4 out of 10 Clooney great as usual
Eddie from Kildare, 02 Aug 2012
Clooney as usual excellent, the most under-rated actor in ages. Probably too good looking for the "critics". Really good movie about death of a loved one, betrayal and family relationships. Great acting, dialogue and characters. Recommend it.

4.5 out of 10 Really enjoyable film
Aisling from Mayo, 09 Jul 2012
Nothing very interesting happens in this film but it's still very enjoyable. Easy to watch and Clooney does a really good job of his role. Not a tear jerker, nor is it very gripping, but you will care about what happens to the characters.

2.5 out of 10 Bit slow
tim from Cork, 03 Apr 2013
Thought it was very average , tried to be a comedy and a drama but failed on both fronts. Characters especially the kids were not very believable and really couldn't empathise with any of them . The ending of the movie was also very flat .

2 out of 10 Why so many oscar nominations??????
annemarie from Meath, 12 Aug 2012
I thought it was one of those movies you watch and ask yourself why am i watching, you are waiting for something to happen., It was nothing amazing or exciting. Dont know why it got so many oscar nominations. Clooney was good in it.

5 out of 10 Brilliant
Seamus from Monaghan, 22 Oct 2012
A brilliant film that draws you in. George Clooney is excellent as always and the supporting cast are superb. The story begins and you think 'oh this is going to be dark' but it's not. It's funny and very moving. A great film.
