In the episode “Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life,” Frank and Mac (Rob McElhenney) end up seeing a movie together and are the world’s worst movie patrons after a failed Bon Jovi business meeting. They talk loudly, Mac answers phone calls, and Frank plays with a laser pointer, which Howerton explained shows a common but important theme throughout the series: 

“But what you were saying about the obnoxiousness of those people [Frank and Mac in the movie theater] … That was so — I feel like that’s a question we’re constantly answering on It’s Always Sunny, and the question is always: Who does that? You know what I mean? Like when you go through life and you see people act a certain way, you’re like, ‘Who the f*** … who acts this way? Who does this?’ And ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ is the answer to that question. You know what I mean? It’s been such a delight to purge that from myself because I’ve been in movie theaters where people are basically doing exactly what you guys are doing and I’m like, ‘Are you f***ing kidding me?'”

Almost everyone who’s ever been to a movie theater has had an experience with horrible audience members (seriously, who talks on the phone in a theater?!) but as always, the gang take things up another notch. They are pretty much always obnoxious, but they’ve even shown their bad movie theater etiquette on multiple occasions. After all, it’s crucial that the gang never grows or become better people, because it would defeat the whole purpose of the show!
