Whatever one wants of a movie is very personal I quess, as for me, I want to be transported away, and this movie did that. I like to see beautiful people and beautiful scenery, and this movie suplied May be that is lack of discernment and escapism on my side, but I think it is OK for the movie industry to keep people like myself in mind too.
