In case you’ve never seen it, Jerry Maguire is a good movie but it’s also a pretty long one. It clocks in at 2 hours and 20 minutes. I remember when I saw it in the theater and about two hours into it, a scene faded to black and some guy sitting by me stood up and exclaimed “It’s about time!” and he walked out of the theater.
And he never came back. And the movie wasn’t over yet.
I think that probably qualifies as the stupidest thing I’ve heard while watching a movie in the theater.
Let’s see what other people had to say about this!
1. She was in for a real treat.
Get ready to have nightmares!
I saw Midsommar last summer in the theater. Right before the movie started, some girl said to her friend “I hope this isn’t gonna be one of those gory, weird movies like Hereditary”

2. Hahahaha. Amazing.
Probably should’ve read up on this one before you saw it.
I went to see 127 hours at the cinema. Part way through a lady in the row behind me said “I hope he’s not going to be stuck behind that rock for the whole film”.

3. I thought they were the same guy!
Well, now you know.
My wife and I went to see Fast and Furious 27 or whatever, with no context, and about halfway through the movie, The Rock and Vin Diesel had a scene together and she audibly said “Those are two different people?”

4. Creepy kid…
Who also might be a cannibal.
i went to see a screening of the muppets for their anniversary or whatever and this little girl like 4 rows back yelled “when i marry miss piggy, and she dies, i will eat her” while kermit was singing

5. I see it!
You better tell everyone.
Once during one of the Paranormal Activity movies, while some paranormal activity was going down someone in the first row yelled “you see that?!?!” and someone in the back row answered “yeah I see it!!”

6. Oh, boy…
Maybe she wasn’t paying attention.
I just did this entire thing with my daughter watching Charlotte’s web for the first time.
Genuinely enjoyed the movie, but turned up to me at the end to ask me why the spider was drawing words close to the end.

7. A sharp guy.
She must have been impressed.
At the start of Aquaman the WB logo with water over it. The guy next to me turns to his date and says “ooooooh, because its Aquaman”
That movie was not very good but sitting next to a dude with childlike wonder for everything that was happening I had a great time watching it

8. Who’s that?
Really? Come on!
How about just all throughout the movie? Like the time I went to go see INFINITY WAR and the woman sitting next to me asked her significant other, “Who’s that?” when CAPTAIN AMERICA first showed up onscreen

9. You’re in the wrong place!
I remember waiting for The Fellowship of the Ring to start rolling and when the name came up someone yelled “THIS ISN’T SHREK”

10. Who is that guy?
Maybe he fell asleep for a while…
Some old dude asked his wife who Thanos was in the third act of Endgame and she sounded so annoyed when she told him

11. It really is a classic.
It needs to be added to the Library of Congress.
during a preview for the Rob Schneider cinema classic “The Animal” a lady whispered to her partner “that looks good” and it haunts me to this day

12. This is so awesome.
I really hope he wasn’t kidding.
I was 3/4 of the way through Benjamin Button when a guy behind me said to his wife, “he’s gettin younger!”

13. There it is!
This guy is obviously a genius.
My friend and I saw the Johnny Depp Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and when Charlie pulls out the golden ticket, this guy in the row in front of us leans to his wife and says “bingo.” Missed the next ten min of the film bc we were stifling laughter
