Very well done. Great perfomance by Giamatti...oscar nomination worthy in my view.
Best of the year!
A beautiful movie, well acted , directed and written. A gem of a movie.
very good movie that is held together by the amazing performances by virtually everyone in the film...especially giammati and hoffman.
Good movie! The truth is stranger than fiction.
excellent movie!!! one of the better movies I've seen in recent years. Smart, funny and moving. Giammatti was great, as was Hoofman and Rose Pike.
Very emotional and worthwhile movie.
this movie is good
good movie...bring tissues
One of the most moving movies I've seen in years. Excellent film.
Great movie - the characters were so compelling and heartbreaking. I loved Paul Giamatti's portrayal of Barney.
Brilliant movie - amazing performances..Loved Dustin Hoffman in this flick.
Really good movie!!!! All the actors were amazing in brining this calssic novel to life.
Very well done movie; enjoyable!
A great movie
This is a wonderful story and a perfect tribute to Mordecai Richler.
Very touching and funny in parts
very funny and entertaining movie. Despite seemingly a bit too long, the movie delivers in the end. Great performances by Giammatti, Hoffman and Pike.
acting was superb, interesting story
One of the best movies I've seen this year. Great story. Some twists. Some sexual tension. Great characters. You laugh, cry and even gasp. Need I say more?
Great movie with outstanding performances!
Could have used someone other than Paul Giamatti.....
Dustin Hoffman was the only character I could work up much interest in or sympathy for and he only appeared briefly. Maybe if they'd gotten another actor to play Barney as a young man it would have been a bit more believable. Hard to enjoy a movie when the main character is such a jerk.
Loved this movie
WOnderful movie and did the book proud
Should have been nominated. Hoffman was awesome
Good movie, albeit a bit slow and dull at times. Very good, yet sad ending. I enjoyed it!
Very emotional, heartfelt movie. Brilliant performances. Dustin Hioffman deserved an oscar nomination for his portrayal of Barney's father. A very good movie.
Good story, keeps you guessing.
very entertaining movie about life, love and all the problems we create.....amazing performances by the entire cast, especially Giammatti and Pike.
Very good movie - deserved an oscar nomination, but for reasons I don't understand, it didn't get one - did people really think Winter's Bone was better than this??
A very good movie. At times, the movie was sad, funny, gross and disturbing. Great perforamcne by Giamatti...also, really strong and surprising performances by Scott Speedman, Rachel Lefebvre, Minnie Driver and Hoffman. A very good movie - GO CANADA.
Absolutely wonderful film. I would go back at see it again!
great acting, good script
This movie is fabulous, it was totally ignored by the Oscars, all the stars did a great job, and the locations were top notch.
Barney's version may not be the right one but the movie is
Interesting view of character
the movie is good and funny
Shows what Canada can do
This was a very moving film that turned out to be perhaps less funny and more serious than expected, but certainly for the better. The actors all deliver incredibly realistic performances and the Oscar-nominated make-up is also worthy of praise. Go see this movie if you want to have some thoughts provoked.
we all enjoyed this movie!
