A real story for true film lovers
1 December 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most gratifying films I have seen in a long time. It has distinct characters, a thoroughly engaging story, beautiful cinematography, and wonderful performances. John Travolta has not performed like this in years. It reminded me of what a great actor he is when he really puts his mind to it. Scarlett Johannson is better than she has ever been because this is the juiciest role she has played to date and she does it flawlessly. Gabriel Macht (who I was unaware of) gives a wonderful performance as well. The music is amazing. I heard they're trying to rush a soundtrack out. If you want to be captivated and moved with a few laughs in between, go see this movie.
