    I always feel a mixture of pity and disdain for the men going to see these films with women. I also figure that they better not be married, because if you marry a woman and she still makes you see that, you are like a battered spouse.

    Maybe I misspoke. I have a very skewed view of the world sometimes.

    it got 11% approval rating on rotten tomatoes :jj:

    "The Host lacks quality acting and any hint of a decent story. The result is a sci-fi film with no science and a romantic film with no romance. In other words, it's the dullest 2 hours imaginable."

    I wish I could find the prank call where that woman on the anorexic help line thinks he's calling himself Sheriff Levy.

    We get stuff from Redbox so only a dollar has to be spent on all of the awful Jonah Hill movies I want to see.

    I tried the "let's wait until it comes out on redbox" line...didn't work.

    It says it's by the author of Twilight right on the poster......that wasn't enough of a "suck" clue for ya'? My wife likes some of these shit movies as well, which is fine, but the good thing is if she asks if I want to go I just make a sour-puss face and she asks her niece instead. Sometimes I have to bite the bullet but tradeoffs are part of a relationship.

    My sister made me go see every turd movie that ever existed and she thought they were so great, like Princess Diaries, Legally Blonde, etc. I even had to sit through the James Franco made for TV James Dean movie with her so I can't stand any of these love story movies.

    I knew it was going to suck..been dreading it for weeks..but sometimes you have to make sacrifices in a relationship. Plus now she has no excuse when Anchroman 2 comes out..I can use this as a bargaining chip :evil:

    Yes, but I did get some peanut M&Ms to soften the blow to my man card.

    That sounds so painful, like you're both going to see movies you hate. You could go alone or something.

    We're going to see Evil Dead this weekend. I gave her an out but she opted to go. I sucked it up and saw Britney Spears and she was shell shocked through Rammstein......at least I got to see hot broads dancing around in schoolgirl outfits. :toptip:

    I just remembered why my husband never pressures me into seeing films he wants to see. He made me see March of the Penguins and when they started mating I freaked out and left the theater. Please disregard anything I've posted in this thread.
