I am a friend of Judd Apatow. I enjoyed his first film Happy Gilmore and I really enjoyed The 40 Year Old Virgin. I really enjoyed Funny People too but I was expecting more of it. I liked the first Judd Apatow film American Wedding. I am just as impressed with this second film. It was a great movie. Judd Apatow was very good as a director. He understood what made a movie work. He was not afraid to take the story into a more mature direction. He also made the movie fun. His movies are a little more lighthearted than average but still very enjoyable. This movie is not as much fun as you might think. It is very different than most other movies that I have seen lately. The story is not very original but I found it interesting. It is not just a revenge movie. There are some parts of the story that make you think. I think this movie is going to be one of the best of 2008. If you are into Judd Apatow's movies and you like his films, then I would recommend this movie. I rate it 10 out of 10.

Kirsten Dunst is truly a real beauty! If you are like me, who is a sucker for all the schmaltz and clear thinking, then this movie will totally strike a chord in your mind. Let's be honest, everybody knows what's happening and thinks it's perfectly natural. No need to be ashamed, because everyone knows it's what they are supposed to be doing. And that's exactly what is happening here. The movie is a great metaphor for how society is actually supposed to be: small minded, full of greed and illusions, absolutely superficial, and very controlling. Nobody knows what's going on. Everybody is a hypocrite. Everybody is not right. Everybody is full of selfishness. Everybody has to do whatever it takes to get ahead. If it weren't for the mob, no one would do anything. And that is what the movie is saying. The Mob is trying to control everybody. And in their grand scheme, it is the only way they can accomplish that goal. That's the way it's supposed to be. Everybody is a mob. Everyone is just following orders. And as a result, the world is completely controlled by the mob. Even the kids are so dumb, that they don't even know what's going on. In the end, you'll probably say, "Yeah, I get it now, how stupid. But you know what? It is what it is. And I know that the world is full of corruption, and it's always been, but it just takes a lot of people to change it." And you're right. Everybody is full of greed, and they all do what they're told. The movie is very deep and true, and the message of the film is great. But it's so good, that you will probably never forget it. I would suggest you to see it. You'll never forget it.

This movie is one of the best I have seen. If you are looking for a good drama, look no further. This movie is a tale of love and revenge. You will not be disappointed if you watch this movie. The cast and crew of the movie, the director, actors, etc. all did a great job making this movie. The movie will be remembered for a long time. The music is haunting and is at times amazing. The dialogue was great. The actors were very good. And if you haven't seen this movie yet, please do so, it is worth it. I can't stress how good this movie is, it is a must see!

I think it's a great film. I can't decide if I like it or not. It's not my thing. It's just there in the background. I just like the way it was made. It's interesting, like a drama in a medium. Some people have given it a bad rating, but I can't see why they would. If you like the movie, you should definitely see it. The movie isn't perfect. The director didn't know how to use the camera and the editing was very bad. I can't really say what it was, but I was frustrated when it was over. But when it was over, I was still disappointed. I was disappointed because I just wanted to enjoy the film for what it is. If you want to be depressed, this is the film for you. If you're an open-minded person, go and see it. If you want to see a really good movie, go and see it. If you're an angry person, you should probably avoid it. It's really hard to watch.

It's one of those films that's so much more than just a good story. This film is about the journey, about the journey of discovering who you are and what you are capable of. And even more than that, it's about the journey of a beautiful woman, a stunning woman. The story is about Diane and her journey to become a woman and to find out what it is that she is capable of and what she's willing to do to achieve it. She and Vincent (a man of extraordinary power and wealth) have a unique relationship. He is the perfect man who can control everything and she's the perfect woman who can surrender herself to him. His power and his wealth give them the tools they need to achieve their dreams and when they realize they are not like the men in their lives, they have to make the decision to make a change. The man is revealed to be a fraud and he has to choose between what he's told and what he's been told. Diane decides to do what's right and Vincent is made to see that it's not the man who's going to be the one that needs to change but him. This is a story that speaks to the viewer in a way that makes them think and feel. It's an emotional film with enough grit to pull you in and make you feel and think in a way that is not easy to accomplish.

