0.5 out of 10 Dissapointing
Monica from Dublin, 28 Apr 2012
This is one terrible movie. Sad, sad, directorial debut by Philip Seymour Hoffman. One of the most boring movies since 'Synecdoche NY', incidentally another of Hoffman's movies.The plot is pointless, you don't care about any of the annoyingly quirky characters or what happens to them, it goes on and on. Avoid unless trying to fix your insomnia

1.5 out of 10 No Thanks
Seamus from Monaghan, 26 Jul 2012
I love Philip Seymour Hoffman as an actor. But this film? I watched the first half and hour thinking it'll start soon and be great. But it never started. I gave up after an hour and fifteen minutes and even tho' I knew there was only a short bit left I just couldn't face any more.

4.5 out of 10 Funny, clever & thought provoking!
Aisling from Dublin, 18 Jun 2012
Philip Seymour Hoffman does not fail to deliver, as usual, as both lead role and director of this screen adaption of a stage play.

What's it about....
Jack Goes Boating sees Academy Award Winner Philip Seymour Hoffman making his feature directorial debut. Hoffman plays Jack - a New York limo driver, who is set up on a blind date with Connie (Academy Award Nominee Amy Ryan - The Wire, Gone Baby Gone) by mutual close friends. Charmed by Connie's subtle grace and dry humour, he sets up a second date before realising he's out of his depth: Connie dreams of going boating and loves good food... and Jack can neither swim nor cook....
