Anyone else seen it? Great acting, even from the woman who cannot really act.

Cam Sat 15-Jan-05 21:00:38

Can't act: Julia Roberts
Too pervy in this to be gorge: Clive Owen

Oh do go and see it, you won't regret it even if you hate it (that will only make sense if you go to see it!)

I went to see it with a girlfriend so we could freely laugh (and parts of it are hysterical).When I told dh about it I said shades of "Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolf?" and then my dh told me its by the same director.

hark at culture vulture!
hows yer baby s?

Cam Sat 15-Jan-05 21:05:54

Oh its far from naff, its quite heavy in parts and quite uncomfortable in parts and completely watchable all through. You hang on every word. I can't say anymore now until you've all seen it as I don't want to spoil it for you.

Cam Mon 17-Jan-05 12:39:41

DH refuses to see this as he says too heavy and cold. He wants to see Clint Eastwood's film about the girl boxer which I refuse to see.
It'll have to be Meet The Fokkers then...!

I saw the play too, it was gripping, does it do the play justice?

strawberry Mon 17-Jan-05 13:47:34

Hmmm difference of opinion here. Thought it was pants. Clive Owen was the best in it by a long shot and Julia Roberts was true to form for me (ie: wooden). No chemistry between any of the actors - not good in a 'love' story.

MrsDoolittle Mon 17-Jan-05 13:52:03

I was wondering about going to see this tonight. What kind of genre is it? Dh is an awful intellectual and sometimes I find stuff he enjoys too slowwwwwww

Davros, I think your dh may change his mind when he sees Natalie Portman in a g-string.
Strawberry, I think its more of a "power" story.

Davros Tue 18-Jan-05 22:53:22

Ha! Today he said he hadn't refused, but he had..... He's put me off it now though, does sound rather serious.

No, it's very funny as well
