...load of old cobblers.

I sat through three hours of that nonsense and I have only myself to blame.

Benjamin went from looking like a wizened little cauliflower to looking like, well, Brad Pitt, but he was consistently dull throughout. What was the point of it? Was it supposed to be a touching love story?

I feel untouched.

I didn't like it either.

The book is only 28 (kindle) pages. How the hell did they make it into 3 hours of film?!

I didn't enjoy that film either.

Hmm, the fact they wrung three hours worth of film out of 28 pages gives me a clue now as to why it was so crap.

Waste of life?

Gave up watching after the first hour I think, one of the worst films ever.

I cried at the end when he turned into a little boy with dementia.
but I cry at most stuff nowadays

We lasted 10 minutes.
We had a rare child free night so snuggled down with champagne and treats under the duvet to watch it. Then gave up and put Life of Brian on instead!

I haven't seen it and shan't bother after your reviewsgrin

I walked out in the cinema. Very dull.

PlasticCircus Mon 27-Apr-15 18:58:50

This is definitely up there as one of the worst films I have ever seen. Incredibly dull!

Snooze-fest.

I thought it may be 'guy' film as OH and his mates really like it. They normally like stuff mainstream action films.

If you think that one was dull you should watch 'The tree of life'. Vapid bullshit.

I quite liked it.

bloggers is Tree of Life the one with Hugh Jackman?

BackforGood Mon 27-Apr-15 19:59:25

I quite liked it - I've certainly seen a lot worse.

chickenfuckingpox Mon 27-Apr-15 20:02:34

Stanky Mon 27-Apr-15 20:05:12

We liked it. Dh almost cried at the end. Almost. smile

DonVitoCorleone Mon 27-Apr-15 20:08:07

I fell asleep halfway through

PrincessFiorimonde Mon 27-Apr-15 20:15:34

I enjoyed it, but I watched it on a long, long flight, so my standards might have been a bit low.

Tiredemma Mon 27-Apr-15 20:16:11

ahh. I loved it

icelollycraving Mon 27-Apr-15 20:29:19

I loved it. I sobbed until I took to my bed. I think I was heavily pregnant.
