    I saw the sneak tonight and I was impressed. Going in I was worried that they didn't have enough story for a complete movie. And I only like Will Ferrel in small doses. Well it worked.
    Will was kept in check by the director and the story built up very well. And the best part was that the story is fairly unique to movies.

    Plus Maggie G. was pretty hot as the leftist baker.

    doesn't look too funny from the previews, i can't stand emma thompson, she has that pretentious accent that grates on me.

    And the other bonus is you don't have to see will Ferrel's hairy butt.

    On the other side, you do still have to see fat, hairy man ass.

    it's not his typical fare, so that's refreshing.

    if you enjoy writing like "Being John Malkovich", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", or "The Truman Show" (to go way back) you'll prolly like this.

    Or "Adaptation".

    I love when Harold realizes how things must end and you want to go, "No!".

    we liked it a lot- but if you're looking for a comedy, look elsewhere (has some funny, clever moments)

    It was an interesting story, I thought the casting was great

    Pinto hasn't aged very well :mamoru:

    Saw it with the gf this weekend. I personally loved it. I went in with little expectations and was pleasantly surprised.

    LOVED it.
    If you're looking for a typical Will Ferrell laugh riot don't see it. But it was so cute and clever.

    I watched this last night. The movie was quite unique and the dialog was fairly impressive. The film met and exceeded expectations and I'm on the verge of giving it a 7 or 8/10 which is pretty high imo. This one would also make a great date movie.
