6. Annie Hall - What in God's name did people like about this movie?
7. Shakespeare In Love - What in God's name did people like about this movie?


There are other movies that were boring or stupid but the ones above stand out because they made me angry when I left the movie theater.
Spanglish--agreed. But for whatever reasons I gave them credit for 'honesty'--

Annie Hall--there are times when I think Diane Keaton and Woody should not exist--but from that film came the phrase--'Ladeeedaa' and the vests--how I love/loved the vests.

Shakespeare in Love--weel, at times Gwyneth gets it right and this was one of those occasions. Fan of the Bard's, etc--

The absolute, hands down, worst movie I've ever endured was "My Own Private Idaho"

Three movies I walked out on: What About Bob?; The Cable Guy; Pink Flamingos

Movies I wish I would have walked out on: Beaches; Looking for Mr. Goodbar; Men In Black; Sleepless in Seattle; Bram Stoker's Dracula; Born on the Fourth of July

Classic and/or popular movies where I just don't get the appeal: An Affair to Remember; Close Encounters of the Third Kind; Bull Durham; When Harry Met Sally; Gene Kelly movies; Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; and anything with Clark Gable in it aside from Gone With the Wind.

In reference to the third group--Affair to Remember-- well-done, romance. Bull Durham--take it or leave it; Close Encounters--would have liked it more w/o the person I was with; Harry Met Sally--funny--ROFLMAO in parts; Gene Kelly--good dancer--not always in the mood for all the singing and dancing; agree about Clark.

One of the funniest moments for me--Madonna's 'Evita' and what on earth was Antonio Banderas doing--singing away at moments that seemed to call for 'a few words'. You had to be there I suppose--I still LOL about that. Thought that version of 'Evita' was 'pretty good'--whatever.

I will just have to say that at times Michael Douglas irritates me. Forced to see one of his last movies the other night and wanted to smack him. In general I like his body of work.

I've only walked out of two movies in my life (and they were both a long, long time ago)... one I can't remember the name of. Some awful Victoria Principal movie. And the second was Network.

Yeah, I know it was supposed to be great. But I hated it.
