Wow! I can't believe I wasted any of my evening seeing this horrible movie. I saw the review on USA Today and it sounded great ... if you love PULP FICTION it said,you'll love it ...said it was SO funny. This movie was not funny and I LOVED Pulp Fiction. If I could do this night over, I would not waste my time. When you see an okay movie, you can handle that ... this was simply awful. I shoud have taken the clue that a 9:30 showing on opening night had about 15 people total (the four of us included).

Great actors and great one liners ----scattered, unrelated hilarity on occasion ---- otherwise gruesome and the bloody visual detract from any dialogue. Otherwise way too obvious "guy" mania trying to be so on the edge, but disappointing and boring most of the time. Dark humor to the excess. Advertisements and TV clips of film definitely show only the best part.

Pace of the movie was a little bit too slow, the humor was bland, probably tweaked for people with about 70 IQ average. The whole thing about the movie writing itself as it happens i just found kind of annoying, its something that actors probably like to do. To me the movie was pretty average/bad and it didnt keep my attention so i left early.

At this writing, 97% positive Tweets about this movie....really???????
The only reason I rated it NO instead of OH NO is because I am a huge fan of Christopher Walken....
Love dark quirky edgy humor...not squeamish about gore/profanity....but I agree with other reviewers. The best moments of the movie are those presented in the trailer/TV clips....I too am a fan of Quentin Tarantino/Coen Bros movies and opted for this film over other fare opening the same weekend after reading the comparisons. I expected one clever humorous surprise after another, along with an awesome soundtrack, a la Tarantino. Lesson learned--only Quentin Tarantino can make a Quentin Tarantino movie.
One positive reviewer used the term "side-splitting". I only laughed out loud a couple of times--at MYSELF, for actually paying good money and dragging 3 others with me to see such mediocre fare. I see a new movie nearly every Sunday...realize they can't all be winners. But this one REALLY disappointed.

Quite a few people walked out of this movie as I doubt it was what they expected. It seems like someone tried to make a Tarantino/Guy Ritchie hybrid style movie. Please leave this style of movie to the pros. It also seems like this movie was made for people who make movies. I think the critics got this one wrong.
