It never ceases to amaze me how truly humorous and emotionally inspiring movies like this get trashed by numbheads and these same numbheads fall all over those paper cutout movies which meet their "winner" criteria. Those movies may be winners, but this movie is a winner too. Other movies can be winners. Not just the winners.
This movie deserves a 6.5 rating not the current 5.9. At IMDb, a 7.0 is really really good, an 8.0 is a super great magnificent blockbuster. Higher is almost unheard of. But they do exist. Higher rated movies are almost always a sure bet to be a winner. But any movie in the 6's is usually worth watching, while any movie in the 5's is probably pretty okay. Even some movies in the 4's can be okay, so the movies in the 5's are even more okay. But the movies in the 6's are really really good, which would mean the movies in the 7s would have to be changed to exceptionally good, not just really really good.
On the other hand, IMDb ratings can often be totally the result of a bunch of numbheads. We should invite them to dinner.
This is a good movie.
