Gary Wolcott, an FM News 101 movie critic, probably sees more films in a week than most of us do in a year. Wolcott spends up to eighteen-hours a week reviewing movies.  He can’t help but notice smartphone addicts who feel right at home texting during movies. Gary Wolcott

Wolcott says announcements during the previews to not next during movies are not enforced at all.

According to Wolcott, there’ve been reports that theater-goers can even get away with sex during a movie, as long as they’re bothering no one.