Once more, Diane van Veldheer, our heroine, is a true artist. Because of her past life as a slave, she had been able to live all her life in a comfortable existence in the Dutch countryside, with her parents, her brother, and her boyfriend. But when her parents were killed in a political assassination, her family and her boyfriend, who is in prison for the murder of his family, were forced to leave her. They had no money, and had to search for work. Then, Diane van Veldheer, as a young girl, had been able to give up her 'fantasy' and become a 'real' woman. She learned to work, to eat and to express herself. She knew how to wear a certain clothes, and how to behave herself in society. She had become a 'real' woman. Then, she had to decide, whether she wanted to continue her life as a slave, or to work as a free woman. She chose to be free, and she was able to become a real artist. Diane's father, who had died a few years before, had been a very poor man. He had been working hard to provide for his daughter and had never been able to get any money. Now, the real father of Diane is gone. He cannot provide his daughter any money for her future, so the only thing left is to continue living as a slave. And Diane is able to do it. What a wonderful story. I like movies with this kind of themes, and I always have, and always will, look for such films. There are many, but this is my favorite. The best part is the soundtrack: sometimes with a touch of the blues, sometimes with a touch of the symphonic. Because of the music, you can tell when a film is about to get more serious, or to be more dramatic. The two protagonists are portrayed as two different men, both on the wrong side of the law. The music was well composed, and I like the 'old style' or the 'new style' of that music, when a film is supposed to be one of those old film, not to mention the 'old style' of the music when the music has been re-recorded. It is like that, especially when Diane, in the second half of the film, wants to dress up, and she is able to do that. You can tell that she is playing a part in the film. The music is accompanied by a very beautiful ballet, that was well performed by every actor and actress. I have not seen this film since my early teens, and I was only able to watch it because my father had arranged the DVD for me. Now, I have watched it several times, and I am able to look for a little more details. There is a lot of effort in this film, but the end is

Laurie Lively is a very unique woman. She was the first African American to win an Oscar for Best Actress in the 1960's. She went on to play a key role in the African American civil rights movement in the 1960's. And, in spite of all of this, Laurie, despite some of her political and cultural prominence, never really made it in Hollywood. She has played a variety of roles in her life. From The Professional to The Private Life of Benedict Cumberbatch, to full-on roles as a human right lawyer, a Nazi, a Chinese-American anarchist, a black nun, a pregnant nun, a hippie, and many others. The reason that Laurie is so notable is that she has always been able to take on any character that she has ever been asked to play. Her range and range of acting talent is amazing. That is one of the things that makes Laurie such a great actress. The other reason Laurie is so great is that she really understands the nuances of a character. You can really see her deep emotional love for a character. You can really see her caring for that character. In fact, there is one scene in this movie that I thought was very moving, and that is when Laurie goes to the headquarters of the Black Panthers in Chicago and meets their leader Bobby Seale. He's an old, frail man. His entire body is covered in bruises. They say that it was very hard for Bobby to take that first step on his own as a Black Panther, but it was certainly a huge step. He had never been a part of anything like that. And, it was just a moment that showed his love for this woman Laurie. And, she's very emotional and very human. You can see that she is very interested in him. I think you can see that he's drawn to her. But, the thing that I think is more interesting is that you really see him's pain and that his sadness as he leaves her. It's just a moment that shows that he's left the woman that he loves, that he loves this world, that he loves this country. He left her that first time because she was married. But, he didn't know if he would ever be able to meet her again. It was very important to him that he take care of his old lady, because it meant so much to him that he would be able to see her again. That is why he stayed for so long. And, he does love her. And, you can see that he cares about her. But, his love for her comes from deep inside. That is what I think is more interesting. Because I think that Laurie, in a lot of ways, is very similar to my grandmother. I mean, my grandmother had a very strong father who taught her how to be independent. And, he taught her the values that made her a strong woman

I will be honest, I watched this movie just because the tagline and the poster looked interesting and I had a lot of time on my hands, but still I ended up loving the movie. I loved it so much, I can't think of anything that could be done to ruin it. The characters, the plot, the music, the acting and the direction were all perfect. They seemed very natural and all I wanted to do was watch this movie again and again. I feel so lucky to have watched this movie and hope I never have to waste any of my precious time watching it, even if I do watch it. It will never be the same. If you are planning to watch this movie, don't expect anything like the big budget, blockbuster, Hollywood blockbuster. It's not about those movies, it's about the people behind it. This is the first movie that I have ever liked from such a high level of actors and actresses. It made me feel warm inside. I think it's my favorite movie that I've seen this year, and I think everyone will feel the same. Go watch this movie and you will not be disappointed.

This movie is a must-see for those who are a fan of films that will make you think. The story is set in a world where there is no tolerance for human prejudice or prejudice based on race, and a war between a few rich people and an angry, disenfranchised minority. Diane, played by Viola Davis, is a white-collar worker who gets fed up with the injustice and makes a choice to act out and do what she feels is right. When I saw this movie, I was in awe. This movie is so powerful because it is a movie that has a lot of layers that allow you to look deeper into the world and the characters and understand the characters. The characters are very interesting and are definitely the best part of the film. This movie has a very strong message that is very important in the current climate of race relations in the United States and throughout the world. I hope that this movie will help other people understand that all people are equal and should be treated equally. I have seen this movie more than once and will continue to watch it because it is one of the best movies I have ever seen and it has helped me in my life as well. I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.

