Here's what I wrote on Friday:
Ali G and Marla Singer were the highlights. Saw this, last night, woke up this morning and thought maybe I was being too harsh but then I realised I was only remembering the good parts, which were few and far between. Just bland and monotonous, could have benefitted heavily from some heavy editing and some songs cut. There are some good scenes though and the performances are all top notch. I think the fault lies with the directing here which makes me glad Hooper didn't get a director nomination. For a film that was supposed to be emotional, I felt little to nothing. The first hour or so is pretty good, though. I really wanted to like this film, and there is a lot here to like but for now it rests at a 6/10.
