Not sure why your friends had to sit on the floor but they've only got themselves to blame. Your 10 minute arguing in a packed cinema must have caused a huge disturbance to everyone around you. Grow up.
I'm sure there are better ways to criticise newcomers to the forum without being so damn patronising. Advising people on where they went wrong is fine, but telling them to grow up is beyond pathetic.

Yeah, I'm sure that my friends deserved to be verbally screamed at and sworn at by these so called grown ups. And yes it did cause a distribance in the packed out cinema and guess who was in the wrong, not my friends. Even the mangement said they were in the wrong. How dare an adult scream and swear at children?!

I'm an adult myself now and they could have totally handled that differently. Yes we may have taken there seats, but at least we were grown up enough to give them back. So why don't you grown up and take your patronising self somewhere else.
BTW if Beate took her "patronising self somewhere else" this forum would grind to a halt!

Some people can just never see when they're in the wrong. Fact is you or your friends took someone else's seats, then you argued for ten minutes instead of vacating them promptly. If you hadn't done either, there wouldn't have been a problem. Calling me patronising just for pointing out the obvious means you've clearly learnt nothing from it.

Out of interest, if you knew you were to see this film on your birthday, why didn't you book tickets and reserve seats beforehand? You knew it would be busy and it was a birthday treat, surely you could have asked a parent to reserve seats for you altogether? The other people knew it would be busy, hence they booked and reserved seats beforehand.

I had a row of teenagers sat in front of me yesterday; the vast majority were incapable of not faffing with their phones during the film. One actually took two selfies and seemed most surprised when I yelled at her!

Chill and move on. All this arguing makes me want to put on a huge sombrero and sit in front of everyone while scoffing evil-smelling loud crunchy things. *Raspberry*.

Watching "Bitch" yesterday at Sundance (london, not USA) about a woman who acts like a dog.

A fully grown adult middleaged woman sat next to me with her equally fully grown middleaged woman friend, who told her buddy that her feet were uncomfortably wet, presumably because she'd been caught in the downpour earlier that day. Her friend told her to take her shoes off to reveal her smelly feet. ("Whoof??)

What a stink. Wasnt sure what to do. ("Excuse me your feet are smelly, you not noticed? yuh..nuh..thanks awfully"),until I noticed that there was noone sat near us to our left, nor to our right or in front... so I decided ... to take one of my shoes off, and place the revealed foot right next to her. Yesterdays downpour had made my socks smelly too.

The number of glances I got after that from that pair of noodles throughout the film was awesome. Well act like a child, and you will treated like a child.
No, I do not want to see Bad Boys, ok?

This doesn't adhere to this thread but as we're discussing disgusting behaviour.
What gives some people the right to leave their more solid deposits for all to see in public toilets??
Are we supposed to inspect them and score them on shape, colour, solidity etc??
Some people are just downright disgusting. :X

Bitch was good movie. Particularly the 4DX smell effects were amazingly real.
