17 of the biggest jerks in movie history

We hate them all

Paul Moore

We hate them all.

In the most simplistic terms, movie characters can be categorised into two groups, goodies and baddies. Every so often though this duopoly is broken up by a  jerk and these characters are the absolute worst.

The way I see it, at least you know where you stand with characters like Michael CorleoneNurse Ratchet and Freddie Kruger. It’s obvious that they would harm you at the first available opportunity, but jerks are different.

These characters have the ability to get under your skin, slowly gnaw at your brain and ultimately make you hate them with every fiber of your being.

Here’s our tribute to some of the best bullies, bastards and buttheads in cinematic history.
