Lots of people criticized this movie's speed. It was slow moving at times but so am I. Our culture is so used to fast action videos, playstations, computer games etc that they find it hard to just sit and relax. I thoroughly enjoyed the interplay between the 2 completely opposite characters. I laughed a lot throughout it. A bit slow...maybe...but for me..it was just fine. Great character studies. I really liked it. My husband...not so much.
From the reviews and the previews I expected A LOT more. It was slow moving and the important parts of the theme lacked development. The first hour could of easily been done in 15 minutes and spent more time on important stuff. In the Christian realm we need to aspire to a high quality. Very disappointing and we'd be hard pressed to watch a movie with the two actors again.
A truely awesome movie in my eyes. The story line was very good. It shows two totally different people, of age,race, and background , draw close to each other. Shows how a man, due to circumstances, wishes to live out his life as a hermit. The young woman is guilt ridden with her life and her fake life she portrays to her parents.
As part of her guilt, she must get home for Christmas, and be part of her families activities. The guy finally agrees to drive her home, if only to stop her pestering him, and asking questions about himself.
During the trip, and many humorous adventures, they draw closer, They, both come to terms with their problems, and in doing so, develope a wonderful bond.
