Okay Dave, so what you're saying is I should convince my hubby to go to this movie for his BD coming up soon? Or is it just for Jennifer?

{pre-post script, we don't go to movies because Pete's too tall to sit comfortably in most movie theaters, but we did manage to sit through the last Harry Potter movie.}

Barbara-I really can't recommend it to anyone-It's pretty exhilarating for an hour-then devastatingly sad for the last 20 minutes-Too sad. If i get over it by tomorrow, maybe ill change my mind. Ill let you know.

Nostroke, my friend is a real movie buff and she won't go see it because she said she knows people who were bummed out for days after they saw it. I think I'll skip this one myself.

The movie is right up there with Revenge ( Costner and Madeline Stowe flick ) and Thelma and Louise imo.
Still a great flick though. Eastwood and Freeman bantering was priceless.
Now, the Champ with Ricky Schroeder and Jon Voigt. That one had me bawling. Of course, I was only a kid when I saw it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Any time I see Ricky Schroeder act it makes me cry /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif I mean, did you see him acting like a pool hustler in PHJ?

He had one mean graphite cue and a meaner follow-through?

Barb-Ill Definitely be there and i will try to get Capow there too. Ka-Ching is probably lost cause.

Im over the movie too but thats just the way i am. Even in pool, i get way too upset after a loss but 20 minutes later, Im back to (ab)normal. In this case it lasted a bit longer but still I do not reccommend this movie.

I didnt find Thelma and Louise in the ballpark with this flick depression wise.

MosconiJr...AMEN! Rick Schroeder couldn't pass for ANY poolplayer, let alone "one the top pros in the country"!
Nobody in that movie, including the lead character, even LOOKED like a real poolplayer. Terrible bridges, terrible strokes...just plain terrible! LOL But, heck, it IS a pool movie, so I've seen it a dozen times! LMAO /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
