What a frustrating, stupid movie.

Haven't seen it, but I like Brad Pitt.

seems like a weird plot.

Weird plot? Yep. Uninteresting too.

I like Brad Pitt too. And he's fine here. So is everyone else. But this movie's just such a waste of talent. Good actors, a director capable of greatness... and a crap film.

It was just one cliche visual after another, with a script so platitude-soaked I was waiting to see if it was going to turn into a joke, but it never quite did.

Pitt's got some interesting films coming up.

Yeah. I left the theater in disbelief.
