Average User Score: 8.4May 12, 2014It may not be perfect (very few films, if any, are) but this is definitely one of the best films that I've seen in a while and definitely my favorite of the year so far. It has a great story, good music, beautiful cinematography, & incredible acting from the two leads, Alia Bhatt's acting is particularly phenomenal. Please don't miss this resonating and emotionally impact full film.
**I know it's still early in the year but I think that this film has awards potential.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Jun 22, 2012I largely agree with the tomatometer's general consensus for this film. It could have been so much more with better editing, intimate and sweeping cinematography, an expanded and more detailed story exposition and well rounded and layered character development. More of an intricate and emotional score, wouldn't have to be a long score and definitely not a bombastic one mind you (a more subtle one could be more powerful on emotions), would have helped as well. Having said that, I still appreciated this movie's themes and some parts of the movie itself, namely the climax and Louie Leonardo's acting and especially his acting potential. Although the climax is not perfect (actually rushed in execution), it is still a quite a powerful one.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.9May 31, 2012This movie needed some work. It should have spent more time with Borris the Animal, gone more in depth with the '69 culture, Jay & his early love interest's relationship and a little bit more with Will and Josh's relationship. More work on the jokes that took place during the early part of the film as well (they weren't bad, just not exactly LOL material.) This film should have been a little bit longer. Having said that, I still found this film rather enjoyable and like most people, I really enjoyed Josh Brolin's performance.This film is probably the third best blockbuster of 2012 so far. :-) P.S. the 3D wasn't bad but it didn't add to the film either. My advice would be: save some money by seeing this movie in 2D.… Expand
