Movies That Were So Bad People Couldn't Even Finish Them

Bad movies are a very special breed.

There are some bad movies that people tend to hold in about as high regard as they do any good movie.

Movies whose mediocrity, or downright awfulness, are almost part of their charm, make going to midnight screenings, or enjoying with friends over a couple of drinks, something to look forward to.

No one would expect Spice World to end up on the national film registry or lists of best films ever made, but it gets viewed repeatedly.

Some bad movies, however, do not fall into that "so bad they're almost good" category.

Indeed, these are the bad movies that people found so unbearably awful, that they couldn't even find it in them to stay with them till the end.

Redditor MichaelDj54 was curious to hear which movies people found so unbearable that sitting through them till the end was never going to happen, leading them to ask:
"What movie was so bad, you didn't even finish it?"

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
