So there I was – sitting in my window seat at the outset of a 12 hour flight. I had used a bunch of miles in order to upgrade, so I was able to enjoy on-demand films. Next to me, the businessman was sipping his wine while the flight attendants traversed the aisles with food trays.
I had taken advantage of traveling sans kids to spread out, get my reading ready, set up my laptop, and then, finally – tee up my movie. “SUHWEEET,” I thought, “They have Toy Story 3!”
Big mistake (sort of). The lesson I learned: Never watch a tear-jerker like Toy Story 3 at the beginning of a flight when the lights are still on and people are walking around. It was a terrific film, but <spoiler alert> as a mom with little kids, I couldn’t help but sob like a baby as they showed the boy character growing up and going to college (makes me weepy just writing this note!).
So my question for you is: What are other movies NOT to watch on a plane when the lights are still on? Whether they make you laugh or cry, feel free to use the comments to let me know.
