In honor of Sex and the City 2 since most men will get drag by their girls, have you even been dragged to a movie against your will...and was it worth it?

I'm mostly been single but accidentally stumbled on a couple relationships and the movies I saw with them were pretty good ie Juno and Devil Wears Prada

Thankfully my SO has never dragged to see a lame rom-com or god-forbid-one of those goddamn Twilight films(which she hates with a passion) nope she'd rather see films like Kick Ass with me.

My ex had a pretty good taste in film when we were going out. Still does to my knowledge.

My girlfriend would loathe SatC2 as much as I would, and she actually likes fashion and... whatever else the movie is about.

The last movie we watched together was Cache. Her choice. I do love her.

My lady friend has taste. She enjoys movies as much as I do and like to think about/discuss them as well. We watched Blood Simple together last night for the movie club. She'd much rather watch that than a chick flick. This makes me think she's just swell!

Here's a true story:

I've seen every single episode of Sex and the City. I haven't seen the movie, and I won't. My girlfriend has seen the show once. She hated it. Feel free to ridicule me for this. My defense is I watched them all with a girl in college, although not a girlfriend. Yeah, I know, flimsy at best.

I'll admit it i'm pretty well whipped...but luckily my SO doesn't have TOO bad of taste. Except for Twilight, most of the movies she's dragged me to that were rom-com's or something weren't that awful.

I love films and I love good films, but I'd rather see Sex and the City 2 than watch Cache again. Maybe it would have been less dull if it wasn't advertised to me as

A. The best movie of the last 10 years and
B. A thriller

but that shit was more boring than watching paint dry.

I actually think Haneke would agree with me over you here :)

I dislike it when viewers and critics feel that it's their job to compartmentalize a movie for the audience. It's bad enough that advertising agencies have already done severe enough damage. For a movie like Cache, to pigeonhole it into a single genre is to reduce it.

I don't have a SO or girlfriend, but a lady friend took me to see Boondock Saints 2 at the college theater. I have never hated a person so much after seeing a movie.

Well I think it's pretty ridiculous to resent someone just cause they brought you to a film you hate, I mean it's like that person had anything to do with the film being bad.

Don't worry Vex. We're both still friends. Although, I'll chose the next movie we'll go to see. :)

I'm married, so I'm expected to go to crappy rom-coms without expecting something in return. Although I refuse to see anything associated with Sex and the City.
