Plus, the fact that it stars a Hollywood gem... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Personally, I wonder why it took Alexander Payne 7 years to finally come up with a new director effort. Anyway, it was definitely worth the wait, that’s for sure. Indeed, I thought it was a very good drama with a perfect pace (probably the best directing by Payne so far) , some more than solid performances and... read more

" George Clooney's performance is the strongest aspect of this film. It's sometimes funny, moving and heartfelt. The soundtrack is amusing, many of the locations are gorgeous, and the story is genuinely interesting. It's a film that has Oscar all over it. Not that I think it deserved to win anything. For while it is enjoyable, it is still highly overrated. Because it does still feel similar to other films, and you can't change that by simply changing the location to Hawaii. Then there is the f"
