    Moviegoers Are Sharing The Wildest Double Features They Sat Through — And I Honestly Wasn't Expecting Some Of These

    "I should have switched the order so that I could have left the theater happy instead of crying."

    On July 21st, the release of two polar-opposite films — Barbie and Oppenheimer — brought fans together and created the internet phenomenon that is known as "Barbenheimer."

    Regardless of whether you saw Barbie or Oppenheimer first, one thing we can all agree on is the amazing scale of excitement that the two films brought back to the theaters.

    So, in light of the double feature fanatics, I asked the BuzzFeed Community the all-important question: "What is the wildest double feature you’ve sat through at a movie theater, and what did you love (or hate) about it?"

    The results are in, and honestly, I am impressed with some people's dedication to cinema.

    I'm a self-proclaimed movie lover myself, but I have to say, I'm not sure I could even top some of these double features. Let's dive in and see what the community had to say.

    1. I want to be a part of this town where Borat is hosted in a CHURCH of all places:

    The Passion of the Christ and Borat main characters

    2. Nothing like a bit of Dr. Seuss followed by "Dr." Chainsaw:

    The Cat in The Hat and Chainsaw Massacre main characters

    3. Disney and Tarantino is exactly the sort of film combination I would pick:

    The Lion King's Simba and Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    4. What's better than a combination of the friendly ghost and the scariest kids in horror history?

    Casper the friendly ghost, and one of the possessed children in Village of the Damned

    5. I, too, would have stayed for Mean Girls, just to heal my heart after the events of The Notebook:

    Rachel McAdams in The Notebook and Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls

    6. When a double feature turns into double tears, you know you've made an error:

    Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup / Platt in 12 Years a Slave and Terrence Howard as Quentin "Q" Spivey in The Best Man Holiday

    7. I hope this fan took the prime opportunity of saying "I'll be back" when the first end credits rolled because I would have been as sad to do so myself:

    Keanu Reeves in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey and Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2: Judgement Day

    8. This has got to be one of my favorite double-turned-quadruple features. In all lives, you will find me having a Christian Bale marathon:

    Christian Bale in American Psycho, Batman Beings, 3:10 To Yuma and The Machinist

    9. Sports and zombies, I get that:

    Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson in 42, and possessed demon girl in Evil Dead

    10. How about this fan's interesting drive-in combo?

    Mike Myers Shrek character, and Julia Stiles in Save the Last Dance

    11. I mean, you could say that both films here are about saving the world (or part of it), right? Right?!

    Mulan animated character, Bruce Willis in Armageddon

    12. And this double bill had one movie-goer wishing they'd swapped the order round:

    Rise of the Guardians character Jamie Bennett, and Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables

    13. Here for the experimental French cinema making it into a double bill:

    Jean Luc Goddard's Masculin Feminin, and Julia Ducournau's Titane

    14. Because who doesn't want to see James Bond and Edward Cullen on the same day?

    Daniel Craig as James Bond and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen

    15. This double feature is a 12-year-old's dream:

    Jennifer Garner in 13 going on 30 and Rachel McAdams in Mean Girls

    16. And here's to the films you can't remember and want to forget:

    Wild America main character and George Clooney as Batman

    17. I would like to speak to the drive-in coordinator because this double bill is hilarious:

    Over the Hedge raccoon, and Tom Cruise as a priest in Mission Impossible 3

    18. Imagine feeling the devastation after Titanic and then having to sing along to "Spice Up Your Life":

    Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic, and the Spice girls band in Spice world

    19. To be fair, both films here do include the main characters looking for answers... even if it is a stretch:

    Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock, and Rooney Mara as The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo

    20. Minions and dream stealing. Why not?

    Steve Carrell as Gru, and Leonardo Dicaprio in Inception
