Many times I wanted to fall asleep throughout this slow, tedious, lack of dialgue, dull, monotonous, bizzarre setting, wierd people, dreary, meaningless, pointless, 'movie'. Heck even after watching it, my wife and I both were waiting for the movie to start. I checked the screen menu and sure enough, I clicked on movie.

I've watched better 30 second commercials for womens 'monthly products' than this.

I also feel very sad I wasted $20.00 on a movie that was hyped up too much.

Final Thoughts: Thumbs down!
Better yet, anyone who wants it, send me a decent Habanos to cover shipping and its out the door.

I had some folks talk to me about this movie, and their review was negative. So far, most of the people whom I have spoken to have not enjoyed this movie.

I don't think I will see it given the negative reviews by so many people.

After watching this movie, one sentence came to mind: What was the point? :s

For only the 2nd time in my life I actually walked out of a theater before a movie was over!

The first time was Black Rain with Michael Douglas.

So is it just a coincidence that they were both set in Japan?

:rolleyes:

I lived in Osaka for a while (Where Black Rain was filmed) but other than getting a kick out of seeing familiar sights, I agree the movie sucked.

i have to say that i liked it. it WAS really slow, with lots of silence. bill murrays portrayal of a washed-up movie star hanging onto his career by doing commercials in japan was pretty funny.
it was very different from some of the more run of the mill hollywood type movies in that it was not at all over the top.
it was also sort of fun to look at in that 'why has bhodidharma left for the east' kind of way.

ymmv

I agree. I liked it. It was a bit slow and nothing really happend. Felt a bit empty after seeing it. I dont think it would have worked without Bill Murray. It had some strange humor.

4.0 out of 5.0

Great movie. I like to see Bill Murray doing different movies. He is a great actor and is capable of much more than comedy. Wish him and Scarlet Johanson hooked up though.

What was wrong with dodgeball? I thought it was hillarious. Who would have thought there would ever be a movie about dodgeball? :r

That is exactly what I thought. If Seinfeld was the show about nothing, Lost in Translation was the movie where nothing happened. I have a 2 hour hole in my life from this film...
