What's the stupidest or craziest thing you've seen or heard while watching a movie? For me, while watching the beginning of Episode I, some guy shouted "HELL YEAH!" when the Lucasfilm Logo appeared on screen. Then someone else said "Here come the letters".

Also, when I was watching Resident Evil, and Mila Jovovich was just standing there with a blank stare at the camera. I heard a guy whisper to his girlfriend "Wow, it must be cold in there." and heard a slap.

Hmmm lots of easy ones for me, I have cheared outloud when I first saw the Starship Troopers trailer, lots of killer bugs.  smile

I also laughed hystarically throughout most of Anaconda.

Recently at X-men 2 there were people who dressed up (I went to the midnight showing) One was dressed like Smurfette (read bad Mystique costume)

I went to see a midnight showing when they re-released the original Star Wars in theaters.  Some guy was there in a full Chewbacca (sp?) costume.

I went to Identity just over a week ago and at the part in the laundry room when the guy is just looking at the washing machine some woman let out a super high pitched scream. The character hadn't even reached for the door to the machine to open it and nothing had happened.

I went to go see "The Ring," and unfortunately, also picked the same time to go that about 100 teenage girls also decided to go. They all screamed for about 90 minutes straight, it was very annoying. And, where there are teenage girls, there are teenage boys, so a bunch of them were trying to act all macho and kept cracking jokes through the entire film. One kid's cell phone went off about 3 or 4 times, and he actually had the gall to answer and chat away while the movie was going on. After the 4th call, some guy in the audience got up, snatched his phone, and threw it through the air towards the front of the theater. Everyone clapped. It was priceless.

Also, a friend of mine was working as a theater manager when episode one came out, and he invited about 200 of his "friends" to see it at a midnight showing. At the end, everyone booed the film and threw food and cups at the screen, which didn't make him too happy, since he had to stay and clean it all up.

This happened way back in 1980, at the first showing of "The Empire Strikes Back".  It was at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL, a beautiful 1920's vintage movie palace.  The place had 1600 seats, and they were all sold.

As each character appeared for the first time, the applause was thunderous.  Except for Princess Lea.  When she made her first appearance, some guy in the balcony yelled "biiitch!", and the entire audience rolled on the floor in hysterical laughter.  Funniest thing I ever saw in a theatre.

Once someone's cell phone went off and he just let it keep ringing so someone said "Turn that shit off!"   laff

When Belle said "I love you" to the beast in Beauty and the Beast someone said "YES!", like they weren't expecting it.   roll eyes

Many years back i was walking by the cinema and i saw a HUGE line of girls cueing up outside, so I asked one of them why they where there... and she said to me "we're going to see FREE WILLY"

ok... ok... no that didnt happen. But not much happens that i can remember. Oh yeah, when i went to see titanic some woman had a seizure and the movie had to be stopped while the paramedics came in to sort her out. maybe she was epileptic or maybe she was gagging at leo's poor acting?

Im sure there's more, i'll have a think and post back later...

I was watching the third Austin Powers film, and at the part where Austin is on Mini-Me's shoulders some jackass laugh out loud, "He's on Mini-Me's shoulders!"  I think the most annoying thing about that was the fact that I didn't say it first.

During The Sum of All Fears I was making my usual snide, heckling comments when some guy nastily asked me, "Are you going to talk through the whole movie?"  The guy must have had super sensitive ears, because I always whisper my comments.  I immediately retorted, "No, just through all of the quiet, important parts."

Whenever I'm with my pal in the cinema, we always shout:
"HERE COMES TWO!!"
when the countdown comes up.

Even when his girlfriend stopped him once, he shouted, "THERE GOES TWO!!"

My best friend and I saw Spider-Man the day it came out and I'd never so much as glanced at one of the comic books.  At the end, when Peter tells MJ he can't be with her, I wasn't expecting it, so I go, "Omigod."  Apparently, I said it too loud 'cos a bunch of people turned around and shushed me.

I also have the habit of adding snide remarks throughout silly movies.  I think a couple moms told me to shut up when I was making cracks about The Lizzie McGuire Movie.  It was just too tempting a target though.  big grin

When I went to see orange county this drunk guy came in and started yelling remarks at the screen, he sat around replying to the actors with remarks like "lets have sex" or "shut up bitch". He was more entertaining then the movie.

