These comments are geared toward the featured comment. It seemed to me that the characters falsely presenting themselves were directed to be obvious they were pretending to be someone they weren't reaching back to that old-school style of acting and further exposing the clueless, trusting innocence of Thandie Newton's character. So it wasn't 'bad acting' as you termed it. Thandie was good and so were the other genuine characters. And it was obvious to me beforehand how the movie would end so I wasn't looking for any depth or suspense but for the way the director chose to unfold the plot. And it was cool. Something nice and easy to watch. I was entertained.
