Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: For all of Gus Van Sant's narrative weavings, for all of his grabs towards emotions and reactions, it amounts to little; a belated film with belated functions.

A bit slow and dreary, still filled with life and literary shenanigans! You're the man now dog (Scottish accent).

8th grade. dont remember. Sean Connery can act the pants off a virgin. Gus Van Sant still needs a biography, flixster.
