After 8 minutes due to it being utter shit?

YABU to turn it on in the first place!

Shakey15000 Sat 09-Jan-16 19:14:00

Ah, I love it for Meryl and the scenery smile

Destinysdaughter Sat 09-Jan-16 19:14:11

No as it doesn't get any better!

WitchWay Sat 09-Jan-16 19:15:13

No idea how bad the start is, or the end for that matter, as I've only seen the middle which was dreadful

YABVU. It's a great easy to watch film.

ALemonyPea Sat 09-Jan-16 19:16:21

You've done the right thing. Now have a glass of wine to get over the shock of how crap it is.

Bombaybunty Sat 09-Jan-16 19:16:54

Awful film.

PunkrockerGirl Sat 09-Jan-16 19:23:35

YANBU. Complete and utter shite.

I fucking hate that film

DoreenLethal Sat 09-Jan-16 19:26:37

I inadvertently put it on one [very dull] day.

It lasted around 3 minutes. Half of one song and a smidgen of another.

Never again. Horrendous.

wine poured in a hope of blotting the hideousness of those 8 minutes from my mind.....What can I watch now??

TheChippendenSpook Sat 09-Jan-16 19:34:26

I love it!

YANBU - it is fucking woeful and should have been killed with fire before it was ever released.

KoalaDownUnder Sat 09-Jan-16 19:39:50

Go and buy yourself a slab of fancy rocky road and put on Bridesmaids.

madmother1 Sat 09-Jan-16 19:41:00

I love it and have the CD of the music...I hang my head in shame grin

Libitina Sat 09-Jan-16 19:41:10

Never seen it and have no intention of ever doing so.
My BFF has watched it over and over and over agin. I think she's weird, she thinks I am, lol.

Luciferbox Sat 09-Jan-16 19:41:58

Save yourself, turn it off. It's awful.

TangledUpInGin Sat 09-Jan-16 19:43:03

Bridesmaids is one of my fave films and I have an enormous box of unopened thorntons chocolates grin

Godawful film! A few years ago I had to travel across El Salvador by bus and was the only female/foreigner so was desperately trying not to draw attention to myself.

The steward asked me if I wanted to choose the in-coach movie and I said I didn't have any preference (all the movies on coaches there tend to be macho/violent anyway)

And then Mama-Fucking-Mia starts playing (steward thought I'd like it) and all heads turn towards me. Felt really sorry for all the blokes having to endure the movie, as if life wasn't hard enough for them

YANBU. I almost walked out of the cinema in the first ten minutes. It's a cringe-athon.

Moln Sat 09-Jan-16 19:45:08

YANBU.

I lasted for far fewer minutes than you. I tried as I was given the impression it was brilliant (obviously it is to some!!). I feel that musical films are not for me. I watched Sweeny Todd and was so bemused and disturbed I failed to switch it off; I was not so mistaken with Mamma Mia.
