    List the most cringeworthy moments in films that you have watched, you can also give a description of the scene for those of us who may not have watched the particular film.

    Batman and Robin - When Mr. Freeze's thugs where singing that stupid Christmas song. The suit up scene, the bat-credit card.

    Street Fighter - When Ryu shot his "fireball" and that lame ass shoryuken uppercut ken did

    Mortal Kombat Annihilation - Baraka got knocked off of the cage and somehow it showed Rain falling into the pit. Johny Cage's shadow kick, every scene with Shao Kahn, Shinnok's appearance.

    Every single moment in Batman and Robin. Though I can't remember a time when I laughed and cringed at the same time.

    I didn't think the shia swinging with the monkeys was that bad or even that long to notice enough. the cgi gophers were more cringe inducing.

    I agree that the flag scene was a but too much . The worst part of Spiderman 3 for me was emo peter attacking brock at the bugle.

    Just the thought of how the glass killed Rosalie Octavius in Spider-Man 2 was a cringeworthy moment for me.

    I love the street fight from Rocky 5, although it was a bit anticlimactic compared to other Rocky movies.

    The flaming skull in 2004's Punisher is cringe worthy for me.
    In the rerelease of Return of the Jedi where the extended singing performance in Jabba's Palace. God, I hate that.

    Han Solo saying "Laugh it up, fuzz-ball!" to Chewie in Empire Strikes Back.

    I thought it was hilarious when I was a kid, but it's unbearable now.

    I'm believe Sly Stallone would want you to forget about that whole movie in general.

    Anyways, the whole East Houston, Idaho Redneck bits in Superman II are a blemish on an otherwise good movie. Richard Donner did not plan on filming it at all. It was Richard Lester's take on what Americana is. Donner's vision was much more dramatic and less cheesy for those intended acts of villainy by Zod earlier on in the movie.

    [as New Yorkers battle the Green Goblin, who's attacking Spider-Man]
    New Yorker on Bridge: Leave Spider-Man alone! You're gonna pick on a guy trying to save a bunch of kids?
    New Yorker on Bridge: Yeah, I got something for your ass! You mess with Spidey, you mess with New York!
    New Yorker on Bridge: You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us.


    So bad. Movies should neve pander like that.

    That jazz sequence in Spider-Man 3. Don't remember hearing laughter in the theatre, which just made it feel all the more uncomfortable. Also, if I remember correctly the scene correctly, the end of Mortal Kombat 2.

    What?! The script was much better than B89. I even prefer B89. But it was a very clever script.

    It still doesn't make it any less cringeworthy.

    That's why I said they were pandering. It made me cringe.
