AZChristian I don't think you're stupid at all! I read the book twice before I saw the movie and seeing the movie a second time today, I caught a LOT more that I missed the first time. It's just that kind of movie. Both times I saw it, people walked out before it was over. I think it's just not everyone's cup of tea. There are lots of movies I don't care for. That's one of the things I like about streaming movies from Netflix... if I start one I don't like, I can just bail on it.
