Question Hi, there Could you help me with three questions? 1) Does it sound odd to say "I don't like fish, but I can tolerate it. Shrimp is pushing it too far, though. I hate it." Does it sound odd? What could I say instead? "Now shrimp is too much, through"? Could you give me an example? 2) Let us say you were planning to see a certain movie premiere(OR A CERTAIN MOVIE'S PREMIERE??) but your friend forgot to buy the tickets. What could you say? "It's all screwed/doomed now"? Does it sound odd? 3) Can you say "Take a certain look off your face"? "put on a look/puppy dog eyes"? , "have a look"? For example: "Take that crying look off your face." "Why do you have such a crying look/face?"?, "Take off/Put away those puppy dog eyes" If they sound odd, what could you say instead? 4) Do you say "Thank you all very much!" or "Thank you very much to all of you"? Thank you a lot!

1) Your first expression is perfect. Very good use of English, very natural. 2) Yes, MOVIE PREMIERE is correct and "We're screwed now" (sounds a bit strong) or "We're stuffed now" (same meaning but a bit less intense). "We're doomed" doesn't sound right to me. 3) "Take that look off your face" sounds fine and we'd say "Turn off (or "Don't give me") those Puppy Dog eyes" 4) Either is OK but your first choice sounds more like a native speaker :-)

1) Fine. 2) Movie premiere is correct. We'd say 'We're stuffed now.' 3) We'd say 'Don't give me that look.' 4) Either is fine.
