I wanted to walk out of Ghostbusters 2, but I was only 12 and there with my folks.

The 13th Warrior...what a piece of drek.

None. It's the principle of the matter for me. If I paid for it, I'm going to watch it. Of course, I don't waste my money going to too many movies.

The Avengers and Urban Legend 2.

I sat through all of Power Rangers 2 (also had a good TMBG song in it), saw Titanic twice before it opened (ughh), and also, please don't revoke my man card, I saw Spice Girls before it opened, all the way through. (In my defense I worked at a theater at the time, and had to make sure there weren't any problems with the film).

I walked out of my own living room when watching "Thin Red Line". Glad I didn't waste the money at the movie theater to see it.

My only regret is not asking for my money back.

Meet the Fockers (sequel to Meet the Parents) - stupid, lowest common denominator, underestimate-the-intelligence-of-dogs-that-might-some-day-see-it-on-video-with-their-owners kind of crap. Got my money back but really think they owed me for wasting 15 minutes of my life.

If something sucks, and you leave early enough, most managers will give you your money back. If I buy something and it sucks or is defective, I return it. A movie that truly sucks is defective merchandise.

I'm not going to ask for a refund on something as subjective as the quality of a movie. I just remember the name of the offender, whether it be director, screenplay writer, actor etc and generally avoid seeing any of their future output at theater prices. Since I only see movies that I have checked into I haven't really gone to see any that I felt the need to walk out on. Rentals are a whole different story, I have turned several of those off in disgust.

The list of movies that I should have is long though.

Ishtar
Gung Ho (Keaton not Wayne)
Bean (Dude from Black Adder)
Cold Mountain
Spies Like Us
Dragnet (w/ Hanks)
Bridges of Madison County
Great outdoors
Uncle Buck

There are more but this is all I can think of right now.

Could've sworn I was the only person who thought that way.

Never walked out of a movie, closest I ever came was "Crazy/Beautiful". I wanted to so badly but my friend had to give me a ride home.

Tears of the Sun
I almost put a bullet through my TV watching that piece of crap.
Ok, neat gear, and I love seeing depictions of our SF warriors getting ready to do some sneaky or nasty stuff. The first time the doctor lady tells me "i'm not going without these people" I would point off at some imaginary thing and yell lookout! promptly pistol whip her, throw her over my shoulder, and hump it back to the extraction point.
What a pile of crap! I could not even finish the movie.

The only reason I didn't walk out was because I kept thinking it would get better. It never did.

This is one of the few movies I almost dozed off to in the theater.

There WAS one time an usher asked me to leave shortly after the film started because I was the only one there (for some awful Peter Fonda flick) and he had a date with the concession girl (good name). If I stayed, they'd HAVE to show the movie but if I left they could close up and he could score. I did him the solid, got my money back, and he let me in free the next night.

I will never walk out of any film in which someone fires a BAR.

Films I have walked out of:

Josie and the Pussycats
Bring It On

(both chick flicks I went to see with some broad)

Also some new flick starring Josh Hartnett, so forgettable that I don't remember the name of the movie.

Didn't really walk out because I was watching it on dvd in Living Room but I could only make it through about a half hour of the life aquatic . I really wanted to like it, Bill Murray used to be funny and the previews looked great but what a dud of a movie.

This summer at the drive ins; Wax Museum, hey the point was a date with a girl not the movie. It was a blind date, wish I was blind! So date was lame and movie matched it. I was only sorry I didn't call it quits at the first movie, The Longest Yard which sucked nearly as bad as date and Wax Museum!!!!!!

13th Warrior was an entertaining diversion, with an interesting psuedo-historical twist. I bought the DVD I liked it so much.

It's horribly inaccurate from a historical standpoint, but a fun watch regardless.

Now Natural Born Killers?



After all of the lauding about Stone's 'masterful direction', I kept waiting for some cop on the block to bust a cap in Woody's head and put us all out of our misery. I'm just glad it was on cable, and I didn't have to pay to see it.

Of course, this is probably another example of the Wife's being right... she says it only makes sense if you're on peyote, or acid.

i walked out of the Cat In The Hat with my kids and DEMANDED my money back. if you ever seen the movie you know why.



back in highschool i walked out of class after the second time the teacher woke me up during The Fiddler on the Roof. i went strait to the detenion office and said i would not watch the movie and i would spend the time in here studying. the teacher tried to make me go back and i refused.



napolian dynamite was even more boring than that. i walked out of the living room and hung out at ARFCOM. if a movie sucks, i won't waste my time.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 12:26:38 PM EDT
Well, I've never walked out on one, but the closest I ever came to doing so was Kill Bill.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 8:29:31 PM EDT
Walked out of House of the Dead. I didn't even want to see this movie, just showed up with some friends and we ended up going in to check it out. Not to knock hot chick nudity, but any pretty much non porno film that opens with naked chicks your know is going to be a piece of shit. The lines in this movie sounded like the actors were repeating them as they heard them through an ear piece or read off cue cards or some shit. I think there were about a dozen people in the theatre and I just ripped this movie apart out loud making fun of it MST3K style, before we got bored and just said 'fuck it' and got our coin back.

Also to this day I will never figure out why I didn't walk on Kung Pow: enter the fist, I wanted this movie to be funny so bad. I was hoping for a great martial arts spoof like kentucky fried movie or something but the laughs just never came and the stupidity just got out of hand and next thing I knew the movie was over.

Should have walked on 'summer of sam' too, I didn't realise it was a Spike Lee movie at first, then I was crushed when I realised it wasn't a movie about 'Son of Sam' killing people but a movie about a group of douchebags going about their pointless and uninteresting lives whilst living in fear of Sam killing people. I guess I just had to sit through just to see the few scenes of peoples heads exploding under close range .44 magnum shots. The scene with the dog was just rediculous, laughable cartoon voice saying something like 'You should kill em sam!' with a shitty looking animated mouth superimposed over a real dog like in those pet food commercials.

I know I've done it but I can't remember the movie was so forgetable.

I've fallen asleep in a lot of movies.
I forced myself to sleep through U-Turn.

Most of the time I can't stand not knowing how a movie ends no matter how awful it is.

What's even worse is the book they put out BASED ON THE MOVIE, which has none of Dr. Seuss' original rhyming or charm whatsoever. Reminds me of Woody Allen's joke about buying the rights to "My Fair Lady" and taking all the music out to make it back into "Pygmalion."

I actually fell asleep during Thin Red Line. Really sad to be snoozing through a war flick. Best part? When I woke up, my friends weren't there! I call them on the cell phone, they're next door at the book store: "You looked so peaceful, we didn't want to wake you!" lol

This got me thinking ... I know it was mentioned in a GD thread about RAH stories, but what about:




Man, talk about a disappointment. "Based on the work by Robert A. Heinlein" my ass.


Spoiled rich kid falls into a commission by attrition (funny, they weren't Klingons) and they kill lots of funny looking bugs at the direction of Doogie Howser.

A better tag line would be "Based on a cocaine infused half asleep recollection of a book I read once after f*cking a drunk chick at a Hollywood party one time"

At least it would be an honest tag line...

If you thought Starship Troopers sucked (which I didn't) stay far, far away from Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation. They turn the whole thing into a no-budget mess of a mutation of Aliens, The Thing and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Even the director's audio commentary laments the non-existant budget. More worthless than Battlefield Earth. Really!

"The Black Hole', a sci-fi movie made by Disney that a buddy and I went to see back in the 1970's. The special effects were BAD, IIRC you could see the strings holding the poorly made models up. It takes a a pretty bad movie to bore two 13 year old boys out of, but this one was a stinker.
