When the first 'Pirates of the Caribbean' was announced in 2002, we were skeptical at the notion of a movie based on a theme park ride. Three sequels and several billion dollars later, we admit we were wrong.

With yesterday's announcement of a Matterhorn film (based on the popular Disneyland coaster), and with the upcoming 'Haunted Mansion' and 'Magic Kingdom' now in production, it would appear this "look to theme parks for movie inspiration" thing is becoming a trend.

Before long, Hollywood will be pitching amusement parks to build rides based on movies. While King's Dominion's the Hurler, based on 'Wayne's World,' has already been done, we'd like to head the studio bigwigs off at the pass before they get too crazy.

Therefore, we present to you: Movies That Would Make the Worst Theme Park Rides.
