    What are some moments that you've seen in otherwise good movies that just made you wanna shake your head in embarassment?

    One for me would be the codename scene in X-Men First Class.

    80% of the jokes in BB and TDK.
    The awkward "Yippie ki-yay motherf**ker" in Die Hard With a Vengeance.
    The romantic scenes in AotC and RotS.
    90% of JarJar's scenes in TPM.
    Any time Chewie is pro-active in the Original Trilogy.
    Luke being all sad in ANH for Obi's death and then giddy as a child when he destroys a TIE Fighter.

    Ugh. I don't know if seeing that on a loop makes it better or worse.

    This times 10000!

    I love the joke from HISHE, "worst death scene ever".

    Yikes.

    I always find it so odd when perfectly capable actors completely forget how to act...

    You're right.
    And now that it's been quoted twice, I'm watching a double-endless loop.
    I can't... turn... away. :argh:

    "We're still here. That means they haven't killed us yet either" in The Dark Knight. Stupidest ****ing line ever.

    Those two annoying cops throwing out one liners during the chase scene in TDK.

    That was Laboeuf-worthy dialogue right there.

    The answering machine in Swingers. Here we have this brilliant, realistic comedy (for the most part), and right there at the beginning, is this awkward scene with the answering machine talking to him like it is sentient. Seriously, this is one of my top 3 movies of all time, probably, but that scene. Damn.

    When Venom appeared at the end of Spider-Man 3.

    Anytime Venom would speak in Spidey 3. Not only does he take off his mask when he speaks (defeats the purpose of having Venom in the first place), it seems like they never ADR Topher's lines. So he sounds kinda muffled due to his prosthetic teeth.

    Agreed.
    I always cringe at some of Bane's dialogue in TDKR. For one, I never like the way he says "CRASHING THIS PLANE!".
    Also the Robin line from the end of the movie. I like the nod, but its done so poorly.

    I feel bad for Marion only because you got this beautiful Oscar winner doing the most embarrassing scene I've seen in a while. I was embarrassed for her.

    The "sex scene" in Munich where we see flashes of the terrorist attack intercut with Bana having sex with his wife.

    I didn't mind Bane's dialogue so much due to the over-the-top nature of the character. But I did cringe when Bane was choking Batman during their first fight, and Bale was struggling to talk..but still using his 'Bat' voice. It was awful.

    I thought it was funny. Not in a good way.

    That got one of the bigger laughs that I've seen in superhero movies. And technically I think it WAS supposed to be awkward and uncomfortable and....dare I say it, CRINGE WORTHY!
