    :clap:

    Excellent review phil :smashin:. I'm absolutely DESPERATE to see this movie (my local Odeon are not showing it), and I HAVE to import it, your review has just nudged me into doing so :).

    I love Bill Murray's work and am really looking forward to seeing this, if he wins the oscar I can die a happy man :D.

    :)

    Watched this tonight and found it utterly captivating. Almost dream-like in places, make sure your monitor's calibrated as it's very dark in places:)

    Superb film (one for the grown-ups at last!) and an excellent performance from Murray.

    Murray fans beware - it ain't "Caddyshack", "Stripes" or "Ghostbusters" - a different beast altogether.

    Have to agree on that, I had never really noticed her work before this, but she is brilliant in this movie and her last line of dialogue is full of emotion that you believe.:smashin:

    Scarlett Johansson:

    Fabulous to look at and IMHO a great actress. If you haven't seen her in "Ghost World", you should...
