Nice ones. I told my parents I was seeing "She's Having a Baby" and went to see "Serpent and the Rainbow." Got grounded for two weeks. Always remember to throw away those ticket stubs.

THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW rocks, so I'm sure it was well worth the consequences.

You and me, Emily. I tell myself that even watching a crappy film teaches me something of value, but really, it's because I'm too tight to waste a ticket.

Having said that, my daughter and I walked out of the Nancy Drew remake a few years ago, only because she was freaking out and the sound was terrible. Crackly, and fading in and out... So we left.

I got my money back.

I've never left the theater either. But I rented Transporter 3 and shut it off. Shutting off a movie pre Netflix Instant days was a big deal for me.

Just kidding.

Jeff Shurtleff
If I remember correctly there was a shot in the film during a scene when a dog was chasing a cat and -- I swear to god -- it was a p.o.v. shot from the cat's butt. You could see the cat's tail at the top of the screen and the dog coming right at you.

I think I walked out shortly thereafter.

I rarely see movies in a theater anymore. The last one was Jackson's KING KONG & only b/c I took my young nephew.

I don't remember walking out on any specific movie when I was younger. I know there must be some. I remember falling asleep during the DREAM TEAM (a Michael Keaton movie).

I watch all my movies at home on DVD. I watch the first 10 or 15 min and if it doesn't grab me by then, I walk out & let my husband watch the rest. He has a higher tolerance for dreck than I do. This happens ALL THE TIME. I've lost count.

Nothing, ever. The thought doesn't even cross my mind. I paid, dammit. I'm staying.

I've gotten very good at not walking into terrible movies in the first place.

Only one time. It was a South Korean movie called The Red Shoes.

Normally, I stick out bad movie to the bitter end, but this was in the middle of a film festival where I was seeing several movies a day, so I didn't feel bad about walking out.

I'm with Emily and Nic on this one: I paid for it, by god! YOU CAN'T MAKE ME LEAVE!!

I think I saw RED SONJA in the theater. I have no idea how old I was or even what it was about, but my mom was bartending at the restaurant next door during lunch and it was summer and I always went to the theater while she was working (she had to get me in to see THE THING when it came out)...anyway, there were about five or six people at the matinee that day and by the end of the movie there were only two of us left, me and some other guy.

At the end of it we walked out, gave each other a nod to say that we've experienced the worst and lived to tell the tale...and then I think he offered me candy and wanted me to take a peek inside his van. I can't really remember 'cause it was so long ago. Or maybe I've just blocked out that particular memory.
