    THIS WAS THE WORST EXCUSE FOR A MOVIE EVER! I HATED IT I HATED IT. I saw it with my fly biatchress and I thought it was the biggest waste of time of my life. I just wanted to get the hell out of here.

    This would have been a GREAT documentary. Unfortunately Ang Lee used screen splitting in his attempt to keep it from dragging and failed. The story line and characters did not draw you into caring about them. One bright spot was Imelda Stauton's acting - great and funny.
