I actually watched all of it on a plane ride.
Think that's lame? I just tried watching Sucker Punch...
Half an hour in I couldn't stand how awful it was and turned it off.
Pure torture really, the chics wore too much make up to keep me visually attracted anyways.
It wasn't so much that that bugged me (Although I do agree they should've laid off a bit), it was the ridiculously over the top way of telling the story... I've heard of a lot of movies that have been described as only having an extremely shallow plot that is just there to push you from one action scene to another...
... But this... This is the first time I've seen a movie that was so blatant about it. "When I dance, I'm fighting a war against giant samurai and steampunk nazis!"
All while somehow tying this to their attempts to escape a crazy house... like WTF...
And this is coming from someone who watches cliché and extremely overexaggerated and over the top anime. Seriously, I got more enjoyment watching Goku "power up" an attack while bitching about how he needs more time over the span of 10 episodes than I did out of the 30 min of Sucker Punch.
