Walked out of a really bad movie in the 80's with Carol Burnett about a wedding.

Fell asleep in Evita with Madonna--woke up for the army men shower scene.

Kewl. Ellen has a "dirty" side to her. Whoda thunk it?

I guess I have seen Under Siege about 150+ times.

I never fall asleep in movies.

I have never made it to the end of Top Gun. What a waste of Kodak. Smile

First time really dropping off was the Tim Burton 'Invaders from Mars' film.

Since then... I'll be nice and say it happens often. all the coins I've dropped here

I'll bet I've seen Groundhog day with Bill Murray at least 30 times.

Fell asleep in the middle of Titanic. When I woke up everyone was in the water. Smile

Seen Rounders and PoolHall junkies about 50 - 60 timea each.
Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction 20-30 times each.

Fell asleep in Titanic.
Walked out of Iron Monkey and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Also cried during those movies cause I wasted $5.50 to walk in and be disgusted and then walk out.

I've probably seen The Shawshank Redemption a dozen times or more.

Just recently walked out on The Mexican. [Ooops, I had to edit this post. I didn't walk out on The Mexican. I walked out on Once Upon a Time in Mexico. I guess I'm getting old and confused.]

Can't remember ever falling asleep in a movie theater.

Seen lots:
Happy Gilmore
Die Hard 1
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Never walked out of a movie (why walk out when theatres are a great place to sleep!?)

Fallen asleep at a few movies, but to be honest it is Orchestra's that I cant seem to stay awake through. Been to a few, and never made it through without falling asleep! I think its because it is so easy to get immersed in the sound, and dozzing with that surrounding you is just great!
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are

Saw the original Star Wars 98 times in the Theatre, probably as many time on Video

Nearly walked out of Moulin Rouge but thought it might get better, I was wrong.

Fell asleep during Fellowship of the Ring but that's fitting as Tolkiens books put me to sleep as well.

The original StarWars about 200 times and counting. Fellowship of the Ring about 20 times. Loved the Commitments, but I've only watched it five times or so.

Walked out of the second Matrix movie. Fell asleep during Titanic.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (~15)
Scrooge (~15)
Cinema Paradiso (~7)

I don't fall asleep anywhere other than my bed (unless I'm ill).

Never walked out on a film either. However, the closest I got was Revenge (Kevin Costner 1990) and Wild Orchid (Mickey Rourke 1990).

The film that I've seen most people walk out of was Akira Kurasawa's Dreams. There were only about 40 people in the cinema to start off and about 5 of us at the end!

The Wizard of Oz ~ 20 times

Never walked out - but watched a lot of people walk out of the opening night showing of The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover. I'll admit that I felt the bile rising in my throat a couple of times during that one, but I was able to tough it out.

Fell asleep during the 3rd Austin Powers movie Goldmember.

The Cook... (phew) Great Movie. Forgot all about it.
That's a difficult one to watch but I certainly liked it.
Sort of in line with Resevoir Dogs.

I've seen The Sting 30+ times and about 20 in the theatre, 10 on video. Hand Crafted Magic

I never thought to actually count.
The ones I have seen numerous times and can still sit down and watch are:
Happy Gilmore
Dumb and Dumber
Orange County
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Terminator 1 or 2
Planes Trains and Automobiles
Midnight Run
Rat Race
Austin Powers 1 or 2
Saving Private Ryan
Sleepy Hollow
That's about it, I guess. I have all of these movies and still watch them now and then.

I don't even want to know how many times I've seen Raging Bull, Psycho, or a lot of Woody Allen's movies.

I walked out of the Spice Girl movie and fell asleep during the first half of the Tomb Raider.

I do have a funny account of Raising Arizona. I saw it in the theater and immediately went home and told a friend about it. He decided to go see it the next day so I went and saw it again. The next day his girl called and he decided to take her to the movies... to see Arizona... and he wanted me to tag along... I did. Day after that his girl wants to go out again and... you guessed it... we all saw Arizona again. She calls the day after that and when she hears we want to see it again she stays home and we see it again. Smile

I was in the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast for 10 years! (We stand in front of the screen and act out the movie, in costume, with props...) So you do the math, every Friday and Saturday night for 10 years (give or take a few missed shows) and that is a lot of times to see a movie.

I think I have seen the original 1966 Batman movie more times than is really healthy.

I walked out on Jerry Maguire... what a stinker.

Yikes that's a lot of times Firedice, to dance to the "Timewarp" ...again. I should think after 10 years..must be a record and may definately warp some people but then again I stand corrected. Smile (didn't dance it for 10 years so that helped)

I've been lucky to live in one of the only areas with a drive in!!! Never been able to stay awake for the triple feature however- 6 hrs of movies including intermissions..a bit long. Smile
