Hitch!

Both my ex and I stormed out of that movie. Such a waste of time and money. Talk about dumbing down the population.

Tentacles (1977)

From Wikipedia: Ocean Beach, a seaside tourist resort, has come under attack by a giant octopus, which captures and devours human swimmers and boaters ... Marine expert Will Gleason (Bo Hopkins) and crusading newspaper reporter Ned Turner (John Huston!) suspect the construction of an underwater tunnel by the Trojan Co., owned by Mr. Whitehead (Henry Fonda!). Trojan has been using radio signals that have been "above regulated levels", somehow maddening the octopus and causing it to attack human beings. In the end, the octopus is killed by Gleason's pair of killer whales. Also in the cast are Shelley Winters, Cesare Danova and Claude Akins.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tentacles_(film)

Who would have guessed that, with a cast like this, the film would be so ghastly?! It's not even funny-bad!

I should have gone to the other movie in the theater (only two screens back then): "The Island of Dr. Moreau" starring Burt Lancaster, Michael York, Barbara Carrera, Richard Basehart, Nigel Davenport and Nick Cravat!

I just have to leave some information about Cravat, especially his long-time connection to Lancaster:
From Wikipedia: Cravat and Lancaster met as youngsters at a summer camp in New York and became lifelong friends. They created an acrobatic act called Lang & Cravat in the early 1930s and joined the Kay Brothers circus in Florida. The pair worked at various circuses and in vaudeville. In 1939, Lancaster suffered a hand injury that ended their act. They would later reunite. He co-stars with Lancaster in nine films, including The Crimson Pirate, The Flame and the Arrow, and Run Silent, Run Deep. He played a mute character in several films such as The Flame and the Arrow, The Crimson Pirate, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier, and the TV series The Count of Monte Cristo mostly because his thick Brooklyn accent would have been out of place. He also played the gremlin on the wing of an airplane in the 1963 Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet". Nick Cravat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My younger sister and I had such a crush on Nick Cravat, ever since we were little girls.

The question was "If you could..."

Party pooper.

Most stinkers I watched for free.
Now I have to really want to see something (and I am usually right based on previews if it is going to be good) to go to a theater, so it really hasn't been anything truly stinker.
I guess that stupid Transformers (second one) movie that my friend wanted to see.
What a freakin' waste of time.

I remember the biggest refund-maker when I worked at the theater...was Howard's End.
People came out and were all like, "Nothing freakin' happens!" I was like, "Dude. It's a movie about people having tea. What did you expect?"

The Dustin Hoffman movie 'John and Mary'. Never seen it huh? Don't.........

The boy was on a roll........ 'The Graduate' followed by 'Midnight Cowboy'....... the only thing that made 'John and Mary' bearable was it was part of a double bill with 'Fathom' starring my girl Raquel Welch.......

Never go to a film that has "Howard" as part of the name -
Howard the Duck (1986) - IMDb
