15 Movies That Were So Pointless You Regret Watching Them

Movies have the power to captivate, inspire, and entertain. But, let’s face it: not all of them hit the mark. Below is a list of 15 films that left many movie-goers scratching their heads and regretting the time spent in front of the screen.

The Room (2003)

Oh, where to begin? “The Room,” Tommy Wiseau’s so-called masterpiece, is infamous for its poor acting, incoherent plot, and bizarre dialogue. While it’s gained a cult following for being “so bad it’s good,” many viewers can’t shake the feeling of hours they’ll never get back.

Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)

James Nguyen’s “Birdemic” is an eco-horror film that’s hard to defend. With its shoddy special effects, wooden acting, and an audio mix that’s all over the place, this one truly tests your patience. Some call it a lesson in how not to make a movie.

The Happening (2008)

Night Shyamalan has made some hits, but “The Happening” isn’t one of them. The idea of plants causing humans to spontaneously commit suicide is, well, unique. However, the execution left a lot to be desired, leading many to question its very existence.

Movie 43 (2013)

Boasting an impressive cast doesn’t save “Movie 43” from its disjointed sketches and crude humor. It’s a mishmash of randomness that left many wondering: why? It’s a testament to the idea that not all star-studded films are worth the watch.

Gigli (2003)

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez might have been a hot couple back in the day, but “Gigli” did them no favors. The chemistry was lacking, the plot confusing, and the dialogue cringe-worthy. Not the romantic comedy people were hoping for.

Catwoman (2004)

Halle Berry in a leather suit sounds promising, but “Catwoman” falls flat on its face. Straying far from its comic book origins, the film is littered with questionable CGI and a plot that left many scratching their heads.

The Last Airbender (2010)

Adapting a beloved animated series is tough. However, “The Last Airbender” didn’t just miss the mark; it launched the arrow in the opposite direction. With a muddled plot and whitewashed cast, it remains a sore point for fans.

Battlefield Earth (2000)

John Travolta’s passion project, based on L. Ron Hubbard’s novel, was a critical and financial disaster. With odd camera angles, cheesy dialogue, and a plot that makes little sense, it’s a journey of cinematic bewilderment.

After Earth (2013)

Will and Jaden Smith star in this sci-fi film that sadly didn’t resonate with many. Its heavy-handed themes, lackluster performances, and predictable storyline left audiences wishing they’d chosen another movie for the night.

Green Lantern (2011)

Ryan Reynolds has since redeemed himself as Deadpool, but “Green Lantern” remains a black mark on his record. The convoluted plot, coupled with poor CGI, made for a less than super superhero film.

The Snowman (2017)

With such a gripping trailer, expectations were high. Yet, “The Snowman” ended up being a patchwork of missing scenes and incoherent storytelling. Even Michael Fassbender couldn’t save this crime thriller from melting under scrutiny.

Skyline (2010)

Alien invasion movies are a dime a dozen, but “Skyline” manages to stand out—for all the wrong reasons. With a lack of compelling characters and a plot that seems to go in circles, it’s a test of endurance.

Dungeons & Dragons (2000)

Bringing a beloved game to the big screen is no easy feat, and this movie proves it. With its over-the-top acting and a storyline that barely resembles the game, it’s a roll of the dice that didn’t pay off.

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011)

Nick Swardson takes on the title role in this comedy that few found funny. With its raunchy jokes and clichéd storyline, many walked out of the theater asking themselves why they’d bothered in the first place.

Jaws: The Revenge (1987)

The original “Jaws” is a classic. Its fourth installment, however, is anything but. With a revenge-seeking shark and a plot that defies logic, it’s a deep dive into cinematic disappointment.
