“So bad, I got up and asked for our money, and what did I get?” I got the money back.
He continued, “They said ‘Usually in the first 30 minutes we give the money back”. The movie didn’t do anything for two fucking hours, it sucked! ‘

Along with the clip, Barrowman wrote: ‘@MNightShyamalan #Old @UniversalPics what a waste of money and a pure s *** e movie.
“We get the metaphors but we got a refund anyway!” We were so disappointed. Don’t waste your time or money going to see it.
Twitter users were quick to call Barrowman, with one responding to his post, “What a dastardly thing to do. It stinks of law. Grow.’

Another added: “You are so wrong that you marked it in there, if you didn’t like it just move on. “

Synopsis: Old follows a family on vacation to a tropical beach, where they age incredibly quickly and reduce their lives to just one day
Old is an adaptation of the graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters.
The film, which was shot in a COVID-19 “bubble” in the Dominican Republic, follows a family vacationing on a tropical beach, where they age incredibly quickly and reduce their life to just one day.
It follows that Barrowman is set to return to ITV as the host of All Star Musicals, with the bosses choosing to give him another shot after admitting to exposing himself on the sets of Doctor Who and Torchwood.
According to The Mirror, the actor has been lined up for two more series of All Star Musicals following his apology.
Barrowman has yet to sign a contract, but the shows are already in pre-production for Christmas and Easter and insiders are said to be confident he will be on them.
A source said: “Discussions with John are going well. He is the best man for the job and it has been admitted that his behavior is foolish rather than predatory.
“He knows it was a really stupid thing to do, but it was a long time ago and there’s no way it will ever happen again. We draw a line and move forward.

The All Star Musicals concert would also be good news for Barrowman’s chances of returning to the Dancing On Ice jury in January.
No charges have been laid against the media personality after allegations that he exposed himself following more serious allegations of sexual harassment against his Doctor Who co-star Noel Clarke.
In an interview with Weekend magazine, Barrowman said his behavior on set is to “defuse the embarrassment” whenever he shoots a sex scene in Torchwood.
He said: “As Captain Jack Harkness I was the star of Torchwood, so I thought it was my job to run the company and keep them entertained. When I was doing a nude scene or a love scene it was clear in the script that I would be naked and everyone would have known at least 48 hours in advance.

“So I would wait in my trailer wearing just a dress with a sock over my ‘parties’. Then if I was waiting to shoot a scene where I needed to be naked and someone showed up, I would make a joke to make them and myself comfortable. My actions were simply designed to defuse any potential awkwardness among the cast and crew.
He added, “I’ve never been someone who’s ashamed of their body, so I didn’t mind if someone saw me naked. The motivation for what I would call my “rudeness” was to maintain a pleasant atmosphere. There was absolutely nothing sexual in my actions and I was never accused of it.
Barrowman revealed he was called to a meeting with Doctor Who and Torchwood executive producer Julie Gardner, who told him to reign in his behavior.
The actor added that he could now see that his behavior was “youthful” and that it would not be something he would do today.
It comes after he told The Guardian that his “spirited demeanor” was “never meant for good humor” to entertain colleagues on set and behind the scenes – not sexual harassment.
“Looking back, I understand that my rambunctious behavior may have been upset and I have already apologized for it,” he said. “Since my apology in November 2008, my understanding and behavior have also changed. “
Barrowman broke his silence in May, taking to Instagram to share a video with fans in the backyard of his Palm Springs home.
He said: ‘Hi everyone, it’s John here and I just want to say thank you very much to all my family of fans and everyone who has reached out with the countless messages of support over the past few weeks.
“It meant a lot to me and really touched me to know that people support me and stand by my side and send me their love, all their appreciation and kind words. “
He signed his post saying, “I hope we will all be back together soon and I can’t wait. Lots of love and thank you. ‘
