Name The DVD You're Now Embarrassed You Bought!

Come on now. You know you did it. You bought a DVD with the highest hopes, watched it and are now embarrassed by it. I'm not talking about "guilty pleasures" or "cult faves" or anything you still LIKE, even if no one else does. I'm talking about a DVD you paid real money for and now feel like an idiot for wasting your cash and time on. Something that just makes you uncomfortable about owning, even if you've already gotten rid of it, the fact that you once owned something so bad it makes you blush in utter embarrassment. Come on, spill your guts! We're here to help.

I was embarrassed to say I owned The Hulk after a college professor bashed it in class and asked if anyone had seen it.

Plays like a HS history project. Paid too much money for it to begin w/ and there is a rumor the content might be included w/ one of the actual LotR:RotK releases later this year.

One of the very first DVDs I ever bought, and without a doubt, one of the worst movies I've ever seen. And I'm a big fan of both Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck.

I didn't think Forces of Nature was THAT bad, but that's just me.

I had a pretty good track record...until a few days ago. cant believe I bought a dvd because I thought the pakaging looked cool and thought the film had a chance. well...TCM(2003) is garbage and I'm punishing myself with an overnight stay in the virgin of nuremberg device.

Britney Spears Live in Las Vegas? Wasn't for me... but it's still in my collection.... oh whatever. She's hot.

I don't show my copy of Fortress to too many people either.

I try not to buy DVDs that I do not like or that I might not like, but the one that I disliked the most is -

"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"

Picked this up in a bargain bin when I first got my player. Glad I didn't waste much on it.
