Adaptation

LOL...I don't think there has been a film that has cracked me up this much in years. The last part of the film had me proverbially on the floor.

Has anyone else seen this gem?

Nic Cage and Meryl Streep, if I remember from the commercials correctly, is it not?

I think it's nominated for some Golden Globes as well.

I haven't seen it yet. I need someone to see it WITH. No one I know seems to want to go.
maybe if I tell them how good it is....

I saw this in New Year's Eve day, and I didn't think it was as great as everyone said. The first part was good, but the last part was played too straight and too serious, which made the whole thing rather precious. I got the joke, but....I didn't think the punchline was well-conceived.

That was what made it so funny for me, especially if you take in much of the previous dialogue in the film.

*trying hard not to make film spoilers

I plan to see it this week. Please print SPOILER ------------------if you plan on giving any of it away.


I have a friend who votes for film awards, she wants me to explain it to her.

This film will probably save Nic Cage's career...

I think its brilliant - any film that challenges/plays with/exploits an audience's expectations is a winner for me, and this film does it better than most.
