Different but good. It is really like no other movie which was a pleasent change. The subtle humour gave a sophisticated touch. I did have to watch it twice though to fully appreciate it.
This is a black-eye for Bill Murray fans...He just looks BAD!!!
What a complete waste of time,Bill Murray was one of my favorite actors, but now he has become very depressing to watch. And his choice of movies shows he isn`t interested in comedy as most of us know it.
i thought it was interesting and quite fun, i liked it.
amazing. one of, if not the best movie this year. it`s blend of humor, action, romance and drama was simply astounding. anyone who didn`t like it just couldn`t keep up with it`s sharp wit and hilarious humor. the reason you didn`t get it is purely because you aren`t mature enough to follow the humor. the soundtrack was also astounding. casting Seu Jorge to play calmer, acoustic versions of David Bowie classics was a stroke of genius. Wes Anderson you are a crative genius and i would love it if you continued to make movies like this. a spectacle. definantly worth the money, i saw it several times. *****.
Instead of a `Tale of Two Cities`, a tale of two worlds... the one we all imagine for ourselves - against the one we live.
Wow... not a good movie... almost as effective as a sleeping pill. ALMOST.
Incredible. One of the best I`ve seen this year. It`s a shame that so many people are confused by it, or don`t see the humour. It`s life on film, and therefore most people don`t like it because they go to the movies to see what life will never be like. Unfortunate. The movie was great, soundtrack was phenomenal.
Not worth the time or money unless you are looking to have a good long sleep....that`s what I did throughout this snoozer!
What a disappointment after watching the trailer. I think they showed all the best parts of this movie on the trailer. The film, acting, directing, props, seems to be low budget and third rate. A comedy? It wasn`t very funny at all. Movie was like watching 2 hours of nothing. BORING!!!!!
this movie is not confusing, it is not funny, and bill murry has a dull sense of humor, he is nothing compared to the comidians like "mike myers, will ferrel, and jim carry" this movie is to stupid for words, there was only one guy laughing in the crowed by himself and he was probably stoned cuz everyone kept telling him to shut up, i saw 4 people leave the theatre, boring at times, only 1 good part.
If you are a fan of Bill Murray and his type of humor then this is a good movie...
This is by far Wes Anderson`s best film. I was very skeptical about seeing it at first due to the fact that Rushmore is one of the worst films I have ever seen and The Royal Tenenbaums was pointless. But in the end I`m glad I saw this. It was very funny and very tragic. Dafoe was perfectly casted alongside Murray and Wilson. Definately a must see.
i really loved the film i would give it 10out of 10. i think that owen wilson who played ned he is reall fit
Its wonderful if you look at it from the right angle. Not your typical movie.
Fantastic. Willem Dafoe should have got a best supporting actor nomination for playing Claus. People who didn`t like this movie (or any of Wes Anderson`s gold) are those who pay to see Meet the Fockers. Not as good as tenenbaums or rushmore, but almost. Maybe bottle rocket. My only complaint is not enough owen wilson (who disapointingly didn`t co-write the screenplay this time around).
Loved it!, I wish Bill Murray did movies with this sense of humor every year!!
Terrible, terrible movie. DUMB. It was.. so.. stupid.. that.. it wasn`t even funny. Not worth the money - not worth the time.
One of the worst movies I`ve ever seen. Almost as bad as "Dr.T and the Women" starring Richard Gere. I was pretty disappointed because I love Bill Murray. On the other side my sister and my son (10) loved it. I have no idea why.
This is one of those movies you love or you hate. I went with the latter. It was 2 hours of my life that I will never get back. Out of respect to the director, it stayed very true to its themes, however underdeveloped they were.
anyone who talks bad about this movie is simply afraid of what they don`t understand. it was awesome. anderson`s best. and the soundtrack was fantastic. seu jorge is my new favourite.
A silly non-funny film, quite pointless. Only positive is the sound track...
One word, sick ill....okay that is one word, honest, i just talk like i`m cool.....
The greatest part of seeing this movie was that I was still able to get my money back after 45 mins. I have honestly seen hundreds of movies in the theatre and never seen a worse movie than this.Was it a comedy? Who would know?
This is a really bad movie! I walked out in the first half hour and got my $$$ back. How can anybody sit through this whole film? Painfully awefull!!!
Not as good as tannenbaum`s
It`s assembled in a very self-aware artistic way, and at times takes cues from stage play sets. It`s visual effects harken back to Beatles videos and psychedelic David Bowie. That brings me to the sound-track, which features a large quantity of Ziggy Stardust (David Bowie) adapted to Portugese - played by a musician who is a member of `Team Zissou`, that and a few quirky techno tracks. I loved the soundtrack. It has a little bit of everything, comedy, drama, found love, lost love, and comeraderie in spades. The other thing it had was the `F word` in spades, so I would not recommend taking children unfamiliar with the word. Other than that,
Comedic and quirky. Redeemed bill murray in my books.
C`mon people. This movie was not the best of Anderson`s, but it still did have it`s moments. Why do you all always concentrate on being negative, especially that comment on "film snobs"...just because I didn`t like Cradle 2 The Grave doesn`t mean I don`t know what I`m talking about. If it looks like you WON`T understand it, go see The Incredibles instead, it`s more along your level
Save your money, big dissappointment
I WANT ME MONEY BACK
This was a great movie, hilarious, heartbreaking, quirky, one of the year`s best. The fact that this movie gets only 2 stars and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie gets four just baffles me, everyone on this site needs to smash their head against the wall. ****/*****
This movie was terrible: it didn`t make any sense, wasn`t funny, and was totally confusing! PLS save ur $$$ from this horrible movie, it`s not even worth a rental!
I never comment on movies like this but this movie is worth the talk. Moments of greatness followed by long strings of hopeless dribble! Great one liners and completely obscure comments but no substance, rythem or even reason at times. Verdict: SAVE YOUR MONEY
Instead of paying the money to watch the movie people should pool their money together to get the script burned.
If I had to compare it to something, this movie was not quit as good as the russian`s were against canada in the world juniors.
very funny in a strangest way, a must see i really liked it.
We made better movie`s than this when we were kids. It`s very insulting to one`s intelligence to think this was anything more than just a money grab. You`ll want to shoot yourself after watching this movie. So don`t. No substance at all. Were they high on drugs when they made this movie?
pretty good movie. Wasn`t too sure about it during the first half but definetly liked it by the end. Funny stuff if you get the humour intended.
Enough with Bill Murray already...he`s simply still `not-ready-for-primetime!` Lost in Translation was a bore-fest (except to waht I call `film-snobs!`)
Great movie!!! Best movie I`ve seen of 2004.
A "different" movie. You`ll either love it or hate it, there really is no inbetween. I wouldn`t recommend paying to see it at theatres, but it is worthwhile to rent.
Just what you would want from a Wes Anderson piece.
Really enjoyed it and saw it with a good audience. The production design was excellent (Anderson`s attention for detail is awesome) and the stop-motion animated creatures were wonderful. The humour was dry and not in your face, which I do like, and the movie was quite funny. Murray was great, as were Dafoe and Goldblum. I guess it will be a love/hate movie, like all of Anderson`s films (I guess they require an attention span or something), but I was definitely not disappointed.
THIS HAS TO BE THE WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. DIDN`T LAUGH ONCE AND I REALLY LOVE BILL MURRAY. WHAT A SHAME/ DON`T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS MOVIE.
I think you can safely ignore comments from anyone who cannot spell "horrible". Go see Sponge Bob, leave this great movie to the adults.
Good movie. Not a great movie. It had me laughing.
