i kinda like and kinda hate how D.o.R. has become the litebeer of Scorsese (storytelling, sex/violence, and music manipulation-wise). Back in the Flirting w Disaster to Three Kings days his own voice seemed stronger. maybe that's just me. And Beware, this flick's got enough Adams' side boob to last a decade.
I'm generally a fan of David O Russell but this film just couln't compel me past the first 45 minutes. A great cast, style and all that jazz but ultimately just a skeleton of a great story without any pull. It's hard to pinpoint what exactly was missing but it's sum was ultimately so much less than it's parts.
