"NEW YORK (AP) -- You may want to try this at home. Suresh Joachim (YOH'-kum), of Toronto, and Claudia Wavra (wahv-RA'), of Germany, claim to have broken the world record for continuous movie watching, after seeing 57 films in 123 hours in a plexi-glass house in Times Square.

A Guinness World Records spokesman says it appears the non-dynamic duo have broken the movie-watching record but says it will take two weeks to officially verify.

The attempt began Oct. 2 when eight challengers started watching ''Iron Man.'' After 72 hours, only two remained. They watched ''Thelma and Louise'' until the end on 3:10 p.m. Tuesday.

Susan Sarandon, a star of that film, dropped off the final film.

The rules: Each movie had to be viewed until the last credit rolled, and competitors could not divert their eyes from the screen. They were allowed 10-minute breaks between movies.

We might have a few posters in the "HTF October Scary Movie Challenge" who might challenge this record before it's over. ;)
