Gets my vote for picture of the year

I know I'm a little late to the party on this one, but how can you not love a movie that makes you laugh and cry, go weak in the knees and shake your fist in rage all in the course of a couple of hours? We rented this at our favorite redbox location, and it was SO worth the dollar we spent to watch it. We even kept it an extra night so I could re-watch some scenes; the dialogue is witty and quick, and the English and Australian accents are a delight. Plus, in addition to the cinematography, the pure entertainment value and two leads that clearly have big screen appeal, you get the bonus of the historical element. Two thumbs WAY up.

are you kidding me? I haven't seen it because everyone I know that has didn't enjoy it...not that they didn't like it they just kept thinking when is this ever going to end. I guess maybe I'll have to watch it before I can have say anything.

I OWN this and still haven't made the time to sit and watch it.
I'm even more excited to see it now. Thanks for the reminder :)

Joy, not even kidding. I LOVED this movie. I don't recommend trying to watch it with any sort of distraction, though.
Jo Jo... quit laughing! This is serious business.

I'm so happy you loved it! I saw it right when it came out after seeing some not-so-great reviews and adored it. Then I gushed to everyone I know about how much I loved it and then worried that I was setting their expectations to high.

I think I'll have to set aside some time to watch it again!
