This movie is nine dollars too long.
What does it refer to? Thanks.
Comics and Editorial Cartoons: Shoe on Yahoo! News
It's a common expression in AmE to mix metaphors in that way when you've paid money for something you didn't like or thought was a waste of time. For example, when I bought a CD by a group my husband hates, he asked "How much did you pay for that?" "$14.99," I replied. "Well, that was $15 too much," he snorted.
In this case, Shoe didn't like the movie which he apparently paid $9 to see. Since he couldn't wait for the film to end, it seemed overly long to him. About $9 too long.
