Good Movie
13 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie very much. The dialog was very well written. I suppose that you cannot please everyone in the business of writing screenplays. I do not think that most people realize how difficult it really is to write a screenplay or concoct a simple tale for the sake of entertainment. I suppose it is easy for most critics to bash a film without ever having written a screenplay. I believe that if viewers would stop taking themselves so seriously when watching a movie, we could all enjoy reasonable programming instead of watching the virtual garbage we are watching today. This movie was enjoyable to watch and that's it. I have even bought the VHS version myself. Viewers need to appreciate the art of movie making and stop complaining until THEY have sat at a typewriter and put together a 120 page script and be able to cast top people to entertain ingrates from one hour and thirty-five minutes of your time.