When I had to go see the Pokemon movie with my little bro, this guy in his 20's was running down the aisle shouting "Pikachu gives me a WOODY!!!" I kid you not.

At the end of the first LOTR film:
One lady: "That wasn't much of an ending!"
Another lady: "No, no, it's a trilogy. This one did the first two books, and the next move will do the last two books."

hoho, asianlightning. Damn I wish I was there to see that. There's nothing worse than having a group of irritating teenagers trying to impress each other in the back row, unless you are the teenagers of course.

At Goldmember: The joke about Austin being a Master Baiter cracked everyone up, except me and Vicki. Then when everyone else stopped laughing, we got the joke, together and started laughing loudly while everyone else was quiet. It was classic, though you probably had to be there.

Another Vicki story: At another filfm during the opening ads her phone went off. She rooted through her bag and switched it off after being asked to by another customer. Then up pops the ad reminding everyone to switch their phones off, complete with ringtone - her ringtone. So she starts rooting through her bag apologising loudly to everyone else trying to switch what she thought was her phone off. We were cruel and let her figure it out for herself!

Another phone one. When the ad came on that had a mobile going off and voices saying "Turn it off", I joined in by shouting "Turn the phone off". I blended in nicely. Ah more little things.

I was at an animation festival last year, and I made the mistake of buying a ticket to see some new stuff from CalArts. This one short goes on for 17 minutes, and it was an animation of a toilet flushing (I kid you not). When it ended, no one's clapping, it's dead silent, and this guy says "That was fucking crap". The entire audience then bursts into applause and gives him a standing ovation   smile

I just went to see "Bend it Like Beckham" a few days ago, and besides the group I was with (about 5 people), the only other folks in the theater was this family of Indian people, around 6 of em. Halfway through the movie, they all started dancing around, it was pretty odd.

One of my friends that went to see Episode 2 said that during the Yoda vs. Count Dooku fight he heard a guy say "Am I the only one who orgasmed from that?!"

Way back when I saw Deep Blue Sea, someone from the back rows said "Punch him in the nose, punch him in the nose!!" during a struggle between a man and a shark. Then he said "Man, I told you he should've punched him in the nose." That was pretty annoying.

Me and my friends went to go and see Spider-Man in a mainly empty theatre. When the Green Goblin died at the end (I think) and said "Oh..." we all burst out laughing. It was brilliant  smile

I'm the source of great amusement for my friends when we go to the movies, I'm one of those people who just can't keep their mouths shut, I make loud comments all throught the movie, I'm actually pretty annoying.

The following comments come from me watching X-Men 2 just last night:

Alright, so starting into the movie, someone's phone rings, everyone hates it, I'm fairly resonable at this point and don't shout, but there were idiots that kept going on and on about it so I yelled "Shut up about the fucking phone!" which got a bit of a response, but they did all shut up after it.

Mistiques first appearance: "Damn I love that hot blue smurf bitch"

"That's rough, fiiine southern girl like that and he can't even kiss her"

Cyclops gets beaten up by the chick with metal fingernails "Heheh, he got the shit beaten out of him by a girl" (this earned me some pretty dirty looks actually, so in order to level things out I sez ) "I love a girl who could beat the shit out of me, funny little thing of mine (I don't think it helped)

There was more, but those were the most offensive to my fellow movie patrons I think, my friend keep throwing popcorn at me and I was always laughing at really inappropriate bits, yes, I'm one of those.

Also, I have to include these cause they're my friends favourites from me yelling and carrying on in movie theatres:

At the start of 'Ali' we sent Charlie (our bitch) to fetch some snacks from the lobby, which i was generously paying for, he comes back with 2 bags of lollies that cost 8 bucks, I yelled at Charlie, very loudly "8 fucking dollars, this cost eight fucking dollars?! Sonsabitches!!" Or something to that affect, the loudness and astounding amount of swearing as I continued to rant makes this one a family favourite.

Finally a favourite of both mine and his, I forget what we were seeing, but one of the previews was for "Spy Games" anyway as they usually do the preview goes on with all bits n pieces then the name pops up at the end.

At this point through the credits on the screen being silent and a freak occurance where despite the fact it's only previews the entire theatre has fallen silent, except for me, I turn to my friend and say in a normal tone "Man, what a fucking shit name."

