You are sitting down with your friends… got your sleeping bag, bowl of popcorn, six pack, and you’re looking at each other and someone eventually asks, “So, what do you guys wanna do?” And the inevitable is… watch a movie! You’re all looking to have some fun and enjoy one another’s company, because after all Yolo (or whatever you youngsters are saying these days). Everyone’s having a good time, but if you pop one of these mood-killers into your DVD player you’ll be looking at an early night. They’re not all bad movies, just movies that aren’t appropriate for the situation. This is a list we compiled of the top ten worst movies you could possibly pick for a laidback night with your friends.
10) American History X:
Nazi Edward Norton’s curb-stomping scene is one of the many things that’s hard to watch in this movie… it’s too intense for the bros.
9) A Haunting in Connecticut:
Horror movies are a staple at friendly gatherings, but sticking needles in your eyes would be more entertaining than watching this movie.
8) The King’s Speech:
Stuttering kings getting speech lessons in a movie only the British could make.
7) J. Edgar:
He was a psychotic head of the F.B.I. in this slow-moving and often slightly confusing period piece.
6) The Ten Commandments:
Nothing gets your juices flowing like some Moses parting the Red Sea in a four hour time frame.
5) The Boy in the Striped Pajamas:
Two cute little boys face inevitable doom and you already know the ending, but it doesn’t make it any less painful.
4) War Horse:
There’s nothing quite like the love affair between a boy and his horse. We haven’t seen it, but it just sounds awful.
3) The Passion of the Christ:
If you thought Moses was a party animal, wait til you see bloody Jesus getting down and funky.
Everything that can go wrong does for this overweight urban youth living with an abusive mother.
1) Schindler’s List:
Since the Holocaust is synonymous with partying then obviously this is a wise choice.
