[[folder:Multiple Creators Disowning a Work]]
* ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'', to the point that after so many years, almost everyone involved is ''still'' ashamed when it's mentioned.
** The experience was so horrible for Creator/DavidFincher that he refuses to talk about it to this day, and has rejected several attempts to speak on-record for documentaries. His only comment since then has been "No one hated (the film) more than me. To this day, no one hates it more than me."
** Producer David Giler had harsh words for the film in the DVD documentary "Wreckage and Rage", claiming that it wasn't that scary at all and that he regrets his participation. Notably, he attempted to leave the production at one point, but was forced back by a clause in Creator/SigourneyWeaver's contract. He and co-producer Walter Hill later abandoned Fincher midway through production and forced him to rewrite the script on the fly.
** Creator/LanceHenriksen has gone on record as saying, "'''FUCK''' ''Film/{{Alien 3}}''!!!"
** Elliot Goldenthal admitted that the score wasn't his best work, stating that he only had a week-and-a-half to compose the score due to the TroubledProduction and had to rush through it without thinking of the quality.
* ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'':
** David Cross, who plays the main antagonist in the films, openly regrets his work on the third film ''Chipwrecked'', recalling it to have been a terribly "unpleasant experience" and one of the worst outings of his career.
** Cameron Richardson, who played the love interest Claire in the first film, refused to do the sequels because she disliked the first movie.
* ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'':
** Creator/GeorgeClooney, Chris O'Donnell, Creator/JoelSchumacher, and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger have all expressed disappointment in the film.
** Clooney even said in interviews that if anyone approaches him and says they saw the movie at a cinema, he will refund their ticket price from his own pocket. He's also said that he keeps a giant framed portrait of himself in the Batsuit in his house as a constant reminder not to let hubris and ego get the better of him.
** Joel Schumacher provided the DVD Commentary for the film. There's an awful lot of pauses and he ends the commentary 5 minutes before the credits roll. He sounds really embarrassed by this film.
* ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'':
** Creator/ForestWhitaker has publicly apologized for starring in the film. Then again, Creator/JohnTravolta was probably the only one who didn't regret starring in it.
** Barry Pepper, who played Johnny, said that if he knew he'd win a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor, he would've accepted it in person.
** One of the two credited screenwriters has among other things, written an [[http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/battlefield-earth-scripter-pens-apology/ apology letter]] that ends with this:
--> Now, looking back at the movie with fresh eyes, I cant help but be strangely proud of it. Because out of all the sucky movies, [[MedalOfDishonor mine is the suckiest]]. In the end, did Scientology get me laid? What do you think? No way do you get any action by boldly going up to a woman and proclaiming, I wrote Battlefield Earth!” If anything, Im trying to figure out a way to bottle it and use it as birth control. Ill make a mint!
* ''Film/BluesBrothers2000'': Creator/JohnLandis and Creator/DanAykroyd were unhappy with the changes Universal forced them to make on the film, and almost quit the project because of it.
* ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'':
** Creator/ChevyChase is ashamed of his participation in ''Film/CaddyshackII'', which he only took part in as Warner Brothers had pressured him and the other actors of the first movie into making a sequel. None of the others bowed to the pressure though, and Warner Brothers attempted to '''sue''' Rodney Dangerfield for refusing to participate after citing a lack of confidence in the script. When asked about it in a interview with David Letterman, his response was an apathetic "Yeah, Yeah I think I'm in that." Even looking at his role in the film, he seems disinterested in being there.
** Creator/HaroldRamis (who wrote and produced the original film) also hated the sequel; once again, he only participated after Warner Brothers continued to put pressure on him.
* Both director Tinto Brass and writer turned politician Creator/GoreVidal would like to forget about the horror that was ''Film/{{Caligula}}'' and almost was ''Gore Vidal's Caligula''. In fact, pretty much anyone who was involved with that production (except Creator/HelenMirren and ''Penthouse'' publisher and ''Caligula'' producer [[http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2005/02/guccione200502?currentPage=all Bob Guccione]]) would like to forget all about it.
* ''Franchise/ChildrenOfTheCorn'':
** Creator/CharlizeTheron has a sequel on her CV (''Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIIIUrbanHarvest''). Do you even have to ask what she thinks of it?
** As noted in her own entry, Creator/NaomiWatts has referred to ''Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIVTheGathering'' as a "piece of shit".
