Due Date. Some very funny moments, but as it went on, it wasn't that good and was boring at times. Worth seeing just for some of those funny parts, though.

This film did very well at the Genie Awards, Canada's Oscars, but of course I haven't seen it here. What did you think?



bman, a very well executed movie and intelligent by design. Now that said, not too sure how enjoyable it is overall.

As you know, Giamatti holds both an undergrad and a Masters degree from Yale, where his father also taught.

This is not a movie for the simple minded, or the indolent in life, and one must be somewhat benevolent and magnanimous while viewing.

As you noted, this is a Mordecai Richler screenplay. Wink
Inside Job

meh. when documentaries are so blatantly one-sided, they lose all credibility IMO. i'm in no means in support of what happened, but when you take such a blatant stance on a subject, it's all too easy to call your entire message into doubt.

i liken it to someone raising their voice during an argument. if your point can't stand on its own, it probably isn't a very solid point to begin with.

I agree but it is always important to get another version of what really happened than the 'official' version.

Well, at least we can all agree that Michael Moore never takes a position and remains totally neutral with his propaganda documentaries. Roll Eyes Wink

Oh my, you clearly are not well-read. Frown

Try reading Richler, and just perhaps the obvious irony and mockery would be seen. Roll Eyes
The Men Who Stare at Goats -- strange and somewhat interesting; not terrible but can't say it was good either

Internationally Speaking -- documentary about what others in foreign countries think about the U.S. and its foreign policies. Could have been an interesting movie if the filmmaker hadn't taken such a one-sided, liberal approach. I lean toward liberal, but this movie was so slanted it was silly.

How was it? Thinking about going tomorrow.


It is enjoyable. But not a movie to ponder too much; the plot has some holes in it.
