Stunned by consensus
5 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just can't believe the poor rap this movie gets. I watch a great deal of movies and this is in my top 5 favorite movies. This is a movie that I can always watch. It's a smart stony movie that always delivers. There is a ton of very subtle, incredibly funny humor. Jack Black's role is very funny, and this is my favorite of all of Luke Wilson's movies. In my opinion this movie may take a few viewings to fully appreciate. The movie does sometimes have an odd feel to it due to it's being adapted from a novel. The movie skips and omits a lot from the novel, as movies do, and they fail to tie in essential concepts from the book that would make the movie's plot a little more cohesive. If you have not seen this movie, watch it. If you have, watch it again.
