pushing your patience is more like it. i can't say that this movie's outright bad but at the end of the day you're left wondering, "wow, did i just totally waste my time?" i fell asleep for half an hour and didn't miss a beat. the only really good thing here is cate blanchett's acting, and the incendiary prescence of angelina jolie -- even if her nipple was gratuitously exposed. i don't think seeing angelina's nipple has ever been so underwhelming.
this is the movie where billy bob and angelina met, so i guess it's got some historical significance, if nothing else.
