    I'm just intrigued as to how many people on here have paid to see a film and left before the end, and indeed what film it was?

    Mine was Blair Witch Project. Bored after 30 minutes, walked after 45. The wife's was You Got Mail...

    Never walked out of the cinema, but turned rental dvds of after an hour all the time.

    Not quite as dramatic is it.

    1. Playtime. Now my favourite film.

    Never walked out.

    Well except this one time but that was only cause something important came up. I guess that doesnt count.

    Two 'Being John Malkovich' and 'Arachnophobia'

    Malkovich because it was awful, Arachnophobia because after deciding that they were only film spiders and going to see it - my nerves after five minutes let me know otherwise.

    Heh, two films I love, figure...

    And no, walking out of a shit movie is far better than sitting and watching it. It's usually because mates dragged you along to see some new but shit big blockbuster...

    Never, but the closest I've got was The Simpsons Movie.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    NEVER... even if I hate it. It's only two hours of your life.

    Never left.

    I went to the loo during The Hulk (Eric Bana one). I did not think it was worth trying to hold out to the end as the film was rubbish. However I did return.

    Wish I had left during Ghost in The Shell 2 but I managed to survive to the end.

    If the film is rubbish the ending might still be brilliant. Arlington Road is a prime example as that is a boring film with an amazing ending. The ending is so good you forgive and respect the rest of the film.

    Closest for me was Congo. Drawing talking chimps and albino man eating gorillas. Never walked out on a film though. Too bloody expensive. Remember going to see revolver and at least three quarters of the audience had left before the last half hour. Awful.

    Evan Almighty - I'd have rather had my eyes removed from my socket and been skull fucked with a 12 inch cock than sit through the entire film.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I've done it a few times but can't remember any examples. Most of the time it was a film I went to see with friends but had no influence over what we were going to see. I've also walked out of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, went for a smoke and a wander around the shops out side and then back in just in time for the final credits.

    I've never walked out of a movie but I did fall asleep during Babylon AD and only woke up as the credits were rolling.

    An Ideal Husband.....utter shite.Me and the (then) Mrs went to the cinema just for the sake of going and this was the pick of a very bad bunch of films at the time.

    Wanted to leave during Pirates of the Caribbean 2 AND 3 cause I thought they were both woeful.

    Almost left during Cloverfield because they had the heating on FULL blast and that combined with the notorious shaky camera filming plus the fact I wasn't feeling too good anyway made me feel really ill.

    Never. Even if the film is rubbish, I watch it to the end.

    I've never done,and I'm pretty sure I never will. I can count the times I've turned a film off before the end on one hand (pretty sure it's only been twice, and only because I was so tired I had to go to bed). It's just not something I do, even if I've seen the film countless times already.

    Shakespear in Love back in 95-96 whenever it was (I so nearly walked) but it was a first date so had to sit and endure.

    Didn't even get a shag either................oh well.

    Only one, but that's because I walked into the wrong screening room.

    I walked out of Eyes Wide Shut. That was a truly terrible film.

    Spiderman 3, it was terrible.
  • Deleted user 17 July 2010 20:20:33
    I wouldn't have minded walking out of Spiderman 3! Total dross

    The only film I've walked out of was Antz, so I would've been 8 or 9 at the time (can't remember when the film was released). It was boring me to tears.

    Antz is genius!!!

    I fell asleep in Sideways between Monday and Thursday.

  • Deleted user 17 July 2010 20:23:55
    Yeah, I've heard that. I keep meaning to rewatch it, as chances are it was simply my young brain getting bored easily.
  • Deleted user 17 July 2010 20:24:48
    There is a film I watched today, I paid money or points (which is money) to watch it. It's, it's... well it's available on Zune. It's called "The Slammin' Salmon"

    Never watch it, don't look at it, burn it, delete it, pay them to remove it. Do anything!

    It's the worst comedy I've ever seen and yes, that includes Police Academy 6.

    Don't think I've ever walked out on a film at the cinema. Though I've felt like it, namely Transformers 2 (cos it's unadulterated shit) and Beethoven (because an annoying child behind was asking her mum what was happening every 3 seconds). I didn't walk out on either occasion- Transformers because it was at the Imax and I'd paid a fortune, plus my friend had brought a couple of his friends who I didn't know that well. One of them really liked Transformers. Beethoven- I was about 10 years old and my parents would have bollocked me.
