Yes! Hilarious. Saw it last night + advanced screening of the Adult Swim cartoon. Movie = great, cartoon, not so much.

I just went b/c my gf is into it, I wasn't expecting much, but the movie surprised me. Really friggin funny.

Sucked though, I was going to try and sneak in some Taco Bell into the theatre, but she stopped me saying I'd embarrass her. Damn near the entire audience brought in their own food come to find out hahaha

If you haven't seen this one yet give it a try...and watch all the way to the end of the closing credits for an easter egg.

I was going to watch this until someone in this thread I believe ruined the ending.

I myself didn't see that post but if the poster made conclusions about the ending, they would be wrong. It is one of those 'See it and decide for yourself' type of films.

For those who had only watched the North American cut, do yourself a favour and try and locate this version. It certainly adds a new dimension to the chemistry between the roles played by Jen Reno and Natalie Portman. Beyond that, the film has aged well with Gary Oldman's trademark psycho " Moooooooozart!!! !"

Agreed. The Euro release is a much stronger film and is avaiilable in North America on DVD as either an Extended or Director's Cut.
If memory serves, it is 14 minutes longer than the original North American theatrical release and every second of it belongs in the film as Luc Besson intended it to be.
It also makes me wonder as to how much more footage was filmed further to this and never used..

I definitely got stares in the theater when I yelled out "Look! It's D'Angelo from The Wire!!!"

I was put off by the ridiculous sounding behaviour of the wolves. I don't need to see another film that's dumbed down

I watched Drive last night. I really got pulled in - I'd only planned on watching e first 30 minutes or so, but I wound up watching the whole thing. It's a very interesting movie - and like The Professional, uses a conventional action film storyline to tell a very affecting, human story.

At the last moment I was struck by the similarity to the end of Shane, and on furer reflection I realized that there were a number of similarities in both plot and theme. A quick google showed that I'm not the first to notice this:


"Both films are about unconsummated passion and unspoken love and the way these feelings are channeled into acts of violence."

"Both films position their hero as a silent loner who becomes the protector of a married woman and a small boy. Unable to consummate the relationship with the woman, the hero attempts to protect her husband instead. In the end, he expresses the depth of his love in a violent showdown with a superior force of evil men. Wounded, he rides off into the horizon to an uncertain future, possibly even to his own death.

That, my friends, is a damn love story."