Somehow the entire theatre hears this and bursts out laughing, we also must have been seeing something M cause there were also parents with kids who were glaring daggers at me, a reaction I seem to get a lot whereever I go.

Some of you should really try open mic nights or some form of comedy club. You know, where you can attempt to be funny and not annoy the hell out of everyone else in the cinema..

The most annoying incident I've ever been witness to was when a group of us went to see some movie, which I can't remember the name of now. It was like towards the end of it's cinema run, so it was just our group of four, a few couples and a bunch of early teens with squeaky toys they got from a happy meal or something. You can probably figure out what happened.

Needles to say, we got them thrown out.   big grin

 laff Thats absolute gold! I wish I'd been there to see that.

Nothing funny like that has ever happened to me. When I'm with my friends I tend to talk a lot about that particular film with them. I whisper though so as not to annoy  smile

During the premiere of Deep Impact, after the asteroid hits, I yell "That's gotta hurt!".

It premiered one night after the hilarious Seinfeld episode that spawned the phrase, too. It was great.

Also, while I was seeing Big Daddy, some jackass threw two bottles at the screen.

I was at a player screeing of X2 at work the night before it opened. I took a friend of my mom's 'cuz she loves anything to do with X-Men, Spider-Man etc. During any big battle sequence she world claped her hands a couple times and stamp her feet (on the metal bars in front of us, so it echoed)

In the same screening we had a trailer for the Sinabd movie starring Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The people up in the projection booth had spliced it together wrong and the picture was upside down and the trailer played backwards (including the audio.) It was pretty funny hearing words like "Skrowmaerd", "Ttip Darb" and "Senoj-Atez Enirehtac"

When I saw Scooby Doo, some kid older than me left to go somewhere. As he left, he kicked the back of a seat in the theater. This was before the movie started, I think.

This will only be funny to people in the US for the most part:

If you're ever been to a movie in the US you've probably been to a Regal Cinemas. They're a huge corporation and they suck. Anyway, at the beginning of some movie (I can't remember what one), they were playing the whole "I'm on the Regal movie-coaster, whooshing past snack food! Put trash in specified containers? OK! Wheee!!!" video they always do.

When it got to the part where an unpopped popcorn kernel explodes right in front of the "movie-coaster" (rather anti-climatically, I might add), some girl in the audience just yelled "Oh my GOD!!!" like it was a complete, startling surprise. The entire theater cracked up. It was hilarious.

Actually, the only theaters in my city are owned by Carmike Cinemas, a large company mainly in the southeast, run out of Atlanta. They have the Carmike 10 and the Wynnsong 12. (That's rather confusing because you can say that you're going to the Carmike theater. To a person who's not from the area, they'd say, "Which?", when to a local, that clearly implies the Carmike 10.)
I was in a Regal Cinema years ago (before the movie-coaster - they had the button-pushing robot on a spaceship - and Carmike has eliminated that crap so they can show us 30+ minutes of previews, damn bastards).

I'm glad to see that there are some pockets of resistance left, fighting the good fight in the face of the insatiable behemoth that is Regal Cinemas.

MUST EXPAND... MUST FIND NEW MARKETS... MUST RAISE LARGE POPCORN PRICES TO $5.00 A BAG...

Argggh! They keep saying "overhead is going up, business is bad, wah wah wah, let's raise prices..." Get more good movies, and then maybe business will get better. Not this "Adventures of Pluto Nash" crap.

And 30 minutes of previews! Money-sucking WHORES!

Well, ten minutes of commercials (like for the Marines or Powerade featuring The Matrix or Coca-Cola), then twenty minutes of previews. Not to mention that the slide show before they start rolling the film is entirely ads. It used to have movie trivia, but now it's all ads.

When I was in New Hampshire, I went to a (the only) movie theater in Hanover, NH, which was independent and non-profit. There was thirty-second preview. That made me really question Carmike's tactics.

ever see trigger happy TV? They do crazy shit all the time. for example, in a thearter there is a message ad with a snake that warns you about pick pockets, then you see this huge 13 foot long snake costume with a guy in it crawl out from under the screen and procede up the aisle, as many patrons notice and are confused.

they also have two people in rabbit costumes that fuck everywhere, once this was shown in a movie thearter, funny funny stuff.

Anyone ever seen the SNL skit where the audience waited 2 weeks for the previews to be over? The ushers locked them in and everyone ended up killing the weak for food.
