Have you ever gone on a long car ride with a group of friends, only to have one of them complain the whole time about the length of the trip? Well, imagine that, but over the course of a trilogy of three-hour movies, and you;ll understand why Samwise Gamgee makes this list. Throughout the Lord of the Rings films, Gamgee is like a big fat anchor weighing Frodo down and testing our patience.

When not complaining about being hungry, Gamgee is reminiscing about his time on the Shire or going on faux-philosophical rants about his place in the world. How Frodo had the self-control not to pop that gold ring on his finger and lace chubby right in the chops is beyond us.
