If you've got a free 2 hours, go eat wasps. It would be a lot less painful than this movie.

Awful movie. Might be on the of the most disjointed movies I have ever seen. Not worth the gas to pick it up.

This movie was the biggest waste of time ever. Put it this way---I don't even think this would qualify for Rotten Tomatoes, it was so bad. And the ending? I wanted to hunt down the director and slap his face for robbing me of two hours of my life! Do not waste your time on this.

I was truly surprised at how bad this movie was. I had previously read the book, which I thought was pretty good. It was a long two hours to sit through.

tried 3 times to get into it...could be the most boring movie ( I say could be as I was unable to get past 30 minutes) of the year.

The preview looked good. Could not watch more then five minutes. Terrible.
So glad I didn't have to pay for it. Would not rcommend and I enjoy watching Laura Linney and Richard Gere movies.

This movie is hardly like the book. The book is very superior, and the movie introduced too many unnecessary elements with little effort made to tie them all together.

Great book to read, though.

Terrible movie! it made no sense to me what so ever. Now I LOVE Laura Linney in her performances in many films, perhaps she should have skipped this one. I give it a F

What a waste of talent!! If you like the premise watch "Carnage" with Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, and Christoph Waltz - directed by Roman Polanski... This film seems to have at least two directors which follow totally divergent paths to show the pathology of the parents. The journey to Gettysburg is unnecessary and contributes nothing but confusion. The lying between Laura Linney ( whom I usually love in her performances ) and her husband Steve Coogan ( baaad casting ) is so pervasive that you end up wondering if anything about the couple is accurate. Horrible film!! Kristi and Abby Tabby
