The things you're determined never to watch, read, or hear

Prettywoman_l1I just found out that my friend Sheila has never seen Pretty Woman, and that after holding out 18 years, she’s made it her mission in life not to — just because she wants to see if she can pull it off. I was going to ridicule her until I remembered that I’m never going to see Pulp Fiction. Or a single moment of The Hills.

I suspect we’re all playing this irrational, stubborn game with something… So out with it: What movie, TV show, or stage production are you trying never to give yourself the opportunity to enjoy? Or maybe there’s a book you’ve vowed not to read or a song you’ve refused to hear?

  • Michelle

    The Notebook.

  • Janice

    That would be anything and everything to do with Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers and High School Musical.

    High School Musical. Short of strapping me down to my couch and forcing my eyelids open a la Clockwork Orange, nothing is going to get me to watch it.

  • Rebecca

    Lord of the Rings or any of its incarnations.

  • blair!

    Dirty Dancing
    i know all the famous lines and the storyline, but i have no interest or need to see it

  • ah

    I, too, have never seen Pretty Woman. I have also never watched an episode of the Sopranos.
    I know lots of people who have never seen Star Wars, which I consider entirely unAmerican.

    I absolutely love this question. I have never seen Titanic or Grease, out of sheer principle. I would have had House on that list, but recently I saw an episode, and it wasn’t half bad (I’m kind of ashamed of myself).

    i refuse to read any book designated an “oprah” book. every time she recommends a new novel just seems like the ultimate lambs to slaughter or lemmings over the cliff action. millions of housewives everywhere apparently no longer have the ability to find a book to read on their own. and though i am not a housewife, i refuse to be blinded by that blindingly inane oprah pick sticker.

    I have never seen Pretty Woman, Pulp Fiction, or The Hills either. I’m not really avoiding the first two, but I refuse to ever watch a moment of The Hills. Other things I’m avoiding like the plague include the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and any procedural show (CSI, Cold Case, Without a Trace, etc).

  • queen of disrepair

    The Hills, The OC, Beverly Hills 90210, Entourage, HSM, The Real World (any incarnation), Road Rules (any incarnation), Dog the Bounty Hunter, Cold Mountain, any Saw movie and nothing to do with anyone getting any kind of intervention. However, I will watch the Kardashian clan because I’m waiting for the train to wreck and I want to see it happen.

  • Rachel

  • jaime

  • jaime

  • rachel
