Review: Well…I found the movie to be interesting. Of course, there is humor with Jim Carrey in it and emotional drama with Ewan by his side. Seeing Jim and Ewan step outside of the box was also interesting. I found the story to be well written and the cast to be pleasing. If I had to compare this film to “Brokeback Mountain,” Brokeback wins hands down. There isn’t much I can say about this film except that it is good enough to only see once. So, all in all, I will not see this film again.
