Probably on top of the list for me would be nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,now there was someone to get really worked up about.
Also i have to say Sean Astin in a certain tv-adaptation annoyed me no end,simply because he was just too different from my imagined Twoflower. (His 'actingabilities' might have had something to do with it,David Jason as Rincewind wasn't exactly what i envisioned either,but he at least is such a good actor i could quickly forgive that.) In the same category any character played by Angela Lansbury automatically becomes extremely annoying. For a start Jessica Fletcher has got to be the most annying womancharacter on television surely?

I can't think of any movie characters offhand, but there's quite a few literary and television ones that I'd like to throttle. Harold Skimpole from Bleak House is one. William Dorrit and his daughter Fanny from Little Dorrit are more. So too is the shrill, annoying, and extremely self-centred (despite her claiming otherwise) Mrs Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. And I suppose Joffrey Baratheon from A Song of Ice and Fire (or Game of Thrones, if you're only familiar with the TV series).
Have you seen the size of human brains? They're hilarious!
Jar Jar was in it to appeal to the kids. But the grown-up fans forget that they saw it when they were kids. Actually, Leia was a bit annoying at first, she could have been more polite!
I don't like it when a male lead has a really unsupportive wife, who doesn't believe her husband to the point where she will even leave him to back to her mother's. If Mr Dotsie told me God had told him to build an Ark, I'd put the kettle on immediately!
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
