  • I found the plot a little slow...
    the shirt confused me! I'll leave it at that...

    over all, not a bad movie though.

  • I thought Jake Gillinhals (sp) character was a sexual predator. It wasn't a great movie but it wasn't horrible either. I wouldn't watch it again. It was one of those movies that you have to watch just to say you did and to know what everyone is talking about.
    Take it or leave it?..........IMO....Leave it!

  • Ya....I watched it at the movies with my mother.....What was I thinking???? She didn't want to go alone. I know my husband would have walked out but he refuses to see it. I'd def. wait on this one if I were you.

  • We haven't seen it, but my husband's best friend actually recommended we see it. He is kinda squimish and he didn't seem bothered by it.

  • I LOVE it!

    But my boyfriend is very comfortable with his sexuality and so am I. We love our gay people, but we were actually able to see past the whole "OMG GAY COWBOY LOLLLZZZ SEX" thing. We're also both huge Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal fans, so that helped a lil bit. Heath was friggin ROBBED for the Oscar that year >:( I think the story is very heartfelt and heartbreaking. It very well could've been based on a true story. If you like pretty scenery and a good, sad story, you'll like it =]

  • I loved the story and thought the movie was great. My DH has never seen it and absolutely refuses to watch it. Honestly I think it will make your DH uncomfortable, it is pretty graphic. Much more then I expected it to be.
