Johnny Brannonsaid on Thursday, July 12, 2012 3:43:49 PMVery good movie. I was surprised by the mixed reviews. I thought Pine's character should have come clean a little earlier in the movie.
John Arthur Beamansaid on Saturday, July 07, 2012 6:28:26 PMI could have easily felt frustrated that Sam wasn't coming clean a lot sooner, but that quickly became a small point. There were just too many good things happening on screen to pick it apart for a minor problem.

Reply from Richard Roeper Hunter:
I was KIDDING. Obviously Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde and Michelle Pfeiffer are among the most attractive human beings on the planet.
Bensaid on Sunday, July 01, 2012 7:51:22 PMDid anyone think the direction could have been a lot better? Performances, story, A. Direction, C.
His shots felt forced, calculated--like he was trying to do something rather than doing it.

Reply from Richard Roeper Thanks Steven. Fixed it.
Alansaid on Thursday, June 28, 2012 9:52:26 PMHaven't seen it, but I read the script a while ago, and thought it was a well-written and intelligent script that offered rounded roles for its cast, giving them a chance to play comedy and pathos. I thought the trailer looked tacky, but I am glad to hear that K-dog pulled off the promise of his script.
