    @narrator I just wasn't a fan, man. I'd like to list some reasons why but I haven't seen the movie in months so it's a little fuzzy from my brain. I'll try watching it again soon, but I don't expect any new results.

      @corey agreed, Wes Anderson's worst movie by far

            I loved the movie and felt the screenplay was decent. If anything, it's the great performances and Anderson's unique yet not expected gloss that made the film stand out as much as it did. Still, to each their own.

            That being said, @corey, I'd say dog sh*t is a bit harsh. Perhaps another watch will reveal to you how deadpan the dialogue really is meant to be. I mean, if you watched Anderson's other films, you should have expected something like this. I especially loved the naivety expressed by the two leads. Running from the harsh truth of life (as displayed by their bitter parents or Willis' character) showcases an instinctual desire to preserve innocence - by no means "sh*t". I mean, I'm sure there have been plenty of films far worse this year.

              @SpaceCowboy I thought the whole movie was dogsh*t. I'm surprised I gave it such a fair review back when I saw it. But that's just me.

                @corey Ouch! I loved the screenplay... until the last third when it went apesh*t.

                  Cool idea. If only the movie had an interesting screenplay.

                    That's actually kind of cool.
