Mine are:

Out of Africa
The Piano
The English Patient

Can't decide whether Out of Africa or The Piano were more hideously dull. And the English Patient was just bloody irritating - it was such a relief when he died.

Remember going to see 'Ghost' in the cinema and someone sitting behind me sobbed so loudly.

And I just sat there wondering what all the fuss was about!!!!

The Piano, agree, load of boring old twaddle
American Beauty, terrible imo

Or the one with Liam Neesom in a kilt and Jessica Lange with a baad Scotish accent.

Gingerbear Sat 27-May-06 22:43:11

Oh, oh thought of another one -Dead Poet's Society

Dead Parrot Society would have been better

Forrest Gump - hated it. Can't see what the hell all the fuss is about.

Tom Hanks with a dreadful southern accent!!!

Truly Madly Deeply - just embarrassing.

Also Shirley Valentine - the scene where she was was apparently walking through Mayfair with her Sainsburys bags on her way home finished it for me and it got worse after that.

Good Will Hunting, moondog.

Actually quite liked that.

Find Robin Williams very schmaltzy though on the whole!!

GB, I loved ET - ahem, how old were you when it first came out?

Gingerbear Sat 27-May-06 22:47:12

A Beautiful Mind?
The Gladiator Bloke trying to be deep.

moondog Sat 27-May-06 22:47:14

Oh Jan,TMD is wonderful.
Am dismayed at your sneery tone

JanH Sat 27-May-06 22:47:44

Agree on Robin Williams - Mrs Doubtfire another cringeworthy one.

JanH Sat 27-May-06 22:48:18

Sorry, moondog

Gingerbear Sat 27-May-06 22:48:49

Janh - erm...can't recall - a rebellious teen perhaps??
