Longest gone without watching a movie?

a full and complete movie, not just a snippet. whether it be on tv, dvd, or the theater...

prob. 2-3 days for me.

what is the longest you have gone without watching a movie?

yeah. video, cell phones...any full, complete movie that was or is a theatrical release or straight to video. we'll discount made-for-tv since this is the movie forum.

When work's tough, sometimes I'll only watch movies on the weekends. Probably haven't gone longer than 5 days, though.

Usually I don't go much more than a few days without watching something.

I'd guess about 3-4 months. I used to only average about 1 movie per month.

Let's see, from the time I was born until about age 5, I didn't watch any. So 5 years.

I'd say it's a few weeks at least. Although I knew someone years ago who had not gone to seen a movie in the theatres since Jaws.

Before I got into Dvds, I really never watched that much. I bet I went 3-4 months between movies. Since my 1st player in spring of 99, I would say about a week.