I was not expecting much from this movie. I saw the trailer and thought it would be another mindless adventure that people on MTV would enjoy. I was right. This is one of the most original, witty and well made films I have ever seen. I am now going to watch it a few times a week to keep up with it. I'm not sure if it is really for me, but I am sure it is for some. Maybe it is just because I like watching films in black and white, but for me it was definitely worth it. I love everything about this film, and would like to know how people feel about it. I truly believe that this film will touch many people in different ways. As of right now, it is the only film I have ever seen that is being nominated for an Oscar. I think it is safe to say that this movie deserves it. I hope the Academy will honor it with the nominations it is getting. I'm not sure how much of it I have seen, but I can honestly say that it is one of the best films I have seen in a very long time. I'm sure that anyone who is into adventure and comedy will find this film enjoyable. This film is full of positive and funny moments, and definitely an example of a "feel good" film. I think that many people are being affected by this movie and that I would be the only one who does not enjoy it. It is also very sad to know that all of these people who are suffering from mental illness are also losing their lives to the media. It is heartbreaking to see that so many people are dying because of the media. I do not want to be a part of that.

Great movie. I was really shocked at the end. I had no idea this movie would be so good and would go on to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Some of the reactions I had were "OMG what is going on". The whole movie has a melancholic feeling. I never felt bored in this movie. At the end I felt more happy than sad. I'm so glad that the music score was great, I can't stop listening to it. I also liked the acting. The girl who played Diane (and the little girl who played her sister) were great. The rest of the cast were also great. This movie is very entertaining and never gets boring. The way the story unfolds is very artistic. I also think that this movie is very unique and that is a plus. I recommend this movie to anyone. It is a must see!

The film opens with an engaging 'party' sequence. There are some few other scenes as well. This is very informative for people who want to know more about the working class and how they struggle. There are some scenes where the subject of the meeting of the workers' union is touched upon, which show a real reaction from them to what the rich capitalists want. It also shows how the poorest and most downtrodden among them are brought into the fold by the way they can get money from the rich and show how workers are not simply spectators, but actors in the great drama of the whole capitalist system. The boss is a very revealing character, just a reflection of the class system as it is. The film is very well directed. The documentary approach gives a more human feel to the story, showing how all the workers' lives are linked up. The protagonist is Diane, a single mother of a girl. She is suffering a lot from the loss of her daughter. She is very devoted to her daughter and her husband is not doing enough to support her. In the film, she gets her way to save her daughter's life. She tells the doctor how she was out with her friends on a Saturday night when she got her daughter a polio. The doctor doesn't believe her, so she is referred to the daughter's family. The family are so devoted to their daughter, but have no money to pay for her treatment. Diane is the only one who understands what the situation is and even though she is clearly poor, she goes out to get money for her daughter. The doctor doesn't even see this as an option. The scene with Diane and the father is very moving. She's shown to be extremely patient with the father. He's a very good man, but he's also the employer of the daughter. It is Diane who finally becomes his confidante and goes back to him to get some money. The doctor shows Diane how little she's getting paid and how she is getting her daughter to the hospital. She finally stands up to the boss, the father and the daughter. She is well loved by everyone. The director's approach is very good, showing a character in the film who is both flawed and loyal to the people around her. The film makes you feel for the character and see what she's going through, especially if she has no money. This is the kind of film that makes you think about class and how people are treated by the system. A wonderful film. I recommend it for everyone.

I had a chance to see this film in person yesterday. I was impressed by the quality of the film and the performances. I thought it was an excellent portrayal of a complicated life and of a person who, as the film portrays, is simply "a human being who can't get out of the ordinary". A good job of giving the movie a realistic feel. It had great comedic value, as well. I feel that every part of the film had a certain personal resonance to it, which was more than I can say for any other movie I've seen in recent memory. I liked that the film was realistic in a sense that it was not a "monster movie", as we often hear people say. The fact that the character of Diane was the only human being, one of many who were hit by the plague, could only be described as believable. It was not a movie where the zombie would be the "hero" of the piece. It was a movie where the main character was the person who fought off the virus. The acting was great. I thought Susan Sarandon was superb as was Matthew Broderick. I think that the character of Cathy could have been better developed, but the acting was good enough. I think that everyone who had a chance to see this movie should see it. The acting, the writing, the setting, the scenery and the overall cinematography was all excellent. I had a wonderful time at the theatre yesterday and am looking forward to the next screening.

The scenes were so rich, we could see how each character played a part in it, and we can't forget the amazing chemistry between everyone in this wonderful film. The music was perfect, and I think it was the most realistic movie soundtrack I've heard, it really made me feel the emotions the characters were going through. It was the best thing I've ever seen in my life. I was completely swept up in the movie, I was laughing a lot, crying, being so grateful for the person I was to have this experience in my life. Every time I walk out of the theater I can't stop thinking about the movie, I just feel this deep connection with it, and it truly does feel like I'm living that moment right now, I just want to thank everyone for the amazing movie.
