I read the reviews on this site and some people seem to think that this is a wasted opportunity to make a bad movie. OK, why not? It's not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination. I really do think that this is a nice and thought-provoking movie, but not a great movie. This movie is slightly more like The Dark Knight than Spiderman or Iron Man. If you go into this movie thinking you are going to watch a great movie, you will be disappointed. There are parts that are funny, but not all of them. I thought that this movie was over-the-top with the violence. I don't like violence in movies. It usually gets over-the-top and makes me cringe, but this movie was way over-the-top and it was not necessary. I also did not like the fact that they turned over-the-top in the 'burbs with the prostitute character. This movie is a movie about a situation that is sooo hard to even understand, but they went over-the-top with it. Now, I guess some of the parts that were over-the-top are needed for the plot and you could say that it made sense in the movie. But, the over-the-top part is ridiculous. All in all, this movie is fun and worth seeing. Maybe if you are a kid that doesn't have to think a lot, you may enjoy this movie. I was a bit bored at times, but I can see why some people enjoy this movie.

It would be easy to expect this movie to be a wasted effort to make a black comedy film on a large scale, but this movie isn't that. It's very well paced, and I feel that the director and the cast/actors, made a decent film. However, I can see that it would've been a good film for a school project. I hope that by the time the school year starts, this movie has been seen. I hope that there is more movies like this made.

I actually liked this movie a lot more than most people. I think many people expect it to be another Grumpy Old Men or so. It was more like a comedy. There was no way there was anyone in the movie that was trying to be serious, or trying to be funny. The story line was good and kept me entertained. This movie has a great message. It shows the wrong way to raise your kids. I think it is very realistic that parents can bring up bad choices and bad things that happen to their kids. And they can't go too far with that because they are still children. I think this movie is a great movie for people who are raising kids. It is definitely worth a watch.

After reading the bad reviews on this film, I almost didn't see it, and I was very surprised when I did. The film starts out very well and leads you to believe it is going to be a typical teen comedy about dumb teenagers but that is never the case. It is funny, funny, funny, but it is also a very well-made film about school problems and ultimately how not to be a good person in high school. One thing I didn't understand was why Ben Stiller decided to act in this film and not in one of his other works. The cast in this film is very good, it features Tim Robbins, Sandra Bullock, and Ben Stiller, who also wrote and produced the film. It is good to see him do something that is so different from what he does in the film he is in now. The story is very interesting, you know the good one. It is a good story about about teenage problems and their effect on the school. I really liked this movie, it is a very funny and very good film. 7/10

I think the difference is that the first one was a much darker one, and the second one was more of a comedy which is a good thing because it was just much funnier and not a big laugh out loud kind of thing. The first one had a very dark story about a family that lived with sex addiction and drugs. I am going to not reveal what that story was about, but that was something that was really bad for me, as I had very high expectations for this film and they didn't hold up to them. This was better than the first one, but it wasn't great and it didn't do much for me either. I don't want to say that this is better than the first one because it is not. This is not a perfect film, but it was very good and probably my favorite of the bunch. I would say it is worth seeing and I would recommend it to anyone who likes the second one, or anyone who liked the first one, but it doesn't hold up to the first one. It's still good but it was just more of a comedy, and it was not nearly as dark. 8.9/10

Riot. I'd already seen "Riot", an interesting story about public school kids and the way it's used for riots. It was good. "Riot" is better. It's much more detailed, with the events that are depicted. With "Riot", they could've left the lead character in prison, and gotten the movie down to its strong point: the riot, and the kids who are affected by it. The same thing happened here. They can't. Not even one of them could ever just leave their current incarceration, not even for a minute. And, unfortunately, "Riot" is not as good a movie as the first one. It does a good job of showing, again, how powerful and effective police can be, but the movie is better, at least, than the second one. I don't know how this one got such an awesome rating, it's just an average movie. It's good, but it's not as good as the first one. Only the ending is really good, I think. It's a little bit of a tragedy that the only thing that was done was the horrible rape scene. I'll never be able to forget that scene. Not even for a second. I think that the violence in this movie is so much more prevalent, that it's not even funny anymore. The idea that even the actions of the main character could lead to the destruction of his family is ridiculous. He's killed people's life for some reasons, he had to kill his family. He does it for a reason. I don't care that much about what he did, but that his family was all destroyed because of it. That was just silly. However, the ending wasn't as bad as I feared. It just ends, and it feels wrong to keep the audience in suspense for a while, and then in a way, that was a good thing. If I'm to watch something like this again, I think I'll watch it again for the ending.

