Have you ever hated a movie so much that you left the movie theater?

I've left the theater once or twice because there were a few drunks making too much noise. I wanted to leave the odd film but didn't because I was with friends who wanted to stay. I really hated At Play in the Fields of the Lord. (Never heard of it? That's because it sucked and nobody saw it). But I was reviewing the movie for my campus newspaper and had to sit through the painfully long 3 hour 15 minute stinker.

So what about you -- what movie was so awful that you got up and left the theater?

I nearly walked out on Alexander.

Yeah. Farrell and Leto and I still considered bailing. Shows how suckitudinous it was. But I stayed, cause...well, I had nothing better to do. And I have a raging crush on Angelina.

(And Farrell...and Leto...and JRM...)

Does leaving the room where the DVD was playing count? Mr. Lily put in Kill Bill. Ten minutes after the credits I went upstairs, put on headphones, and didn't come down till he yelled upstairs that it was over.

I should've walked out on Pulp Fiction. Still regret not doing that.

*wrenches thread back on track*

Kiddo and I should've walked out on the Clash of the Titans remake, but we chose to whisper MST3K-style riffs to each other throughout the last 3/4 of it instead. Made for a much more enjoyable film.

I can't remember the few movies I've walked out of. Probably has something to with them being so bad. None recently, though.

I regret not walking out of the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.

You owe me a keyboard.

Saw it on opening night with a friend. Lots of people were crying when the credits rolled. Not me. I realized at that point, that I'd been pushing myself back and back in my seat in a futile effort to get away from the movie.

Many many years ago walked out of the first version of Casino Royale. And I was on a date. Gave him the option of leaving with me or staying. He left. Should have walked out to the recent War of the Worlds. By 20 minutes in I was saying to myself "are we there yet? are we there yet?".

Add me to the hate list. Watched it with hubby, who thinks everyone should see it once. I thought it was the stupidest movie I had ever sat through.

The only movie I've ever walked out of in theaters was Nine (I think that's what it's called - the one about an Italian director who does nothing but whine and complain about his life and cheat on his wife). I kept nearly falling asleep, and I wasn't even tired when we went in. Even the glitzy dance numbers were boring. Yech.

I didn't walk out of JP, but I laughed all the way through it and got dirty looks from the elderly couple in front of me who kept poking each other asking "What'd he say Pearl/Fred?"

So what about you -- what movie was so awful that you got up and left the theater?
I walked out of "Quiet Days in Clichy" and "Pulp Fiction".

If I had watched them in the theater and not on DVD, I would have walked out of "He's Just Not That Into You" and - probably the most overrated movie of the century - "Slumdog Millionaire". What a violent, brutal, annoying picture. I will never understand how anyone could have approved of labeling this a "feel-good movie". It made me feel miserable.

I have also suffered a lot through "Battlefield Earth", however, that one was supposed to be majorly sucky and I only watched it for Scientology references - so I hadn't expected it to be good in any kind or way to begin with.

Quentin Tarantino movies are generally not for me. He seems to love drugs and violence. I disdain both.

I walked out of Poltergeist as a kid. A woman was screaming bloody murder at the face-pulling-off scene and I couldn't take it. I left my sister there alone and went to the next theater to watch a Star Trek flick with my mom and brother!

I don't really remember walking out of movies. I suffer until the end. Having said that, I'm usually meticulous about reading up the reviews before I venture anywhere near a movie.
This year, I was thinking about seeing Killers (Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl) and Knight and Day (Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz) but I changed my mind after reading the reviews.
As to Tarantino, Jackie Brown is a great movie, and probably the least violent of his. Inglourious Basterds is violent but I liked it because its original take on the war and the characters.

I walked out of the Mel Brooks remake of To Be Or Not To Be (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086450/). It was painfully bad.

I should have walked out of Titanic and the last Terminator movie. But didn't.

I would have walked out of Eyes Wide Shut, had I seen it in the theaters. Instead, I just turned it off.

Pulp Fiction is one of my favourite movies, but if you don't like movies with swearing, drugs and violence, then I could easily see why somebody would walk out of the theater.

I don't think I've ever walked out of a theater, but I don't go to them very often. I've definitely turned some off in the middle. something with Colin Farrell -A New World or something like that. Good Lord, it was terrible. There are a few others, but that's the one that sticks out in my head the most.

When kiddos were little, I took them to the Jimmy Neutron movie. (There is a spa waiting in Heaven for every parent who suffered through that thing.) I couldn't walk out, as much as every cell in my body wanted to. No joke, I literally fell asleep halfway through. Fortunately my mom-brain kicked in and I woke up 10 seconds later. Younger kiddo thought that was funny.

I would get ready to start to leave the theatre thinking "This is the end ..." and then it would keep going....

That's how I felt about HP 3(?)--the one where Hermoine has the watch that manipulates time. Toward the end when she turns it so they can rescue the giant bird, I remember thinking, "Not 20 more minutes of this!"

Christmas Vacation - Don't remember the details, other than feeling that I'd rather get a root canal without Novocain than continue watching.

First Knight - Once Guinevere said she was glad she chose Arthur for a husband, that did it for me.


