If you have ever tried to calm down a toddler or put clothes on a raging baby, then you’d already know that parenting can be quite a challenging task. The best part? Irrespective of how tough you think it is to raise your gen-next, you aren’t the only one going through that feeling. However, parenting can also be quite rewarding – and sometimes, very funny.

We’ve compiled a list of 30 hilarious parenting tweets that prove how even the most seasoned pros often find themselves caught unawares and humbled while performing the everyday task of taking care of their kids. You would definitely relate to most of these tweets if you are a parent. If you aren’t, well, you can at least expect what’s coming next should you choose to become one later!

 

On anger

Do you seriously believe that limiting their screen time irks them the most? Just wait till you try and convince them to put on mittens in the snow.

 

 

On fiscal responsibility

It is all cute and adorable until the invoice arrives and you realize that your kid still doesn’t know the ABCs of a piano!

 

 

On being cautious

All parents will agree to the fact that a delayed reaction is a thousand times better than a no reaction.

 

 

On manipulation

There are always two ways to get a thing done. You either take the hard way and convince them to do it, or you use your mystical powers of manipulation!

 

 

On expectations

Well, at least the part where Daniel Tiger’s mom forgets to put pants on him quite routinely is relatable.

The 2010 decade is almost over now, and it was quite a mixed one for cinema lovers. While we got to some of the finest movie moments (and obviously, movies) ever, the decade also saw a fair share of the horrible movies – much like the nineties.  And along with terrible movies comes dreadful movie moments – many of them – and that takes a lot of time to forget.

The 2000s were full of fire movie moments as well. From the terrible Pearl Harbour and the love triangle, to the disappointing endings of Matrix Revolutions, Signs, The Village, High Tension, and Indiana Jones 4; to the wave of terrible CGI that showed up in Die Another Day, deer attack in second installment of The Ring, terrible Catwoman’s action scenes, Transformers 2 robot ball, and probably the worst of all, the Zion rave in The Matrix Reloaded!

So, which of the horrible cinematic scenes will make it to this decade’s list of worst movie moments? Let’s find out!

 

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice“Martha!”

“Martha” is probably the most infamous scene from this highly anticipated superhero flick that has been mocked so much that it would perhaps go down as the most mocked scenes of the decade, and it isn’t exactly hard to see why.

When Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer dropped, it was quite obvious that the two superheroes would team up to fight against Lex Luthor, but the movie could have looked for better motivation than “Martha!” Not only does the “battle of the century” ends in just over eight minutes, but the moment Batman is about to bring an end to Superman’s life, Superman just yells out “Save Martha!” Batman looks freaked out and demands why he said that particular name.

Lois Lane arrives on the scene and then clarifies that Superman’s name is Martha as well. This urges Batman to completely forget everything and why he decided to kill Superman in the first place! Seriously?

This terrible scene was probably as clunky as the sudden change of heart coming from Batman that was too quick to be taken seriously by the audiences. Also, why would Superman take his mother’s first name in order to refer to her?!

The scene was mocked (and is still mocked) and unfortunately for the Warner Bros., the scene will be mocked for the coming few decades as well!

 

 

Grown Ups – Farting Running Gag

If you’re looking to get bored from start to finish, this Adam Sandler movie should do the job for you. Not only is this movie utterly unfunny and silly, but it is also one of the most poorly written movies you would ever come across. In fact, the movie doesn’t have anything that you can call a plot, and it just moves from point to point and uses the same set of lame jokes repeatedly.

Case in point: Chris Rock’s character Kurt’s mother-in-law Ronzoni can be seen seated on a porch swing that is outside their lakeside house where the “grown ups” live, and she has nothing else to do but fart – again and again! In fact, the lady farts throughout the entire movie and that is meant to be the entire joke.

The entire movie is terrible, but these running gag liners sure do stick in the memory and are a classic example of just how unfunny and lazy these modern comedies can turn out to be. This is precisely why Grown Ups, a movie supposed to be this big hilarious comedy, ended up being a complete flop movie that was staggeringly unfunny.

 

 

Truth Or Dare – The Grinning Ghosts

If you are going to watch a horror film that is PG-13 rated, you know that you’d be in for a lot of clichés, jump scares, no gore or tension, and a bait for sequel at the very end. Truth or Dare, a movie that hit the screens last year, had all those typical elements of a horror movie, but what made it totally horrible was the main villain of the movie, as it was horrendous, to say the least.

In this flick, a bunch of luckless students end up being forced to play a Truth or Dare game in the supernatural form; whenever this game asks them a question, the entity possesses one of the people who are nearest to the next victim, and puts on this silly, Nicolas Cage grin and then asks “Truth or Dare?”

