    I should go with her to (see) one.

    My sister told me that not all horror movies are scary and I should go with her to one.



    Does the bolded part sound right? Should I put "see" in front of "one" to make it read better? Thanks.

    You could go with her to see one or you could go to one with her. That sentence is sort of a combination of the two.

    Angli,

    Go with the following sentence:

    'My sister told me that not all horror movies are scary and I should go with her to see one.'

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Amigo, for your advice.

    By the way, I'd like to pinpoint the meaning of "Go with" in your post "Go with the following ..." Is it interchangeable with "stick to; always use/say?"

    Yep. (It is not the same "go with" as in your example sentence.)

    Angli,

    I apologize for saying 'Go with the following sentence' when I responded to your question. I didn't even think about the confusion that may have been caused when it was compared to your original '...go with her...' sentence.

    I'll be more observant in future postings.

    Cheers,
    Amigos4

    Hi, Amigos4.
    It's not your fault! I just want to make sure of everything I learn.
    I learn more this way!

    Best regards,
