I LOVE the premise of this movie. But I HATE the execution. It is NOT confusing, it's just boring. The story could have been told in about 10 minutes. Instead, the movie drags on endlessly with almost nothing being added to the story/plot.

Watch this movie at your own risk, but be ready with the fast forward button handy.

Pointless and boring best describes this movie. It drags along at a snail's pace without anything interesting whatsoever happening. Bad acting, cliched characters and a story that makes no actual sense.

Well, I just read some of the reviews of this amazing flick, on Amazon. (sigh….) Basically, the negative commentary seems to boil down to this: "It makes my brain hurt! I be confoosed!" One must assume that they saw "Jim Carrey" in the billing, and were expecting another Ace Ventura sequel…?

Thinking just isn't in style in this country anymore, is it? Reading those so-called "reviews" of this gem is like reading a page or two of historical "wisdom" from a certain attention-craving, ex-(part-time)-governor from Alaska. It's just sad to realize that our education system has really failed that badly. Ah well, pointing at lemmings never makes them anything but sillier. And I'm glad to note that, like here, the favorable (and thoughtful) reviews far outnumber the simplistic spewings.

About the movie:

This critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning screenplay provides a typically brilliant, quirky and chancy role for Kate Winslet, who has opted to be in some of the most interesting (and intelligent) flix in the last two decades (and I ain't just talkin' 'bout Titanic, folks). I have learned, in my cable-and-dish meanderings, that Kate is just NEVER in a bad or boring movie. She seems to hold out for the most challenging and diverse roles, and throws herself into them full-tilt. Needless to say, this film is no exception. The supporting cast is also very good, and well-selected.

The real surprise here is Carrey, who is almost exclusively known as a master of silly, physical comedy. With the possible exception of The Truman Show, this may well be his best (and is certainly his most sensitive) role, ever. His portrayal reminds me of several people I've known throughout life, and it's the sign of a great actor that he's able to make someone so different from his "normal" self seem so real, and complex.

Interesting on several tiers, this movie definitely has its hilarious moments, and is continuously entertaining. Though billed as a "romantic fantasy", the film also crosses into the realm of smart, speculative fiction-- reminiscent of Harlan Ellison, or Phillip K. Dick. Yet it also manages to keep its plot points grounded in the emotional realities common to anyone who's ever suffered for love. And there are some quite touching moments, which might just have you in tears, as well.

Well Done!
