What is incorrect in my code?

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I got the user input, it prints "Enjoy the show!" if it is anything other than N/n, and it exits if it IS N/n. What do I have to change?

firedoor.py
import sys
start_movie=input("Start the movie? Y/N:")
if start_movie.lower != "n":
  print("Enjoy the show!")
else:
  sys.exit()

Hi Parimal,

You just need to add parentheses to the end of your ".lower" method:

if start_movie.lower() != "n": print("Enjoy the show!") else: sys.exit()

Hope this helps.

Best,

Dan
