I loved this movie! Anyone else seen it? What do you think?

"That's a negotiation, not an argument."

"How did you convince her to let you go?"
"It was an argument, not a negotiation."

Yeah, I saw it in the theater.

It was an odd experience. More people were talking during that movie all around the theater than I can remember happening before. I guess that it really stimulated instant conversation.

Aaron Eckhart is not tremendously well known, but is an interesting actor.

Also liked him in "In the Company of Men" (though that movie is not for everyone)

I really enjoyed this movie. I too saw it in the theater. Really thought Eckhart nailed his performance. It's been a while since I have seen it so I can't get into particulars as to why I enjoyed it but it was quite entertaining. Gonna have to netflix it.

I enjoyed it... after seeing some of the deleted scenes it made some of the other scenes such as the dream sequence make more sence- one of the main reasons i really liked it was that I am very much like him only i dont get paid as much -

I have reccomend it to alot of people

I remember that there was one point where he opens a pack of cigarettes, but he never got one out. Very interesting observation.

This movie definitely had a more subtle, adult sense of humor.

It definitely had the message that people need to be open minded. Also, that there's several ways to argue a point.

Did you not notice that not even once in the movie did you see someone smoking?

I actually thought about it whenever he got the nicotine patches put all over him. When he was told to quit, I go tto thinking "That shouldn't be too hard. I don't think he's lit one during the entire movie." I didn't really think about it after that though.

I have a free rental at Blockbuster and thought about picking it up but haven't since I've been a smoker since 1970. My wife quit about three years ago and she started smoking even longer ago and she bugs me to quit. That's my problem, if I watch it with her she's going to get even more into nagging me.

Besides the obvious, would a smoker who is not ready at this time enjoy this film? I know what it takes to quit, I did it in 1986 for six months and in 2003 for six months with my wife. The problem is I can't drink alcohol or coffee and not crave a cigarette.

This movie isnt really about quitting cigarettes so you should enjoy it just fine.


BTW

FYI everyone else-


in the deleted scenes they show a scene where he returns to work and every one is there waiting for him to come up the elevator. Right after he gets out of the Hospital For all thos patches on him... anyway .. they are all crowding around him and they all ask" So are you gonna Quit" and he asks.. "Whos Got a Smoke"... They then show him take one from the boss and take one puff and pass out... then going into one of those dream sequences.
