    Have you ever walked in to a movie?

    To go along with the other thread. Have you ever gone to a movie on a whim, having no idea what to expect, and walked out with a new favorite?

    Several years ago we went out to dinner with friends and they said hey, let's go to a movie. We went to the theater and picked the next movie that was starting, having not heard of it and knowing nothing about it. That movie was "American Pie," one of the all-time greats in my mind!

    Re: Have you ever walked in to a movie?

    As of now, I have walked into every movie I've been to. Maybe someday I will mix it up and either run or crawl in, but that day has yet to come.

    We're the Millers.

    Figured it would be good for a laugh or two at most. Not a huge Aniston fan.

    I was so wrong. Stellar comedy the whole way through.

    It's been a long time since I've just went to a movie on a whim. I think the best was when MNCyGal and I randomly went to Forgetting Sarah Marshall at the Ames dollar theater That movie was a nice surprise.

    Re: Have you ever walked in to a movie?

    We walked into Napolean Dynamite figuring it was some kind of action movie...never seeing a trailer for it.


    Walked out with my side hurting. It was just so unexpected.

    A Knight's Tale with Heath Ledger. Hadn't read any reviews or watched any trailers for it. My wife and I went into it with zero expectations. Excellent movie - Mark Addy, Alan Tudyk and Paul Bettany all gave great performances. If you haven't seen it, I'd highly recommend it!

    My wife and I went to "While You Were Sleeping" starring Sandra Bullock, without knowing anything about it, and we really enjoyed that movie. It still ranks up there as one of our all-time favorite RomComs.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    "Over the Hedge." Got drunk with some college buddies and went on a whim. We loved it so much we went out and got more friends to come back and watch a later showing that same night. Only time I've ever gone to see a movie in a theater twice in one day.

    We saw Cowboy's and Aliens in the theater. The older guy behind us was talking before the movie started and he thought it was going to be about Cowboy's and illegal Aliens and some kind of border dispute. After the movie he said something like "didn't see that coming".

    Hot Rod. Hot Rod all day long. I had no idea what the movie was. Oh man what a classic. Every time I watch it I find amazing new lines.

    Did the same exact thing with American Pie... Just went to kill time with zero expectations... Laughed my *** off.

    Napoleon Dynamite - I was originally thinking some sort of nerdy superhero kind of movie, walked out of there with stupid humor one-liners stuck in my head for days. Stupid humor is what I thrive on.

    Im pretty sure both men and women are fans. Are you either? Her dance scene in that is worth the admission price alone.

    I'm not a laugh out loud person. I kind of zone out when watching TV and movies (drives my wife nuts) but I'm laughing on the inside. I could not contain myself with American Pie.
