I watched over half this film about 4 years ago, but never finished it. I finally re-watched the entire film over this weekend, thus the random movie review. The movie follows the life of Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti) a TV Producer that has three very different marriages. His first marriage is during his younger years when he doesn't have a lot of responsibilities and mostly runs around with his free roaming friend Boogie (Scott Speedman). Clara (Rachelle Lefevre) is a free spirited woman who Barney mostly is only together with because he believes she's pregnant. His second marriage is to someone only referred to as The "Second Mrs. P" (Minnie Driver) who is a wealthy Jewish girl who constantly is talking and nagging him. Then there's finally Miriam Grant (Rosamund Pike) the true love of his wife and eventually mother of his children. The film also co-stars Dustin Hoffman as Izzy Panofsky, Barney's father. The movie is very slow paced, but i overall enjoyed it as a drama. It's suppose to be more of a comedy, but it's more funny in the way it just shows how terrible choices can lead to a terrible life in some ways. Giamatti does very well as Barney and you feel for the guy, but you also kinda hate him because he's really an asshole still deep down inside. It's a good character piece showing the slow decline of a man who just doesn't know what he wants, but turns out he does have a soft spot as a romantic. Definitely, won't be for everyone, but has some great performances.
