My wife and I watched this satire last night. We both thought it was an excellent surprise. Aaron Eckhart’s performance alone sold the movie to its audience, and he was completely believeable as the “smartest guy in the room.” Mindy Marin did the casting for the film, and based on her previous work, one would expect her to match the roles with specific actors as well as she did. The great Robert Duvall, the jittery William Macy, the snake Rob Lowe, Sam Elliott, who’s so cool he makes Fonzie seem like Steve Urkel, and the very cute, but very annoying Katie Holmes were assembled to play the big-screen characters created in Christopher Buckley’s work.
I’d recommend seeing it if you haven’t. If you have, thoughts?
