| Not as good as I had hoped
This movie isn't bad, not at all. But, it's not GREAT either. It does it's thing very easily and cordially throughout with no really unexpected twists and some pretty blah acting. Not bad, just blah.

I liked Ellen Page better in Juno, probably because it was better written. THC stole all the scenes he was in, and even that should tell you something.

The story was okay, I just found myself bored throughout.... but then again.... I just watched Street Kings so......

Go see this if you don't want to have to think too hard, it hands everything to you on a nice serving platter.... and it's already cut into bite size pieces for you. Enjoy.
