My mamma always said that if you have nothing good to say then don't say anything at all...

On the one hand I agree with paaron46... then again... ;-)

I just thought this was three hours of my life I won't get back (Well, that's how long it felt). I've rarely seen a film that felt so pointless. The script was mediocre, the acting was just serviceable (certainly not oscar worthy, as some suggested). Clooney just did lots of looking at the camera with a bland expression from the middle of the frame (often while running). The soundtrack was really bloody annoying and constantly distracted from the film (such as it was). Yeah, sure, it's another 'characters dealing with awkward emotional situations' drama. Yippy. It's not like it had any real message or thought with that.

I enjoy a good dramatic film from time to time, but it needs to have a point and some interesting characters.

This was a fantastic movie, and the way emotions were "acted" was just amazing, the amount of times i wanted to shout a Clooney to "hug her" or do something that any father/parent would do was a testament to the subtle way of Clooney showing just how bad a father he was/is/played

Cool The message is "Eutanasia" ....

The movie is boring, the music is terrible, but I agree with the "dead mother": No one deserves to live plugged on machines". This is the great message of the movie! How we say eutanasia in English?
