Worst Movie Fights

5. The fights required by the plot, in which the hero gets whupped, by a bully or by an expert or with the help of kryptonite: Karate Kid, Kickass, Defendor, Superman, and a zillion others. The fight might be well-done, but ho hum, don’t drag it out and let’s move on.

4. The fight in a particular movie or TV show, I can’t remember which, where the guy sound angry and intimidating but then, when hostilities start, paws at the other guy’s chest, sinks to his knees, paws at the other guy’s knees, and then curls up whimpering. His wife looks on without expression and later, when he gets up, the two of them go on about their business.

  3. I submit the final scene (real animals vs. people-in-animal-costumes) in Furry Vengeance. Actually, I submit the entire movie which is really one big fight between the haggard Brendan Frasier and the forest creatures. A friend of mine just sent me this link which I believe corroborates my claims:
