Doubt

Just saw this movie today and thought it was very good.

The plot was excellent and the ending was perfect, not to mention to overall acting and especially Meryl Streep.

The cult guy at work saw it, said it was amazing, particularly the interplay between the three main characters. I'm hoping to squeeze some time in to see it.

I despise her overall Streep-i-ness, too, but I think that since she's not doing a fake foreign accent, I'll be able to withstand her.

And I like Philip Seymour Hoffman. I thought he was great in Capote.

Well, I added it to the Netflix queue, so I'll get back to you about it in a few months I guess.

He was good even in his little bitty part in the Talented Mr. Ripley.

I know who PSH is, but after looking through his filmography, I realized that the only movie he's been in that I have actually seen is Scent of a Woman.

I know, I need to get out more.

He's been in some great films, and he is a good actor. Get thee to a movie rental house, Pie.

C-man, that was funny!
