The Other GuysLast night, I took my parents to see 'The Other Guys,' the new buddy cop comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. It was funny and harmless, and as we left the theater, we all agreed that it was well worth the 50-plus dollars it cost to see it. (We also "splurged" on a medium popcorn and two sodas.)

Still, though they had heard me laughing throughout the movie, my parents were surprised that I actually liked it, not because I tend to avoid Will Ferrell movies at all cost (blame 'Bewitched'), but because I had already seen the damn movie -- the day before.

I'll admit I was surprised by how willingly I had agreed to see 'The Other Guys' again. It was as if I hadn't even seen it in the first place. Granted, I knew I could never convince my parents to see what I really wanted to see ('Charlie St. Cloud' or, even better, 'Step Up 3-D'), but while funny, there wasn't anything particularly funny or shocking about 'The Other Guys' that warranted another viewing within the span of 24 hours. (In other words: It was no 'Inception.') The Other GuysLast night, I took my parents to see 'The Other Guys,' the new buddy cop comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Why I decided to see it again, I'll never know. But in trying to find a justifiable reason, I realized that I had been in this situation multiple times before, mostly over the span of the past two or three years. 'Atonement,' 'Mamma Mia!', 'WALL-E' -- I saw them each twice within 48 hours. I even forced myself to see 'Revolutionary Road' a second time, just to determine whether it was actually one of the worst films I had ever seen. (As it turns out, it was.) Sure, a lot of it had to do with my ex-roommate, who was as persuasive as he was annoying, but I went along for the ride, anyway, without much protest. (Fine. I'll admit that, in the case of 'Mamma Mia!', I didn't protest at all.) Now, I'm convinced I have some type of problem.

Luckily, it seems that other people have this problem, as well. From 'Salt,' to 'Inception' to 'Twilight' (of course), our Facebook and Twitter users are chiming in now with stories of movies they've seen twice in the same weekend. Click here and here to join in on the discussion.
