Charlie & Debbie

Weekdays 3:00PM - 7:00PM

OMG this is something that will make Debbie’s LIFE!

Or at least it will make mine not having to hear about it EVERY time we go to the movies.  For example, just a couple of weeks ago, our son and I were out playing golf and she decided to go see “Downton Abbey.”

When I asked her how it was, what do you think her response was?

If you guessed, “I’m so sick and tired of a movie saying it starts at 1:30 and then I have to sit through 30 minutes of previews,” then you are correct.

Well, all that could be changing.

Financial expert Martin Lewis is calling on cinemas to give a film’s official start time, not the kick-off of the commercials and trailers.

Lewis attended a recent screening that was said to begin at 8:45 pm but didn’t actually come on for another 32 minutes. So he took to Twitter to complain.

The message posted Sunday has gathered over 54,000 retweets and more than 78,000 likes, even gaining support from Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright.

What about people like me WHO LIKE all the trailers?

She hates em, I love em…yup, that’s why we’ve stayed married. 😉
