“Gotti” on Netflix seems like a promising watch about the infamous mobster, but it is a colossal disappointment. Starring John Travolta, it feels like a made-for-TV movie that never redeems itself. The screenplay is disjointed, the acting is below average, and the narrative fails to engage the audience. You hope it will improve as you watch, but the anticipation only leads to frustration. 

Watching it is a regrettable experience that might leave you questioning your faith in movies and, perhaps, the world itself.

2. Dragonball Evolution

If there were one thing we could erase from history, it would be “Dragonball Evolution.” This movie adaptation of the beloved anime is widely regarded as a cinematic disaster, making it a painful experience for fans and newcomers alike. 

The film’s departure from the source material and its overall execution make it an insufferable viewing choice. The characters lack depth, the plot is poorly constructed, and the special effects are cringe-worthy.

3. Mean Girls 2

“Mean Girls 2” attempts to capitalize on the success of its first movie but falls short in many aspects. Lacking the charm and wit of the first movie, it feels like a forced extension that fails to capture the essence of the first movie, leaving audiences disappointed. The characters lack the depth and relatability that made the first film a hit, and the humor feels forced and uninspired.

4. Cats

Despite a star-studded cast, the movie fails to capture the magic of the stage production, making it an unbearable experience for many. The character design is uncanny, the plot lacks coherence, and the attempt to blend live-action with special visual effects results in a visual disaster.

This Turkish film, also known as “The Man Who Saved The World” or Turkish Star Wars, takes shameless copying to new heights by directly using clips from Star Wars. The result is a bizarre and poorly executed attempt at a sci-fi epic featuring cardboard cutouts and shameless rip-offs from various iconic franchises. This movie is not just bad; it’s an experience best avoided. The lack of originality and poor production values make it insufferable for any viewer.

8. Winnie the Pooh Horror Movie

The existence of a horror-themed Winnie the Pooh movie leaves many scratching their heads. This unexpected and unconventional take on a beloved childhood character raises questions about its purpose and necessity. The attempt to infuse horror elements into a traditionally light-hearted and whimsical world feels forced and out of place.

The live-action adaptation of “Avatar: The Last Airbender” disappoints fans and newcomers alike. Its inability to capture the essence of the animated series and its poor execution makes it an unpleasant viewing choice. 

The characters lack the depth and charisma of their animated counterparts, the special effects fall short, and the overall tone feels off. Fans of the original series find it insufferable due to the difference from the source material and the failure to translate its magic to the big screen.

10. Jaws: The Revenge

Attempting to continue the iconic “Jaws” series, “Jaws: The Revenge” falls flat with a weak storyline and lacks good execution. It struggles to recapture the original’s suspense, making it a disappointing addition to the franchise. 

The plot becomes increasingly implausible, the shark attacks lack tension, and the film relies on clichés rather than delivering genuine scares. It fails to live up to the legacy of the original “Jaws.”

11. Jack and Jill

“Jack and Jill” is one of Adam Sandler’s least appreciated films. Its cringe-worthy humor and questionable premise make it a film many would rather avoid, sparing themselves from a cinematic headache. 

The excessive use of childish jokes and a dull storyline makes it unbearable for anyone looking for a more interesting or mature cinematic experience.
