I'd echo most of what was said on the last couple of pages. The differences from the book were reasonable, although I would also have liked more Beorn. Scenes with Smaug were amazing, and the run down the river was a really fun ride. I took my teenage daughter, who wouldn't typically go to a movie like this. However, she really liked it. Well done Peter Jackson.
The guy that comes out of the pub is Peter Jackson, I think.
