Have you watched a movie in a theater with a howler? You know that person that laughs at the most inappropriate times LOUDLY? I’m that person. It sucks but I just can’t help myself.
Yesterday my friend Ryan and I went to see “I Love You, Man.” We’ve seen movies together before but always suspense or dramas, never a comedy. He had no idea what he was getting into–although, the fact that I laugh hysterically over the stupid “shut your cell phone” promos should have been enough of a warning.
The movie started and I instantly started laughing at the most awkward parts of the film. From the concerned look on his face I think he was worried that I was having a seizure, or was choking on my tongue.
I tried to tone it down. Really I did. I just wasn’t successful. When I try and hold laughter in I feel like my face is going to explode. Face explosions are a LOT more distracting than hyena laughter, or so I keep telling myself.
Ryan didn’t complain, but I have a feeling we are going to start seeing a lot of depressing films from here on out.
