"The filmmakers do not condone bullfighting, but respect its long tradition in the Mexican culture. It was extremely important to the producers that no bulls were harmed because of the production of 'The Matador'. In no way did the producers of this film create, arrange or organize any of the bullfights seen within this movie. Sequences staged by the producers employed fake and computer-generated bulls exclusively. Absolutely no animals were harmed by the production of this movie." See more »
What little corner of the human mind did the marketers tickle on this one? Because by God . . . to the tune of Beethoven's 5th . . . this movie stank! Maybe it's some sort of pseudo sophistication people feel by laughing at (with?) Brosnan's character's vile . . . humor? This movie was stupid, pointless, crap. Can we separate out the Canadian vote, so I can see if there is yet another reason to move to Canada? I'm there if the average Canadian vote for this stinker was under 3.
What was redeeming about the story? Didn't people guess it? I didn't care anyway. How about Hope Davis? What made her character appealing at all? And the Greg Kinnear Permo-Look-o-Wonder -- started to look pretty stupid after awhile -- makes me want to wait a few movies before I see him again. And I like Greg Kinnear.
It's been an awful year for movies this year. Maybe dragging out one with some usual faves, and putting a good marketing spin on it, made people give it a high rating. I think IMDb is becoming less and less reliable.
