About This Quiz

It's the bad-boy syndrome. You know they are bad, but they have undeniable charisma that makes you root for them to win in the end. Or they are characters you simply love to hate, with a performance that is so gut-wrenchingly real that their cruelty is almost understandable.  Whether it's Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in the "American Psycho" or Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street", these charismatic, good-for-nothings are absolutely great to watch. And like Kevin Spacey as Verbal in "The Usual Suspects", you appreciate how cunning these characters are in the end.

Having a flawed hero can make a movie more interesting, since the protagonist lacks conventional heroic qualities such as pureness of heart and things like, well ... ethics. Many times the anti-hero becomes the embodiment of social criticism. Take Michael Douglas' character in "Falling Down," for example. This divorced, unemployed, middle-aged man went into a rage for a good reason ... although he took it too far, Uzi and all. Even "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" gave a voice to those who think rules shouldn't necessarily ALWAYS be followed. So sit back, grab your popcorn and recall all the bad boys of this genre. You got this.
