Drinking game: Raise your glass every time someone makes a snide remark about Merica. Ha. The film is not bad but Colin Firth as a sad and frustrated Hemingway-like 'bad boy' going through a midlife criris is a bit too silly for my taste with his little sunglasses and all which make him look like he's going for a Laurence Fishburne in Matrix sort of look. Nah. I do like Colin nevertheless.
Sometimes in life you're watching the right movie at the right time. Tonight I watched this film at the right time and enjoyed the heck out of it. Biel was the most enjoyable she's ever been, Barnes was a dream-boat, Kristin Scott Thomas was delightfully sny, and Firth was gosh darn cool. Good script, and the costumes were great too. Loved it.
