I have nothing against people named Charles, Chuck, or Charlie. But when it comes to characters in movies, those named Charlie tend to be the worst. Don’t believe me, check out this list of the worst characters named Charlie.
5)Charlie Hinton (Daddy Day Care)
Oh look at me, my name is Charlie and I started a day care. Get over yourself. Nobody cares about your stupid movie or your stupid face. Go back to the playground and play on the see-saw all by yourself. Dummy.
4) Charlie Townsend (Charlie’s Angels)
What’s this guy’s deal? He just hangs around with his Angels and makes them do stuff for him. Does he do his own grocery shopping? I bet he has a crew of people to take care of that for him as well. What a hoser! That’s why he talks through that stupid speaker. Robot boy.
3) Charlie Bucket (Willy Wonka/Charlie and The Chocolate Factory)
This little brat. He wants chocolate so badly. Nobody cares that you like candy. You are the reason why creepy Uncle Joe is bed ridden. He doesn’t want to deal with your whining. And what kind of name is Bucket. It’s a stupid name, that’s what.
Wha wha wha…another cry baby. Your dad is Santa Claus, so calm down you little wimp. Go back to your room and pretend you have friends, because you don’t. Bernard doesn’t even like you because you are a wimp.
A whiney little jerk bag. You suck at hockey. You aren’t a leader. You are only on the team because your mom is boning the coach. You can’t skate and you are ugly. And stupid. And dumb. Nobody on the team likes you. Everyone knows you are the weakest link.

Animals are an important part of the human experience. Not only do they offer a cute sense of superiority, but they also do some practical and useful things as well. When it comes to movies, the friendly animal trope is often well received. And we aren’t talking The Animal or Ace Ventura here. Let’s discuss movies where an animal takes center stage.
A movie about a stupid whale. The kid is annoying. But the song is epic. A lot of people like this movie. I am not one of those people. But I do realize that it should be included for the important role this film played in the 90s.
4) Babe (1995)
A cute little piggy eventually goes to the city. I guess I could have included this or Charlotte’s Web. But in all honesty, I forgot about Charlotte’s Web until just now. So Babe wins.
3) Dunston Checks In (1996)
Should this be a future episode? I think so. Just read how IMDB describes this movie: A young boy befriends a larcenous orangutan in a luxury hotel. Now that is a plot you can hang your hat on. Plus it stars Jason Alexander. Not just features…he is first billed. Take that Shallow Hal!
2) Air Bud (1997)
Slam dunk. You can’t go wrong with an animal playing sports. That recipe has literally been repeated to infinity and beyond. Air Bud brings all the elements of a cute animal flick with a high octane sports movie. The rule book doesn’t say anything about dogs not being allowed to play.
1) Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993)
Featuring the voices of Michael J. Fox and Sally Field, Homeward Bound is an adventure film that flips the script in a lot of ways. By focusing on the animals, we get a different sense of dread and it creates a new sense of trouble that humans wouldn’t encounter. And by having it be live action, the audience is more invested than if this were a cartoon.

Much like smells, there are a lot of actors in the world. And a lot of them are named Steve. But we aren’t talking about Steve Burns or Steve Harwell. We are talking about the sensational Steves of the world. The succulent actors who embody everything that it means to be a Steve.
5) Steve Harvey
He might be well known nowadays for his talk show or his time on Family Feud. But you might remember him from his 90s sitcom The Steve Harvey Show. Not only is he a snappy dresser, he delivers a 1-2 punch like no other comedian.
4) Steve Carell
A skilled and well-versed actor. Carell has brought countless people joy and entertainment for his work on The Office. Afterwards, he pieced together a solid career in films. There is something about his ability to play a lovable moron that makes him truly memorable.
3) Steve Buscemi
Despite him dying in every movie he appears, Buscemi is something of a rarity. He brings the seasoning on to a delicious pizza. With a career that has sprawled decades, Buscemi has delivered performances that are both invigorating and unhinged.
2) Steve Martin
A comedian of vast proportions. His skills range from fatherly to subversive. This white-haired muchacho is capable of bringing down the house with his neurotic performances. If you don’t believe me, check out his performance in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
1) Steve Zahn
The ultimate Steve. From eating La-zahn-gna to celebrating Zahn-ukkah, this Steve has paved a mustached path through comedy, drama, thriller, and horror. He has played a lovable loser and a love interest. He has been a hero, a rocker, and a Neil Diamond enthusiast. He is the reason this list exists. The end.
