Get Your Money Back From Bad Movies

Facebook App Helps You Get Reimbursed For Sucky Movies

If you saw a real stinker of a movie recently and are still fuming over the dough you lost paying for your tix — I feel you, movie tickets here in SF are upwards of $10.50 now — a new Facebook app can't get your precious time back, but can at least help you get back your money in the form of free movie tickets.

Called Payback Time, this app relies heavily on your creative and convincing writing style. Just leave your rant on Payback Time as to why you should get your money back, list the dollar amount you want reimbursed (I'd throw in the cost of popcorn and drinks, but hey, that's just me), then just sit back and leave it to the Facebook community to vote and decide who should get their cash back. If you win over the community with your sob story, you can then cash in your winnings on Fandango and see whatever movie you want — for free!

Not a bad deal for convincing others that your movie-going experience was the worst ever. I'm just hoping those free tickets go to a worthwhile film this time!

that's great. there have been several times that i've felt that i've wasted my money on the movie, but i've chalked it up to just that - a bad movie. knowing that there's a way that you can try to plead your case on this, well i think that it's great.

Jasmint-I hated that one, too. I was looking for that when I added the application :)

What an awesome idea! Sometimes the movies can be such overpriced crap. Good deal.

I thought "Burn After Reading" was hilarious! :D I wish I could get my time and money back from having to suffer through "Quarantine". Worst 2 hours ever.

The last flop I compromised to see at the theater was "Burn After Reading" and it cost me $14 + a couple bucks for parking. I LOVE YOU, LA.
