It turns out Ira had a pretty good reason to be whiny. His jackass friends kidnapped a mob boss and brought him into his parents house. But there’s no excuse for being AS whiny as Ira was. He complained about drinking his parents liquor, guests taking their shoes off, and broken lamps when he should have been a little more concerned about how to keep Charlie Barret alive.

While Ed Norton’s character in Fight Club was meant to serve as a symbol of all the decadence and candy-ass-ed-ness that men have succumbed to, it’s still harrowing to see him bitch about so many things. Sure, he toughens up by the end of the movie. I mean, whiny people don’t shoot themselves in the head. Well, I guess they do when they’re suicidal, but Jack shot himself in the head for an altogether different reason, which showed how badass you can become if you just hit bottom and listen to your id.
Whiniest Line: Look, nobody takes this more seriously than me. That condo was my life, okay? I loved every stick of furniture in that place. That was not just a bunch of stuff that got destroyed, it was ME!
The archetype for the wet blanket significant other in film, Adrian was the nagging presence that made our skin crawl when we should have been inspired. Always second-guessing the champ, it was a wonder that he ever got anything done.

Whiniest Line: Can I talk to you? I wanna ask you something important, and I want you to tell me the truth.
