Can One Bad Shot Ruin a Movie?

I though Chance walking out on water at the end was perfect. The man was rather not human thru the whole movie the way people reacted around the simple gardener...

Hmm there are many movies that have off moments but it is hard to kill a movie with one bad shot. In Falling Down I could have done without the Military Surplus scene but still developing the character I guess.

I'm confused on how Neo flying in the Matrix could ruin anything. It was essential to show just how much he had freed his mind and was able to control the matrix around him. It was pivotal for the story, not bad at all.

Killed it for my dad anyway. I think mainly because it looked really silly. :)

Well that's just bad effects. I didn't think it was too terrible. My dad didn't even understand the film. He had to watch it a couple times before he got it :)
