>"Don't be fooled by appearances. In Hawaii, some of the most powerful people look like bums and stuntmen." When this came out, I hated it. I thought it was slow and boring. 10 years later, I pop this in and expect to hate it, but nope. This movie is really good. It takes it's time but it's necessary. Also, Hawaii vibes are so chill and I love how everyone dresses.

Strange tonal inconsistencies throughout. Alexander Payne often tries for pathos that I don’t think he earns–his antipathy for his characters creates an emotional distance for me that leaves me feeling cold. I like Shailene Woodley in this role, but there were some pretty strange miscastings. Judy Greer is magnificent as always and should be in all the things.

I really like this movie...

I've watched it many times and am always entertained. I like the Hawaii locations, the young Woodley, Clooney's clumsy but morally accommodating character, and the confrontations with
life's inevitable surprises. All the characters gel, and the
story moves forward More

Sorry, but this movie was unwatchable for me. The premise is clever enough. The wife of a romantically unavailable husband has a fatal accident and he's forced to repair his relationship with his alienated daughters. It's good chick-flick material and no doubt, all the women scored it high and not o More
