Speakers Corner: The LF Forum > Worst Film Watched In The Cinema?

What film was so bad that it meant you couldn't actually sit till the end?

Mine was the Robin Williams film Toys, I was 14 and with a mate so we both probably wanted a dumb action film rather than....... well whatever Toys is supposed to be. Even now i have caught bits of the film on TV and it still seems as appalling as ever - though not bad enough to walk out of the cinema from.

Traditionally I am like 'I PAID FOR THIS I AM GOING TO DAMN WELL WATCH IT TILL MY EYES BLEED' when it comes to film. Although with Avatar i was so bored i wish i had left and nailed my head to a moving Van instead.

There have been a few films I've really not enjoyed but I've always made it to the end. I remember watching this Jennifer Lopez movie called 'Angel Eyes' - I have no idea why I was watching this in the cinema but I wanted to rip my seat out of the floor and throw it at the screen.

I had to look up 'Angel Eyes' had never heard of it before, did that seriously make it into cinemas? - it has 'straight to DVD' written all over it. Didn't you almost walk out of 'Bruno' the movie?

I think i had trouble making it through the entire of Crank 2 - i loved the first Crank but the second one was a total mess - cept for a few brief moments of genius.

I was close to walking out on XXX (Vin Diesel). Not a fan.

XXX is definitely a 'check your brain in at the door' film. but I'm surprised you expected anything less.

Mind you, I somehow thought I was going to enjoy 'The Expendables'...

Oh yes! I DID walk out of Bruno. It wasn't my choice though - I wasn't enjoying the movie but the people I was with found it so offensive that I had to leave with them. Not defending the movie but I paid for it so wasn't happy that we left before it was over.

I like Ali G, Borat and Bruno in sketch form - but not so in full length movie format. Bruno the film did sound pretty bad.

I liked Enter the Void, but part of me did want to leave early as it dragged on forever!

Have only walked out of one film and that was 'I love you Phillip Morris'. Huge fan of both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor but my god it was awful!! Started off ok and I just thought was gonna be a crazy film but Ewan can just not do an american accent and I thought both of them were just awful in it.
We went to Leicester Sq cinema too so was £20 each not including popcorn!!!!

I must admit for some reason the thought of Jim Carey and Ewan McGregor as lovers in a buddy comedy bromance did put me off, but then i thought - 'hell these are two actors i respect - i'm sure they can pull this off', as you say though McGregor seems to forget how to act and Carey just doesn't seem to work in that role. It's a shame though as if the casting had been better it could have worked.

Twenty bucks though! Ouch

the Fantastic Four films are abysmal. As a massive FF fan, I was shocked at how poor they were. they made roger cormans low budget early 90's versions seem not-so-bad!

I think green lantern has a lot of potential in this catagory too. check out what the onion have to say. It's satire, but its probably not far off the mark!
