Without bathroom breaks to accommodate the consequences of my coffee-quaff, I find it quite difficult to watch a movie in its entirety in one sitting. On average, a two-hour movie takes about six to finish, with breaks sprinkled more liberally throughout than salt sprinkled on a bowl of popcorn. Sometimes the pause is to consult imDb.com ("How old is Anthony Hopkins?"), others because the time has never seemed more right to see if a certain pair of boots "go" with a certain dress. Naturally, this phenomenon is limited to home viewing. Just try pausing a movie at the local AMC.