While this kind of stuff might be a great way to trigger unintentional laughter and be a good meme for sure, the movie Truth or Dare was actually meant to be a horror flick and not some silly flick where the ghosts are as scary as a couple of baby kittens you come across.

There is a revival going on in the horror genre and there are quite a lot of godawful films with terrible creative decisions being made, but this one clearly stands out thanks to how stupid and silly the main villain was.

 

 

The Hangover Part II – A Shemale Hooker

The Hangover Part II is without a doubt the worst sequel ever made! ‘Sequel’ should be used in a loose manner here, since the plot takes place in an entirely new setting, and also sucks out every bit of joy that the original one had. The cast chemistry, as well as the light hearted humor that the first installment had, was nowhere to be seen in this one.

Even as a standalone movie, it is the most horrible comedy flick of recent times, with most of the jokes coming of as seriously nasty. The lowest moment of the film came when Wolfpack while figuring out the events that transpired the previous night, visits a prostitute. He later finds out that the transgender in question is actually a transgender and has a penis. Phil finds himself disgusted while Stu is traumatized when he finds out about him and the hooker having anal sex.

Was that supposed to be a funny moment?

It was more like a shock and had a cruel and nasty vibe to it. Also, the way this flick treats the trans character as someone who should be treated in a disgusting way makes it a highly uncomfortable movie to watch.

 

 

9/11 – Elevator Freefall

We still cannot believe they did that!

The very fact that you get Charlie Sheen to act in a disaster movie based on 9/11 attacks, who has gone on and said some really crazy and controversial things about the event, is shocking enough, but the style in which this flick was made is very amateur and horrible, with soap-opera-like writing that would leave anyone shocked.

If anyone is making a movie based on a tragic event that is still very fresh and sensitive in the minds of people, the least they could do is be respectful and do justice to those who lost their lives, but this terrible flick even fails to do that. In fact, the closing title of the movie, which in fact dedicates itself to everyone who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks, feels more like an insult to them!

A scene in the movie shows a lift that has the movie’s main characters start free-falling at one point – a scene you’ll never forget even if you want to. The look and the entire setting of characters floating in thin air in the most absurd and fake ways possible will shock you to the core, and more so because the event is linked to none other than the horrific 9/11 attacks. This one clearly tops the list of most head-smacking horrendous things one can ever see.

10 Times When Actors Were Blamed For A Movie’s Failure By the Filmmakers

The entire process that goes into making a movie can be a very complex and quite multi-faceted scenario, and therefore, the movie’s success or failure cannot really be attributed to any one particular person. However, the praise or blame is usually drawn towards the director and in a few cases the screenwriter of the movie, as these are the two people who give direction to the project, overall.

And even though most of the filmmakers try to deflect the question or go defensive about their creative choices when questioned about their failures, they at times try to shift the blame to one of the other major collaborators of the movie, such as the cast.

This is definitely the case with the movies we will be discussing today, where the directors and writers very conveniently threw their cast members under the bus, citing reasons such as them delivering an underwhelming performance, failing to be a part of the promotions or even quitting the movie at the eleventh hour.

However, one of the skills a successful director should have is the ability to manage a dozen of egos of varying degree that are on the set, and manage the working methods of their cast to make sure they fall in line, so it is quite bizarre that the guy with the camera shouldn’t be the one actually responsible for the failure (or success).

Either way, the filmmakers that we’re about to discuss in this article weren’t exactly happy with their cast members and decided it was best to deflect a majority of the blame in their direction. Without further ado, let’s check out the list now.

 

Kevin Smith Blames Bruce Willis’s Grumpy Attitude – Cop Out

Kevin Smith is one of those directors who love to write their own movies, so that they can have complete creative control over the movie. This buddy cop flick, Cop Out is the only movie that he hasn’t written, and that shows.

As soon as people started panning his flick, Kevin went ahead and compared the response of the critics to “bullying a retarded kid.”

After a while, Smith tried to explain what really led to the movie performing so poorly on the box office, and he shifted most of the blame at Bruce Willis’s feet, saying that he felt his “soul-crushing” after working alongside the actor.

He further added, “It was difficult. I’ve never been involved in a situation like that where one component is not in the box at all…I mean, a lot of people are gonna be like, ‘Oh, you’re just trying to blame the movie on him.’ No, but I had no f**king help from this dude whatsoever.”

Some insider reports also pointed out that at the wrap party of Cop Out, Smith said: “I want to thank everyone who worked on the film, except for Bruce Willis, who is a f**king dick.”

