Movie Protagonists That Were Completely Wrong Despite Being Portrayed as Right

It's annoying when a movie tries to make a character seem like a good person, even though their actions points towards them being the exact opposite.

It's enough to make you hate the character or the movie altogether. If you've ever felt that way, it's not just you. You're not alone.

Recently, someone in an online movie forum asked, “Which film's protagonist was simply wrong despite the movie trying to portray them as being right?” These are 10 responses from viewers.

"The President of the United States is having a sexual relationship with a lobbyist with business before the United States government, and this movie doesn't see that as an actual problem,” u/Hamblerger shared.

“In What About Bob? Bob, while sympathetic, totally violated the flawed Dr. Marvin,” u/North-Technician said. “Awesome movie, though.”

Another movie enthusiast said, “It's actually really messed up when you think about it. Plus, Pierce Brosnan‘s character actually seemed like a really nice guy. Felt bad for him at the end.”

Daniel Hillard (Mrs. Doubtfire)

Another critic online said, “I love this film buuuuutt our hero Muriel (“It's Marial!”) is a total out and out thief, who tricks her already put-upon Mother into handing over family savings."

u/CubesFan said, “As a teen, I absolutely loved Bender and definitely acted like him in a lot of ways. I loved that movie as an outright comedy, but as a parent of teens it’s a much sadder, disturbing movie to me now.”