** Creator/EvaMendes' first role was in [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCornVFieldsOfTerror the fifth movie]]. She admits it's shameful.
* ''The Clan of the Cave Bear'':
** Creator/DarylHannah has said she is very glad that the low box office returns for the film meant adaptations of Jean M. Auel's other books about Ayla were out of the question.
** If the box office hadn't sealed the fate of future movies, the fact that Auel (who was a consultant on the film and hated the finished result) sued the filmmakers and ''[[CreatorBacklash bought back the movie rights to the books]]'' did.
* ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'': Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton have both stated in interviews that they didn't like it, the latter so much that she refused to work on ''Film/WrathOfTheTitans''.
* Music/VanillaIce doesn't care for ''Film/CoolAsIce''. Pretty much everyone involved, up to and including the director, has expressed regret over this film.
* Both Creator/KevinSmith and Creator/BruceWillis hate ''Film/CopOut''. Ironically, both of them fought on the set and have hated each other ever since! What didn't help matters is that Bruce refused to promote the movie!
* Creator/HarryShearer and Creator/MichaelMcKean are both ashamed of a low-budget sketch film called ''CrackingUp'' they did back in the 70's.
* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'':
** Creator/StanLee has disowned the film, despite the fact that he only had a [[CreatorCameo cameo]] in it.
** As pointed out in his own entry, Creator/BenAffleck calls it the one movie he actually regrets (largely because he loves the original comics and is disappointed it turned out the way it did).
** Steven Wright also hated the film; it would be six years before he would act again.
* Pretty much all of the main cast of ''Film/DeckTheHalls'', according to supporting actor Gillian Vigman. Creator/KristinChenoweth was still coping with her split from Creator/AaronSorkin, Creator/DannyDeVito flew in to film his scenes rather than interact with anyone, and Creator/MatthewBroderick could be found on set shaking his head in disbelief, repeatedly stating "I've hit rock bottom."
* ''Don's Plum'': Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Creator/TobeyMaguire sued to prevent the release of the film and won a partial success; the film can't be shown commercially in the United States or Canada.
* Stars Creator/DanielCraig and Creator/RachelWeisz, and director Jim Sheridan, disowned the finished product of ''Film/DreamHouse'', with none of them going out to promote the film after Sheridan clashed with the film's executive producer James G. Robinson throughout the production.
* Both Creator/JackBlack and Creator/BenStiller have both publicly apologized for starring in ''Film/{{Envy}}''.
* ''Film/FantasticFour2015'':
** Creator/JoshTrank denounced the film before it even came out, saying his vision was ruined due to studio interference.
** Creator/MichaelBJordan has also said that the film was not as good as he hoped it would be. ** Creator/KateMara stated that she hasn't even seen the final product, and that "nobody saw it" while doing press interviews promoting ''Film/TheMartian''.
** Toby Kebbel (Doctor Doom) stated that he understood how the fans felt, and wondered if the poor reception hurt his career.
** ''Creator/MarvelComics'' disowned the movie, putting up '''''Film/HowardTheDuck''''' on its website and not this movie. They wanted nothing to do with the movie that they went so far as to ''cancel the comic'' (granted, for story reasons).
* Both Creator/GingerRogers and Creator/CarolChanning disliked ''Film/TheFirstTravelingSaleslady'', saying it was "a terrible picture". They also jokingly referred to it as "death of a sales lady".
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'':
** Creator/ChristopherEccleston and Creator/SiennaMiller don't look back fondly on the film, to the point that Eccleston refused to return for the sequel.
** Neither does Creator/ChanningTatum, though he does admit that it wasn't as horrible as it could have been, and that its success at the box office helped his career. The truly sad part was [[PromotedFanboy that he was a fan of the cartoon growing up]]. He chalks it up to IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney:
-->Look, Ill be honest. I f**king hate that movie. I hate that movie. I was pushed into doing that movie. From ''Film/CoachCarter'', they signed me to a three-picture deal [] They give you the contract and they go, Three-picture deal, here you go. And as a young [actor], youre like, Oh my god, that sounds amazing, Im doing that!
* ''Film/Godzilla1998'':
** Creator/RolandEmmerich and Creator/DeanDevlin look back at the film with a great deal of regret, with them citing that their lack of research, the short time in which the film had to be completed in, and ExecutiveMeddling (the studio's refusal to test-screen it) as factors that may have negatively affected the quality of the final product.
