The Paperboy, my foot!
This film is not only a huge exercise in sleaze, but a pointless story as well. It is definitely NOT for under 17, and if you are over 17 you should be willing to give away 1 hour and 47 minutes of your life for practically nothing in return. That said, Nicole Kidman has got to be the master (mistress?) of the low movie character because she does it so brilliantly.
Matthew McConnaughey should stick to playing an attorney because he does that quite well, though there may not be enough of those roles for him to earn a living; therefore, I suggest he take up regular work like the rest of us, though not as a paperboy! I suspect the rest of the "actors" in this film were just trying to earn a buck. I don't know what the writer was thinking at the time, but he certainly misnamed this piece of trash! The director, for me, got so lost in the sleaze he forgot the name of the film! All-in-all, I wish I had gone Christmas shopping instead!!! RATED R.
