Look, guys. We are NOT hating. We love this series based on a wizarding school for brilliant teens...but teens will be teens. Who CAN'T remember something cringey that they did from the ages of 11 to 17? Exactly.

Today, we've gathered 21 hilarious moments from the 'Harry Potter' film series that kinda made us cringe, either from secondhand embarrassment or from pure awkwardness caused by the tension on screen. I mean, Lavender Brown getting dissed by Ron while he's unconscious? Hermione calling Luna 'Looney?' It hurts to see.

Most of these are from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (we're sorry).