** Creator/MatthewBroderick, Creator/JeanReno and Creator/HankAzaria don't like the film very much either.
* Bee Vang and many of the other Asian actors in ''Film/GranTorino'' are ashamed of the movie, as they felt it was racist. Bee even ended up making [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMaIOFMg64M a spoof of the movie's more racist elements]].
* Creator/SethRogen called ''Film/TheGreenHornet'' a nightmare. The film's producer Neal H. Moritz and director Creator/MichelGondry didn't like it either.
* ''Film/HowardTheDuck'': Creator/GeorgeLucas publically disowned it, as did Creator/JohnBarry and just about everyone that worked on it, save for Lea Thompson.
* Both Creator/JuliaRoberts and Nick Nolte have revealed their hatred for working on ''I Love Trouble'', calling it the worst of their careers. Roberts also said that Nolte was the worst actor she had ever worked with.
* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'':
** Creator/StevenSpielberg hated making the film, saying that his marriage to Kate Capshaw was the only good thing he got out of it.
** Capshaw, an outspoken feminist, is ashamed of her role as [[DamselScrappy Willie]] as well.
* ''Film/JawsTheRevenge'':
** Creator/MichaelCaine claims that he has never seen the film, and by all accounts it was terrible; but he adds that he has seen [[MoneyDearBoy the house the film paid for, and thought it was terrific.]] He also regrets being in the Bahamas shooting it instead of picking up his Oscar for ''Film/HannahAndHerSisters''.
** MCA/Universal boss Sid Sheinberg's wife Lorraine Gary, who played Ellen Brody, has expressed regrets for reprising her role.
** It also became a classic example of instant OldShame for Sheinberg and his studio, who allowed Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis to take a [[TakeThat jab at it]] in the second ''Back To The Future'' film.
* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'': Music/DavidBowie wasn't too big a fan, even getting uncomfortable when his children watched it. Co-star Creator/JenniferConnelly, who has similar sentiments, gets embarrassed when ''her'' children are watching the film.
* ''Film/TheLastAirbender'':
** Aasif Mandvi regrets taking part in the film, and actually mocks the film from time to time on ''Series/TheDailyShow''.
** Dev Patel didn't care for the film either nor did one of the show's creators, Bryan Konietzko.
* ''Film/LastTangoInParis'': Both Creator/MarlonBrando and Maria Schneider admitted that they felt '''raped''' by the film, and refused to speak with director Creator/BernardoBertolucci ever again.
* ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise'':
** Creator/BrentSpiner sarcastically called it a "classic" on Twitter.
** Dino Stamtopolous, who helped produce the film, also regrets making it and blames Creator/AdamSandler for the final product.
* Natalie Wood hated ''Film/{{Meteor}}'', along with most of the cast involved with the film.
* Yeardley Smith is still extremely embarrassed by ''Film/MaximumOverdrive''. So is Creator/StephenKing, who called the film a "moron movie." Thus far, it has remained his only attempt at directing.
* ''[[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife The Meaning Of Life]]'':
** Creator/JohnCleese wasn't pleased with, stating that "I always regarded that entire film as a bit of a cockup."
** The other Pythons are not too happy about it either. Terry Jones has said that the movie was one rewrite from being good, but by that point, everyone, Cleese in particular, just wanted to move on.
* ''Film/{{Movie 43}}'':
** According to Peter Farrelly, most of the cast tried to get out of the production once they realized what they were getting themselves into..
** Creator/HughJackman, in an "[[https://screen.yahoo.com/hugh-jackman-interviews-himself-future-140216700.html interview with his past self]]":
-->'''1999 Jackman''': Is there an embarrassing movie I should avoid?\\
'''2014 Jackman''': When they come to you with a movie where you have testicles around your neck, with an ensemble cast from the funniest movies around, don't believe them. You might keep the testicles - they are funny to show in parties - but pass on the movie!
* ''Film/MrWoodcock'':
** Creator/SeannWilliamScott and Creator/BillyBobThornton were both disdainful about their time making the film.
** Director Craig Gillespie also hated the end result, due to last-minute reshoots done with another director (said director went uncredited, leaving Gillespie to take the blame).
* Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, and Richard D. Zanuck have all confessed that they didn't care for ''Neighbors'', mostly due to its post-production problems.
