Dissapointing. Notwithstanding, Damon and Bakula give great performances. Unfortunately, I think the filmmakers tried to be too quirky with the story. Its unfortunate, because this had the makings of a great film, but I think the writing and direction got a bit lost.
THis is actually a pretty good movie. Very intelligent and witty. I do admit that it's not for everybody, as it has a tendency to be boring, if you are not into character development type of movies and are more into the typical blockbuster type (Transformers, etc)
Shame on Matt Damon for accepting such a script. He is a talented actor that needs not work for the big pay day alone. He should remember his responsibility to the viewers. This movie plot was way beneath him and I walked out feeling that he cheated me.
Tries too hard to be witty and winds up being boring as heck! That's not something I usually say about a Soderberg film.
Unbelievably boring! Ridiculous..everyone in the theater seemed underwhelmed..a few people walked out--which I wish we did--trust me..it does not improve!
this movie is a beyond waste of your time the humor is not even funny and by the worst movie with matt damon
One of the most boring movies I've ever sat through. I watched 5 couples walk out (of approx 30 people to begin with), before I fell asleep. Wife liked it though
I love good books and movies so this was a total disappointment, especially with MD for even acting in such a "booorring" move. Don't waste your money folks unless you need something to put you to sleep.
Totally sucked !!!!6 of us got together for a good night out at the movies and we choose this show due to the description and the actors, all of us were in total agreement that is was a complete dud/waste of money. I haven't seen a movie that boring in many, many years two of the group slept for the last hour.
If I could give it less than 1 star I would. One of the most stupid movies I have seen. I am upset that George Clooney would even have his name associated with it.
I fell asleep. Slow, boring movie. Disapointed as MD is usually much better.
Left 1/2 way through. Another movie about actors and arrogance that they believe hard working people want to spend money on garbage like this
Barely any funny parts to this movie, and it was painstakingly slooooow! I kept looking over at my friend to see if she wanted to leave, especially since she looked bored.
I agree with the reviewer who said it starts slow, but it finishes really strong. This is a wonderful film about a good hearted guy with bipolar disorder. Matt Damon plays the loveable shlub. Great movie. Highly recommend it. 5 stars.
This is a really good movie. I can't believe how negative some of these reviews are...did you peaople actually see this movie? It's great.
I loved it. A great movie.
I really liked it. It starts a bit slow, but ends really strong. 5 stars.
One of the best films of the year. For those who hated it, you need not worry - Transformers II is coming to DVD soon.
A great movie for adults.
Intelligent, witty film with unexpected laughs. Really enjoyed Matt is something other than a Bourne character.
Slow, slow, slow, slow, slow start. About half way through it picks up. Is it worth the wait? After some consideration............NO! signed.............GWH
A great character study. Matt Damon knocks it out of the park. This film is not for everyone. Don't go expecting big big laughs. You won't get that here. What you will get is a smart film and a good time. Highly recommended!
A great film. Smart and funny. Ignore the bad reviews. 5 stars.
It wasn't as much of a comedy as i expected, but it was just as good a movie.
Walked out of this movie. Absolutely terrible.
Biggest waste of money this year. Save your money and rent an old "B" flick.
another over-rated waste of time!!! dont believe the hype that the critics are putting on this one. really makes you wonder with all of the great books out there; who's choosing which ones get made into movies?!?!?!
What a waste of money. The music, the story, there wasn't anything good about this movie.
Excellent movie. Matt Damon was great.
WAS A BORING MOVIE AND I AM SORRY I WASTED MY MONEY ON IT. FELT LIKE GETTING UP AND GOING NEXT DOOR TO WATCH SANDRA BULLOCKS NEW MOVIE
Great performances by Matt Damon and Melanie Lynskey. Interesting and amusing twist to story. Convinces us the corruption of corporate culture is widespread.
Funny moments here and there,but as a whole not very good. I almost fell sleep,which NEVER happens.
I had a very good snooze - too bad I had to pay money to catch some sleep.
One star is even generous. What a waste of time and money - wouldn't even recommend renting it.
Just a bad movie.....
bad film bad lighting bad bad script.... Matt what happened? Do not wasit your time on this stupit movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!
