    I don’t see myself ever watching this ….. but I do love Clare Forlani ….. I’d say that Lisa Loeb and Forlani started the whole cute-hipster-chick-with-glasses thing that still exists today.

      I’m not exactly sure why it has negativity attached to it over the years, aside from the length, it’s an extremely well acted character film and I am utterly in LOVE with Sir Anthony in it.

  2. I haven’t seen this in a while but Brad and Anthony are a great duo.

    PS. Look at young Brad when he was a pretty man before he became a grunged up “serious” actor.

      Brad was still pretty grungy and serious at this point. Post 12 Monkeys and 7 Years in Tibet (and Se7en — the # trilogy)

      I really enjoyed them together, and for not usually loving Forlani, she was a good lead in this, though she squints too often for my taste. You can see when she’s trying to look introspective she squints. I do the same thing when I try and smile bigger at someone. We just end up looking sleepy or constipated.

    I couldn’t watch this. Just couldn’t.

    I thought the movie was only okay. As I have a really bad short-term memory and as I saw the movie over 10 years ago, I can’t remember much of it to be honest! And I’m probably the only woman on the planet who doesn’t fancy Brad Pitt?!

    Yeah, the length definitely falls in the “comfort zone” for me. I’d call this movie a guilty pleasure, but it really isn’t “bad” enough in any particular sense for me to feel guilty about anything – it just isn’t the kind of thing I’d figure I’d like.

    My favourite scene is the peanut butter tasting. Totally sets the standard for whimsy – hokeyness meets the unknown forces of the supernatural.

    The music is top shelf and this is where you can always go when you wanna get your hands on that Over The Rainbow cover that people love so much.
