    As far as a Coen movie pretty much not one of my favorites...it is funny and entertaining...but never develops any real depth. the story line is rather disjointed.

    And had I know the tickets for two were 18 bucks...i would have waited for it on HBO or DVD. I would not spend 18 bucks to see it. Not worth it.

    It was ok, there were a few funny parts, brad pitt was the funniest character in that movie.

    I enjoyed it. It's no classic, but it was one of the funnier "espionage" movies I've seen :D

    the true question...was it worth 18 bucks for 2 people?

    *shurg* yeah, sure; I've gotten used to a movie for two eating a 20. Just don't stop at the concession stand (not that I'm suggesting bringing in outside food or drink (especially not in a flask), which is something I'm certainly not saying I do on a regular basis).

    I liked his one. It was one of those movies that wasn't funny immediately, but you find yourself laughing about later.
