Let me admit up front that I wanted to see this movie primarily because I have a great love of John Cusack. It take a lot for me to actually settle down to watch a DVD; events of late made me so desirious of such an escape; and everything came together swimmingly.
As I prepared myself, I saw the true story of a martian child on the DVD and decided to watch before the start of the movie and was glad I did! I didn't know it was based on a true story and the story piqued my interest.
Overall, it was a good movie. I wish there was more character development, some deeper dialogue.
And frankly I am impressed I actually watched a movie in less than three months! I don't do that very often.
