Great actors.

Some clever scenes.

Stupid movie.

The entire movie seems to have been written as a justification for the discussion towards the end between Robert Duvall and Haley Joel Osment where Duvall explains to Osment that there are some things that may or may not be true - honory, duty, lasting love - but that a man must believe in because you have to believe in something.

That is a good point. I just wish the rest of the movie were not so darn stupid - they were trying for a sort of magical realism, but I was never willing to suspend my disbelief.

Still, I watched the whole thing. Then again, I would watch Michael Caine, Robert Duvall, and Haley Joel Osment take turns reading the telephone book.
