How exactly would that be? :rolleyes: Is it horizontal instead of vertical? lol

Not in theaters (I very rarely see movies in theaters when they first come out), but once it hits DVD I'll probably see it. The story does sound like it would be something that I'd find interesting. I'm also interested in eventually seeing The Spirit.

The "curious" referred to in the title is that Benjamin Button ordered a ShamWow, and it hadn't arrived in 6-8 weeks. Very sad. To make up for the delay, Vince Offer personally delivered one to his door. He never opened it, since the crease in the packaging looked just like Mama Cass.

Aside from the technical aspects of this film (I've never seen such wonderfully sustained ageing make-up!), I thought the film was beautiful. It was a birth to death version of Forrest Gump, but without all the shenanigans. I found it to be much more profound than the aforementioned film as well. I wept. Actually, most of the cinema was weepy-eyed-- even the men!

I also loved the flick quite a bit, JP. The whole cast was really solid, especially the actress who played his mother as she stole nearly every scene she was in. The SFX were also very good; and the Forrest Gump reference works as it's the same screenwriter who wrote this flick and FG.

Great film though! :thumbsup:

Oh, yes. The actress who played Queenie played the part with such earthy goodness and well-placed doses of sass. I really enjoyed her.

The thing that made this movie so good for me is that the characters were all so wonderfully developed. Despite the grandness of the story, they managed to digest the essence of each character regardless of how minor their role might have been.
