It had a good soundtrack, I'll give it that.

I was just sooooo surprised when the workaholic lawyer lady learned something about herself and about life! That never happens in movies! And oh, we all can learn something about our lives from the mentally retarded!

Other than that bit, I don't remember why I disliked it so strongly. I just did. It grated on me.

And also? This is going to sound like I'm criticizing those of you quoting Penn's lines from the movie, but I promise you I mean no offense. BUT. It makes it sound like people like the movie because it's funny to quote mentally retarded people. Because they talk funny.

(That isn't coming out the way I mean it, but I can't really think of how to say what I want to say. Maybe it's meant more in praise of Sean Penn's performance.)

Again, nothing personal. The movie just really rubbed me the wrong way. ... as you can see.

None taken, but I thought it was a good movie regardless of that scene. The Pfieffer character arc was predictable, but it was still enjoyable, at least for me.

Oh, and Dakota Fanning.

Yeah, you can't deny Dakota Fanning's talent.

I love Sean Penn. He's my hero. He went to Katrina to rescue people when Bush left them to die.

And he's a great actor.

"The Assassination of Richard Nixon"!

Not being sarcastic at all. I usually never am because I'm compulsive about trying to be clear. I loved that film and his performance in it. It spoke to me; I really get that character and identify with him. Except the innocent peolpe he injured (which I don't agree with), I kinda feel like that guy. Then again, I also identify with Nixon and his shyness, insecurities, and bitterness, so what does that say about me?!

I think Sean Penn is great. Who I think is overrated is Johnny Depp. His movies suck and his roles are superficial, except, like, Donnie Brasco which was okay. Also Robin Wright Penn is sexy in a sophisticated kinda way. He gets extra points for that choice.

Really? Hell I knew girls who had abortions in high school in the late 70's. Maybe it missed the 80's.... And there was plenty of drug use then too. By nice kids in nice neighbourhoods.

I do have to admit to being very excited for the new Sean Penn-directed "Into the Wild," which comes out in September. I absolutely LOVED the book and can't wait to see how it translated to the big screen.

Plus Emile Hirsch is a completely underrated young actor.

^^ and ^ Both the movie and the lad look incredible.

And Sean Penn is what you get when you begin to believe your own press clippings.

I'm also quite excited about the Into The Wild, I had to read the book couple years back for class and really enjoyed it. So when I read that Sean Penn was making it into film I was quite enthused, also I really like Emile Hirsch ...at least what I've seen him in ..the Emperor's Club (I love Kevin Kline) and even that somewhat lame skateboarding movie (Heath Ledger was also amazing in it).



off topic, but I'm very anxious for the Dylan film I'm Not There, I remember reading about it in Rolling Stone back in 04 and have been waiting ever since. Photos finally emerged, so that's a step forward!

It still cracks me up that Emile Hirsch and Paul Dano were both in The Girl Next Door, now they're doing these supercereal dramatic roles.

I'll still love them in that movie though, a forgotten classic.