Smith also pointed out that Willis did almost everything in his hand to make matters worse for the movie, as he refused to be a part of the press tours or sit for the promotional photos.

The only good thing about the movie was that it ended up as Smith’s all-time highest grosser, however, given that it couldn’t even double the $30 million budget, it is hardly anything worth cheering.

A recent report says that Smith has sorted out the differences with Willis now, so that is a good thing.

 

 

Roland Emmerich Blaming Will Smith for Picking Suicide SquadIndependence Day: Resurgence

The expectations were not really sky high when the announcement for Independence Day: Resurgence was made – it was already way too old for a sequel, and it was being made without the leading star of the first one, Will Smith. So, how awesome would it really be?

And in no time, everyone right from movie critics to fans started bashing Independence Day: Resurgence, which in all honesty, was nothing good at all except a few destruction moments and Jeff Goldblum quipping a few times. The movie came to the screens and went without a bang, earning somewhere close to only $400 million worldwide.

So, while Emmerich was on a press tour for his upcoming (and even worse movie) Midway, he was asked what went wrong with Resurgence, and he very conveniently shifted the entire blame to Will Smith, revealing that the star left the movie to work on Suicide Squad instead.

The director said, “I just wanted to make a movie exactly like the first, but then in the middle of production Will opted out because he wanted to do Suicide Squad. I should have stopped making the movie because we had a much better script. After I had to, really fast, cobble another script together. And I should have just said ‘no,’ because all of a sudden, I was making something I criticized myself, a sequel.”

Well, while we get it why Emmerich is so frustrated as his original script that involved Will Smith had to be thrown away, it is not a very good excuse why the alternate script turned out so poor as it could have been so much better.

Granted, the star presence of Will Smith would have made everything go up a notch, but a good script would have anyway made sure the movie does well, whether or not Will Smith decides to be a part of it.

 

 

Kevin Reynolds Blames Kevin Costner’s Inflated Ego – Waterworld

Waterworld, a $175 million blockbuster set in a post-apocalyptic world, is probably one of the biggest flops of all time. It isn’t honestly that terrible except that it was hugely over-budgeted and even though the makers were riding on a wave of hype created around the movie, it didn’t exactly break the box office and earned just shy of a $260 million mark, worldwide.

Kevin Costner did give his regular partner Kevin Reynolds a proper directing credit, but it is not exactly a secret that it was Costner who took over the production after Reynolds decided to leave, after he was fed up of Costner trying to force his ideas on almost every single scene in the movie.

And given that pretty much the same thing happened during the shooting of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves just a few years prior, it was honestly quite a surprise to see the two of them actually agreeing to work on this one together. It didn’t make sense at all!

Funnily enough, Reynolds later shared in an interview about his experience during the shooting of Waterworld, and he said, “In the future, Costner should only appear in pictures he directs himself. That way he can always be working with his favorite actor and his favorite director.” Ouch.

Clearly, Kevin Costner didn’t really take it personally, though, as the duo did team up again in the year 2012 for Hatfields & McCoys, a TV mini-series that won Costner an Emmy award for the lead actor while Reynolds ended up being nominated for best director.

Despite the many problems that the world is facing, another year has come and gone. But packed into those 365 days, we’ve grown a lot and have learned a lot of things. If you want to be stunning some people with some trivia or need to renew your faith in humanity, consider these facts we learned in 2019.

 

There Is Another Continent Located In The Mediterranean

Remember the lost continent of Greater Adria? This is a place that many people vacation year after year and we didn’t discover it until some research by Utrecht University uncovered it. It’s about the size of Greenland.

 

 

There Was A Penguin The Size Of A Human In New Zealand

While we think of penguins as the cute adorable waddling birds, one study conducted in April found there were some huge ones. During the research, scientists found the bones of a penguin in New Zealand that proved that a human-sized penguin existed. The scientists call them Crossvallia waiparensis, a species that lived about 60 million years ago.

 

 

Those Who Function On Less Sleep May Have A Gene Mutation

While studies firmly state we need between seven and nine hours of sleep, there are some people who can actually function outside of those parameters. One study uncovered that those who could pull that off actually have a mutation of the β1-adrenergic receptor. This receptor is used to ensure that the person can still function even when they sleep for less hours.

Popping A Bottle Of Champagne Is About As Shocking As The Shock Waves From Jets

Even though uncorking a champagne bottle has a safe strategy, the fact still remains that uncorking a champagne bottle can be quite shocking. According to a study, the supersonic waves released from uncorking it can produce Mach 1 level force. The same amount a jet can produce.
