14 Embarrassing and Tawdry Moments in Otherwise Dignified Franchises
You know the feeling. You’re slamming popcorn, deep in the world a great movie has created for you, then boom! One moment shakes you right out of it. A moment so abrupt and off-putting that it might as well have come with a record scratch sound effect. Whether it was a tone-deaf joke, a completely insane plot point, or a god awful CGI blunder, this moment undid all the work that went into suspending your disbelief. If you’re a big enough fan, you’ll check out a “making of” doc, but when they pull back the curtain during the film itself… Not cool.
You might be able to shake it off and get right back into the movie, but sometimes it’s all you can see. Forever. Blogs will be written. Parodies and memes will be made. And from now on, any time you google the movie, this moment is sure to pop up. If you’ve seen any of these 14 movies, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.
