I remember when I was thirteen years old I had gone to the movies to see "A bug's life" by myself while my parents and my older sister went to see "Enemy of the state". I was doing good throughout the movie until they made Flik leave. When they did, I began to cry like crazy. I cried so loudly that I was kicked out of the theater by the cinema personnel and never got to see the rest of my movie. While me and my mom were in the car, two girls got out of the movie that I was kicked out of and said "That was a bad movie." which made me cry even more.  frown I had to wait five months to see the ending of "A bug's life"

So, I ask you this question: Have you ever been kicked out of a certain movie for being too rowdy or something?   confused

I nearly got the boot from Harry Potter for snapping on some little kids. Heres why: (skip this part if you dislike rants)

I didn't want to be there. I had picked the last 2 movies, so my girlfriend got to choose and we saw HP. We went with 2 other people, but the theatre was packed, and we had to sit in groups of 2 on different sides. We were in the very front row. My neck began to hurt from looking up. To top it off, I turned down a Leaf game in Buffalo to see it because I had agreed to that first. So I was in a bad mood, but trying to keep a cheery attitude by insulting the movie itself. The audience was what the makers would call responcive. Clapping, screaming, crying, etc. Then these girls get in an arguement/trivia contest about Harry Potter. Behind me. They get louder and louder, then they hit my head by accident. I turn around and look at them, and they are dressed in "hogwarts" robes. I stare them down (I have a creepy stare) and they shut up. I turn back around and they're like: Whats his problem? I turn back around and start not really yelling, but talking agrily. I swore and told them to shut there faces before I jammed their wands down their throats. (I cleaned that up bit). Then the usher comes... asks if theres a problem. I'm like: "Not anymore there isn't (turn around) right?" Silence.

I felt kinda bad, they were about 13 or 14, so they really should have known better. I didn't say anything to the mother who refused to take her crying baby into the lobby.

I was with some friends in the cinema watching Final Destination. 

When that guy in the movie stood next to the railroad, and a train passes, it hits a piece of metal, which jumps in his direction and cuts his head clean off. I was the only one in the theater roaring with laughter, while all the others had their hands or their eyes, or they were disgusted.
Man that was so predictable, and so gory it was funny.

I didn't get kicked out though.

That has happened to me too. In Spider-Man me and my friends found one part hilarious and were laughing our heads off. No one else did though.

Recently my cousin's and I went to go see a movie. One of them's 6 and says "Oh my God" fifteen times everytime a stupid joke comes by. Then another one's cell phone goes off and all I here is this:
"hey"
"OK"
"I'm in the theater"
"Yeah tell me later I can't talk right now"
"I'm in the theater(louder)"
"I'm hanging up now"
"I said I was hanging up"
...

I fell asleep during Rocky & Bullwinkle, sure I had only 3 hours of sleep the previous day but that's no excuse....... or at least that's what they told me after STRANGERS woke me up to tell me to stop snoring.

I thought it was hilarious & went back to sleep.

I laughed at quite a few scenes in final Destination.

I'm sick like that, I laughed for five full minutes after the bus scene.

When I saw "Die Another Day" over the weekend, I loudly booed the trailer of "Legally Blonde 2". So many people told me to shut up.

I usually do boo trailers if they deserve it, like "xXx".

I agree. Why would anyone get kicked out for laughing at Final Destination? The gory death scenes were pretty obviously intended to be funny. I liked the teacher's death scene the best.

Why you son of a. Nerds at the premiere of movies are funny. It's the screaming babies that I don't understand. Movie theaters are dark and cold and loud. What kind of idiot parent thinks a little baby would enjoy that?

Whenever I hear a baby crying, I "shhhh!!!" them as loud as I can. It's fun, and hopefully embarrasses the parents.

 laff We went to see harry potter two last thursday, and the cinema was packed. These two people were sitting on the steps next to us. Some guy gats called in the theatre. At least 3 times. He doesn't turn off his phone, he actually answers and talks on the phone every time. The third time was at the climax of the movie, and the stupid mofo next to us seemed to be oblivious of the row of people next to him (Me and my friends) loud-whispering 'shut the f**k up!' God I hate people like that. We gave him such evils.

Me and a friend went to see Monsters Inc, coz we're crazy. There were no other guys over 18 there who didn't have children. So we resolved to take a child to the next kids movie, so we did't look wierd enjoying it.

So we took my next door but one neighbours children, and ended up looking like one of those gay couples that want to adopt children.

So next time I see a kids film, I'm watching it alone. I won't look wierd or gay that way. That goes for videos too, due to the looks we got when we went to blockbuster, and rented The Emporers New Groove.

Or maybe I should stop watching films with Matt.

I got slung out of a film ages ago (circa 1991), but only coz I tried to get in without paying.

It was sooo long ago that I cannot remember which film it was.

I remember reading a story in which a pregnant woman started to go into labour 20 mins before the end of 'Titanic'. She stayed for the rest of it, didn't tell her husband until the end!

When I was 14, me and a friend went to see 'In Bed with Madonna' (rated 18). The film was about to start and then loads of staff burst in. We thought for a moment we were about to be chucked out and started panicking... but then they told us the projector had broken down and we'd have to see something else instead. The only other thing that was on was Hudson Hawk. *shudder* Foiled again!

One time a group of me and my mates went to see A.I, but two of had decided the film would be poor right from the start. We were going to watch it normally however, with no intention of being annoying little twats, but everything that anyone said was frickin hilarious. A Dr. Pepper advert at the start set us off, and the stupid movie did nothing to distract us. I guess we were those annoying little kids who loads of adults talk about who ruin their movie. Ahhh, well it was only that once.

Also, Im 14, and don't look old for my age or anything. One time, me and another small friend went to see a 15. They asked our age and our birthdate. Id got it all planned out, a birthdate which would make me a "young 15" (ie only just had my birthday). Anyway, I told the usher guy this date, and he goes "Doesn't that make you 14". Believing I was right, I argued with him that it made me 15. Eventually he let me in.

It was halfway through the movie when I realised I had actually basically told him I was 14. Just shows if you're confident enough with lies then theyre believable.

I date back weeks after I saw "A bug's life" I tried to see it again but it was sold out so me and my mom went to see "The Rugrats movie" Midway during the movie, something happens to Spike (the dog), or something like that and there's this two or three year old crying. I don't know how long he/she was crying for, but I was just about to go over to the kid and tell it to shut up before I went and told the manager.

I vaguely remember another one.
I was between 2 and 4 years old, and accompanied by my sister (who is 6 years older), and we went to see Disney's Alice in Wonderland. I think I started crying, and then we went outside. That 's all.

Andrea, you were 13 and started crying loudly at A Bugs' Life? When you're 13 there's this little thing called peer pressure. It keeps you from getting emotional in public.
I agree with Speli. That must've been some powerful drug.

I don't think I've ever cried during a movie.  I nearly cried when I realized that I had wasted six dollars and three and a half hours watching AI.

The first film I ever went to see was ET, when I was about 5 or 6 (not sure on the age). I distinctly remember NOT crying, even though lots of my friends did. Ha! Looooooosers.

Edit: The closest I've ever been to crying at the movies was at Scooby Doo. The worst film I've ever seen in my life. It was like the movie had sucked my soul right out of my body. Curse you, Scooby Doo!

I've never cried during a film before or walked out. BUT you can bet your ass that if me and my friends had gone to see 'Zoolander' we'd definately have walked out the cinema. We rented it for one of my friends birthdays to watch and it was soooooooo crap!! We switched it off about half an hour into it. Its one of the crappest films EVER!  hmpf
