The movie starts with a disclaimer, you know kind of like Based On True Events, or Hastily Adapted from Such-and-Such book by an Out-Of-Work-Alcoholic-Novelist. As it turns in the case of The Men Who Stare At Goats, More Of This Is True Then You Would Believe. And with a little internet research, you can easily find that more of it is in fact true than you WANT to believe.
This was the funniest movie I've seen in a long time! George Clooney is freaking hilarious. It amazes me that someone can act so serious and come across so funny. The story, the cast, the characters are all excellent. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has a REAL sense of humor. I know that it's not going to be for everybody, there isn't any sophomoric bathroom humor, or gratuitous nudity, and you may be expected to think a little to actually get the jokes.
Two Enthusiastic Thumb up!
