    Movies you've walked out of.

    Figured I'd throw out another movie topic. Which movies, if any, have you walked out on in the theater?

    For me I've only had one: Vertical Limit. Such a terrible terrible opening 30 minutes, my friends and I couldn't even stay to make fun of it. It kind of put the last nail in the coffin of Chris O'Donnell's movie career.

    Vertical Limit (2000)

    I didn't walk out on it but I went to see Grindhouse at a late showing its opening week. There were only 8 people in the theater in the first place (a sign of how poorly the movie did) but after the first 10 minutes of Planet Terror 4 people got up and left. I'm guessing they had no idea what the hell they got into when they went to watch a Rodriguez/Tarantino double feature.

    school of rock. not by choice or because the movie was that bad, but some little high school kid took a dump in the back of the theatre. I like the movies, don't get me wrong. But I don't like the movies enough to smell someone else's **** for two hours.

    Never walked out on any, but that's because I fell asleep in some. Like the first LOTR. Story is good, movie is too drawn out or something...

    Usually when I go to see movies though, it's with other people so I don't just want to leave exactly.

    Re: Movies you've walked out of.

    MrsPhaedrus walked out of "The Time Traveller's Wife". Seems that the story line was a little too close to home to be entertainment for her.

    I think MrsPhaedrus and I have only walked out of one theater movie. "Legend" with Tim Curry. Absolutely awful.

    Shh, we try and keep Phaedrus' abilities secret here. He's planning on going back in time and blocking Cameron Dollar's shot for us if we keep his secret.

    Do you really need to have the analogy explained to you? The movie is about trying to maintain a loving relationship to a man who just unexpectedly disappears and reappears into a woman's life at random.
