This movie is maddening. It relies on the utter and complete stupidity of one of the main characters; that is just plain bad lazy writing. Really, I just wanted her to get killed she was so stupid. Throughout this entire movie I just wanted to throw something at the screen.
Skip it if you don't like hate watching
Pretty good, but some things made it annoying for me, bringing down the score. First, it was pretty predictable; I had it completely figured out by one visual clue very early on. Second, Hugh Jackman's character was over the top; WAY too much testosterone. I was rooting against him (but for the girls) through most of the movie. Meanwhile, his wife was a charicature; typical portrayal of women as weak, helpless and useless in a crisis; annoying.
Jake Gyllenhaal's character and delivery were great, though.
Boring, boring, boring. Stupid. I wish I'd looked up the audience score before watching ; I went by the 94% shown by my cable provider. I hate critics; they are so full of crap. This was terrible. The emperor has no clothes.
Wow. I really liked the actors, but the story was the most ridiculous (and offensive) thing I've ever seen. Several reviews say it was written and directed exclusively by men, so that makes sense. NO WOMAN on the planet would behave as the main character did. This is a rape glorification movie, period. Quite sick, to be honest. Totally, and completely ridiculous, right to the last scene where the best friend of the main character moves in with her after kicking out her husband that the main character had an affair with. Yeah, that makes sense; kick out your husband, but move in with the woman he had an affair with? Silliness.
