Attendance: Regal River Oaks Cinema 8, Decatur, AL, Aud. 8, 2001/03/22 19:20

I enjoyed this movie and I disagree with the "horrible" description. The movie started out with some pretty good laughs but later in the movie there were periods that could have used some spicing up. The movie did get a lot of laughs from the people in the audience, so I consider it to be a successful comedy. Some of the gags were hilarious. This movie had one of the worst one-liners I'd ever heard in a movie (something about quitting sausage and becoming a vaginaterian). During the first half hour of the movie I was led to believe this was going to be another extremely funny comedy but felt a bit let down later in the movie, but overall, I had a great time. It is worth noting that the "hand over the mouth" gesture was used by several members of this audience quite often in reaction to some of the gags.

The presentation was excellent, which is typical of this location. This theatre is an excellent example of "Film Done Right" consistently. Surprisingly, on this Friday night 7:20PM showing, there were a total of 8 people (includig me) in this 153-seat auditorium.

Hey Evans, just a curious question. Are you still using last years calender?

I think they should have pushed it back even further, like back on the shelves. With all the hype, plus pulling the ads on tv and changing the play dates so many times.....ugh. I was expecting alot more from this film and was terribly disappointed with the end results. After seeing it I have come to one conclusion, Chris Klein can't act. His cute little smile and Keane (sp) Reeves acting skills won't save this film.

Actually, my parents have a calender that's about 20 years old that we used to make our own grape jelly with, and it's still as good as new. (Sorry, that was just too good an opportunity to pass up )

I still having trouble putting 2001 on things rather than 2000. At least I didn't put it in my ratings database that way, because then the weight for the "100" rating that the theatre got would only be 75% instead of 100%. I still accidentally write 2000 on things because it seems like no time since I had to get used to the weirdness of "2000" instead of 19 something. This makes me want to go back and check all the dates I've entered this year.

About "Say It Isn't So", it seems that very people I know are going out to see this movie. Usually on Friday and Saturday night, there are at least bunches of rowdy teenagers who flock to these kinds of movies, but not this one.

I know what you mean about that date thing
The movie pretty much flopped all over the country. I guess people are getting tired of this type of movie.

Quotes from Evans:
"Surprisingly, on this Friday night 7:20PM showing, there were a total of 8 people (includig me) in this 153-seat auditorium."

"Usually on Friday and Saturday night, there are at least bunches of rowdy teenagers who flock to these kinds of movies, but not this one."

Again, leads me to believe that I'm not the only one who thinks the film totally blows. Were it not for the backwoods, redneck brothers it would have been deplorable.

IMNSHO, of course..

WOW, am I the only one that liked it? I think this is one of those movies you have to be in the "mood" for. I guess screening this at 1AM with three of my best friends helped, considering all the really stupid parts got made fun of....it just made it so much better being able to be loud and rowdy!

No, Rachel,
I liked it too! Just, I almost threw up when she wiped the bread under her arm pits!

The afternoon I saw it, there were 22 people in this 452/453 auditorium. That's a lot of people for a Friday afternoon when most people are in school or working!

Andrew: If "most people are in school or working" that afternoon, how did you get out of school to go to a matinee?

I was playing hookie... <That's a joke, BTW!

It was the first day of spring break for me because student led conferences were going on Thursday night and Friday all day.

The rest of the neighbourhood was still working and going to school, like my little sister and big brother!

My dad took me to Hooter's for lunch. I like that restaurant!
