Watching a good movie is one of the best ways to relax after a long day and spend time with friends and family. Sometimes, movies even make an emotional impact on us. They can make us cry, laugh, or feel afraid. Either way, there are certain movies we keep coming back to.
But there are others that we never want to see again, usually because they were offensive or just plain horrible. So we looked back at the movies that seriously offended more people than you might realize. The stars of these films might regret being in a movie that angered so many people, or maybe they don’t regret it at all. Check out these classics of controversy on the silver screen right here.
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)
There were several things wrong with the 1990 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It wasn’t just bad acting that earned the film criticism, but there were also incredibly offensive scenes. For starters, a scene towards the end of the movie portrayed male aggression and harming women. Even though it was supposed to be comedic, there’s nothing funny about the Sheriff trying to attack the female lead Maid Marian, who was saved by Robin. These aggressive, sexual references made the movie inappropriate for all ages and offended many viewers (via IMBD).
