Wouldn’t it be great to go sit in a movie theater again, load up on popcorn and soda, and watch a film?
Remember those days?
Also, do you remember the really dumb things that people sitting around you always say? It never fails!
No matter where you sit, a dummy will find you, sit by you, and will make ridiculous comments throughout the movie. Ugh…it really drives me nuts.
But these examples are funny because they didn’t happen to me! People shared the dumbest things they’ve ever heard folks say at the movies and they are pretty entertaining.
1. Speak American!
These guys sound cool.
I still remember seeing Kung Fu Hustle in theaters and 20 minutes into the movie 2 rednecks stood up and said out loud “We didn’t come to a theater in AMERICA to have to read!” Everyone stared at them as they left and we all laughed at them afterwards.

2. YOU were the dumb one.
Well, at least it was funny.
I was drunk when I saw Brokeback Mountain in the theater. When Heath & Jake see each other for the first time on screen, it was really quiet with sexual tension until I loudly said “MMM-HMM!”
Everyone in the audience burst out laughing because they were thinking it too! 😂

3. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Actually…no, it doesn’t.
I went to the midnight screening of Watchmen and people were pronouncing ‘Rorschach’ in every way known to man. 10 minutes in to the film and they were all suddenly feeling very foolish. “Rosh-a-rock” is the funniest one I remember, from a guy in full cosplay lecturing his gf.

4. Little fella.
They obviously weren’t up on this stuff.
Went to go see the hobbit and an old couple was sitting in front of me who had clearly never seen LoTR. Sméagol came on the screen and the husband goes “awe who’s this little fella?” I’ll never forget it

5. Oh, sorry.
Saw Lord of the Rings and through the whole movie someone behind me narrated FUCKING EVERYTHING. Shush a couple times… after the movie I see it was a blind person with someone there to help them follow the movie. https://t.co/v1KJXNoeRx

6. That’s odd…
I’d like to know what they were referring to, also.
My mother and I went to see Sideways. There were two older women in front of us. Right before the lights went down, one leaned over to the other and said “I hope there aren’t too many toilets in this one.”
I still want to know what film she was referring to.

7. Wrong movie.
Someone was pretty disappointed.
Opening day of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, as the WB logo shows, a kid *hollers* from the front seat, “THIS AIN’T BIG MAMA’S HOUSE 2!?”
Honestly better than anything that actually happened in that terrible, terrible movie.

8. What did you expect?
Oh, get over it.
When I saw Bohemian Rhapsody, two dudes in the theatre were loudly shocked to see men kiss each other on screen. They let out a burst of noise and one said, “I guess it was the ’70s!”

9. It’s just too darn quiet.
Have you guys seen A Loud Place yet?
When I went to go watch A Quiet Place, the couple a few seats down from me left angerliy 10 mins into the movie because it was too quiet. pic.twitter.com/U49XK8TzZU

10. Not a fan of the cat.
And he wanted everyone to know about it.
The old man at the end of Captain Marvel who loudly said “I DON’T LIKE THAT CAT!”

11. Ahhh. Never heard of it.
That’s kind of impressive.
At the end of The Great Gatsby, the words “Based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald” flashed onscreen.
Guy in front of me turns to his wife and goes “Ohhh. It was a novel!”

12. Did they not know what movie they were seeing?
Seem a little strange…
saw Ford v. Ferrari and boomers behind us kept an ongoing narration wildly misinterpreting obvious plot points (“boy, bet THAT guy’s out of a job now!” after Iacocca’s speech to Ford). midway through they suddenly/loudly realized there “sure are a lot of OLD CARS in THIS movie!”

Now it’s your turn.
In the comments, please tell us the dumbest thing you’ve ever overheard at the movies.
Thanks in advance!
