but what's up with that scene when edward norton's character saves harvey keitel? or the scene where the boy gets struck by lightning?those scenes did not come across as funny.both were bizarre scenes that would probably get any other filmmaker scolded.

it's a unique film but in my opinion that doesnt make it great. some scenes felt forced and it seemed like wes anderson was unsure about what to do with the two characters once they were alone.

the beginning did nothing to set you up for their meeting once they runaway.

one of the few scenes I did enjoy was when they write notes back and forth to one another and it shows how they got close.

I also liked some of the sets. the house was built unlike any other I have ever seen but it wasn't enough for me to love the movie. I did like it a little


I did like the royal tenenbaums a lot. I was hoping this movie would be witty like that
Uh oh, guys, silentasylum has amnesia.
