I, too, didn't get the humour in it. I found it painfully realistic and bleak. Great performances and highly original though.

First half of movie is really slow. There was no reason, other then self-indulgence, that filmmakers couldn't have cut 30 mintues out of this section, giving them a 2 hour movie, rather then 2 and a half hours. 2nd half of movie First half of movie is really slow. There was no reason, other then self-indulgence, that filmmakers couldn't have cut 30 mintues out of this section, giving them a 2 hour movie, rather then 2 and a half hours. 2nd half of movie isn't as slow, but it feels more and more repetitious. I also think filmmakers made a bad call my making this all happen on the night of a terrible bus crash. The emergenacy rooms of big city hospitals tend to be very busy places on any night. If you throw on top of that the kaos that would result from a terrible bus crash, I don't think it's that shocking that someone might be "lost in the shuffle". This would have made a more powerful statement if it had happened on "just another night". I have read about the comedy and the humor that is in this movie, but it's not likely you'll see it. Perhaps the critics could point out the funny parts in their reviews. (and no, I don't need Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to laugh. In fact I don't think they're particurarily funny. Carrey and Sandler are both better actors then they are comedians). By the end of the end of the movie all I was really interested in was the lesbian relationship that is hinted at between the middle-age paramedic, and the really good looking nurse at one of the hospitals. But unfortunately, movie never gets back to this. Expand
