5 Worst Movie Characters

…and I don’t mean the actors playing them, I mean if the movie characters were actual people.

  • Reverend Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum) in Night of The Hunter
  • John Doe (Kevin Spacey) in Se7en
  • DIana Christensen (Faye Dunaway) in Network
  • Tony Manero (John Travolta) in Saturday Night Fever
  • Any character ever played by Alan Alda.

I ignored all the bad guys in slasher movies, because I’ve never seen a slasher movie.

Your suggestions in Comments.


  1. Saturday Night Fever is the only one of those movies I’ve seen.

    The only Alan Alda movie I can recall seeing is Canadian Bacon.

  2. Worst characters in a moral sense:
    -Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardiem) in “No Country for Old Men”
    -Carter Burke (Paul Riser) in “Aliens”
    -Jimmy Conway (Robert DeNiro) in “Goodfellas”
    -Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) in “Goodfellas”
    -Johnny Ringo (Michael Behen) in “Tombstone”

  3. Max Cady (also Robert Mitchum) in Cape Fear.
    And Max Cady (Robert DeNiro) in Cape Fear.

    As for champion bitch…

    Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino) in The Last Seduction.

    I assume historical figures are excluded, or I would nominate Caligula (The Robe), Amon Goeth (Schindler’s List), or Idi Amin (The Last King of Scotland).
