M. Night Shyamalan’s 2008 eco-thriller ‘The Happening’ is agreed by many as being an awful movie.

The plot revolves around a mysterious neurotoxin that causes any person coming into contact with it to commit suicide. Basically, trees and plants that are fed up with humanity’s destruction of the environment and seek to put an end to their existence by releasing the gas.

Mark Wahlberg, who played a science teacher in the film, recently divulged during a press conference for his upcoming film “The Fighter” that taking the gig was a pretty bad move.

“I was such a huge fan of [Amy Adams]. We’d actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie, and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. I don’t want to tell you what movie… alright, THE HAPPENING with M. Night Shyamalan. It is was it is. F*cking trees, man, the plants. F*ck it. You can’t blame me for wanting to try to play a science teacher, you know? I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook.”

“The Happening” is currently sitting at an 18% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
