Oh, oh, now you've done it,Tim...I *am* going to have to see it again. Maybe tonight.

One thing I enjoyed was all the little subtle jokes. I found myself the only one in the theatre I could hear laughing, a couple times. But everyone else seemed to enjoy it too.

The logic behind the situation in the real world needs a lot of excuses to shore it up, but I was willing to do so at least for the length of the movie, for the sake of the rest of it.
