I have never, ever walked out of a film before. But I have just walked out of The Terminal. I looked at my watch and only 40 minutes had gone. I survived until an hour in and decided to call it quits. It was depressingly bad from Spielberg, Hanks and the ever-brilliant John Williams too.

I'm interested, what's been so bad you've walked out? L'Homme du Train was close but I was with a lot of friends (who enjoyed it) so couldn't.

I walked out of S.O.B. a long time ago, but realized that I was an idot for doing that since loved it when I saw it later on HBO.

Lotsa people walked out of Open Water. I'm glad I stayed. I was shocked. I've never heard an audience so quite at the end of a movie....

I almost left The Terminal. CZJ was not in it enough to keep me entertained. The real reason I'm posting, though, is to say that I love MNIL's new avatar.<3

Oh NO! DGrant please give "Legends of The Fall" another chance. I love that movie especially in the fall. :)

I walked out of "American Beauty." Hate me if you must, call me uncultured and ignorant, but I really didn't like that movie. I do not need to be bludgeoned to death by the moral of a story, thank you.

It takes an awful lot to get me to walk out of a movie, because there's always a chance it could get better. Twelve Monkeys is a case in point. I HATED the first hour and then LOVED the rest of the movie. That said, I have walked out on two films: Mrs. Parker And The Vicious Circle was one, Amen was the other.

I did toy with the idea of walking out of The Terminal though, when I felt like I had been sat there for 6 weeks and looked at my watch to discover another hour still to go.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

Wow. Open Water is getting such a thumbs down here. I am seeing it friday night and I am really looking forward to it.

Open Water was just okay ... the nudity at the beginning grabbed the attention of the straight male audience members and then the guy got into bed and the double standard played out where everything for him was covered even though she was just completely naked ... so that was irritating.

Then once they were finally out there, I figured there would be some intelligent dialogue that would play out as is the case with these kinds of films, kinda like Phone Booth, where the dialogue remained interesting even though the entire movie took place in a phone booth. But, that didn't happen with Open Water. Very immature writing that was poorly delivered, as well. But since I had no idea that this was based on a true story and I had no idea that the end was gonna be what it was I, along with most of the remaining audience, was very shocked...

I almost walked out of Whale Rider. I don't care how artsy this movie is supposed to be, because in my mind it's way overrated and extremely boring.

I loved Dogville. Hard work but rewarding and the end was incredible.

I don't know... it may not be fair but, I kind of resent someone who's never even stepped foot in the U.S. directing a movie, and trying to make a profound statement, about it. Although that really doesn't have anything to do with what I didn't like about the movie. Just too slow and self-indulgent for my tastes. To me Von Trier comes off as someone who's overly impressed with himself. But... to each his own. That's what makes the world go 'round. Movies, like theatre, can be such a personal experience.

I would never pay 10 dollars and then walk out....I only go to movies that have gotten excellent reviews or get Oscars....But if you ask me what movies I fell asleep at....it has to be The Last of the Mohicans starring Daniel Day Lewis.....Two movies that I was disappointed with because I guessed the ending was American Beauty and Mystic River.....both fine movies, but the endings sucked.....No surprise

The last film I walked out of was ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. Christ, that was horrible.

Matt, You are so right! Hated that movie, but did sit there and take it because I was with friends.

One movie I DID walk out of a while back, was THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE. What a piece of crap.
