And I’m not blogging from the theater so no updates until much later. (I lied, there’s a two o’clock trailer update scheduled for 3:00pm.)
I ended up having a small kernel of popcorn embedded in the back of my throat during most of the movie so perhaps I was a bit grumpy but the movie was good. A bit overrated IMO and about 30 minutes too long. Yes, Heath Ledger is great in it. Yes, Maggie Gyllenhaal took over Katie Holmes role of “speed bump” where the movie slowed down every time she appeared on screen.
Now, excuse me while I go scrape the back of my esophagus with a coat hanger.
