    To be worth

    I'm posting this question for English4everyone, who for some reason can't post it him/herself:


    Can we use "to be worth" about time? For example: It's not worth the / your time watching this film. Or do we have to use it this way: It's not worth watching this film.

    Yes.
    "My cooking tastes so bad it's just not worth the time I put into it".
    "You might be able to fix the turntable, if you think it's worth the/your time trying".
    "It's a big exhibition but it's worth your time having a look if you like modern art".
