Intermittently amusing, distinctive, not always easy to digest

Joe,

I only saw one brief trailer and liked the quirkiness. If you are a TRUE romantic, you'll love this film. Look at the ratings, trust those. I saw the film with my 19-year old son yesterday: we both couldn't stop talking about how good of a film it was.

Great in parts, but felt like it was eye candy for pedophiles in others. Also, a strange unnecessary maliciousness was there. Disappointing--I could have loved it otherwise.

Aw, Jennifer. Yes, the girl was young and cute. I understand your comment about that. But what a lovely film. The casting, the story line, humor, suspense, childhood memories (maybe more so for boys/men). And the painting at the end? Wow.

Eye candy for pedophiles you say? No doubt thrown in Wes Anderson's good friend Roman Polanski...

Exploitation films like Last House on the Left are pedophiliac. Anderson doesn't move into that territory. He tells the story of two kids exploring another person for the first time and does it in a way that is not exploitative. It takes talent to keep from crossing that line.

Well what do you think he should have done? Not put in a female character that is younger then 18 just because some pedophile somewhere might fin her sexually attractive?

Rotten? Really? Look at everyone else's reviews.
