Cute, but does Elton John really need any more royalties? I gave up on it a quarter of the way through.

12 Candyman: The David Klein Story
A documentary about the Jelly Bean inventor, lauded in many quarters. He comes across as a bit of a naive and odious pillock and after 25 minutes or so the story started to leave a bad taste in my mouth... probably popcorn flavour.

Really? What was there to enjoy here?

I got through about 25 minutes of it, until thewoman who was supposed to be pregnant jumped approximately 70-80 feet through the air onto the tin roof of an abandoned building which then collapsed underneath her.

This was after the farcical scene with the train followed by the half-mile or so plunge into the river where NO-ONE got even scathed.

Oh, and THAT was after the utterly stupid scene with the prison bus at the beginning

and THAT was after I was enough or a tosser to hire it from the library on the strength of "Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift" which was a complete classic of its genre.

Well, that's all what makes it great. Of course, it's all absurd and I suppose I figured you knew that going in. It's like watching a movie knowing that there's going to be lots of boobies and hot girls, but no plot, and you watch it simply for the boobies and girls.

In this case you're watching it for the absurdity, the action, the silliness of the plot, the overly muscled guys and completely unreal model girls, and the really really crazy final scene.

This thread is for films that you started to watch but gave up on, usually within the first 30 minutes, and usually because they are so awful.

Thanks, I understand that. Allow me to rephrase my question. Do the watchers/abandoners of said movies never see a preview/commercial, the lead actors/actresses, or read about the movie prior to watching? How many movies do you watch per week or year? I can only remember doing it once recently (forgot the movie name thankfully).
