    What a waste of film. I can't believe I watched the whole film. This was listed under romantic/Comedy and it is neither. I don't recommend anyone to watch this film. It's just pointless.

    probably the best adaptation of a Roth novel(la), which isn't an easy thing to accomplish. it is, of course a watered down version of the story missing a lot of the nuances of Roth's superb writing- but is entertaining throughout. The dramatic impact of the end is far less effective on screen though.

    I know I saw it and it was okay, but I don't remember much about it.
