1996 - The English Patient. Afterr watching him walk through the desert for 20 minutes my friend jumped up and asked to see the manager. He then proclaimed, "not only do I want my money back, but I want compensation for cruel and unusual punishment".

It was Jerry McGuire. And it was football.

God, yes...and I stop off at the ticket counter and ask 'may i get my $ back or get credit...either one is fine, cuz I come here all the time'.
They always are happy to do so.
One time in The Counselors I said, ''I know I've been in there for an hour, but i kept WAITING for it to get better!'' Do not see it!
One time, I said, ''The movie is just too realistic I can't take it''....a plane crashed
in mountains in S. Am...a true story.
That last one with Tom Hanks in the desert...oh my, the worst!

I walked out on Popeye with Robin Williams and Shelly Duvall.

I think it was 1980.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible.

Most of the theaters that I've experience only allow you to be in the theater for only 20 or 30 minutes in order for them to give you a refund.

Oh, and that reminds me. John Carter and Cloud Atlas were two more that I walked out of.

I wanted, and should have, walked out on The Mummy just this last weekend. It is a terrible, terrible movie. The plot makes not a lick of sense, the storyline doesn't follow any kind of rudimentary path. It is everything I've ever seen wrong with a movie. If you by chance are thinking of seeing this, please don't.

My five-year-old son and I mutually agreed to walk out of "Spacehunter--Adventures in the Forbidden Zone."


It was part of the 3D revival in the 80s and even had a decent B-movie cast. None of that saved it.


Peter Strauss as Wolff
Molly Ringwald as Niki
Ernie Hudson as Washington
Michael Ironside as Overdog

I'll admit it's a guilty pleasure, but I love the POPEYE movie. Mostly because it is so bad.

One of the Star Trek movies, I can't remember which one it was. It was so boring, my husband fell asleep and started snoring. I woke him up and we left.
