One-hundred-twenty-five minutes of old men talking.

An exhausted buddy movie about three Vietnam vets reunited to bury a son killed in Iraq in 2003. Middle-brow entertainment a notch below Linklater's usual product. It'll probably work for you if you're a Bryan Cranston fan, but not if you come to the movie looking for some heavy bass from Larry Fishburne or some Steve Carrell tomfoolery. It's a big disappointment to think that this is the sequel to THE LAST DETAIL. The illumination of the ambiguous American attitude toward the military -- hate it for what it does but proud to belong to it -- has merit but somehow the film fails to find this focus.

Horrible- implausible, impossible plot and script.

It's an okay movie.

Neither an indictment or endorsement of war, we see the unspoken memories from a shared experience together that has united them again. Sad. I think it’s odd that comedians, like Steve Carell, play serious parts so honestly. Not a big Bryan Cranston fan, but he captured ADHD, mocking bad boy perfectly. I was surprised how much I liked it. I like Richard Linklater’s films.

Touching film. I'm not sure why this it's listed as a comedy, I'd call it a drama -- sure it has funny bits, because done-right life has at least some funny bits. It helps to have at least some understanding of Viet Nam veterans and the military. Well worth watching, but IMO the preview makes it out to be more of a comedy than it is. Pleasing combination of actors between Carell, Cranston, and the ever indomitable Fishburne.

To the gentleman below, thank you for your service to your country. It is my hope that many other KCLS patron will experience this movie. Every member of the cast drew me in to the movie. I wanted to be there with them. I think most of us know the contribution are servicemen make to preserving the values we hold so dear. This is one time when words are not enough to give adequate praise to a movie!

I served two years National Service in the British Army. Although I never served in battle you never forget the friends you make while serving. The three main characters in this movie remind me of fellow servicemen when I served. I believe many will get something out of this movie.

Another winner from director Richard Linklater, this is a moving film about loss that draws parallels between the Iraq War and the Vietnam War. The three leads all deliver strong performances, especially Bryan Cranston.

why does Hollywood think that most sentences of dialog need a cuss word to make it a complete sentence? is this the way most people talk? and why use God's and Jesus' name? what does that prove? how does it help tell the story? couldn't get past the f-bombs and misuse of God's name to see if there was an actual story.
