"Some of us may go out wishing for something meatier, edgier."

That's funny. That's exactly what your wife said about you when she was with me.

Actually, MOST of us (at least all 25 professional critics that I'm on first-name terms with) might go out wishing for something in the OPPOSITE direction. Don't believe me?
"District 9" was indeed dramatic. No complaints there. However, it was too gory and had WAY too much swearing for my taste. "The Truman Show" is neither in any way, which is exactly why I go out wishing for something more like it.

Seems a real shame that your "thoughtful" review lowered the percentage for this wonderful film. I am NOT a Carey fan and was dragged to this movie. But it was superb. You should not be reviewing movies if you have to pan any movie that doesn't meet some ridiculously high "meatiness" and "edginess" standard that YOU have set. Most of us long for a really great story and really great acting, which this movie has in abundance. We don't say "bad movie" because it isn't "edgy" enough. In fact, most of us were SICK TO DEATH of edgy 20 min. after it became so popular, so pullleeeeeeze!!

This was a ridiculous review. You didn't get the movie, and to try and save face you're blaming it on the movie rather than the fact that you are a RETARD.

Hey, at least unlike Peter Rainer, Rob didn't insult people for liking it. Go attack that asshole, he says you're all stupid if you think the movie is profound.

I think he was just looking for the typical quick-cut, blood-bath of an action film.
