wish I'd just avoided it.

I remember going to see this at a free sneak preview with a friend. While it was on the screen we were entertained well enough, but once it ended we stepped outside and discussed it. By the time we'd finished talking about it, we both concluded that we hated it. Between this & Lost in Translation, I have no urge to ever watch another Sofia Coppola film.
