‘Turtle, turtle!’
22 Movies People Loved As Kids and Later Realized Were Super Bad

Man, kids are idiots. Have you seen one of these things? They’re hopeless at trivia. A lot of them have no apparent control over their limbs. If they get real young, they think things stop existing if they can’t see them. That’s why “peekaboo” works. These morons think you’re winking in and out of existence like a freaking god. You’re not playing “peekaboo,” you’re playing “witness me bend matter to my will, tadpole.”

Taking that into consideration, it’s a wonder most movies for kids are as good as they are. It’s also, unfortunately, why kids like the dumbest shit. Just about everyone remembers a movie they absolutely loved as a child only to grow up, find an ancient VHS tape in the attic, look it up on streaming because nobody owns a VCR anymore, and be horrified by its objective lack of quality. 

That’s why, when user I-am-Deathlock asked r/AskReddit, “What’s a movie you loved as a child that you now consider to be cringe worthy?,” thousands of Redditors could look back at the absolute turd bombs that wore out the family entertainment system.
