50 Most Offensive Movie Characters

Carrie

Why They're Offensive: No, not that Carrie. We're talking about Four Weddings And A Funeral 's love interest, offensive because of the sheer gulf between the sexy, serial-shagger character Richard Curtis wrote, and Andie McDowell's wooden, listless performance.

Most Offensive Moment: "Is it raining? I hadn't noticed," says McDowell with all the passion and enthusiasm of a lettuce.

Elizabeth Halsey

Why They're Offensive : Liz is the eponymous Bad Teacher , a gold-digger who is only in the job so she can snare wealthy substitute teacher Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake).

Most Offensive Moment: Stealing test answers so she can win a bonus for the best exam results… just so she can pay for a boob job.

Henry F. Potter

Why They're Offensive: Only one man - George Bailey - can stop Potter from total financial control of Bedford Falls in It's A Wonderful Life . Trouble is, in one parallel universe there is no George Bailey. Welcome to Pottersville.

Most Offensive Moment: A destitute George visits Potter asking for help. Potter (who has actually nabbed George's money) calls the police instead, the heartless swine.

Dick Grayson

Why They're Offensive: Robin has always a bone of contention amongst Batfans, and Chris O'Donnell's bland, smirking portrayal of the Caped Crusader's sidekick was instrumental into ruining the 1990s' franchise. Christopher Nolan banned the character, saying he'd leave if Robin was re-introduced; he's been good to his word.

Most Offensive Moment: The gag about "holey rusted metal" in Batman Forever . Even the 1960s series didn't stoop that low.

Mark Zuckerberg

Why They're Offensive: The ultimate Internet nerd turns out to be the ultimate troll, as the socially awkward anti-hero of The Social Network fires off intellectually precise rudeness in all directions.

Most Offensive Moment: Zuckerberg's withering put-down to a lawyer - "You have part of my attention - you have the minimum amount. The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook, where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing. Did I adequately answer your condescending question?"

Phil Connors

Why They're Offensive: Misanthropic weatherman whose hatred of Punxsutawney goes into overdrive when he finds himself repeating Groundhog Day over and over again.

Most Offensive Moment: After days of research and false starts, Phil beds a local woman by pretending they were old classmates.

Megan

Why They're Offensive: There's always one Megan on a hen party - loud, loutish, lusty and having a better time than the rest of the Bridesmaids put together.

Most Offensive Moment: The post-credit sex tape, in which she gets jiggy with the Air Marshal and a submarine sandwich.

Albert Spica

Why They're Offensive: Before Dumbledore, Michael Gambon played the thief in The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover whose obsession with food is a weapon he wields against others.

Most Offensive Moment: After he's killed a love rival by force-feeding him pages from books, his wife (Helen Mirren) forces Albert to eat the cooked corpse.

John Blutarsky

Why They're Offensive: Known by his full name only to his parents, Bluto runs the Delta Tau Chi fraternity in National Lampoon's Animal House with a single-minded devotion to drunken debauchery that's kept him in college for seven years.

Most Offensive Moment: Impersonating a zit using a cream puff.

Blake

Why They're Offensive: As if the play of Glengarry Glen Ross wasn't rude enough, David Mamet specially wrote Alec Baldwin's character into his film adaptation in order to verbally abuse the real estate salesmen into greater productivity.

Most Offensive Moment: Asked what his name is, Blake yells, "Fuck you, that's my name!! You know why, Mister? 'Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove a eighty thousand dollar BMW. That's my name!"
