This question already has an answer here:

Me either OR Me neither? MW Collegiate Dictionary says Me Either is correct.

Shouldn't it be "Me neither" in this example?

"I didn't like the movie." "Me either."

Perhaps "either" is truly correct because the sentence equates to "I didn't either." "I didn't neither" would be incorrect because it's a double negative. Your thoughts? Should it be "Me either" or "Me neither" in that example?

Since you are communicating a NEGATIVE idea, you should include a negative form, thus - NEITHER would be a better and the most correct form in many cases.
