So my S.O. and I went to see Venom on Friday night. Someone brought a four year old that was terrified out of her mind, wouldn't stop crying, management was of little help. So we were like, fuck it. We'll try again in a couple days.
So last night, we go back, same theater, same seats, same everything. Now, shortly before the film started, a group of sorority girls (we live in a college town and you could tell by their voices) came and sat right behind us. They talked through the previews, some through the movie, but the most annoying fucking thing, is that they would not stop laughing.
Now yes, Venom does have some great comedy, but they laughed at every little thing. Literally, every time Venom spoke, they laughed. Eddie got hit by the car, they laughed. Something trivial happens, they laughed. Something serious and suspenseful happens, they laugh.
I didn't want to cause a scene (what do I say? people are laughing too much?) but it was annoying as all hell. They laughed so obnoxiously, I had trouble hearing the movie at times. I finally leaned over to my S.O. and told them I was pretty sure they must be drunk. It's not THAT funny.
Then the movie ended, we stood up, I finally turned around and looked at the girls behind us. Then I had to stifle my own laughter, because OF COURSE.
They weren't drunk. They were goddamn spheres. They were the STEREOTYPICAL overly made-up, overly dressed, giggly hamplanets trying to make up for their lack of physical attractiveness with obnoxious "fun girl" personalities. I should've known.
I turned to my S.O., "I should've known."
My S.O. gives a smirk. "I know."
They were by FAR, the worst people to share a theater with. I would've preferred another terrified four year old to dumb-ass, fat-ass, worthless hamplanets.