Being a 22 year old college student, it was nice to see a movie that was based on something I could relate to. It's a good movie if you think that college is a waste of time and a waste of life. If you think that college is a waste of life, then you will hate this movie. The main character is not likable and he's annoying in this movie. The main girl's friendship is also very shallow and unimportant. There are so many empty characters that nobody likes or cares about. There is also an overuse of needless swearing. I didn't feel anything from any of the characters in this movie. The movie seems to be over the top and really lacks of plot. I would say that the whole movie is too long, and too much time is spent on cliches. If you are tired of watching these types of movies and are in a slump, this movie will be good for you.

It's always fun to look back at a movie, and I was glad to find out that Robin Williams played himself in the most memorable movie ever made. This movie is really about a man named Mason, played by Ben Stiller, who is involved in a terrible accident. Now he can't move his arms and legs, and he can't talk. Then, a nurse named Emily, played by Helen Hunt, calls Mason over and the two work together to teach him to talk again. Once he is able to talk, he begins to come up with a great plan. You can say all you want about this movie, but when you think about it, there are only a few movies that are better than this one. I have seen this movie about 30 times now, and it is still entertaining. I really wish I had gotten the opportunity to see this movie when it was originally released, because I could watch it over and over. I know I would have enjoyed it more if I could have seen it in theaters when it came out. The movie is also the funniest movie of 2004. It's definitely one of my favorite comedies, and I can't wait for the DVD release. My Rating: 7

I don't see where many people are taking the film too seriously. Its premise is a clever concept, and is executed nicely. But it has a few too many plot holes. First off, the camera work is terrible. It looks like someone tried to make a movie on a tripod, and it just didn't work. A good camera is a must, and the lighting throughout is very subdued. Secondly, I didn't like the look of the film. I'm not talking about the textures. They are very minimal. They are even lacking that of gritty street-life, or dangerous youth gangs. This film could be called semi-thriller, and it is, but it takes a bit too long to get there. There are several instances where characters talk about a dog, and the pacing isn't a killer. Finally, the film jumps around quite a bit, which isn't always a bad thing. And the first half of the film, I was literally bored by it. All in all, I would recommend this film for people that enjoy a good story with a bit of tension. And if you are looking for a different type of film, its the best bet. Thats all. 7/10

The first thing that struck me about this film was the overall good tone, a light-hearted, yet serious look at teen problems, with a lot of the jokes revolving around sex and drugs. It was refreshing to see a film where the majority of the jokes revolved around sex, and not the dumb ones. This was a refreshing change, and it's a shame that it didn't receive the attention it deserved. Although the characters are some of the worst parts of the film, they were very well done. All the actors played their parts well, and the dialogue between them was very natural. The way the film was shot was also very effective. I think the film was shot well, and the music was very good. The film was funny, but the jokes weren't as funny as the others, and I think that's what made it a good film. The film was more of a drama than a comedy, and that's a shame because I thought the jokes were great. I also think that the movie didn't need a sequel, because it could have been a very good film without it. But I do think that the film could have been a little bit better, and I'm glad that they decided to do a sequel. Overall, I thought that it was a great film, and I think that the humor was really good. I'm glad that they made a sequel, because it could have been really bad if they didn't. The only reason I can see that this film wasn't nominated for an Academy Award was because of the writing. But that doesn't mean that the film was bad, it just wasn't good. Overall, I give this film an 8 out of 10.

This movie is very well done. I was surprised that it was a film for children and not a horror movie, because it was extremely funny. The only real downside to the film is that the storyline is a little bit predictable. However, if you have a child that is like 8 or 9 years old, you will definitely enjoy this film.

