Is there anything more annoying than finding yourself at the movies in close proximity to some thoughtless imbeciles who insist on providing a running commentary on the film? As they offer up incredulous recaps of the action ("He fell down the stairs!"), anticipate the more obvious developments ("She's going to forget the tickets!") or deliver pitiful reality checks ("Oh, come on. No one could get up after getting hit like that!"), you cringe lower and lower in your seat. Isn't this exactly why VCRs were invented? So people like this could stay home and bray at each other?
