Blair, I'd like to speak with my wife.
Oh, Barney, it's 3:00 in the morning.
Put my wife on the phone.
She's not your wife and I'm not waking her.
All right. Well, then just ask her what she wants me to do with all these nude photos I have of her. Ah, come to think of it, you actually might want them, if only to see what Miriam looked like in her prime.

Amazing movie, really artistic, just don't watch the trailers they spoil the movie
Watched it in a early screening in Toronto, and I was shocked! I didn't expect such an amazing movie. Will remember it for the rest of my life.
Ignore the comments by Jewish ladies who were offended by the movie's contents. Those are just a small part of this masterpiece.
The roles are all played well. Paul Giamatti's role is nothing short of Oscar-winning in my opinion. The story is fun, but serious. The scenes are high-quality and well designed. I really didn't see anything missing.
Just one point, DO NOT watch the trailers. They completely spoil the movie. I think the main reason I loved the movie was that I did not know anything about it. But for those who have read the book, it should still be fun. It's a well-made movie, on top of a wonderful story.
