(jp) wrote: I know this is uncharacteristically shallow of me, but I was rooting for Team Green to win, or as I like to think of them, "Team Boobs." The reason why is self-explanatory. Anyways, WTF was with the scoring system? It's a reality show, not a freakin' video game. And what's the explanation for the sawed-off shotgun with unlimited ammo that never needs reloading?
(it) wrote: It's amazing Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba had successful careers after taking parts like this, so demeaning to both of them, either waiting around for Affleck to beat, screw or kill them. It was unwatchable. Affleck wasn't good enough to distract from the dismal context.

(gb) wrote: Total vanvittig og forrygende film! S staerk og grotesk som aldrig set foer. Nicolas Bro spiller saa fantastisk graenseoverskridende, at man bare sidder tilbage maabende. Det er saa vild en film om hvor langt man kan komme ud i kaerlighed, depression og sindssyge saa ord ikke kan beskrive det... Den skal bare ses!! WOW!

(jp) wrote: A surprisingly weak performance from McCarthy, a typical one from Stone, poor directing, and even Conti's score doesn't really fit.
(mx) wrote: Wonderfully acted by Tom Hanks and incredibly original, Big only starts to lose its childish charm and likability when the lead character does.
(br) wrote: The very best worst horror film of all time bar none. I've seen more turkeys than Bernard Mathews and this one clucks louder than any. Look out for: Burt Young (Sly Stallone's brother-in-law in the Rocky films) appearing here in his first screen role (spelled "roll" on the poster. He plays 'Gimpy'. You can??t miss him); The 'Drunken Sailor' (can YOU figure out if he is acting or not? I suspect he is a literally drunken sailor who has been press ganged into appearing); The bicycle tyre inner tube 'entrails' (pulled from the victim under the pier - surely your intestines should be attached to something, shouldn't they?); the music (oh god, the music)... Yes. A 'must see movie'. So funny you will soil yourself, guaranteed. Although sadly that line does not appear on the packaging. Yes. A 'must see movie' so sadly under rated.

(us) wrote: Eh, should have been better...It's OK. If I didn't know the real-life story, I'd still be a little disappointed in the overall viewing experience. The fact I can remember how huge a news story this was back in the day, I surely would have liked to have seen them tell it much better than they did in this movie.Watch it, but don't expect too much...
(ag) wrote: The final fim in the Middle-Earth Saga gives a satisfying conclusion. The action and visuals are great, and there are a few emotional scenes thrown in for good measure. There are a few characters development moments that don't fit and I understood why the theatrical cut of these fils should have been two rather than three.
