(it) wrote: Probably the best film I've seen in the last five years.There have been plenty of 'coming of age' stories, but much fewer 'coming to wisdom' films. This is one of the better ones, as elder socialite Jep (Toni Servillo ) pulls himself out of the hedonistic and corrupting influence of the Rome social scene.This is, in my opinion, a remake of Trainspotting (1996). But while Trainspotting was a film about lower class British heroin junkies, this film is about upper middle class Italian yuppies. Both protagonists in both films have to try hard to break out of their chains in order to be free.For Jep, his freedom requires him to abandon the fashionable nihilism of his youth. Once a promising young novelist, Jep fell into a deep slumber of sorts, wasting away decades of his life in an endless parade of meaningless sex, meaningless parties, meaningless art and meaningless friends. Now, on the precipice of old age, Jep starts to piece together the tragedies he tried to bury in his life: his failed love life, his failed career and his failing spirituality.This is a kind of redemption story and a piercing critique of the state of Western culture in the 21st century. Smart film lovers will appreciate the lavish imagery, the thought-provoking dialogue and the devilishly witty humor.

(it) wrote: This was the last screen appearance of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin together. Unfortunately it did not end on a high note. A very light romantic comedy that is more interesting as a curiosity than as a movie. Actually, I would of gave it only four stars instead of five if it were not for Dean Martin, Mr. Cool himself, who pretty much steals the film. Deborah Kerr, looks great, except for the horrid hat she wears at the beginning of the movie. Look also for Nancy Sinatra, Ceasar Romero, Tony Bill, John McGiver, Trini Lopez and the great Joi Lansing.I wonder if anyone out there remembers Joi? A poor man's Jayne Mansfield, who spent many years doing small uncredited roles in movies before getting minor recognition doing TV in the 1950's and 1960's. She was best kown for her roles in [i]The Bob Cummings Show[/i] (aka Love That Bob) and as Gladys Flatt on [i]The[/i] [i]Beverly Hillbillies.[/i]

(es) wrote: The cast gave a very compelling and emotionally enthralling performance along with the story being inexplicably true to the truths of living with ALS. The fault however, is in the slow and extreme predictability of the events that leave no room for connection.

(gb) wrote: Nearly all of the supporting voice talent was completely wasted (Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen) as they had nothing to do & no substantial character quirks. Plus, Jack Black became a little overbearing towards the end. Some of it was funny, some wasn't. Overall, and underwhelming experience for such a hyped-up movie.
