Lazy use of sound effects has recently become a real problem for me. There's a thread right now about specific lines taking you out of the movie but for me a lame use of a sound effect can be a real turn-off. Not a dealbreaker but a momentbreaker for sure.
For example, I recently watched "Richard III" with Ian McKellen which was quite a solid film except for the overuse of this sound effects during one scene set inside a train wagon:
Seriously, it was used like fifteen times within that same scene and did indeed take me out of it. So lazy.
Here's another one: I'm a huge fan of Nolan's approach to sound but I rewatched "The Prestige" today and was, let's say, weirded out by one scene using these really cliched cat sound effects:
Richard King is an astonishing sound editor but I guess he was having a day off that time?
