Worst Movie Ever

OK, so the movie wasn't actually the worst, I even enjoyed it. It was, however, the worst movie going experience I've ever had. We went to see Transformers Saturday night because we had free tickets from KMart. We had to buy tickets early, then go back to the theater to wait in line for nearly an hour to get a seat. Once in the theater, we found good seats and just waited. Of course, we forgot to bring our own snacks, so we spent $25 on our free movie, but that was our own fault. The movie finally started and we watched for 2 1/2 hours. Then, just as it was getting intense and was probably 10-15 minutes from the end, the projector broke. The theater went dark. People were all yelling and wondering what was happening. Then the manager and a police officer came in and gave everyone "rain checks" to see another movie or watch that one again. It was already midnight and we had to pick up Sophie or I would have stayed and demanded my money back. Then I remembered we didn't actually give them money, so I got over it and we went home. We still haven't seen the end of the movie and will be using our rain checks for something else, probably Harry Potter next month. Pete is looking for a copy of it to download so we can at least see the end. We were very irritated that night and disappointed that we sat through that long of a movie only to miss the very end.


  1. Kevin and all the boys are at Transformers right now. I opted out to keep Tzipi. Your luck sound like ours. The last time that happened to us was at Boltz 3-D. We had been there about 20 minutes when the projector blew. They offered us our money back or a rain check. We got our money back and went back later. That has happened to us at least four times and it is very annoying, especially when you don't get to see the end.

  2. Life is filled with little things that drive us crazy. I think that is the reason I like to stay at home most of the time these days. I can avoid crazy people and crazy situations more than I can when I am out there "among them".

    Talk about a bummer! Just before the end of the movie.
