    Cheney finishes reading My Pet Goat to Bush while Bush is flying somewhere over Missouri on Air Force One.

    I hate the fact that Stone had the balls to call it World Trade Center, thus giving it the weight of being the definitive 9/11 movie.

    I haven't seen it, nor do I plan to. I can't even watch the things the History Channel is showing lately.

    Talk about damning someone with faint praise.

    I'll bet this movie is funnier than "You, Me and Dupree"

    you need to be one of those guys that just offers fluff reviews of truly awful flicks just to end up on the poster.

    Did we catch Osama yet? I know, I'll bet he's one of those snakes on a plane.

    Saw the movie recently. I concur with the "eh" review. It seemed like a Lifetime movie with stars in it ... if you want to call Nic Cage a star.

    I love Maggie Gyllenhaal, I mean LOVE her, but she was average in this role. Michael Pena was pretty good. I was looking for some insight into what it was like to be responding to that mess. I guess there was some of that, but the film devolved into a story about how the families dealt with the possible loss of the two Port Authority cops. You know they're going to be OK. So the movie loses its hook right there.

    I'll admit that I got a little watery over one scene in particular late in the movie. It didn't deserve the waterworks. I blame Mrs. Passy.

    Saw this on Saturday.

    I was expecting it to be better. It was the first 9-11 movie I've watched, and it definitely brings back all of those feelings.

    PaseanaARG's review is about right.

    There were a lot of people with watery eyes leaving the theatre. There was a decent crowd there for an early afternoon movie.

    we knew how "apollo 13" and "a perfect storm" were going to end, too, but they were still powerful to me. i suspect this will be, too. 8) 8) 8)

    It's all of the things it's supposed to be.
    But it's like "Passion of the Christ." Yeah, it's well made and yeah it does what it was supposed to do. But I didn't walk out of it saying "Wow, great movie" and would have felt like shit saying "Wow, that movie sucked didn't it?"
