But it's clean, and its cold. I wish I had my money back. After Gremlins and The Goonies, what other 80s films need a remake?
My main objection as a Christian, was the nudity and sexuality.
You walk out of the theatre wondering why you just wasted 3 hours of your life. Kidman is no Leigh, and I felt like those guys who ate the rotten deer. Too controlled, too placed I was so involved in the characters and was so let down at the end. Oh and someone please teach Minghella how to make a film which lasts less than 2 hours.
