Wow, i wouldnt have put her up there at all, find her quite endearing, especially in spiderman 2...

i suspect Jar Jar binks will be close to the top of many peoples lists.. but i didnt mind him either... actually struggling to come up with a suggestion... hmm... Shia's character in the last indy film was pretty bad... what was his name ? Mutt or something?

wow, i didnt find her that annoying.

however, the kid in unforgiven brought the whole thing down a notch for me. i couldn't stand him.

My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm 27 years old.
I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced
diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning,
if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while
doing stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

1) Anikin from Episodes I - III (especially I, but Hayden's acting [or lack of] didn't help in II or III)
2) Merry & Pippin from LotR (they completely drew me out of the movies)
3) Legolas & Gimli from LotR when they're doing their who killed more baddies schtick (every time I saw this I had to wonder if they got the dialog from watching people playing D&D).
4) Jack Black - pick any of his characters, it doesn't matter.
5) Adam Sandler - again, pick a character.
6) The kid and the mother from Kubrick's Shining
7) The black "computer expert" from Transformers
8) The blonde "computer expert" from Transformers
9) The MiB agent from Transformers
10) The kid in Old Yeller (I felt no sympathy for him when the dog died)

That has to be the most idiotic thing I ever read in my life. It's obivous the writer doesn't have the first understand of the Spiderman mythos. I would vote Ace Ventura the most annoying charater ever!

The dog died in Old Yeller?--Damn

I have to agree that Jar Jar and the kid in Star Wars Ep I were the most annoying. Aunt May was not annoying at all.

She wasn't that bad at all. I think recent history would have to be Jar Jar Binks, in my opinion, hands down now one added less to a movie than this "creature"

With the spider man trilogy being the lamefest that it is, i hardly noticed how bad she was, but going back over scenes and dialogue i think i kinda agree with this guy. I think he's being a little tongue in cheek anyways. I mean there's gotta be someone lamer than her, but on the other hand she is offering some pretty whitebread middle of the road advice. Yeah, we get it aunt bee, let's all be good people.

I personally did not find that the Aunt May character to be annoying in the three films.

If that's your opinion, so be it (though, I'm guessing I hit a nerve with at least one of my selections for you to go trolling my collection).

Maybe I should add:
11) Any character from the Saw movies

He was way off with Aunt May. And his comments about the elderly will come back to haunt him, because he will one day get there himself if he is lucky.

By the way, the most annoying character of memory that I can think of is Anikin in Episode I. This may change once I get a chance to think about it.

In recent movies I saw I found the most annoying character Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men.
