I really loved this movie. I bought it on DVD without seeing it first and was so pleasantly surprised. The acting and chemistry were great with Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansen, and I experienced such a range of emotions. It was funny and sad and touching and just a wonderful experience. I loved the lip my stockings scene, too funny.

Completely agree. Great movie. Your sentence: "It was funny and sad and touching and just a wonderful experience." exactly describes the movie for me and my experience watching it.

Of course the price of the DVD is worth the opening shot IMO :twisted: And Kevin SHields (of My Bloody Valentine fame) handled most of the soundtrack, you can not go wrong there.

I am surprised at how many people that I know who have not liked the movie. So far of the four people I lent it to only 1 sorta liked it. I think maybe it is a victim of overhype.

Glad to see that there are so many people who love this movie. I did too and it was my favorite movie of last year (2003).

:D

Yes, it had too much hype. It's hard to live up to it.

I wish that there was a optional translation of the Japanese language spoken in the film available on the DVD. The translated scenes I've read were really funny. But they didn't seem as funny when I didn't know what was being said.
