I loved the play. The language was sharp, the drama satsfying, and the characters heightened. The direction of the movie was lame with Shanley successing briliantly on the stage and failing on the screen by telegraphing emotion with cheap I loved the play.

I'm all for a thought-provoking, intellectual movie but I also need to be entertained! Great acting performances by Adams and Streep but the wrong part for Hoffman's considerable acting talents!

Only comes in at a one as I happen to like Streep, so giving it a 0 would'nt be kind! Thank god, the theatre had comfortable seats otherwise I would have likened this to Penance after confession in the good old days of Catholic education.
