Movie Prices

So I take my daughter and two neighbor girls to see G-Force in 3D. I'll refrain from commenting on the actual movie. However, the price for the four of us plus a large popcorn and 4 drinks came to a whopping 80 frggin bucks!

How is that even legit? How can the theaters get away with charging so much? Is there something that can be done? I for one will wait until movies are out on DVD from now on.

No wonder movies seem to break records when they bring in the highest grossing score. $10 a ticket? Hmm...I remember when $10 got you the ticket, food, and a couple bucks for the arcade.

Okay, I'm done venting.

I stay away from the food at the theater, adds up too quick. We just saw Funny People last night at AMC theaters and tickets were $17 for the two of us. But I know what you mean, trying to bring a bunch of kids, who are going to want popcorn and drinks adds big time. Hopefully they at least enjoyed it

The light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off due to budget cuts.

Man purse sounds so offensive and feminine, try these:
"European Carry-All" (Seinfeld reference)
"satchel" (sounds much more manly huh?)
or just use your wife's/girlfriend's purse.
