    Ok, I can't really review it, because we only got about halfway through it and couldn't stand to watch it anymore. I just could NOT get my brain around the major plot twist. I thought the casting was just terrible.

    I understand the book was very good, but wow, Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman just blew it for me. :ack:

    Did anyone watch it all the way through? Did I give up too soon?

    IMO, you gave in too soon, I did the same, 4 times, before I finished it one night, glad I did, the ending sections are good, well acted, again...IMO....

    Then again, I am an old fart that would love to have Nicole as my , uh...special girl-friend, that late in life.

    see, that's what I was afraid of...I just couldn't reconcile Anthony Hopkins with the role he as supposed to be playing...

    It wasn't Anthony Hopkins best role. Very hard to believe.

    I've seen the entire movie. This should be an interesting thread.
