Disclaimer, I walked out 35 minutes into the actual film. I walked out 1 hour from the start of the previews. It was ridiculous.
Anyway, they need to rename this "Everything in the world, no matter what liberal's policy led us to economic disaster is all G.W. Bush's fault." It's a pathetic attempt to support the narrative by Obama and Hollywood liberals, (or as I like to call them -Anti-Americans), that Bush dug such a big hole, that a bigger hole needs to be dug in order to save the Republic. I had to walk out. It was 30 minutes of two losers walking around, smoking and doing heroine(while Bush and Obama talk about bank bailout), people playing poker whilst listening to Bush talk about the bank bailouts, a corporate type mob boss talking to Brad Pitt about setting things straight(while listening to Bush talk about bank bailout, or Obama heroically trying to fix what he inherited), or a Mob leader driving, listening to Bush talk about bank bailout. Pathetic.

Interesting would be my first assessment. Not my kind of movie but well written. Although I saw a continuity error in the first scenes with the Australian eating a ice cream one second and the next shot when should still have it's not there. Kept talking about place in around the Boston area. But didn't seem to be filmed in Boston at all. Bostonese type expressions like "this after" veiled or finally toned down Boston accents. Set in 2004 but we had a 1973 Buick Riviera, and 1970 prox Oldsmobile Tornado, and early 1980s Cadillac DeVille??? A scene that looked like is was filmed in a hall of Omni Parker House in Boston. Just odd that all. But other than those observations not a bad movie.

My husband and I left after 40 minutes. I was ready to leave after two minutes. Nonstop profanity. Bad plot. Brad Pitt wasn't even in it for the first 20 minutes and from what I was, wasn't award worthy.

Sorry but to all writers out there how about providing some depth to your scripts rather than every other word being the F word. This movie was awful. Pitt was subpar gandolfini's character was pointless just like the movie. Save your money

I've never been more tempted to get up and leave a theater than I was during this waste of my life!! Had I not been the kind of person that puts WAY to a high a value on the $18.00 I had just spent to see this movie, I would have left, gone home and shoveled dog crap from my yard and most certainly had more fun than sitting through this HORRIBLE movie. It was nothing but stupid conversations and greasy people - literally un-bathed, greasy people. I can't think of a worse movie I've seen in the last two years.... maybe No Country for Old Men (if that's what it was called?) - there's really no comparison to how horrible this was.
