Trivia

Jonah Hill would perform plays at a local comedy club that drew crowds. One night, the children of Dustin Hoffman stopped by and found Hill to be hilarious. Hoffman's kids told Hill, "You should meet our dad." Hill did not know that their father was the famous actor, and was initially weirded out, nervously replying, "You should meet my dad." The next week, Hill was invited to dinner with the Hoffman family, and was gob-smacked when he realized that he was in the home of the legendary actor. Dustin Hoffman was impressed with Hill, and asked David O. Russell if he could have a part in the film. Russell said yes. See more »

Albert Markovski: [Blurry shot of tree]
[Albert's thoughts are voiced aloud to us, but not the audience on camera]
Albert Markovski: Mother-fucking, cocksucker, mother-fucking, shit-fucker, what am I doing?

Wow. I left the theater at a loss for words. What the heck?

What I saw was one of the best movies this year. I don't even know where to begin in describing it. I laughed a lot at all the subtle humor and timing, and placement. The acting by the entire cast is spectacular.

This movie is not for all and probably only for a very small group of people because the elitist snobs will bash it for simplifying and "hollywood-izing" the philosophy too much, and the average joe will complain that its too weird and boring to understand.

The thing is with this movie, you will either get it or not. Simple as that. I definitely "got" it, and I'm grateful I did because it was an amazing trip.
