Though The Beach is one of my favorite movies, I find Leonardo Dicaprio extremely unlikeable in it.

I hate Pitt in everything,but I really hated his character in Inglorious bastards. Pretty much all the bastards in that film were unlikeable to me.

The Chinese bully wanted Jaden to stay off their kind, he bullied him a second time before Jaden pays him back with a bucket of water

Peter in Amazing Spider-Man. I love Andrew but he was a angsty hipster prick in the movie and just irritating and as a fan it was painful to sit through.

I didn't care for Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man either. Overall, I was really let down by that movie my goodness, what a travesty that was.

I wasn't let down since I thought it looked like a wreck anyway. But oh well. We do have good Spidey movies thankfully.

The main heroine in Brave annoyed me, as well as Lightning McQueen (even though that was intentional) and Mater in Cars.

Pretty much all the main characters the the Star Wars prequels were either poorly written, poorly acted, or just plain dull, or any combination of those three. So definitely not likeable there either.

Orlando Bloom was so boring in the Pirates movies that they pretty much made every subsequent movie in the series the Jack Sparrow Show. The same thing, unfortunately, kinda happened to Cyclops, before it just became all about Wolverine.

Everyone's bagging on Garfield Spidey, but he doesn't even come close to the WTF-ness of Tobey in SM3. Egotistical, then emo, AND flabby.

Oh, and pretty much everyone in freaking Pride & Prejudice, although that was largely intentional...and I've seen it so many times in my English class now that I'm totally sick of hearing English girls talk in high pitched voices.

Tony pushes it in Iron Man, but that's kind of the point. We see him humbled, and we see his nice side. He's a jerk with a heart of gold. But in Iron Man 2... less of the latter, more of the former.

Much as I dislike the Raimi Spider-man films, I'd say it only really affects the third film, but again, that's kind of the point. However, MJ is a really unlikeable character in 2 and 3. Especially 2.

You were at a certain point, i.e. before he turns to the dark side. The problem is that he was unlikable before that. Not even unlikable, just annoying.

Peter Parker, ASM.
Anakin, in AOTC. In ROTS I didn't mind him, but I really liked Young Anakin from TPM. Imo, that was Anakin at his purest.
While I love the movie and find the performances fantastic, nobody in Requiem for a Dream, save maybe Sarah, is likeable.
