I really liked it. I was surprised in truth. Reese Witherspoon blew me away, and Joaquin Phoenix I pretty much expected to be good. ANd yes, Jerry Lee Lewis was freakin' perfect. As for Vivian's portrayal - I don't think it was nearly that negative at all. Johnny was being a bit of a bastard at that time himself.

I haven't seen much else there year, so it's hard to compare. But yes, I thought it was very good!

I loved it. I thought Joaquin was mesmerizing, and not just because of his looks. I couldn't take my eyes off him, and I didn't find myself comparing him to Johnny. I thought about Johnny so much, but not in that way. Their chemistry was so real it was almost scary. Reese was so appealing and real as June too.

I thought they did an excellent job w/ the singing as well,you realize how ridiculous it would have been if they had lip synched.

Fine tribute to Johnny Cash and to their love story, a real love story that Hollywood actually did justice to.

My only complaint-I thought the Elvis was pretty lame

saw it yesterday, and while it's very Hollywood or Oscar winning cliche'...
it is I must say, a nice and dandy film, the performances are superb even Reeese's which was the most surprising. Phoenix like usual gives his all in a minimizing way that exceeds, you can tell it was them singing instead of an actual Cash backdrop and I'm still deciding whether this was a good or bad thing.

I wouldnt say this is the greatest film ever, but it is, nonetheless, a good film.

i saw it and agree it is a very good film. but johnny cash definitely came off as a real asshole. maybe he was

it would be interesting to see a film about the next 35 years of his life because this one ended just about when he got his act together. and i think it did portray his first marriage in a very thin way. if he had 4 kids with the woman i would think there was some love in that relationship, but it was not evident in this film.

I don't think he came across as an asshole, but more as someone who fell in love with someone who was not compatible with his lifestyle and therefore neither knew how to cope. Through in the addiction, and it's a recipe for disaster. June was a much better match for him, having been on the road her whole life and so on. And as far as getting his act together... well, it was the first of many times Johnny got his act together. I read a review somewhere that said that this was the first music biopic to justify a sequel.

the movie to me seemed like it was a lot longer and to make it in time they took out a lot of stuff...
seeing that there's long periods of time completely missing

Just got back from seeing it. They should just give Joaquin the Oscar now. Everyone in it was great. I loved seeing Shelby Lynne as his mom ... she's a great musician, nice to see her in a flick.

I just got back from seeing the movie and it was great! Joaquin and Reese were so awesome in it. They definitely deserve Oscars for this.
