That is always true. You can't make a better movie than the book unless the book is poorly written, or is so short that nothing can really be explored. With that being said there were so many points in the movie that just made me smile and think, or truly laugh, or recoil in horror. The movie explores what it is to be human and what it all might mean. And it's not spoon fed to you. It plays out and you are left to actively soak it in. It's a great merging of fantasy and reality. If you are one of those kinds of (highly annoying) people that constantly turn to the person next to you and ask questions during a movie because you can't follow a plot...this movie is not for you. Don't get me wrong. I don't think it's a question of intelligence. It's more of "What do you want from entertainment?" If you want to switch off your brain and watch bouncing boobies and stuff blowing up, pick a different movie.
