Visitor Comments

Stephanie Dippenaar: This movie has a wonderful mixture of acting styles and talent, which makes this one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Both Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins will surely receive an Oscar nomination. The end was a pleasant surprise!

Robert Haynes: The term ''editing'' does not apply to this 3 hour pose-fest starring Brad Pout. The films only saving grace is its original storyline. zzzz ...wake me when it's over was my response while watching.

Oliver Lopes: Soppy love story - not what the trailer predicted.

Lynette Anthony: Excellent. I love romantic movies and this was one of the best.

Tania Pretorius: Great movie !!!!

Isma Manitsa: Lovely!

Claudette von Holdt: It's excellent.

Nyvisha Walker: Brad Pitt is such a babe!

Jason Lobel: Nice, will tug your emotions in all directions - at times very funny and very sad. Generally I liked it although the final scene was a bit corny.

Courtney Costas: Absolutely incredible.

Eric Shao: Very good.

Marianne Lombard: Stunning movie!

Monique Miller: Excellent.

Melissa Boltman: Brilliant.

Karin Frank: Best movie ever!!
