Dumbo was only 60 minutes, and ohh! look, shiny things...

Airplane was only 88 minutes, yet isn't listed.

You suck, list.

Ehhh I don't care how long a movie is, as long as it entertains me. The Dark Knight Rises was 165 minutes, but I was entertained throughout. On the other hand, Pearl Harbor was 183 minutes, and it felt like it took 3 days to get through.

All of those movies are old and therefore useless to the ADHD crowd.

Exactly. There's no MTV style editing, gratuitously loud music, or splasplosions.

That's why Michael Bay is the Steven Spielberg of the Ritalin generation.

The Ox Bow Incident is an excellent movie no matter the metric.

Movies should be 90 to 120 minutes.

It's surprising movies are longer. Surprised they are not making them shorter to make more money,

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1075747/ (Jonah Hex)

The shortest (non-animated) movie released within the last 60 years.

81 minutes 73 minutes without credits.

Of course, nobody who wasn't three heartbeats away from death from an alcohol and/or drug overdose would consider it to be a film worth watching.

In theory, Friedberg & Seltzer's Disaster Movie is the ideal film for somebody with ADHD:

- It's barely 70 minutes long.
- No references to anything over a few years old.
- And even then, the references are spelled out for the audience. ("Hey, look. That person is supposed to be Justin Timberlake!"
- Zero plot to speak of, so no need to worry about remembering any story details or subtle character nuances.
- Any given scene has nothing to do with anything that came before, or anything that will follow.

In actuality, I wouldn't wish that movie on Hitler.

Movies should be long enough to reach the ground.

Real ADHD people stick to short films in their basement. There's tons available on Youtube and Vimeo.

Can't agree there. The bulk of the movies that get released today that are 90 to 100 minutes feel rushed, cheap, or cut to death by a movie company. Too often they feel like novelty experiences. Most of my favorites are in the 2 to 2 1/2 hour range, often up to 3 hours.

Not to say there aren't good movies on the low end of the time scale. They just are few and far between, IMO.

"I'm the KING of ghetto hockey!" is one of the best lines is a movie, ever. I use it all the time.

Shemp was the 3rd Stooge (Curly was #4).

Who doesn't know that?

It entirely depends on the film. Most comedies couldn't fill 120 minutes, and many seem to drag even at 90 minutes. Some dramas need the extra time. Some definitely don't.

Disney's Pocahontas was 81 minutes.

Ah, but in the timeline of the short subjects, Shemp was the fourth Stooge.

77 minutes. But honestly it could have used another 30.

It did, it's just that those 30 were erased from the one timeline that you remember because your double let you even though your other time-traveling double tried to stop him.

I love love love that movie.  Clifton Webb is one of my favorite character actors, he always plays the effette snob.
 
Love and Death is another favorite of mine.

Rewatched that last night, came in to mention it.

And it's still three times longer than it needs to be.
