    Really.

    So what qualifies as entertaining to you?

    I can' say that I actually have. I want to say there a couple I should have, but just didn't. I don't to the movies often (it's a huge expense to us because babysitter, etc.), so we don't do movies as date night, and when we do, I've watched previews and am usually emotionally invested before I hit the theater. I don't think I've ever picked a movie based on the poster or just someone's word of mouth.

    I was a kid when Howard the Duck came out, and I knew it stunk then, but I was at work with my sister. She managed the theater, so I would just tag along some days. As an adult, I would no doubt leave. Krull would be another in this same scenario.

    As an adult, I really contemplated leaving Event Horizon. I just didn't know what I was in for, and wasn't prepared.

    Honorable mention: My dad lamented about leaving both Dune (he's no sci-fi or fantasy fan, I have no idea how he ended up there) and Ishtar.

    Yes really,


    I forgot to include documentaries with books and songs.

    Cinima wise the list would pretty wide and "shallow";)
    Ultimately I am much more entertained by the experiential ( Think " I Lived" by OneRepublic )
    Back to "hook in mouth" that situation and getting that photo .. now that was entertaining , and educational and intentionally getting into that situation, is what I consider a "commitment", walking out of movie ? Not so much.

    Not a movie, but a play...The Producers.
    Garbage on so many levels. We left at intermission.
    I can't imagine the Mel Brooks movie version being any better.

    I almost walked out of A Good Day to Die Hard. Only because it was IMAX and we were too close to the screen. I got vertigo 3 times. If it weren't for the rum we snuck in to pour into our Cokes, I might not have made it.

    The remake of the Robert Mitchum classic "Cape Fear." Horrible remake even with De Niro.

    That's hilarious. I thought my wife and I were the only ones! A few times at business dinners the subject has come around to 'what is the worst film you ever saw?' I have had pretty violent reactions when saying what I thought about this film...

    I only go to see movies I'm really interested in, so even if it doens't meet expectations it's still good enough to finish. That said I've abandoned friends and roommates who were watching movies I disliked or had no interest in plenty of times. Waiting the duration of the run time for a movie you hate is one of the worst ways to spend your free time.

    When my younger son was, well, younger, he wanted to see the Adam Sandler film The Waterboy. We left very early. Though I've sat through Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy was just aggressively stupid and irredeemably offensive.

    That was the movie that came to my mind too (I didn't walk out on it, but it was the one I came closest to walking out of).
