Has anyone else seen this yet? I went last night, and I LOVED it.
I'm a big Vince Vaughn fan, so I expected to like it. But after the reviews, I thought it'd be one I enjoyed, rather than one of my favorites of his. I was wrong. It's one of my favorites. As Vince has received more fame with roles like Old School and Wedding Crashers, I've been a little sorry that more people don't know how good he was in movies like A Cool Dry Place and Return to Paradise. It's good to know they're getting to see that side of him again.
I will say it had more of an indy feel than I expected. Not in a huge way, but they did use more long drawn out dialogue scenes than most studio movies do. And I'm surprised that so many have said it is not a comedy. It is definitely a comedy - just more to the likes of Sex and the City than Wedding Crashers. It's funny, but also poignant and emotional.
I also have to say, I LOVED all the references to past movies of Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Peter Billingsley, and others. They were so subtle that you wouldn't notice them if you weren't familiar with the actor's past work. But for big fans, they were definitely there, and fun!
