I love it when that happens to me! Except when it happens to me in Texas it's a lot different then when it happens in Indiana. For instance the above scenario would happen in Indiana.

In Texas, you could probably still see the grass peaking through the snow when they'd cancel classes.

I think it could have benefited from a longer running time, to flesh it out. A lot of the plot felt.....contrived wouldn't be the right word, but too easily glossed over.

The though of a sequel wouldn't disappoint me.

Not that confusing. Actually it makes pretty good sense compared to some of that American stuff.

True...I never travel that much...so I wouldn't know much of anything

Sounds better than summer in Melbourne. 41C some days.

And you're admitting this on a public forum?

It wasn't funny enough to be a great comedy or thrilling enough to be a great action flick... tonally, it didn't work for me. Carell's a bumbling goof, yet he can still kill Russians pretty easily. The script wasn't too good, like you said, but once they started the mission, it got pretty enjoyable. Bill Murray's cameo didn't hurt.

If they got new screenwriters, which I doubt would happen, I'd be down with a sequel. It's open, but if it's meh, then why go for it?

But he'll always have his talent to fall back on.
