Ever had an epically bad day? Tripped down the stairs, only to then slip on a banana skin which sent you skidding through the open door into the pond? No? Luckily, not many people have. However, live in the world of Hollywood, and these will happen day in, day out. Here’s some of the worst:
1. Groundhog Day
February 2nd is the day that Punxsutawney Phil, a groundhog, predicts when Spring will arrive. However, in the world of Hollywood, Groundhog Day is never ending for weatherman Phil. Starting off with “I Got You Babe” by Sonny & Cher, it never gets any better. No wonder Phil spent his day getting drunk, driving recklessly, getting thrown in jail and even kidnapping Punxsutawney Phil, and driving him off the edge of a cliff!
2. Independence Day
July 4th is a massive day of celebration in America as it marks the day the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. However, in the world of Hollywood, it is the day that aliens came down from outer space and blew up the White House! Not a good day for America or the rest of mankind really!
3. Friday the 13th
Everyone seems to be slightly superstitious when it comes to Friday the 13th, even more so when a guy in a hockey mask comes into the equation. Wielding a machete and killing any teenager who does anything he considers to be morally wrong at the lake where he supposedly drowned when he was younger, Jason Voorhees takes an already questionable date and makes it awful.
4. The Day After Tomorrow
No, I don’t mean Friday – even if you do have thatessay/meeting with the big boss to deal with! I mean the 2004 movie where Dennis Quaid treks across America to save his son (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is trapped in New York, from the brink of a new ice age. De-icing you car doesn’t feel so bad now does it?
5. 127 Hours
OK, this isn’t one day but five. But it’s safe to say that the last day is the worst. As if it’s not bad enough falling in a canyon and getting your arm stuck beneath a boulder, imagine having to cut off said arm with a dull pocketknife. For one man this wasn’t just a story but a real experience. Now that’s one hell of a bad day.
