I won this on BluRay DVD from the auction site dirt cheap. Put in a bid didn't expecting to win and did. If you're a fan of thrillers, you can't miss this one! I don't think it did well in theaters, but pay no mind to that. Go rent this ASAP. It's an original idea, one that hasn't been done before to my knowledge.


Cheers,

Tim

I did see it in the theater and while it wasn't a bad movie by any stretch it is certainly not one I would tell people to run out and rent ASAP.

I like it. Kevin Cosner as the "Everyman"(Willy Loman) Box salesman was a little of a stretch to me, but other than that it was a fun Saturday evening with me, the wife, and a bottle of wine. :-)

I would recommend although I agree It's not a must see. 3 out of 4 stars :-)

The idea behind the movie, with the alter ego was very good. I thought Dane Cook who hasn't been in a lot movies was very good. I wasn't buying Demi Moores character though.

I can believe Demi Moore as a bad A, super rich, cougar cop more than Kevin Costner as an average joe, boring, mild mannered box dude. It's like making Sean Connery a Janitor, or Halle Barry a welfare mom. I don't buy it. But setting that aside it was a good movie.

And side note any movie with halle barry half naked is at least worth renting, even though it's probably a crappy movie.

Agreed, great movie. I saw it when it was a limited release and drove 1.5 hours out of my way to see it and don't regret it one bit.

The Darjeeling Soundtrack isn't half bad either.

I think the point of Kevin being that guy, is that he isn't. I don't want to give anything away, but he says to Dane Cook, "invest in things that people can't do without. Like cemetery's and water."

I'll check out Darjeeling!


Cheers,
