Long, boring, bummer. It's perhaps the worst thing Jack Nicholson has ever done. This movie is a "bait and switch" with no more than a few minutes of total screen time for Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave and Sam Shepard who all just have Long, boring, bummer. It's perhaps the worst thing Jack Nicholson has ever done. This movie is a "bait and switch" with no more than a few minutes of total screen time for Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave and Sam Shepard who all just have small cameos. Sean Penn as a director must have been smoking marijuana the whole time. It's just a slow moving low down drag with a pointless ending. Expand

Too slowly paced; disturbing on any number of levels; an endless cycle of disassociated "suspense-building" scenes which, like clockwork, culminate either in exactly what you expect or exactly what you don't expect. At the end Too slowly paced; disturbing on any number of levels; an endless cycle of disassociated "suspense-building" scenes which, like clockwork, culminate either in exactly what you expect or exactly what you don't expect. At the end you're just guessing "heads or tails" as to what will happen, with the outcomes incapable of being predicted but instead left merely to the whim of the directing/writing crew. Good acting, sure, but that's about it. Expand
