People who call going to the movies, going to the show. It's not a show, fucker. It's a movie. I understand your grandparents called it going to the show, but that's because they used to play "shows" at the theater. Now we go see movies. So knock it off.

Well, you're not really "going to a movie" either, are you? :)

I find "flick" much more pretentious and douchey.

Yeah, but when I'm referring to a specific movie showtime, I still call that "the 7 o'clock show"... Is that acceptable? :mistrust:
