I really wanted to like this movie. It was written and directed by the writer and director of Nine Lives, which was quite good. Plus, Naomi Watts starred in the movie, so it made it a must-see. But, neither one of us could get into it. The movie ran 2 hours, the first 90 minutes of which were pretty boring. The last 30 minutes were quite interesting–it’s where all of the stories told in the first 90 minutes intersected, but it was too little, too late for me. Unfortunately Brian fell asleep after the first 90 minutes, so he didn’t even get to see the good parts.
