Saw the trailer and thought, wow, this looks great.
The movie - clearly it was adapted from a book, but they missed a bunch. Weirdness abounds (and don't get me wrong, I like weird)
Disappointing - with this cast of great actors - we could have done better.

I had low expectations for this movie but I was in shock afterwards. It wasn't great but it was very good. It's Zac Efron's best by a mile. Thanks for letting me have fun.

I really don't understand why this movie got so many bad reviews. I thought it was a really good flick. The story line was excellent, the climax was good as well as the acting. I think it's the first time I saw a movie that features Zac Efron. He's definitely a great actor. Nice performance by Macy Gray as well and Nicole Kidman was terrific. I recommend this movie but it's not for kids or sensitive people. There are some violent and sexually-explicit scenes. Great movie all around.

The acting was well done but the screenplay was a disaster. I walked away wondering what was the point of it all? One of the most disappointing movies I ever saw!

I did not realize how conservative I was until I saw this movie. The actors did a great job playing each character but I was left to wonder how disturbing it actually was once I sat through it. Just glad it is over and it was not for me.
