A good movie

Since I have a weak spot for Greg Kinnear, I was quite eager to check this flick. On top of that, it was a rather intriguing story. Eventually, even though I did enjoy it, I thought the whole thing was terribly sad and frustrating.

“Since I have a weak spot for Greg Kinnear, I was quite eager to check this flick. On top of that, it was a rather intriguing story.

I mean, about less than 18 months ago, after going through a terrible time with my employer, they decided to fire me because I was supposedly incompent. Maybe he wasn't the best employee ever but I was certainly not incompent so I was pretty pissed off but they also offered me 6 months of salary and guess what I did? I swallowed my pride and took the money. I mean, I have noticed that some viewers considered Robert Kearns as a hero, some kind of David fighting Goliath. Sure, at the end, he did win (which really surprised me, I thought he would loose), got m” read more

"Greg Kinnear is one of the most underrated actors in the past decade. I love the hell out of this guy. I think this may be his best role yet. A great American story! "

"It's a movie about the man who invented the interval timer to the windshield wiper. Not only does that rhyme, but it also makes a boring film. I think we still have some inventions that earn their own movies instead of the guy who invented this."
