    I liked it but some of the dialogue was over done.

    I give it a B-. Not for everyone, most of the people I went with hated it.

    It probably would have been better had Natalie Portman actually got naked in order to play a striper, instead of hiding behind a g-string. BTW... her butt looks GREAT in the movie :)

    Was the plot that strong? Seemed a little weak from the previews.

    saw it last night, i love natalie portman, but they shouldn't have put julia roberts in this movie...that woman rambles like no other and ruined it for me. TOO MUCH DIALOG!

    Too much dialog? That was part of the beauty of the movie. If you don't want dialog go watch National Treasure...

    Perhaps one of the best movies w/ the most intriguing characters in quite a while...

    well, julia roberts rambling to me is not beauty...i thought the other characters in the movie were wonderful and enjoyed the movie for the most part. i wish they would have chosen someone else to play Anna though :hs:

    SOME of the dialouge was brilliant, but I felt like I was watching a 2 hour long soap opera.
    The spaces between the really good writing was too long.

    + no real sex scenes :wtc:

    I'd say it was like a second rate "As Good As It Gets"

    yeah, you have to pay attention to the 1st two lines or so, of every scene to catch when it takes place

    I didn't enjoy it at all. It is way more messed up than I was expecting, but wasn't my real problem with it. I thought the plot was weak (you took my photo so now I love you and after I stalk you and hook you up with a freak, then you magically love me too? riiiiiiiiight the whole thing was just too forced), and the time jumps too frequently.

    I liked it a lot... but it is easy to see how this movie can be loved or hated.
    I thought the writing was really good, and had an intensity that you just don't see very much.
    These characters are definitely not likeable, but they are well-done, by a strong cast.

    i liked it. there was definitely some things that could have been changed (like every movie), but lately i'm really glad to find good movies that don't rely on the explosions to carry it. (not that i don't like a good explosion flick) but i rented this one the same night i rented monty python and the holy grail so what do i know lol

    I thought it jumped around too much. There were some good scenes though. I thought Julia Roberts did a great job

    not at all what i'd hoped it would be. natalie portman was aweomse in it though (that scene where he breaks up with her) and she's damned hot and that kissing scene with jude law and jessica roberts when they first meet was intense too. other than that teh plot was nothing special just a few good scenes

    horrible, horrible movie.

    even the strip club scenes didn't make up for the shitty dialogue and bad acting

    What a weird movie, but ive never been so attracted to portman.
    its not about the striping but the black straight hair.

    What isn't sexier than Natalie Portman walking with her tight white shirt down NYC? God damn!
