I walked out of Jerry Maguire. Beside the fact i am not a TC fan i got very tired of the fowl language. I think the screen writer needed to make the script longer so stuck the F-bomb in every other word.
Love Jerry Maguire; one of few mainstream movies that almost accurately depicts the way in which desire just fades and then returns with little or no warning.
I don’t know if I’ve eve walked out of a movie… Being in a theater is usually more fun for me than being anywhere else. I did turnoff a rental the other day though and that was the first time I’d done that in a while. For the love of god, please NEVER rent Hellride, even if you want to test out your new Bluray for explosive POWER. It was the most unwatchable piece of garbage that ever made its way onto my screen.
Walked out on Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back. Not a fan of Kevin Smith but Roger Ebert(if memory serves) had given it a good review.
Left after about 30 minutes.
I can understand that. If you are not a fan of Smith Jay and Bob was not a film to try.
I didn’t notice the chickens in Jerry Maguire?
Sorry I couldn’t resist.
When I was a young woman of 18 or so, I walked out of Flesh Gordon. Expected funny spoof, but found stupid soft porn instead.
Several years later, when a group of us went to Greenaway’s The Falls, everyone in my party walked out about half-way through, except me. I can have a lot of patience!
Sometime about 15 – 20 years back, I just couldn’t sit through Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers (bunch of friends watching it on tape one New Year’s Eve). Found it grotesque — sheer torture to watch and left for home early.
absolutely love The Falls
Just remembered another one – I think it was the (1971) flick Vanishing Point (had to go to imdb to refresh mind on this), seen in 1974 or so . Insisted that my date agree to leaving theatre with me! [out of sheer boredom.]
i wanted to walk out on “crash” but the only reason i didn’t was because i was with a big group of people. (poor excuse, i know)
I love Vanishing Point. (but I can see why one would not find it of interest.)
Memoirs of a Geisha
I walked out of My Fellow Americans. It was a good decision.
The Golden Compass. Jesus christ need i say more.
What Dreams May Come – because I hated it.
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 – not even god knows why I went to that movie.
The Fountain. My God it was BAD!!!! And I love Aronofsky
Because Matthew above loves Vanishing Point, I looked into its info tonight on the web, and have decided that it might well be worth a second look. A lot can change, perspective-wise, in 35 years.
Wish that I too could have walked out of Pirates of the Carib. 2 — not an option when you’ve taken your daughter who’s been begging to go.
- Timeline. The only movie I have ever fallen asleep during in theaters. When I woke up, I walked out
- Pearl Harbor. I wanted a Michael Bay movie, not a Ben Affleck love triangle.
- Excalibur when I was six. Gabriel Byrne pegging that wench was too much for me. I eventually watched at when I was seven and just shut my eyes through that part
- Scotland, PA. The inability to live up to potential of it’s plot pissed me off so I turned off the DVD.
- Kingdom of Heaven.
I sat through the Fountain hoping that all three incarnations of Hugh Jackman would horribly die. Sadly, only the conquistador had an interesting death (acidic tree ejaculate that rapidly grew into vines).
Expired. I love Samantha Morton and it wasn’t her fault but this movie was pretty bad. Has anyone seen it? Jason Patric plays a particularly odious meter cop whose character constantly verbally abuses Samantha Morton’s and she constantly takes it. I finally did what Morton should have done and left.
i walked out of HOSTAL 2 ~ i was just sitting there thinking this is utter crap and there was no need for this to even have been filmed.
So i got up and got my $ back too!
I walked out on Devil Wears Prada and left my girlfriend there.
Hey, what the hell? This was my thread. Who are all of you people? Where do you come from? Who is your leader?
Paranoid Park – Cliche, childish, poorly executed crap. Even Doyle’s cinematography sucked. It was like Van Sant resurrected the same film for the 100th time, and people somehow thought it was “brilliant”. I really couldn’t care less what turns Van Sant on, but he seriously needs to get over his obsession with young middle/lower class under educated North American boys.
“The Ring” and "Ali G ".. and don’t ask me why i went to see these movie to the cinema …
hey Ronald , maybe i m gilty but i kind like Devil Wears Prada … but i know its not the best of movies but its entertaining at least for me =)
I love Dead Ringers, but I’ve also never met a woman who liked it, so there you go.
I walked out of Gosford Park because my Grandma was feeling sick.
Oh and Babysitters. That movie sucked.
EDIT: Double post
Yeah, I don’t know, maybe I just don’t know much about the fashion industry or something.
Paranoid Park was goooood.
I wish I had the nerve to walk out of a film but I can’t do it no matter how bad the film.
I only walked out of one movie. The Da Vinci Code.
Pure awfulness. How did an eighty year-old man who was shot in the chest lift paintings, draw on the floor with invisible ink, take off all of his clothes and die in that prone position? This occurred in the first five minutes. Then it got even worse.
