Great movie. I got the hype from both sides. Some folks told me it was the greatest film they had seen in a long time, others said it was a waste of 2 hours of their life.
I say it’s a great film and will agree it was a sigh of relief when I actually enjoyed watching the whole film. Sure the end was a little cheesy, but at least the whole of the film made up for it. Now, I don’t know if the role was worth an oscar nomination for Bill Murray, but I’m not going to argue against it. Glad he got the nomination. The story was good, the acting was good and I felt pretty wrapped up in the story.
It’s always a good thing when you enjoy a movie so much that when it comes to an end you are disappointed because you want to keep watching. With that you can argue maybe it wrapped up too quickly? Regardless, this is a fine rental or something to be added and bumped up in your Netflix queue.
