2012 (2009)

The king of disaster movies gave the world one of the most asinine entries to the genre with the end-of-the-world family drama 2012 that is filled with so many unexplainable and extremely unrealistic feats of strength and luck from its main cast that you may have forgotten about the subplot centering on the presidential line of succession. When John Cusack isn’t defying physics and reality, we get to see glimpses of White House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser, who is quite possibly the most detestable character in any disaster flick, as he grasps for power and appoints himself president after Thomas Wilson (Danny Glover) dies after staying in DC with the rest of the people facing certain doom. 

Over the course of 2012, Carl Anheuser not only takes the presidency for himself, he attempts to hide the truth of the disaster from the public, and then when there’s a way to weather the storm in a fleet of arks, he acts as if only the uber-wealthy and other celebrities deserve a seat, leaving everyone stuck outside to die in the rising waters and destruction on land.
