I found this film to be immensely enjoyable and entertaining until the last 20 minutes or so. At that point, it ran out of gas. The ending reminded me of awards show speeches in which the recipient is urged to "wrap it up" as the music swells behind him/her. The sudden pairing off of all the characters feels forced and lacks credibility. I felt quite let down.
