    Is this flick worth buying, or just a rental? I love JM, but the plot looks like an acid trip.

    It is one of the most vapid, idiotic, stupid movies I have ever seen.

    It is a good, dark comedy that needs to be watched multiple times.

    It's a good flick. I wouldn't buy it, but it's definitely worth the rental.

    I love JM, but I couldn't finish it.

    Bad movie.

    I bought it. It is a great film....but having seen it several times I would not buy it again.

    I watched it years ago thinking I would hate it, and I was surprisingly entertained. It was very trippy though.

    That is how I felt as well. I thought it was going to be dumb, but found it very entertaining.....yet I can't for the life of me explain what was entertaining about it. :rofl:

    I saw it several years ago. I didn't quite "get it".

    I agree. But only watched it once and probably won't watch it again.

    I believe Charlize Theron was who said "You know how there are about a dozen scripts in Hollywood? Well with Being John Malkovich there are now 13"

    See it if only for the "holy cow this is different" movie experience.
