1.Yul. It was about 1981 or so. NYC. My friend and I were meeting my boyfriend (now my dh), his best friend and his best friend's girlfriend in Manhattan. Best friend and his girlfriend lived in Manhattan and said they'd come up with our plans. Imagine our disappointment when the plans in NYC ON A SATURDAY NIGHT were to go see a movie. Our disappointment deepened, however, when we got to the movie they were so excited about and it was in Turkish about prisoners on a weekend furlough. The movie was even worse than expected. It was horrid. To add insult to injury, the best friend fell asleep! The best moment was when the guy behind us stood up about 1 hour into what seemed like a 6 hour marathon and yelled, "THIS IS THE WORST MOVIE EVER!" Best friend fell off his seat. THAT was fun.
2. The Weatherman with Nicholas Cage from a few years ago. It was my friend's turn to pick the movie. She's a huge Cage fan. Horrible movie. Depressing. Exploitive of the girl actress. Depressing. Did I mention it was depressing? I wanted to leave. She kept insisting, "It has to get better." Uh, no, it doesn't. At the end of the movie, the guy next to me said, "I don't know why that guy did NOT commit suicide because after watching this movie, I want to." My friend announced that she had forfeited all future rights to pick movies as a result.
