I looked on the engine I couldn't find this topic, Who knows maybe it has not really been done. What film have you seen that had you so restless in your seat or falling asleep?

Dune. Not just dull but painfully ugly. Rather had my teeth pulled. Beats nipple dismemberment any day.

The last temptation of Christ.
Only reason stayed to the end was a very bad rainstorm.
The biggest piece of c.. have ever seen and nothing to do with religion at all.

Angela's Ashes. Tortuous.

"Sophie's Choice" - I didn't care whom or what she chose

I was anxious for something - anything - to happen. Much to my disappointment, nothing did.

Albert Brooks was marvelous, though.

Final Analysis, I think (the early '90s thriller with Richard Gere). It seemed competently made, but just... completely not engaging, for me.

I've now given this film 2 chances and have concluded it could be used as an antidote to caffeine.

STAR WARS. My wife and I were so bored, we fell sound asleep. Never happened before or since.

A few contenders, but I'd probably go with Traffic. My friend and I were excited to go see that after all the rave reviews, and it just about put us into a coma. The guy behind us nodded off a few times, and his wife had to keep waking him up when he'd start to snore. That was more entertaining than anything in the film.

Haha!! I agree. Definitely Top 5 Dullest for me.

Saving Ryan's Privates

Probably The Village. A complete waste of two talented Howards (Bryce Dallas and James Newton).

Seabiscuit - God that was dull. Everyone was so NICE to one another. There was no tension, nothing to care about, just torture.

War Horse wasn't much better.

CHARIOTS OF FIRE. Of course I was only 8 years old then.

It's a toss-up between "Out of Africa" and "The Last Temptation of Christ".

The awful, awful PT Barnum, umm I mean Anderson film, Magnolia. True torture.

And a little film that has since become known as The English F*cking Patient.

Syriana. The one that popped into my mind when I saw the thread title. Other movies that made me go to sleep were The Dark Knight Rises, Avatar and Fellowship of the Ring, though in defense of Fellowship I was sitting at the front row because the theater was packed and I had to look up all the time which made me fatigued after two hours so I missed the last part which I later revisited on blu-ray. smile

I'm pretty sure I answered this question on the board recently, it was Jane Campion's 'The Piano' for me. Hated it. My wife would say Ridley Scott's '1492 - Conquest of Paradise'. She fell asleep. I love that moviesmile
