    Watched this tonight and it's really great! :) Lots of superb acting, lots of great humour, and of course that fantastic plot.

    I never read the original book, but watching the 'making of' documentaries, it would appear that the movie is quite different from the book with lots of non-trivial changes. The purists won't be happy, but anyone like me will not care one iota and in fact may even agree with the screenwriter that it makes for a better movie (because as we all know, a film is very different from a novel). :)

    Guy Pearce (Memento, Neighbours :D) is superb in his role and delivers some very funny lines. Jim Caviezel (the son from Frequency) and Richard Harris (loads of movies :p) are also absolutely great.

    All in all a superb movie that's got great rewatchability to boot! :)

    Available at a very reasonable price from most DVD suppliers. ;)

    Is it as good as the Richard Chamberlain classic Squirrel God?

    I loved the Richard Chamberlain Count Of Monte Cristo but I might just check out the new one on your recommendation. If I don't like it though, you'll have to agree to refund me Squirrel ;).

    Haven't seen it yet :(. Tell me what channel and time it's on next and I'll try and catch a glimpse ;).

    Nintendo's marketing has been getting much better since the launch of the Gamecube though.
