Yet another good movie that doesn’t seem to be appreciated at its real value. Just look at the top of the poster – it says it stars: “George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and goat”! Perfect! The whole movie feels like an exchange of (not so) subtle jokes within a group, and, of course, outsiders who don’t get it, feel frustrated and hate the movie. However, it’s good satire, does not waste acting talent, and has an opening scene that makes me laugh each time I remember it. The mix of serious and unserious is skillfully agitated.
It’s fun, witty, and the four main actors make absolutely great roles.
The humour in this movie doesn’t appeal to everyone. If you don’t think Lyn Cassady’s (George Clooney) moustache is funny, than you probably won’t be amused by the rest of the film either 🙂
Would I see it again? – Yes
My Rating (1 to 10): 8
Don’t stare at goats – who knows what might happen!
