You’re supposed to root for the protagonist of the movie, but sometimes that’s hard to do.
A recent online discussion lists movie protagonists that are actually horrible people. Here are the top responses.
Rose Dawson – Titanic
I get that Rose’s fiance isn’t the best person in the world, but she ditches her entire family for some guy she just met.
Then she drops the Heart of the Ocean off the boat at the end despite its large reward.
Scott Pilgrim – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
To be fair, this is the entire point of the movie: Scott Pilgrim isn’t a good dude, and he has to come to terms with that.
Maverick – Top Gun
Despite thinking he’s the greatest pilot in the world, Maverick is indeed cashing checks his body can’t cash.
Claire Dearing – Jurassic World
After a history of disaster surrounding the park dinosaurs, Claire would know better than to let them get out and endanger everyone.
Well, you thought wrong.
Bill – Twister
What kind of guy brings his fiance to the middle of nowhere and spends the entire time flirting with his ex-wife?
Diana Prince / Wonder Woman – Wonder Woman 1984
After a successful debut feature film, many moviegoers were disappointed with how Diana is portrayed in Wonder Woman 1984. The idea of wishing Steve back into existence by taking over a random person’s body doesn’t sit well with fans.
Peter Venkman – Ghostbusters
Venrkman hits on his students, abuses his power, and falsifies his research.
Walter Peck made a very reasonable request, and Venkman acts like he’s the worst person in New York City.
James Bond – The James Bond Franchise
It shouldn’t be surprising that Mr. Bond isn’t the best person, but that’s also part of his job. He’s not supposed to be nice; he’s supposed to get the job done.
Daniel Hillard / Euphegenia Doubtfire – Mrs. Doubtfire
Anytime you purposely attempt to kill someone with an allergy at a restaurant, you should be jailed. Instead, Daniel Hillard can see his kids again.
Dewey Finn – School of Rock
Do you know what’s not cool? Impersonating as your roommate so you can be a substitute teacher for kids attending a prestigious school. Their parents pay an arm and a leg for tuition and have their lives endangered.
Tom Hansen – (500) Days of Summer
Tom Hansen is not a good person. He spends far too long hung up on his ex-girlfriend while living in a delusional fantasy world.
Thankfully, he comes to his sense at the end, but my god, man, talk to a therapist.
Grandpa Joe – Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Oh sure, now that your grandson has a Golden Ticket, you can get out of bed.
Grandpa Joe is a bad person and should feel bad.
