    I'm seeing a lot of reviews of Zoolander 2 where people say 'I left midway through the movie it was so bad' etc. Is this just the equivalent to Howard Stern fans 'driving off the side of the road'?
    I've sat through a lot of bad movies, and after you spend your money, what's the point of leaving in the middle?

    Because you've got better things to do than watch something that's really unenjoyable.

    Yes. that's why theaters should let you smoke weed in their lobbies.

    On that note I am at the noon show of Kung Fu panda with my kid. Just went to the lobby to take a leak and on the way back I noticed "How to be single" and "Zoolander" were playing. I popped my head in both. Zoo lander had maybe 10 people and HTBS was completely empty. How does Hollywood flop so bad so often? Clearly everyone has realized they are going to be prices of shit.

    Multi screen cinemas (for jumping around) make it easy and with todays shit films, a way to get your monies worth. I must have seen parts of every movie rel as d l st y ar.

    Only once, because I had to leave. Even if it's a shit movie, I always stay and watch the whole thing.

    I've fallen asleep during a couple movies that were pretty crappy, like that POS "Mission To Mars".

    No. I have a thing in my brain where by if I start to watch something, anything, I need to watch until the end. Shitty shows, movies etc. If I spend 5min at the start, I need to see the end.

    When the Exorcist was playing we saw it in a theater that was "urban". When Linda Blair's head did the 360 turn the audience gasped. Then a black guy stands up and proclaims "Dayum. I ain't watchin' this sheet!" and left. He practically got a standing ovation.

    Saw the 4 oclock Zoolander yesterday after the 2 oclock Deadpool.

    Deadpool was packed. I was one of two people in Zoolander and it was shit, but I watched the whole thing
