03.04.15Netflix Huh. I really expected to like this, but it left me pretty flat. It was slow and seemed to meander a bit and I never felt like Carell played past his nose. Tatum and Ruffalo were good but again the story felt too loose and meandering to me. I also didn't full understand when the rift between Tatum and Carell formed. I guess that rift was supposed to motivate the end but it didn't for me so the end seemed exceedingly random and distanced. I never really felt like I understood any of the characters, although I applaud the wrestling training that both actors underwent and Carell's physical comedy made me chuckle (like when he jogs around the gym).

Disappointment considering all the good stuff everybody had to say about it, but then again I had similar feelings about Capote (although I think I ended up liking that one more than this). And whatever that type of score is... the music in this seemed like every other Best Picture nominee ever. I feel like everything about this was trying pretty hard to win awards. It left me kind of bored.