It's a shame that this film didn't have more mainstream exposure. It is a perfect example of how a decent story can be made and yet still be entertaining. I have watched it about 3 times, and I am still wondering how it is possible that a movie like this could be made. The acting was great, the script was great, and the direction was great. I was completely entranced throughout the film. It is the perfect movie to watch with friends, and I highly recommend it. It's worth it. 10/10

The lead actress is Natalie Portman, well known for playing leading female roles in the "Snow White" movies, though it's probably more that this role was written for her. She stars as Olivia, a streetwise young woman who's promiscuous, with a drinking problem, and an anti-social behavior. She works for a motorcycle company in California, and she meets the guy she really wants to be with: Brian (Cameron Diaz), a high-powered attorney. Olivia's personality is more similar to Holly Hunter's, but she is just as messed up. When Brian is asked to take her back to his house, Olivia begins to smoke marijuana, and the argument is good but f*c's it! I was wondering how this would end, but it all ends up pretty well. The direction by Paul Thomas Anderson is still pretty good, and I would like to have seen a more convincing relationship between Olivia and Brian. Diaz did a good job in her character, but she wasn't on screen for too long, as she was in the "The Fighter". I didn't really like Diaz's acting, and she seemed a bit awkward sometimes, but there were times when she really looked like she was trying to get this character right. The supporting cast was good, with characters played by Samuel L. Jackson and William H. Macy. Jackson, the narrator of this movie, is great, because he tells his story in such a way that makes it really believable. Macy also did a good job, and he had some of the funniest lines. This was a great movie to watch, and I recommend it.

The story is a great tale of revenge and redemption, and of the evil that can be lurking in the shadows. The movie was wonderfully acted by the entire cast, with a special mention for Jennifer Lopez, who gives a great performance as a little girl who loses her father, and is caught up in a world of drugs, sex, and crime. The direction by David Ayer was great, and the script by Phil Lord and Chris Miller was just as good. I recommend this movie to everyone. It is a great story of redemption and revenge. It is a great movie, and I highly recommend it to everyone.

This film was a great movie to watch. I was very entertained and I laughed a lot. I love how the two main characters did not look alike at all. I was really surprised by how well the movie was made. I think it is a good movie to watch.

I went to see this film at a preview with my best friend, and we both really enjoyed it. It was very funny, very well acted, and very well written. It was also very well directed. I was really surprised by the amount of violence in it. I think that is what I expected, but it was not all that. It was not just a bunch of kids getting their butts kicked, it was a really great character study. It is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen, and I think that a lot of people who aren't fans of teen movies are going to like it too. It is really funny, and it is really entertaining. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and go see it. It's definitely a movie you will not forget.

I was surprised at the lack of critics reviews here on IMDb, but when I read the mixed reviews I thought it was worth a try. The critics here were generally harsh on the movie. This movie is a comedy, not a drama. And the comedy is certainly better than most of the drama, if that makes any sense. The cast was very good, especially the two leads, who played off each other very well. The movie is very entertaining, although the ending is a little bit of a letdown, but it's not that bad. The movie is not as dark as it's reputation, but it's not as good as it's reputation. The movie was good, but it wasn't as good as I expected. It was good, but it wasn't as good as I expected. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it was good. I would recommend this movie to people who like comedies, and not to people who like drama, because I think it's a comedy that's a drama. I recommend this movie to people who like movies, and not to people who like movies, because it's a movie that's not really a movie. And I think that's what it's supposed to be. It's not a movie, but a movie.

The film is about a teenager named Adrian, who has to deal with a large amount of issues in his life. At first, he is angry and gets involved with a gang. As time goes on, he begins to feel more and more like a man. When he meets a girl named Lindsay, he begins to care for her, and she in turn begins to care for him. The film shows the main character's growth as he realizes he can be happy without the gangs, and his growth as a person. It also shows his sister's growth as she becomes a woman. It also shows the evolution of Lindsay as a person. The film is very funny and funny at times, and the cast is amazing. It also has a great message about dealing with the problems in life. The only problem with this film is the ending. It was really hard to watch, and the ending just didn't make sense to me. The end was just too forced and it was really confusing. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes comedies. I rate this film 9/10.

This is the story of a few people who make it big in the entertainment business. They have a lot of money, and they spend it on drugs, sex, and women. This movie was great, and it showed that there are good people in the world. It also showed that there are bad people, and they are the ones that should be punished. This movie was very funny, and it was a good movie to watch.

I was not expecting much from this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is very good for kids. It is very good for the whole family. The only thing that was disappointing was that there were a few scenes that were too close to the actual death of the child. If the scene was to be in the background, it would have been better. It is the same in many other movies. So, it is good for a family movie. So, if you like the movie, you should watch it.

This movie is a mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy. I loved it! It was not only funny but also exciting, thrilling and quite sad. It is not only about a girl and her friends but also about family and about life. If you have a heart then you will love this movie. The movie shows us that life is about choices. It also shows that the choices we make can change the world we live in. I loved it and I will love it more in the future. I am not a big fan of the original, but I will be watching it again.
