    Green Bay Packers coach cancels interview because of cell phone interruptions

    I realize this isn't specifically a movie topic, but it certainly relates to a significant movie-related problem that we have been discussing for years. I think Sherman did the right thing walking out of that interview, and I wish more public figures would do the same. His explanation was also spot on - lack of respect.

    I know this topic gets a lot of lip service here, so I'm not looking to start a thread for all of us to bitch and moan about cell phone use in theaters. However, I think if Sherman's attitude and actions spilled into other areas of our lives, it might positively impact our moviegoing experience.

    I agree completely. Sometimes it takes people with power to lay the groundwork.

    Why is this in the Movies area? Are they adapting the cell phone incident into a film?
