It wasn't well organized at all. The doors didn't open until 7:45pm and the movie started at 8:30pm. The line-up at the concession stand was so long they delayed the start of the movie ... had they opened the doors on time, they could have started on time.
The hosts were a couple drag queens.

I knew ahead of time there were be "commentary" by the hosts. I thought it would be like the Die Hard Quote-Along we've been to the last two years ... the host occasionally jumps in with comments. Not here! Allysin and Fisher babbled non-freakin'-stop the entire time and weren't really funny. They were louder than the movie so it's a good thing the movie was closed-captioned because it was hard to hear what the actors were saying. It was annoying but I was able for the most part to tune them out. Plus I've seen the movie so many times that I could recite a lot of the lines.
There was an intermission halfway through the movie. It was obvious Gord wasn't enjoying the movie either so we left.
