Wow, I'm really surprised Nate liked this. I hate this movie. Saw it in theaters and hated that it was a wannabe Rosemary's Baby down to Theron's ugly short Mia Farrow do.

G, there's no accounting for awesome taste (mine).

I keed, i keed. I do seriously enjoy this flick, though. It's basic enough to not test you, but intriguing enough to have you pulled in. Unless you're G, then you throw beverages at the screen.

I really disliked this one, and am also surprised you enjoyed it, Nate. Not that I've found that we have similar tastes in film, but rather everyone hates this one.

I have to say I was disappointed with this years ago when I saw it. It wasn't terrible as such, and Theron and Depp gave good performances, but it was fairly uninspiring in almost every other way, right up to the disappointingly predictable ending. As someone else said, it felt like a Rosemary's Baby wannabe.

I actually enjoyed most of this movie, but the payoff at the end was incredibly disappointing. I am tempted to try it again though, as watching a movie years down the road can definitely yeild different results. But overall I remember just hating the ending.

Interesting to hear that someone actually liked it - I haven't come across that reaction before for this film.
