If you went to a movie with a friend and it was lousy, would you leave?
Yes. And I've done so in the past. I think it's only actually happened once. And I honestly can't remember what the movie was. But it was bad. It had to have been really, really bad for me to get up and walk out. But I wouldn't just leave a friend to sit there and watch a bad movie alone. If this friend who has such bad taste in movies feels compelled to stay and watch the whole thing, I'll stay too. I won't just abandon someone to that fate. But if he or she agreed with me about the poor quality of the film, I have no problem walking out.
