  3. When watching this movie, one thought kept running through my head, “How did this get made?” It was a confusing tale that includes about thirty characters that are all loosely related to each other. I was too distracted by trying to keep the odd relationships straight to concentrate on the pointless message of the movie, which seemed to be that weird things happen in life. Not the most fulfilling moral in the world.

    Tom Cruise’s performance did not stand out from the others in the movie. I could not understand how he got nominated with the other fine actors for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. All of the others had outstanding performances in incredible movies, yet Cruise didn’t do a whole lot in this movie.

    I don’t have a problem with long movies. I usually appreciate a longer movie, but this could not hold my attention. The story bounced from character to character so quickly that I didn’t have enough time to care for any one of them. So I got bored.

    This movie was an incredible waste of an evening. I have thoughts that I might like it better after seeing it a second or third time, but I don’t want to take that risk! I only have so much time to waste. I definitely do not recommend this film.

  4. Although many people gave this movie 5 stars I don’t even want to give it 1 star. This was the most mixed up movie I have ever seen. It jumped all over the place, I did not understand what was going on, it was very weird. I have see hundreds of movies and I can usually find some good in a movie until I seen this one, which I could not force myself to watch until the end.

  5. Roger Ebert called it “operatic.” You’ll need to patience of an opera fan to sit through this one. For the record I loved “Boogie Nights,” (also directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and with many of the same actors) but there are no characters like Dirk Diggler here. Just unappealing, uninteresting losers and creeps. A lot of Indiglo moments, as this thing drags on forever.
