Ranker's 15 Great Characters Who Totally Save So-So Movies

"Some movies are mediocre (or worse) the whole way through. We've all had that experience of seeing a film and feeling as though it had no redeeming qualities. It's a totally understandable reaction to wish there was that something - anything - worthy of your attention. Something to cut through the boredom. On those lucky occasions, a so-so movie will, in fact, be enlivened by a great character. Even if the story is dull, the pace is slow, and the themes are predictable, you can at least take some pleasure in that one special character who comes in and elevates everything else. What allows a character to do this? It can be a cleverly conceived figure, a bold performance from the actor, or a combination of both. Whatever the case, viewers are undoubtedly grateful when there's at least one bright spot in a movie that's otherwise humdrum. Below are just a few notable examples where that happened. Which of these great characters is the biggest MVP of a bad or average film?" - ranker.com
