Which movie would you see this weekend?

So, my team at my company is having a movie day on Saturday. We all decided to vote on a movie we would all watch. I was kinda shocked at the results. I'm making this a poll to see what you would've chosen just to confirm I'm not crazy.

I don't see a list...? But if you mean from what's currently playing, I would see (and actually plan on seeing) Burn After Reading (tonight).

I voted for Burn after Reading, though apparently the newest Tyler Perry opus actually has a handful of white people in it, which intrigues me. Seriously though, what's with that guy including his name in every one of his film titles? What are you, Alfred fucking Hitchcock?

Probably Righteous Kill, although I haven't heard that many great things about it. I've already seen the other movies on that list that I care too, although watching Dark Knight again wouldnt be too shabby.

Are there any white people in your group?

Yes, quite a bit. But men are outnumbered 4:1. That may have had something to do with it.

Wow. You have to sit through a Tyler Perry feature? I'm sorry.

I would've chose the Other option as Vegas finally got Transsiberian. However, since that option didn't exist I chose Burn After Reading.

You should quit your job. Then see Burn After Reading.

I would call in sick... Seriously I would rather work a double shift I think then have to sit through that. Anyways, I think Burn After Reading and Righteous Kill are on tap for me this weekend.

Because some people eat up anything and everything with Tyler Perry's name on it. It's just a marketing thing, and it's working.

I'm going to see Righteous Kill tonight and Burn After Reading tomorrow.

I'm going to Burn After Reading this afternoon, Righteous Kill tonight... I'm shocked that any 'group' would decide on a Tyler Perry flick... I guess it could have been even worse and they could have chosen THE WOMEN...actually, I don't know if that is worse... two brands of awful.

Then maybe next time they'll pick a real movie.

I voted Tropic Thunder, but only because I didn't see Burn After Reading on the list.

I voted Burn After Reading since I saw Righteous Kill this afternoon and can't recommend it.

Shame on anyone who hasn't seen TDK. I've already seen most of those and highly recommend Burn After Reading. Righteous Kill is bad. I'm also seeing Boy A this weekend.
