A 'Pitt maneuver' is when a female forces an unwilling/unwitting male to attend a romantic movie. These movies generally star some glamourous ,handsome dude like Brad Pitt. They are typically the kinds of movies that a male will avoid attending at any cost. This maneuver is similar in methodology to the police department's 'PIT' maneuver, whereby a police vehicle forces the apprehended vehicle's occupant into compliance against their will.
A: Hey man, missed you at the pool hall last night, what happened?
B: Ugh.....don't remind me about last night. The missus pulled a 'Pitt maneuver' on me and I ended up watching Sex in the City part 8. There's 3 hours of life I'll never get back....
