    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    The wife and I bought "Lost in Translation" on DVD. I love bill Murray. We kept watching the damn movie for somthing to happen. Nothin happened. We threw it away when we were done. Horrible freakin movie. If I would have been in a theatre I would have walked out.
    I generally pick movies in the theatres better than DVD. In order for me to go to a theatre I really need to know what I am gong to spend that much money on. Ill give any DVD a try.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I watched that movie with my wife too...what did happen in that film? What was the point or the ending? It was boring for sure...but I can't remember any conclusion to it...

    I paid $1 to go see Alex Cross, never heard of it before and it was the only one that was $1 that I hadn't seen.

    Saw Tyler Perry

    Got the **** out

    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    Walked out of xXx with Vin Diesel... worst movie of all time.

    Only other time I did was when I 6 and my dad and left the movie 'Willow' because the little pig things scared me... we snuck into Short Circuit, which as most of you know was amazing!

    For the record, I have rewatched Willow and found it to be pretty great too

    Much like you, I haven't mustered up the want to sit through another one of those or re-watch the original three. Bunch of my friends went to the Smaug movie this weekend and said it was terrible. I think i'll just permanently stay away from the series.

    I actually liked "The Fisher King".

    They used to show midnight movies in the campustown theater. Walked out of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". Too gory for my girlfriend, now wife. (And me!)

    And walked out of "Fritz the Cat". Four of us went, expecting something funny, but it was plain stupid, so we left.

    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    Went to 'Pulse' on a first date with my now wife. We both desperately wanted to leave but it was one of those "but what if the other person likes it" things and being a first date, we didn't want to disappoint the other. We both sat through that terrible movie and as we were leaving, we both found out the other wanted to leave.

    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    Only time I came close was Cry Baby. It was so bad, but just had to stay to see how much worse it could get. There were about 20 people in the theatre when it started and 6 when it finished.

    When we first started dating in HS my wife's friends forced me to watch that movie. The only good thing to come out of it was that I will know randomly say I hate things because they killed my father.

She said she was trying to figure out how to get out. So I showed her out. I then decided there was really no reason to go back in and left. I have since tried to watch it on cable and I just can't do it.
    Kung Fu Hustle is a good movie.
