Why do bad writers exist?

After seeing the Fairly OddParents live action movie: Grow Up Timmy Turner! I ask this question with even more anger than I ever did before.
Now, I should have seen this coming from a long way. The series itself has been failing for a while and I realize that Nick is trying to milk the franchise for all it's worth, like they're doing to Spongebob, but FOP is a show that is pretty dear to my heart, so I decided to give it a chance. Heck, I got my user name thanks to FOP.
But holy shit. I just love killing myself, don't I?
Tootie is a typical boring ass Mary Sue; apparently turned into an action girl/tree-hugger for no apparent reason in the future...apparently still loves Timmy, but lost her glasses and her creepy stalkiness (which I thought were fairly endearing traits of her...) and basically becomes the shallow love interest for Timmy even though they haven't seen each other in 13 years and he was totally grossed out before. WONDERFUL what puberty can do.
The story doesn't follow the established canon AT ALL and they have so many loopholes that I just wanted to bang my head through a cheese grater. First of all, in Channel Chasers, it was already HEAVILY HINTED AT that Timmy would lose his Fairies around the time he left for College. Also, the entire point of that movie was that it was inevitable that he would lose his fairies one day...he'd just have to move on with his life like normal (and the ending was cute, with his kids getting fairies/him finding his time capsule).
Okay, and apparently, the writers have not read Da Rulez at all because he would have already lost his fairies like three times already.
First of all, Timmy did not seem to be MISERABLE at all...he seemed to be living a pretty carefee and stress-free life with Vicky and apparently Francis out of the way...Fairies were given to him because he was MISERABLE and he only gets to keep him if there are conflicts in his life that keep him MISERABLE. Otherwise, he's just a selfish spoiled brat...oh wait.
Second, I'm pretty sure that Cosmo and Wanda were more conscious about keeping themselves hidden in the early series...No wonder Crocker caught them so easily, they were just floating in plain sight in a crowded sidewalk wtf.
Third, Timmy told Tootie AND Chester AND AJ about the existence of his fairies. And Tootie had fucking proof right in front of her eyes...
The only part about this stupid film that I enjoyed was Crocker's actor, because I thought he was pretty spot on XD
although, his plans were fairly lacking in intuitiveness like they usually are and he probably should have been older...
Don't even get me started on the cheap ass romance plot and the obvious lack of common sense...but that's expected in anything Nickelodeon vomits out now a days.
CP OUT and furious.
disclaimer: why, yes, I'm too old to be watching this movie and i have no life so should we call the whaaambulance??
