Somewhat entertaining and worth watching. Over-rated by critics.

I thought this was an amazing movie. Anyone who rated it poorly did not understand the concept of the movie. It was not about the economy, and it wasn't supposed to be. It was about the lonely life of Ryan (played by George Clooney) He did an amazing job at his character, lost in a world where everything is supposed to be perfect. Everyone around him told him he had to be married, have kids, live
I am disappointed that I gave this movie further consideration because the academy and other reviews were so praising. I thought the plot idea seemed weak from the beginning and that is exactly what it turned out to be. Although it is very relevant about the state of the economy that does not make it in any way insightful. To make Clooney's character put a positive spin and be encouraging

Wonderful movie .... thoughtfully creative, yet lonely. Really shows how impersonal this technological age can be, tethered to lap tops, cell phones and PDA's, but at the same time, truly looking for a human connection.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Okay, yes, it's not a feel good, laugh till it hurts, romantic comedy or anything like *********** richly layered with heavy hearted emotion and character development through ******* entirity. Beautifully directed, skillfully crafted, and any thinking person would understand the quiet drama in the film.
