The worst part of this movie is how talented the cast is in everythingelse they've appeared in. In this, they are smug, self righteous andannoying. The main problem is, that they are trying to act like "normalpeople" and some of the most talented actors, just can't pull that off.Philip Seymour Hoffman can definitely pull it off. Paul Giamatti canpull it off. These actors appear uncomfortable and really boring tryingto be "regular" people in unusual situations, but even the situationsare not that usual. The minority of people watching movies are actorsor authors or whatever, so these situations don't ring true and as themost annoying of all, Maggie Gyllenhall comes across as giggly andstupid, something that is sad to watch, given how talented she is.Trust THIS woman, do NOT watch this movie!!!
