A Question About Big Fish (Very Minor Spoilers) - PLEASE HELP!

Can someone help me, and let me know whether or not I have just made a gross error?

I just went to see this movie, but walked out, as it seemed the projectionist had missed out a huge chunk of film.

Is it right that as the little girl hangs Edward Bloom's shoes, we cut almost immediately, and without warning to the giant guy signing a contract with Danny De Vito to be in the circus?

Seemed strange to me, and the whole cinema walked out, but hey - this is Burton, so you never know...

Thanks in advance

No it's not supposed to happen that way. I think your theater missed the best part of the movie. Sounds like a reel is missing. You should have gotten your money back.

You missed roughly 20 minutes of the film.

Demand your money back, that's unacceptable.

The best part was the guy who worked at the theatre. And I quote:

' You see, Burton has done things non-sequentially. He jumps a lot, and thats why it doesn't make sense.'

Something wasn't making sense all right, jackass...
