Inspector Gadget (1999)
Yet another beloved cartoon character suffering at the hands of a '90s adaptation. This time, Matthew Broderick tried unsuccessfully to bring an over-the-top cartoon character into real life and have it not look utterly ridiculous. The problem here may have also been the casting of (and revealing of) Gadget's arch nemesis Dr. Claw, whom we had only heard in the past. That air of mystery made him so much more menacing.
