Top 10 Bad Boyfriends in Movies

Forgot about hunks, dreamboats and knights in shining armor, these dudes are straight up horrible. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Bad Boyfriends in Movies.

For this list, we’ll be looking at cinematic boyfriends who wronged their lady at one point or another. Married men will have to wait for their own list.

#10: James ‘Jimmy’ Angelov
“Practical Magic” (1998)

This film centers on Sally and Gillian, two witches cursed to watch the men who love them die untimely deaths. It also gave the world one hell of a bad boyfriend. Jimmy is an abusive serial killer with a penchant for drinking, smoking, and generally being an ass. The worst part about this boyfriend is that he is near impossible to get rid of… even for a couple of witches! Jimmy may be loaded with bad boy swagger, but the allure quickly begins to fade once he reveals his true self to Gillian. You know you’re a horrible person when your witch girlfriend needs to kill you multiple times.

#9: Andy
“Wet Hot American Summer” (2001)
Most of the boyfriends on this list invoke rage, hatred, and occasionally violence, but not Andy. As a counselor at Camp Firewood, he lackadaisically goes about his duties while openly cheating on his girlfriend, Katie. It’s hard to hate Andy because of how hilarious he is, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is a horrible boyfriend. From his constant womanizing to the way he softens up the moment so he can get in a girl’s pants, Andy is a true dirt bag. Oh, and did we mention that he straight up throws a kid out of a moving car to keep him quiet? Yeah, not exactly husband material.

#8: Daniel Cleaver
“Bridget Jones's Diary” (2001)
After overhearing some nasty remarks about her lifestyle, Bridget Jones starts a diary with the intention of improving herself and finding love. The man who quickly draws her attention is her boss, Daniel. If only she knew his true character beforehand though. What makes Daniel a bad boyfriend is his uncontrollable womanizing. He simply can’t help but chase every woman he sees. His arrogant, misogynistic nature aside, Daniel is also a liar and a bad friend – having slept with his best friend’s wife, leading to the demise of their relationship. We admire Bridget’s resolve, but shake our heads at her romantic decisions.

#7: Glenn Guglia
“The Wedding Singer” (1998)
Wedding singer Robbie Hart thinks he’s finally found the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately for him, she is engaged to one of the worst boyfriends in cinematic history: Glen Guglia. Glenn is a douche. There, we said it. Sure, he’s handsome and drives a nice car, but that doesn’t make up for the fact that he is a lying, manipulating cheater who doesn’t deserve his girlfriend, Julia. The only thing he ever has on his mind is sex, and it ultimately leads to his demise… metaphorically speaking.

#6: Jim
“Edward Scissorhands” (1990)
Despite his intimidating appearance, Edward Scissorhands is sweet, innocent, and always tries to do the right thing. His romantic rival, Jim, is anything but. He is a greasy haired jock who uses fear and intimidation to bend others to his will. The worst part about Jim is his reluctance to give Edward a chance. He breaks the golden rule of not judging a book by its cover, choosing instead to manipulate Edward in an attempt to get him locked up by the police. However, what really makes Jim a bad boyfriend is the violent, jealous rage he flies into whenever his girlfriend Kim shows any affection towards Edward. Ultimately, Jim gets what’s coming to him.

#5: Patrick ‘Pat’ Healy
“There's Something About Mary” (1998)
What’s the word we’re looking for here? Slimy? Yeah, slimy. Pat Healy is one slimy character. Years after an embarrassing incident cut his prom night short, Ted Stroehmann hires a private detective to track down his date, Mary. Unfortunately for Ted, that detective is Pat Healy. Within moments of seeing her, Pat too falls for Mary. What follows is a series of dastardly ploys put on by the lying detective in an attempt to win her heart. From his creepy thin mustache to his misguided mental state, Pat Healy is a weirdo inside and out.

#4: Sack Lodge
“Wedding Crashers” (2005)
It’s incredible to think that Bradley Cooper is now one of the most beloved and sought-after actors in Hollywood. It wasn’t too long ago that he played the jerky fiancé in this classic comedy. Whether Sack is taking touch football way too seriously, shooting men with a rifle, or generally treating his fiancée Claire like garbage, he is one seriously messed up boyfriend. It was thus all the more satisfying to see him crouched over a toilet seat in agony after being poisoned by his romantic rival, John, and getting punched out my John’s best friend, Jeremy.

#3: Jason ‘J.D.’ Dean
“Heathers” (1988)
Every high school has that one group of girls. You know the ones: popular, attractive, with amazing fashion senses. Well in this cult classic, Veronica and her rebellious new boyfriend, J.D., get sick and tired of their school’s clique and decide to do something about it. However, his idea of killing them turns out to be a little too much for her to handle. J.D. ends up being just a little bit of a… what’s the word… murderous psychopath? He may come off all cool and “laissez-faire,” but in reality, J.D. is straight up crazy. Veronica might want to choose a little more wisely next time she’s looking for a boyfriend.

#2: David McCall
“Fear” (1996)
In the pantheon of bad boyfriends, this one is up there with the worst of them. After meeting Nicole at a rave, David McCall becomes dangerously obsessed with her. While they date at first, David’s increasingly horrifying behavior leads her to dump him… with deadly consequences. Mark Wahlberg goes full on psycho for this film. From beheading Nicole’s dog, to murdering one of her friends, David is what you would call “troubled.” He is mentally deranged, violent, obsessive, and lacking any sort of moral backbone. If that doesn’t constitute a bad boyfriend, we don’t know what does.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Edward Cullen
“Twilight” (2008)

Warner Huntington III
“Legally Blonde” (2001)

Gideon Gordon Graves
“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” (2010)

#1: Caledon Nathan ‘Cal’ Hockley
“Titanic” (1997)
When Cal boarded the Titanic, his life was looking pretty good. He was rich, handsome, and all set to marry the beautiful Rose. Unfortunately for him, Jack Dawson had other plans. The evilness of a particular bad boyfriend is usually reflected in the complete opposite nature of his competition. We know Cal is bad because Jack is so darn good. When Rose is within ten feet of her fiancé, it’s an absolute cringe-fest. He is an arrogant snob who undermines anyone whom he deems inferior to himself. The breaking point for this bad boyfriend is when he tries to shoot Jack as he flees with Rose. That’s just a big no-no.
