The whole cast really does an amazing job of embodying their characters. This was one of those movies that when the credits rolled, you looked at your companions as said "what a great movie" One of the great things about it, is that it is different in a sea of been there done that movies.

Good movie, especially if you want to figure it out after if's over! All said and done, we walked out and spent the next hour discussing what we think happened. Not because we missed anything, but because it was a story in a story (I think). It kept us talking about it and wondering what others thought as well. Interesting, but not definative. Probably not interesting enough for anyone under 20+, though there's no violence or cursing. Nothing inappropriate. I'll watch for it to be released for home viewing and watch again to see if I missed anything that would've lead me to a clearer interpretation of the ending.

Both my wife and I liked it a lot and it was quite emotional. The acting, direction and story were great throughout but left us wondering at the end-about the ending. I could have thought of several different choices as all might.

Bradley Cooper's best movie yet, hands down! Don't believe the critics. Yes, the plot has twists and turns, is very interesting, and by the end of the movie it makes complete sense. Very well produced with great performances by all players. It appears that some of the critics didn't see the whole flick, or maybe too brain dead to follow it. Don't miss!

I think a couple of the West Coast critics were a little hard on it; although they had their points.This movie is a bit emotional for Mr Action Guy, although he definitely displayed his pain and anguish over the situation he put himself in. In his shoes I must admit I'm not what I would have done. I felt Zoe's reaction was overly done, and too harsh. Theres's a time to be tough, and time to be compassionate. Do you really want to crush your spouse when they're at their most vulnerable? In agreement with one critic; for me it was a couple pages short, and left me with out closure..Pthfndr.
