You do the math. I&#39;m getting curious about this book/movie! Might check that out tomorrow while I&#39;m out and about.

Really, this experience merits $42 in your eyes? And you think I am coming back?<br /><br />Clearly calling the unhappy client is a task on a head office list. So, your task is done, you can check calling me off your task list.Brahm (alfred lives here)http://www.blogger.com/profile/11883394577835241921noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-65105758074858913622010-08-16T19:46:12.290-06:002010-08-16T19:46:12.290-06:0012 dollars for a movie?

We pay 7 and I am outraged, some of the theaters are small enough that I can simply invite the audience to my house and watch something on our 42 inch screen. 12 dollars? incredible. <br /><br />I have a huge problem with the price of food at the movies, I can get the exact same candy at walmart for a dollar, or pay the 3 dollars at theatre. I&#39;d love to buy it at the theatre but I refuse to be ripped off in that manner, so I sneak it in from walmart. <br /><br />12 dollars, my butt.bmat10http://bmat10.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-49157716632859755072010-08-16T18:39:57.324-06:002010-08-16T18:39:57.324-06:00Customer service is not what it used to be.

The whole movie experience is pretty streamlined here, because there is nothing better to do than go to movies, so it&#39;s kind of the main form of entertainment.

Yep, theatre. As in one. So no matter how terrible the service is, they have us because there are no other options. I have nearly stroked out more than once waiting in line there. And because we have four kids? And if we take all of them and ourselves to a show? We are spending considerably more than $42 for the same crap-tacular service.

I too am getting less and less impressed with the movie experiecen - I used to go all the time, now is fairly rare - between the time and effort and $, should be a treat of an experience. Clearly not.<br /><br />As for Eat Pray Love, I would totally reccomend the book, is smart and funny and insightful. The movie can easily wait for dvd, is enjoyable, without the smarts or self-deprecating humour of the book.
