I saw this not too long ago as well. I thought the movie was OK, but I agree Alan Arkin was amazing.

Are we talking new release? If so, I have no idea.

If not, Mrs. Big Dog and I just watched the 4 Harry Potter movies over the last couple days.

I saw the Last King of Scotland 2 weeks ago. It was good but I didnt really care for the guy who played the Scottish doctor. It was very violent too and some of the plot was a bit clicheed.

We watched 'Mozart and the Whale' on DVD a couple of days ago. This is a 'based on a true story' love story featuring Josh Hartnett as a young man with Asperger's Syndrome as he tries to build a relationship with a woman who is also on the Autism Spectrum. Very interesting and compelling. Certainly worth watching.

Oh, yeah... we also watched 'Saw' and 'Saw II'. They were pretty good, if you like that kind of thing... and we kinda do.

HH bought The Guardian and we watched it over the weekend. It was better than I expected, especially since I'm not so keen on Kostner anymore. Young lad Ashton had a very good performance, and some of the parts were played by actual Coast Guard rescue swimmers.

Little Miss Sunshine was not as good as I was hoping, although I agree about Alan Arkin's role.

Still wanna see
Flags of Our Fathers (Uncle Bob/Katie & Buck, the book is great!)
The Queen
Notes on a Scandal (don't care if it's bad, I love Judi Dench)
Children of Men
Music & Lyrics (with Hugh GRant and Drew Barrymore) - saw trailers for this and it looks like a fun rom-com
Because I Said So (with Diane Keaton and the guy who plays the dad on Seventh Heaven) - same reason

I watched Little Miss Sunshine and found it disgusting! A little girl saying that her grandfather told her how to dance to a strip song?!?!?!?!? Her grandfather is on coke?! OR meth?! And then she does some kind of strip tease with out taking off all her clothes? This is DISGUSTING! This movie should be banned from any TV or movie theatre.

I thought that movie was hysterical! It was clearly the epitome of a dysfunctional family, yet....they had affection (ha) for each other and were clearly trying to stick it out. Each one of them was as naive as 5 year olds, yet had positions of authority.
And that group dance at the end??!!...it was a family that stuck together, right to the eventual sentencing!
I'm so sorry you didn't see it for the satire it was.

I found it a very hard movie to watch because of the content.
BE AWARE that it is an R rated movie.
It has been described as an "adult fairy tale horror film" - quite the combo.
It is increadibly well done but disturbing.
Just be prepared to see something different than you have probably ever seen before.

We watched Da Vinci Code last night. I was surprised that it was so close to the book. All in all, a good movie. I feel like the casting could have been better. Angels and Demons should be interesting.
