Can hardly wait: "so boring you can hardly wait for it to.''

Hello everyone,


Does the combination between "can hardly wait" and "so boring that" sound appropriate (natural) in my example below?


- "Mike, this movie is so boring that you can hardly wait for it to be over. It will make you want to leave the room. Be prepared.''


Meaning intended: something is so boring that you really wish it ended as soon as possible, you're anxious (can hardly wait) that it ends.


Thank you in advance!

    It does to me, too, but - and I know this doesn't make much sense - the negative form ("You can't hardly wait for it to be over") is often used in this context and the meaning is the same.
