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.

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.

it was an okay movie. sometimes, comical but overall, it was a little long for me. it's a must see only because brad pitt is in this movie.

This film gets an A-Plus for acting and an F for content. The casting was perfect for this film and the acting was perfect. It's just too bad that every other word in this film is an F this and F that and more. It has some violent scenes that are graphic; but not so many that made them over the top. I'm not a prude; but the overkill of the F word made me want to walk out. There are sentences that have two to three F words in them alone. If the script would have taken out 80% of the cussing this would have been an excellent film. Wake up Hollywood, there's a reason why so many animated films are making hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

Walked out after 30 minutes. I see most movies when they first come out. I must admit that most animations are much better than this movie. Wasted $7 but the popcorn was good.
