I think the negative reviews read too much into it (other than being dismayed at the long running time; I agree it was too long) - it's not about shoes. It's not about cosmopolitans. It's not even about sex. It's about wanting to spend some more time with the characters we love, to see what happens to them next.

But uh ... yeah! I would take a stab and say most people who see the movie of their own volition (i.e., not being cajoled by a girlfriend into seeing it) will like it, because they are already fans of the show.
That's cool.

I can only hope the eventual Arrested Development movie is as well-received among its fans.

Oh, me too! What's the timeframe for that - have they even mentioned when it might come out?

If not, I won't start believing it's actually happening until there's reports of scripts and filming and release dates.

That's what happened with the second X-Files movie. It's like "Yeah yeah yeah, whatever" and then ".... there's a script? .... they're FILMING???? .... JULY 25th!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I watch Indiana Jones last night and was completely dissapointed. True, I never watched the first three but I still expected somewhat of a decent experience. I was bored half-way through it and completely turned off once I realized that, yes, they were using the ubiquitous "aliens took it" cop out.

I've just read inklings of getting the whole gang back together. Expect something in '09, probably in the Spring if it comes together real quick.

ok i finally got into the theater(don't ask) to see this flick, it was okay. the ending is what i couldn't get. it was like the movie suddenly turned into an episode of X-files.

It's not that the ending's implausible, but seeing the CG alien staredown Comrade Cate was a little much. You never saw God show up and blow up Nazis like "God" in Star Trek V. Why? Because Star Trek V sucks.

Indy 4 is punishment, enough
