This movie came out at the same time a lot of other movies did. Many of which also featured George Clooney. At the time it passed me by completely. I hadn't even seen the trailer. But tonight I watched the whole thing.
And I loved it! It was unusual in the best way possible. It's a story unlike any I'd heard, seen or read so far. And better yet, it was funny too!
(Youtube isn't working for me today, but I would still stick to the usual 1-minute rule)
I also loved the Jedi-thing in combination with Ewan McGregor actually being in this movie. I suppose that wouldn't come across in the book, yet after seeing this film, I'd love to read that as well.
