How bad would a Novus Ordo Mass have to be to justify not attending?

How are you supposed to know before you go?

If, before watching a religious movie designed (supposedly) to increase virtue, we read from its reviews that there is a likelihood of obscenity, yet we watch it anyway and the movie is obscene, then we cannot claim innocence. We can never justify evil in the name of good.

Edited to add: I'm not comparing the Novus Ordo Missae to a movie; but it is a similar principle.
