The Truth Is Out There
Verified purchase
There's a good story (by Patrick Marber) being told in this film and the performances are almost believable but both seem to be fighting against Mike Nichols direction that makes these protagonists and their relationships all too rounded, all too erudite and reasoned in their arguments, and mostly all too civilised (even the spit and slap towards the end seem half hearted) when relationships, especially, when they go wrong are none of those (see Jeremy Kyle for the exact opposite). Nichols even managed to supress the comedy that looked to be in the script in order to keep the wholesome intensity as he looks to say something important about truth. Still it was as I say a good story and the actors are worth watching in their battle so not without merit.

What a complete waste of time
Verified purchase
Such disappointment! A bunch of mature people behaving like kids with newly-found sexual fantasies. IN fact thirteen year olds may be better dispositioned than this bunch

A story line without a story.
Verified purchase
Is there a story in this movie? Answer is yes! But where is it?! That's my question! Movie's beginning itself is with improbability. The way a person involved in accident responding saying " Hello stranger" is so unrealistic. This movie is just a series of events good for a newspaper, not good for a good movie. Sadly Julia Robert is in it. Was she so desperate to act in this badly directed and badly written movie.

Don’t waste your money
Verified purchase
Wow! A great cast but really hard to follow this movie, no real story and the twist at the end added nothing. We were ready the story on wiki just to u d’état and the time jumps and what the heck was going on! Waste of both our time and money.

Won’t mend a broken heart
Verified purchase
Great film, but there ain’t no laughs. Natalie Portman and Jude Law are marvellous.

Do not watch this film if you’re trying to mend a broken heart.

Great performances from all the actors
Verified purchase
This is a tremendous film with an interesting time line and some great performances. All the people are pretty unpleasant and selfish, but nevertheless it’s interesting and a good film.
