I realize I am a minority of one here at DVD Talk, being a male who is a big Jane Austen fan.
Jane Austen is one of the greatest writers in the history of English lit. She's like the Mozart of the novel - the prose is so mathematically precise it's awe-inspiring. It's also in many cases really, really, funny.

I had to watch "How to Lose a guy in 10 days". I started to grow man breast near the end. "Home Sweet Home Alabama" was next, but I got out of it fearing my nipples might start lactating.

I'll have to chime in with another anti-Rocky Horror post.

She loves the movie, but after suffering through it once (before i met her) i will never view it ever again.

I love all types of films, including british dramas, musicals, romantic comedies, etc., that most guys would hate. I love my boyfriend, so I don't subject him to those films. Actually, he (gasp!) doesn't much care for most movies, even "guy" movies (I also happen to love scifi/fantasy, action, and kung fu movies, too) so I also rarely subject him to those. How does this work? I watch the movies I want to, that he has no interest in, when he's doing other stuff, like computer games, or on days I don't see him. It's really not that hard to make both people happy, unless one (or both) is (are) being a stubborn ass. Why on earth should you subject the person you love to two+ hours of torture? Makes no sense at all to me. I just find my own time to watch those films, and everybody's happy.

I like watching films, and I like it even more with my GF. We for the most part have common taste in films. But sometimes she'll say "Oh you have to see this film. You'll love it!" So I watch and sometimes think that I'm going to break up with her if this movie
1) doesn't end soon, or
2) that someone doesn't strip naked and do a cart wheel thru the wedding party, or
3) if a 30 story tall T-Rex doesn't grab a brides maid and bite her in half, etc. etc.

I usually am very down with movies most men tend to dislike (romantic comedies, musicals, etc.) but I have to say I hated Anne of Green Gables. It was long, boring and annoying. Of course I never read the books either so there was no prior emotional investment in the story.

Buffy... any and all. Including the spinoff, Angel.

She, in turn, hates all the violent mob movies/shows that I like. Goodfellas, Sopranos, Casino, et al.

I WISH my wife simply threw in movies I didn't care for. Instead she watches whatever is on TV, mostly sitcoms and various "Law & Order" shows. She knows these shows tend to be very lacking, but watches them anyway. This despite the fact that we have a nice movie collection. I even gave her the 18 hr (sorry, 5 hr ) A&E "Pride & Prejudice" she loves so much hoping to change the pattern. She's watched that twice. (More than I can say for many of my DVDs, though.)

My wife doesn't really care to own DVDs because she'll rarely watch anything more than once (she rents 1 or 2 a week), so they're all mine, and I like them all, even the chick flicks.

My girlfriend owns about 5 dvds that she has bought herself and classes her own...Titanic,Benny & Joon,Practical Magic,Bridget Jones,Lost Boys.

I can just about manage sitting through 'Lost Boys' for the umpteenth time, but have insisted that unless i get a bad case of insomnia i'm not going to subject myself to watching her other dvds.

Thankfully she is generally willing to watch most of the dvds i have in my collection although as part of a trade off i usually get roped into doing the supermarket shopping etc in return if it's a film she's not overly keen on etc..lol

I should have mentioned her subtle humor. There's way more to P&P than romance. The opening sentence of the novel is one of the most classic in all of literature (and she writes it with tongue-in-cheek, it is not supposed to be taken seriously).

Made sure I paid for it at a counter with a girl there. Then to my embarrassment she went on and on about how much she like the movie. I told her it was a gift for my mother.

Not precisely film but TVonDVD -

Sex in the City

To start with: I hate typical romance movies. You know, the ones with the same plot: guy meets girl but lies, girl finds out, guy and girl break up and get back together B.S. She has a weakness for a few of those she can't seem to break...

Anyway,
It's funny because I enjoy Dawson's Creek, I'm OK with Felicity, etc...but something about Sex in the City I just don't like. She keeps saying " you should watch Sex in the City with me" and I keep saying "ugh. I really don't like that show, I don't know why."

I usually find ways to avoid watching movies she wants to watch. But that's only because she likes crappy horror and comedy movies. That and she wants all the movies that feature Bruce Willis, Johnny Depp, Sylvester Stallone, and Ice Cube. But she can cook!

If I have to watch 'Notting Hill' one more time, I'm going to bludgeon Hugh Grant to death with the case.

The Worst movie ever... EverAfter.... God I hate that movie, and my GF purchased it. When my GF saw it on DVD on the shelves (i had told her it wasnt out on DVD), and said we are getting it, i told her I didnt want to cause it wasnt anamorphic, and she actually read the box and it stated anamorphic and was enhanced for widescreen and demanded we watch it on my Front Projector that night... GOod lord I was pissed... Terriable, just terriable
