List Rules
Vote up the movies with better villains than heroes.

Sometimes movies and TV shows just don't pull off their heroes and the only saving grace that keeps audiences coming back is the villain. These fans took to Reddit to reveal which movies and shows they start pulling for the villains when the protagonists become too annoying to root for.

    Jurassic Park

    From Redditor u/THGilmore:

    My daughter at 8 cheered for the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. Note: Lego version.

    From Redditor u/Ms_Wibblington:

    My mum was worried she had let me watch Jurassic Park a little early until the T Rex ate the lawyer and my reaction apparently was "GOT HIM!!!"

    How The Grinch Stole Christmas

    From Redditor u/princezornofzorna:

    The Grinch. I don't like his redemption. The Whos' in Whoville suck.

    From Redditor u/TheMaskedGeode:

    At least with the live-action, I agree. The teacher laughs with the bullies, and why does no one go after the CHILD who ran off into the mountains, even The Whos’ that acted as his parents?! No wonder he hated them.

    Looney Tunes

    From Redditor u/WakeUpAlreadyDude:

    Wile E. Coyote.

    I always thought the RoadRunner was a show off and a jerk.

    From Redditor u/Tkieron:

    The man was just trying to eat in a desert. His methods weren't the smartest, despite him being a super genius, but how can you fault a creature trying to survive? And his prey taunting him at every turn.

    F*ck the Road Runner

    Tom And Jerry

    From Redditor u/maewtt:

    Jerry from Tom and Jerry. I always rooted against the instigator in that show. Sadly, Jerry almost always won regardless of who the instigator was.

    From Redditor u/Cherri_Fizz:

    In the earlier cartoons Jerry was justified, Tom was almost always the one starting sh*t and Jerry just had a clever defense. As the show went on though Jerry just became sadistic and started f*cking with Tom for no reason.

    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

    From Redditor u/adamolupin:

    It's been said before and I'll say it again: Jar Jar Binks. I recently rewatched the prequels thinking that Jar Jar wasn't so bad. My memory has to be off. It's been a decade or so since I've seen the prequels, it can't be that bad.

    Oh no. It was so much worse. My tolerance for his dumb f*ckery must have severely tanked because I had NO patience for his clumsiness or his stupidity. Every time he opened his mouth I wanted to punch him.

    Twilight

    From Redditor u/besee2000:

    Twilight! Oh how insufferable Bella was with her “oh woe is me, I’m so plain and quiet” when all the guys were drooling after her. Edward was creepy and Jacob was an annoying nice guy. Just take them all out.
