    Hated Every Which Way But Loose (or maybe it was the followup). My roommates loved them and I somehow decided to tag along. I probably would have walked out if I'd been by myself.

    Lastly, the Steve Martin version of Sgt. Bilko was bad. Three of us former roommate got together a couple times a year and we picked that one. I looked over at one point and both of them were gap-jawed and eyes shut.

    I haven't been to a theatre to see a movie since 2007 when the Simpsons movie came out, so I'm not a real movie buff. Most people would be shocked at the number of famous movies I've never seen.
    Sgt Bilko was terrible

    It was so bad that they got out of their wheelchairs and WALKED out? That's AMAZING!

    Well, I now know two people that I would never get along with.

    I almost walked out of the midnight premier for Transformers 2. I've always loved transformers and watching that pile of **** felt like it was destroying a beloved part of my childhood. It was a similar feeling as when my Mom sold a bunch of my NES games for like 10 cents at a garage sale.

    My mom sold my NES and all my games at a garage sale after I went to college. I will never forgive her. She's lucky she gets to see my kids.

    Obviously it was years ago...I don't even remember the name of the movie or the stars.
    If the star of the movie was Traci Lords you might have been in trouble.

    Gods and Generals was so disappointing as Gettysburg is a great movie and I think it was from the same books, director, etc.

    Walked out of Watchmen and Alexander.

    My ex-girlfriend dragged me to the first Twilight movie. Wish I could have walked out of that one.

    Fell asleep watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

    Wait, you're telling me you walked out of the FIRST MOVIE in one of the most beloved and influential series of all time because it was too overplayed? I can understand thinking 3 Hobbit movie's is ridiculous (it is). But walking out of Fellowship because you are tired of all this damn Lord of the Rings stuff? That's more than a little ridiculous. What did you expect?

    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    I have never walked out.

    I was close to doing it when I saw "Se7en," not because I disliked it "artistically," but its graphic depictions of some of the sins challenged my tolerance level, so it became unsettling to watch. And I have a strong stomach for most things (I've grown increasingly unable to handle scenes involving knives, though...).

    I've endured plenty of bad movies over the years. Even if I despise a film for one reason or another (lame plot, bad acting, boring, insults my intelligence, "comedy" that contains zero laughs, etc.), it can be enjoyable to stay and "hate-watch."

    Re: Have you ever walked out of a movie?

    The only two we've left were because of an antsy toddler - Brave and Rise of the Guardians. She now loves Brave, but I don't think any of us were enough invested in Guardians to care.

    I haven't left any movies (to date) because they were so bad - but I do have a habit of embarrassing the crap out of my husband by laughing at things that I find insanely bad, even when they're not funny. Spiderman 3, when he was doing the emo b.s.? I laughed a ton. That stupid scene in Pirates 3 where they're fighting on top of the rolling wheels things? Almost got kicked out. I almost had to go to the lobby for whichever X-Men movie had Kelsey Grammer in blue face paint and fur.

    You were lucky to miss Crystal Skull. I prefer to pretend that one never existed.

    Reminds me of a story about my mom. We went to see Temple of Doom at the drive in. My mom fell asleep and ever since then we've made fun of her. If she thinks somethings boring we ask her if it's as "boring" as Temple of Doom.
