Director: Alexander Payne

I felt that the trailer for this film was very deceiving. I thought Kristen Wiig was going to be in the whole film but she was only in about 40 minutes of it. The film doesn’t really depict any plot points. It was actually quite boring. It looked really promising but I found myself really bored and I couldn’t care about Matt Damon’s character at all. I felt sorry for him when his wife left him but that was as far as my emotions went for him. After that, the story was so boring, I didn’t care what happened to the character.

If someone asked me to describe this film and what happened in it, I would struggle. Nothing really happens so if anyone’s thinking of watching this film then I’d say give it a miss. It’s not worth the watch. It has a long running time which it definitely shouldn’t have because it’s so dull.
