Took my daughters to see Hunger Games on Sunday evening.
About halfway through the the girl of the couple sitting in front and about two seats to the right of us pulls out her phone and reads a text, then sends one. I think - ok, strike one. Short time later she pulls it out again, reads a text, sends another one.
On strike three a few minutes later, I reached my foot over and gave the back of her chair a good hard kick. Not whiplash hard, but enough to get her and her boyfriend's attention (they were 20 something's). They looked back at me in a highly offended way. I leaned over closer, and said in a nice stage whisper "OH, SORRY!"
They didn't' get the phone out again during the movie.
BTW, why does every director of an action film think shaky cam and quick pans / cuts are some fabulous technique? It was so bad int eh first 30 minutes we had to move to the back of the theater, and my youngest wanted to leave because she felt nauseous. I had to look a the exit sign for a while, and just sort of view the movie out of my peripheral vision. It got better after the first half hour.
