real stinker

I feel like one of those commercials...
Leaving the kids with In-laws while on a date....$0.00
Movie tickets....$18.00
Movie snacks...$7.00
Wanting to walk out, but you can't because she lost her wallet....PRICELESS

We had a great Thanksgiving with Shari's parents. However, while we were there Shari wanted to go see a movie. Our babysitter said that Twilight was great (I'm going to fire her), and since Shari loves the books, we were off.
I admit I have read the books. They are just okay, for me there was too much melodrama, "does he love me, wheres he at, I can't live without him, I want a bloodshake, blah, blah, cry, cry, calculated emotional response". Not worth reading again. It could be condensed to about 200 pages total.

The movie......HORRIBLE, it was so slow, I almost fell asleep, we were about to walk out when Shari said, "I lost my wallet!", so here I am 40 min into the movie scrambling to find her wallet so we can leave, I'm crawling on the floor desperately grabbing at shadows. Bumping seats, sorry, grabbing feet, sorry again.
Here it is!.. no, just some old popcorn.
Wait!, here's something...puddle of pop.
Whats this!....I think I'm going to vomit. Oh wait somebody already did, awesome!!!
Without luck I searched, without hope we stayed. Its bad enough to watch a movie you don't like, but to have to wait for the credits to finish so they can turn on the lights, miserable.

I think you could condense into about 20 pages or have a high school student write an essay about it. I would have just left and then ask for my money back or free passes to the theater. You need to capitalize on the time like, okay now you get to hear me rub a ballon or scratch a blackboard for 1hr and 30min. Creeeech SCraaaaaach and you could say "it doesn't bother me cause I guess I am causing the horrible pain."
