Sometimes all it takes is one scene to pull you right out of a movie and ruin your day. The movie could be great otherwise, but the one eye-sore, that one scene which feels so stupid and jarring, makes the whole thing feel tainted. It's not always the ending either, though there have certainly been a number of those. There are some flicks that just catch you unaware. Somewhere, scattered amongst a pretty great movie, is a scene that makes no sense at all. It angers you. You lash out at your family. Did the director think this scene was funny, artistic, meaningful? Whatever they thought they were accomplishing with this scene was not accomplished. They were wrong.
No movie is ever going to be perfect. Most movies are going to be flawed. There's usually a difference between a movie that is flawed and a movie that is terrible. That's obvious. But sometimes, all it takes is one flaw to make a movie terrible. These scenes are the unavoidable ones, the scenes that are referred to simply as "that one scene," maybe an upward eyebrow thrust or two. Everyone knows what you're referring to.
How can we defend a movie with these scenes in them? Well, the movie was cool, except for that one part. Can we discount it? I don't think so. The identifying feature of these movie-ruining scenes is that they always impact the rest of the movie. For the most part, these scenes are important. Whether it's a crucial character building moment, an action climax or the ending itself, these scenes change the way we see the movie as a whole. They change it forever. Here are the worst culprits of all, the ones we found it impossible to ignore. Here are 15 movies that were ruined by one scene.
15 Nooooo! – Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
14 Mr. Yunioshi - Breakfast at Tiffany's
13 It Was Me! - High Tension
12 The Book Is Pointless - Book of Eli
11 Tsunami Surfing – Die Another Day
10 Stigmata – The Butterfly Effect
9 Dance – Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows
8 The Love Card – Transformers 4: Age of Extinction
7 The Burly Brawl – The Matrix Reloaded
6 The Ending - Law Abiding Citizen
5 Vicker's Death – Prometheus
4 Rewinding Time – Superman
3 Hallelujah – Watchmen
2 The Fridge & Monkeys – Indiana Jones 4
1 Peter Parker Dancing – Spider-Man 3
When Peter Parker goes all pale and emo in Spider-Man 3, you'd figure that he would want to stay inside or go shopping at Hot Topic, but not Peter Parker. When Peter goes full emo, he puts on his dancing shoes and goes to jazz clubs. I'm not sure what the Spider-Man 3 team were thinking, but this scene is one of the most embarrassing moments I've ever seen in a movie. Tobey Maguire is an awkward little duck in the best of times. When he's moving his hips and snapping his fingers, that awkwardness level shoots up to a place that only dogs can hear. And his hair. Oh, sweet baby Jesus, his hair. This scene is almost bad enough to ruin all movies not just Spider-Man 3.