Movies I turned off:

Revolutionary Road - so damn bleak I had to stop watching.

I had to suffer through 'the road' - they played it on a coach trip, and I had to put my earphones in, turn up my music super loud, and then wrap a scarf around my head, followed by the quilted hood of my jacket - could still hear the post apocalyptic screams.

The only movie I have actually wanted to walk out of - as in really really - was the Insider with Russell Crowe.

My sister and I went not knowing what it was about. I'm sure that kind of semi documentary 'true life' story might interest some, but I swear to god it was the most boring movie I have ever seen.

I recently hired 'dear john' out - and even though it has channing tatum in it, I sat through all of it wondering when the good bit would come on, or when, gee, I don't know - they'd introduce some plot.

It never happened.

Except.

The music was the most ear rapingly terrible music I've EVER heard. It was so bad that it made watching the movie almost completely impossible.

Two walkouts: THE PELICAN BRIEF, for its amazing tediousness and all the characters delivering flat affectless monotones out of the sides of their mouths the whole time as if even they couldn't believe how boring the movie was. Also, Mel Gibson's POINT BLANK remake PAYBACK, which was ugly, pointless, unfunny, misogynistic, and stupid, and I lasted only about half an hour.
My girlfriend recently walked out of IRON MAN 2 on the grounds that it was extremely boring, which was fair enough because there's basically only one action scene in the movie and it comes right at the end about five minutes after she left the cinema. I toughed it out to the bitter end; remember, I've seen most of THE PELICAN BRIEF.

This is how bad the movie was. My best friend and I were totally drunk - we bought a bottle of raspberry-flavored brandy, took it into a $2 movie theatre, and spiked our Cokes. It was a double-feature, two movies for two dollars. Roger Rabbit was the first movie, and since I've never seen the movie sober, I couldn't tell you if it's any good or not, but drunk, it was an Oscar-winning cinematic success.

The second movie was Iron Eagle II. My friend even slipped out the emergency exit, went across the street to a gas station/liquor store and came back with more brandy. Nothing made this movie entertaining, not even complete and total drunkenness, and we ended up walking out.

Edited to add: I should have walked out of Operation Dumbo Drop. I went to see the movie with some friends, one of whom had a toddler. He was used to watching movies at home on the VCR, and he'd wave 'bye-bye' at the end of the movie. By the time all the opening credits were done for Operation Dumbo Drop, he was screaming bye-bye and game over at the top of his lungs, and this is a child who was normally very easy-going. My friend ended up leaving, and she took her son over to a McDonald's or something while the rest of us watched the movie. He had the right idea. It ended up being the most boring movie I'd ever seen in my life.

I just cannot not see the end of a movie, just can't do it. So I'm destined to sit through any stinker that I make the mistake of going to see.

The last film I really wanted to walk out of a movie was "He's Just Not That Into You." I hate that kind of film and only went to see it because a girlfriend of mine was depressed, she was desperate to get out of the house, and I stupidly said, "You pick the movie." That film triggered my gag reflex several times before it ended.

I've never walked out of a movie before. Even on the rare occasions when I actually see a movie I dislike (I either have very good judgment about what I buy tickets for or very low standards- you decide!), I stick around to the end anyway. Sometimes, movies get better. Failing that, I can make fun of them. I just paid ten bucks (or whatever the ticket cost) and I'm getting my money's worth, even if the movie sucks.

Now, whenever I see a movie for the first time, I stay through the end credits, not just for the post-credits bonuses that are so popular these days, but also because I feel that it's respectful to those who put so much time and effort into making the film. This is only if I really liked the movie, however. If I didn't like it, I walk out with most of the crowd. It's not as dramatic a statement as walking out during the movie, but that's just how I roll.

The only movie I ever saw in theaters that I would have walked out on was Epic Movie. However, in that case, I didn't actually realize how bad the film was until after I left the theater. I guess I was in some kind of daze during the actual movie, since the shittiness of the product didn't occur to me immediately.

I've never walked out of a movie and there are few movies that I longed to walk out of(maybe because I don't go to the movies very often?), However I should have walked out of Watchmen, I even wished to, but I was a teenager and thought I would embarress myself in front of my friends. I totally regretted staying, because that nearly three-hour gore and porn fest gave me nightmares and anxiety for a few days.

1. Bright Lights Big City

2. Meet the Parents

3. Crash (the one with Holly Hunter, not the Oscar-winning one)

And agreed, Yukon, the final LOTR had four endings. FOUR! It. Just. Wouldn't. End.

I have walked out of a movie only two times, during the late 70's, and I have no idea of their names. Think Tarantino's 'Death Proof', they were both the type which inspired him to make that one. Lots of car chases and sex, unsympathetic characters and no plot to speak of.

So of course I had to watch 'Death Proof'. DVD, and I ended up using the fast forward a lot.

The one I fell asleep watching was 'Eyes wide shut'. I was with two friends, so didn't want to leave, but I missed most of it. At least I didn't snore, according to them anyway.

I watch DVD's a lot more than go to movies, nowadays, and if I rent it I watch at least most of it, but there have been several where that fast forward button got a lot of use. Great invention, if you ask me.
