I never liked a movie enough to see it more than a few times. Seeing a movie more than that would spoil it for me.

I used to go to the movies with Nostradamus, but no more.

Same for me. If I've seen a movie more than a few times, it's because somebody else chose to watch it and I was there. (About the only things I've chosen to see several times are How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas. And that would still be at most once a year.)
It takes so little to be above average.

Famous, vain movie actor: "I starred in ________ _ ________. You know my work."
Maxwell Smart: "Right. I liked it so much, I saw it once."

Carol Channing: "I do so love going to the movies, don't you? Just once, I'd like to see a picture as good as the one they're showing next week."

She was a gem! Loved her.

Not related: I've figured out what your problem is. You think nothing could be worse than President Donald Trump (again). There are things that could be vastly worse, and if we're not careful, we may find out what they're like.

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

Aside to my aside: As I was looking up the origin of ^that expression, I discovered that I may deploy it differently than others. Hmm.

A poll, like:

How many of you diners at posh city restaurants like violent crime? Does it make the right statement, or does it need tweaking? What's the correct way to interpret the voting?

So how many different people actually post on your account? Or do you have multiple personalities?

Leave your name and I'll tell them you stopped by.

you can stalk me and respond, or you can boast about ignoring me. But doing both is funny.

Was "lit behind" supposed to be "bit behind"?  Both version made sense in context but convey opposite meanings.
And how is that working out for you?
