I went and saw the Spidy 3 flick last night. Movie theater was almost full except for the neck brace seats so me and my friend sat in the back row. It was hot as hell in there and of course, I had the pleasure of sharing my immediate surroundings with an infant.
First of all, why would you bring an infant to the theater? If you can’t afford a baby sitter then go catch a matinee and spent the money you save on someone to watch your damn kid. Do you really expect the child to be quiet during a 2.5 hour movie? Waiving some fucking puppet at her did not work and of course the genius did not think to bring a damn pacifier.
This all takes place in the row right in front of me a few seats to the right. There were two women, two guys, the infant and a 3 or 4 year old kid. Not only did the baby cry for a lot of the movie, the kid was talking a lot of the time, as were the adults in addition to playing with their cell phones.
I cannot believe the people right behind them did not say anything or the ones in front whose seat kept getting banged by the baby seat. When the baby kept crying I made a comment or two and the lady finally took the kid for a walk, but this was 40 minutes into the movie. Me and my friend were so pissed and it took every ounch of self-restraint to keep my composure.
Then the behavior spread like a plague and the people behind them whose movie was ruined started checking cell phones and goofing off. I made another general comment about this movie being ruined but the fuckers of course had no response. When the movie was over I was going to ask the guy for my twenty bucks back but instead I did a serious Goosfraba and waited for a minute or so. Neither one of the adults even looked in my direction so I walked away.
So what would you have done? The people obviously were too fucking ghetto to speak rationally to and that would have likely led to an altercation. No problem there but I was with someone and that would have been disrespectful and embarassing to her.
Plus, am I going to beat up this fucking low life in front of his three year old daughter? What would that have made me? Going to get an usher seemed gay and would have taken a good 10 minutes. Moving was not an option since it was full and I was not about to sit on the front row. I guess we could have left and asked the theater for a refund but why should I have to leave?
