Besides The Mudge Boy, which I just couldn’t stand (I thought it was ridiculous despite the fact that it was such a film festival favorite), I walked out on Dancer in the Dark, Candyman II: Farewell to the Flesh, and “My Father the Hero” with Gerard Depardieu. (I didn’t walk out with Gerard Depardieu, I just walked out on the movie.)
About Dancer in the Dark, I was with a friend and we just couldn’t believe other people were sitting in the theater crying. We thought it was terrible. We weren’t prepared for the musical numbers and when Bjork broke into song we were totally surprised and erupted into stifled laughter. We were seated in the middle of a row and had to squeeze past a bunch of people to get out, I feel bad about that.
For the Gerard Depardieu, Candyman II, and Tank Girl, the only reason I was in there in the first place was that I was working at a movie theater at the time and could get in free, so I didn’t feel too bad about walking out.
The Detective with Frank Sinatra. I liked him in The Manchurian Candidate but this ridiculous acting of his in this film was overwelming, I had to up and go for fear of losing my mind.
Gilliam´s The Brothers Grimm
Oh, Dancer In The Dark…I had the urge to walk out during the entire movie, but I stayed because I wanted my date to give me a ride back to my place. I´ve hated Bjork with a passion since that movie.
The first Hostel. When I saw the asian girls eyball hanging out on her cheek I nearly threw up
Never walked out on a film. But I’ve stared at my watch and everything else around me until the offending film was over. Can’t remember which one(s), no surprise there.
The last one that comes to mind was Burnt by the Sun 2, the Exodus or whatever it was called, last year in Cannes. HORRENDOUS.
Even at 13, I found it mawkish.
When I pay for a movie, I stay for the movie. That said, I nearly walked out on “The Day After Tomorrow.” My friend and I spent the last half debating leaving. What a horrible film.
I saw “The Craft” back in 96 directed by Andrew Fleming when I was in the 6th grade, I walked out because it was a chick flick and I didn’t want to get beaten up by the older kids because I was alone in the theater.
