I haven't, but I almost did.

This is going to age me, but I saw Iron Eagle at the theater. Mid 80s. I thought it was the dumbest movie I'd ever seen. Ever. And this was a time when my standards for movies were very low. I couldn't believe how dumb that movie was. But I couldn't walk out of the movie because the concept was so alien to me.

I didn't see Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man or Tango and Cash at the theater. But if I had, I might very well have walked out. Those two movies eclipsed even Iron Eagle as the worst movies I'd ever seen.

IRON EAGLE is one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen, but I have seen it at least 10 times. Hey, I had HBO as a kid.

The only movie I have ever walked out of after paying full admission was HIGHLANDER 2, which should be studied in film school as a perfect example of how NOT to make a sequel in every single scene. At least those I saw. I think I made it about 25 minutes before walking out.

Movies where I fell asleep in the theater due to boredom:

NOMADS, a rightly forgotten Pierce Brosnan movie from the '80s.

RED HEAT. I didn't realize it was possible for Schwarzenegger to make a boring movie, but it is, and this is it.

The only movie I've walked out on was Freddy Got Fingered.

Iron Eagle was awesome...viewing it as an Air Force brat in elementary school.

I wanted to walk out of Wolf of Wall Street, but I was in the center of the row.

Yep. Absolutely horrible. And all the more disappointing because I liked the first one so much. I didn't see it at the theater, but I didn't make it 30 minutes into the VHS tape....

Different perspective, I get it. But "borrowing two F-16s" and bombing Saddam Hussein while listening to Twisted Sister in your headphones? Even my retarded 22 year old brain realized what a mind-numbingly stupid concept that was....

I think that may have been the first time I understood that, yes, there were truly awful movies out there. I also knew then that Lou Gossett Jr. was finished as a serious actor.

Dick Tracy madonna needs to stop acting.

Monster House was bored

Surfs Up bored

Looper not so much because of the movie, but because someone decided to urinate in the theater.

This one MANY people will disagree with me on.. But I did walk out of it..

My Blue Heaven with Steve Martin and Rick Moranis.

Love Martin, love Moranis.. This movie.. Just sucked.

I couldn't take the accent that Martin did throughout the movie.

Yeah, not great for anything beyond a pre-teen. My little sister called it the "Save the Daddy" movie and loved it. 80s kid fare along with Karate Kid, Flight of the Navigator, etc.

The Goonies in the Air Force is a good description.
