Randomly Overheard Conversations that I think are funny #1 in a series

So, I was sitting in the food court eating my gyros sandwich (as delicious as it was unhealthy) next to a group of four people who were discussing whatever they were discussing, loudly enough to be overheard.

They talked about T-SQL (or maybe just SQL, didn't pay much attention to that) when one or more of them started talking about movie reviews.  Again, didn't pay much attention to it.

Then I heard one person say something like the following (paraphrasing):

"You know one movie I really didn't like?  The 'Meet The Parents' movie.  The main guy just didn't admit to the father that he didn't like cats.  And so, everything that happened to him was something he deserved because he wasn't honest about not liking cats.  One thing I can't stand about people is when they aren't honest about what they believe.  It wasn't funny at all."

Um, there are these things called movies.  They, uh, I mean, if you are watching a movie, especially something that is supposed to be a comedy, then, uh, well, there's this suspension of belief thing and,'re kidding, right?

Disclaimer: I have never watched 'Meet the Parents' all the way through so have no opinion about the movie itself.