* What do Creator/HarlanEllison and Tony Bennett have in common? [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Well, yes,]] but more to the point they both would rather not talk about ''Film/TheOscar'' (the former's only movie credit, the latter's only movie as an actor).
* ''Private Resort'' (1985): Rob Morrow and Creator/JohnnyDepp apparently swore a pact to eradicate every copy of the film from the face of the planet. Given that it was given a DVD release, it's clear that they have not yet succeeded in their quest.
* Robin Askwith and Carol Drinkwater were both ashamed to be in ''Film/QueenKong''.
* Both Creator/ChrisColumbus and Creator/DarylHannah have less than warm feelings about 1984's ''Reckless'' (which he wrote and she starred in).
* ''Film/Robocop3'': Creator/NancyAllen and Fred Dekker [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehdg95fdR2g aren't]] [[http://www.robocoparchive.com/archive/movie-robocop3-dekker.htm fond]] of the film. Allen didn't want to do the movie in the first place and only did it for the fans, and even agreed with them that the move to PG-13 and going ahead without waiting for Creator/PeterWeller to come back were mistakes. While he doesn't regret the ''process'' of making it, Dekker ''does'' regret the final product, both as a CreatorKiller, and because he wished he had more money and also agrees that the move to PG-13 was a mistake.
* ''Film/ScoobyDoo'':
** Creator/SarahMichelleGellar has stated in an interview that this was the one movie she would never let her kids watch. (Among other things, Gellar hated wearing Daphne's trademark go-go boots.)
** Freddie Prinze Jr (Fred) also doesn't think much fondly of the film. He said that he hated wearing Fred's trademark ascot. Prinze also had to shave his head after filming because the blonde dye ruined his hair.
* ''Shadow Conspiracy'': Linda Hamilton said in an interview that she thought her work in the film was "mediocre as hell", but admits that the movie was "really bad, really bad". Creator/CharlieSheen also hates the movie as well.
* ''Film/ShallowHal'' is also an old shame for both Creator/GwynethPaltrow (who stated that she didn't care for it) and Jack Black. He said that he signed onto it because he wanted to make a film with the Farrelly Brothers but it wasn't what he expected it to be, which made him feel like he sold out.
* Most of the people who worked on ''Film/{{Skidoo}}'' hated it. Creator/OttoPreminger and his family even refused to release it after its theatrical run.
* ''Film/SonOfTheMask'':
** Jamie Kennedy has admitted that he was personally affected by the negative critical response to the film, lamenting an apparent lack of control in any of the aspects regarding the film or his own involvement in it.
** Creator/KalPenn called it a terrible movie while promoting ''Film/TheNamesake''. It didn't help that they forced him to do an Indian accent.
* ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'':
** As stated in his own entry, Creator/TomHardy has repeatedly said that the film (and more specifically, the fact that it was a critical and commercial flop) was the worst thing that ever happened to him, and nearly killed his career before it got off the ground. To this day, he still refuses to talk about ''Nemesis'' in any significant detail.
** The entire [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]] cast, especially Gates [=McFadden=], Marina Sirtis, and Creator/LeVarBurton (who'd been turned down as its director), also spoken negatively about the film. Though Sirtis also said that ''Nemesis'' wasn't as bad as ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'', claiming she fell asleep during its premiere.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** Jake Lloyd isn't fond of his role as Anakin Skywalker in ''[[Film/StarWarsThePhantomMenace Episode I: The Phantom Menace]]'', in no small part due to it [[NeverLiveItDown being the reason he was bullied throughout middle school and high school.]] He even burned all of his ''Franchise/StarWars'' memorabilia and did not watch a single ''Star Wars'' film again for some time, stating it was too creepy to watch them again. However, a later interview between him and a ''Star Wars'' fan site has shown him to have mellowed out since and has confirmed that he does not hate the franchise after all that. Terence Stamp didn't like working on the film either.
** ''Everyone'' involved with ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' feels this way about it, and as a result it only aired once, on TV, and hasn't seen the light of day since (not counting the [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes tapes]], mind you). Creator/HarrisonFord will completely deny the TV special's existence if you let him (which he infamously tried to do on [[http://www.dump.com/conanford/ The Conan O'Brien Show]]), and Creator/GeorgeLucas has gone on record claiming if he had the time and resources he would hunt down and destroy every last copy. Anthony Daniels and Carrie Fisher have also mocked it, with the latter claiming to use her copy to drive away party guests when the night's done. If you're smart, you won't even [[BerserkButton mention]] it to Creator/GeorgeLucas, [[MisBlamed even though he wasn't directly involved in it]].[[note]]Though it should be noted there are two aversions. Lev Mailer, who played the imperial officer hassling the store owner, is quite proud of his part and admits to have enjoyed the experience. Creator/BeaArthur, who played Creator/BeaArthur, went on record saying she had a wonderful time even though all she remembered was "singing to a bunch of people with funny heads".[[/note]]
* ''Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace'':
** Creator/ChristopherReeve was deeply ashamed of his last outing as the Man of Steel. He declared the film to be "terrible" on the eve of its release, citing a haphazard scriptwriting process and the poor quality of the film's special effects.
** Co-star Jon Cryer also hated the film, going so far as to deem the film ''unfinished'' as a result of its ultra-low budget.
* ''Film/SuperMarioBros'':
** Whenever anyone asked Creator/BobHoskins what his biggest regret about his film career was, he replied "''Film/SuperMarioBros''" without hesitation. He was quoted as saying the production "was a hellish nightmare" and the ControlFreak directors were "arrogant and fuckin' idiots".
** Creator/JohnLeguizamo wasn't fond of the movie either. He also wasn't fond of ''The Pest''. In fact, if you read his book, "Pimps, Ho's, Playa Hatas, and the Rest of my Hollywood Friends'', there's a lot of movies he's not proud of!
** That Creator/DennisHopper (who admitted [[MoneyDearBoy the paycheck]] was his only motivation) also had bad things to say about the film, its [[PrimaDonnaDirector directors]] (whose careers [[CreatorKiller went down the pipes)]] and the TroubledProduction, is not surprising.
** And on top of that, Nintendo was upset by the final version of the film, which was one of the biggest bombs of 1993, and instituted a policy that barred any more theatrical adaptations of their properties outside of ''Pokemon'', which they supervised; this actually stomped a move from the film's distributor to introduce Nintendo into their world.
* This is reportedly the case for Creator/MatthewMcConaughey and Creator/ReneeZellweger in ''Film/TexasChainsawMassacreTheNextGeneration''. They were both struggling actors at the time and needed the cash, but [=McConaughey=] was reportedly so embarrassed at having appeared in the film he attempted to block its release.
* ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'':
** After the overwhelmingly negative reception of the film, director Creator/MichaelBay himself publicly apologized for it, admitting it was not his best work and even calling it "crap". He has expressed disappointment that he didn't have more time to put together a better movie in the aftermath of the Writers' Guild Strike of 2007-2008.
** Writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci also expressed regret in making the film as well as in the creation of the universally hated Autobot duo Skids and Mudflap.
** Creator/ShiaLaBeouf also has gone on to state that he was "unimpressed" with the movie.
** Megan Fox also didn't like the movie. Not to mention her feud with Michael Bay during filming.
** Hugo Weaving admits that he doesn't care for the whole franchise and pretty much phones in his performance whenever he does any of the movies.
* Pretty much most of the actors who did ''Film/{{Troll 2}}'' said that they were embarrassed by the movie when they first saw it yet have gotten over it as the years have gone by due to the cult following it's received. The only people who seem to always be proud of the movie are director Claudio Fragasso, his wife (who co-wrote the movie), and Margo Prey, who played the mom. Also Robert Ormsby, who played the Grandpa, said he likes bad movies so he was proud to see it turned out so bad.
* ''Film/WildWildWest'':
** In a 2009 interview, Creator/WillSmith apologized to Robert Conrad for making it.
** Creator/BarrySonnenfeld, Creator/KevinKline, Creator/SalmaHayek, and even the majority of people at Creator/WarnerBrothers regret doing the film as well. Hayek, in particular, felt she was being underused and Kline felt he was too good of an actor to make the movie.
* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'':
** Creator/RyanReynolds has stated that he's not a fan of the film, despite probably being the [[OneSceneWonder best thing about it]]. While doing early promotion for ''Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}'', he made sure to distance it from the ''Wolverine'' prequel and reiterate that the new film is a complete ContinuityReboot.
** Creator/HughJackman - isn't proud of the film either, as he felt it did little justice to his character despite the high praise he received for his performance in an otherwise underwhelming movie; he helped make up for it with ''Film/TheWolverine''.
