Default Popular films that you hate

Had this discussion with friends recently. What films that are generally rather popular, or very successful, do you dislike/hate?

For me

Withnail & I
Moulin Rouge
Almost anything with Nic Cage or Adam Sandler


Go on, get it off your chest...

I have never seen a Rocky or a Rambo film. I'm rather pleased about that.

I've never seen Titanic or The Full Monty. Anything Hugh Grant is a no no. Tried to watch Avatar a couple of times but never got past about 30 mins of that utter bilge.

Full Monty is brilliant, as is Brassed off. I always thought Pete Postlethwaite was a brilliant actor - very under rated - although he did win an Oscar for "In the name of the father".

Avatar is ridiculous. It's smurfs play cowboys and indians in space.

Mamma Mia. I tried.watching this on a flight home to the UK one year, mainly because people were raving about it.

To be honest I switched it off after half an hour and watched The Grinch instead.

Also I remember walking out of the cinema early after watching The Blair witch project, I saw a guy look over at us as if to say..WTF was THAT piece of crap.
