HOW MUCH WOULD SOMEONE HAVE TO PAY YOU TO SEE?
This is a game my husband, Phil, and I play. How much would someone have to pay you to see again or for the first time a particularly undesirable movie.
His top choice is Steel Magnolias; he would have to be paid $5000 to see it again.
My choice is THE MAGDALENE SISTERS, where I would demand $1500. Now TMS is a good, very good, movie but I can't bear to watch the torture in it again. Any movie with torture commands a huge payoff for me.
Steel Magnolia is just too girly and weepy for Phil. So there are different reasons for high figures here.
We both would ask about $1000 to watch TERMS OF ENDEARMENT. Death of young mothers does not sit easily with me and I am not fond of Shirley McLaine.
Too girly and weepy for Phil.
FORREST GUMP-there is no amount.
What movie would you demand the most money to sit through again and why?
