    What are soe movies you didnt want to see, but a wife, girlfriend, etc. made you?

    Mine:
    A week ago, my gf made me go see Ramona and Beezus, and Twilight.

    She made me watch both of the first two Twilight films.

    Twilight: New Moon. Damn, I was so ripped off that day.

    Beverly Hills Chihuahua (spelling?), Planet 51, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Underdog, Spy Kids 3-D, The Hangover (though I ended up loving it), Barnyard, a lot of lame kiddy movies I was forced to take my younger siblings to.

    While I guess I wouldn't really say I was "forced" to see it, I had to take my niece to a movie this weekend and the choices she gave me were Charlie St Cloud or Cats & Dogs 2.

    So we went to see Cats & Dogs because the other movie looked like a 2 hour snoozefest. Luckily, the movie was actually kinda entertaining. I mean yea, it's a movie about talking cats and talking dogs doing super spy things, but for what it was meant to be, it worked out well enough. Katt Williams made the movie though, that guy was born to play an annoying, hyperactive pigeon. In the end, it was actually a pretty fun kids movie. :lol

    When I was a kid, I was FORCED by my mother and her friends to watch Mrs. Doubtfire in the theater. But a funny thing happened and I liked it.

    You saw cats and dogs 2. How was the new road runner cartoon?


    I had to watch the rocky and bullwinklle movie. Hated the whole film. The cartoon was better.

    Not sure if this can count, but back in the 10th grade, my Theatre Tech teacher forced me to watch our high school rendition of High School Musical as a homework assignment.

    I want two and a half hours of my life back.

    My parents spend every winter in Arizona at a park full of elderly folks. Every year a lot of these people will put on a play, sorry, a "play". The last time my parents came home they brought a DVD of last year's "play" with them and made me watch it with them. I was happy to humor them and watch it, but....oh my. My, my, my. The horrors. One of the elderly ladies did a belly dance in the middle of the play, skimpy outfit and all. :( 

    As for a "real" movie, I was forced to sit through the Elvis film Girls! Girls! Girls! last week because a bunch of friends wanted to watch an Elvis movie, even though one of them pleaded desperately for any Elvis film but Girls! Girls! Girls!. I think there is a part of the movie, right after the old Chinese lady says, "You know Chinee Foo, you eat it and you hungry one hour lata!" that my soul actually left my body.

    It was pretty good, and if anything actually pretty violent. Very old school concepts with new school twists. They didn't pull any punches on poor ol' Wile E., he got hammered the entire time.

    Jason X. A friend of mine tempted me by paying for my ticket. It was two weeks into its run and the theater was empty save the two of us. Fifteen minutes in I asked "when does evil get an upgrade?" He had already seen the movie and told me that he doesn't go RoboCop until the very end. I spent the rest of the 90 minutes or so yelling at the screen, loud enough for the theater manager to peek in just to see what the hell was going on.

    IIRC my sister forced me to watch Twilight with her. We both didn't like it and because of that she wasn't a Twilight fan anymore. :)

    Can't think of any right now. Most of the film my parents make me see I more often then not end up liking.

    I feel bad for a you folks who were forced to watch the Twilight film. I pray for the when we will all be free of this sh!t franchise.

    I once had to watch this Diary of Anne Frank documentary thing. It was shit.

    And Auto once made me see How To Train Your Dragon. It was surprisingly pretty good, but seeing it wasn't my choice.

    I later got her back by forcing her to see Inception, though. ;)

    Empty theaters are the best. I remember (willingly) seeing Ninja Assassin in a theater with all of 6 people. Me, my brother, our friend and three other guys. It was awesome, both the empty theater and the movie. :lol 

    ...ouch. I willingly saw that cause I was a giant Gadget fan as a kid and my nephews wanted to see it too. It wasn't the worst "modern update" movie...but it wasn't something I'd watch again.
