Most movies don't actively set out to annoy audiences, but sometimes a film just can't help but rub viewers the wrong way, and if those watching are lucky, they'll know within a few fast minutes what sort of ride they're in for.
That's certainly the case with these 10 films, all of which dared to be obnoxious, irritating or straight-up sacrilegious in their opening scenes, giving the audience a perfect invitation to bail out and find something else to watch.
But of course, many of us decided to tough it out - especially if we saw these films in cinemas - and hope that a bumpy start could be overcome.
While a few of these movies certainly wouldn't qualify as irredeemably bad, they are for the most part handicapped right out of the gate by some immensely ill-advised creative calls that definitely didn't pay off.
From pointlessly killing beloved characters to vomiting up cringe-worthy one-liners, horrendously ugly visuals and toe-curlingly awful comic relief, these films all stunk from practically their very first minute...
Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes).
