Many thanks in advance

I'd call them smart alecks or show-offs

Thanks Beas. :-D

What about if they are just people who are "genuinely" intrigued by and in awe of the movie so much so that they just have to know what comes next before it happens and it's clear that they are far from being "smart" alecks?

Is there a word for that kind? If you're asked to improvise a name, what would it be?

Thanks a million

I know someone like this. if the person is entering a house in the movie for example, she says: "oh, see this, he enters the house,"

we call them "life file" here (like the nail file, makes it short:)

Yes, it's like that. Or they ask: why is he entering the house? what's gonna happen?;-)

It sounds funny, but can you explain more on "makes it short" part in relation to people who take on the role of narrating a movie here and there? :-D

NT, when I said makes it short, I meant that kind of person shortens your life with his/her comments-questions ; similar to a nail file, which trims (shortens) your nails :lol:

I laughed. Got it, that's funny.:-D "life file"---good one. :up:

I know plenty of those people who can shorten your life span. I'd say I won't live beyond 50!:-(

Thanks
