When a one hour 36 minute movie takes four hours to show.
And before you start thinking too much, I already did the math for you:
- Movie length = 96 minutes
- Total length of showing = 240 minutes
- Total commercial time = 144 minutes (Total length - Movie length)
- Amount of commercial time for each minute of movie time = 1.5 minutes (total commercial time / movie length)
That means that if they display 10 minutes of movie, you have to sit through 15 minutes of commercials.
And you just know the commercials on the Hallmark Movie Channel will make you want to scratch your eyes out.
