The Men Who Stare At Goats

When I saw the trailer for this movie months ago, I said to myself, "Self, that looks like it is going to be one funny movie." But since then, The Men Who Stare At Goats has gotten mediocre to just plain bad reviews. So, when it was released on DVD I asked myself, "Self, do you really want to put this movie in your Netflix queue and waste an entire evening with yet another bad movie?" I can't remember how the rest of the conversation went, but the movie ended up in my queue anyway. And we watched it, just the other night.

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!

How does one know if they have a real sense of humor or not? I mean I wouldn't want to waste my time.

I never wanted to watch that but you've convinced me to give it a try. I liked your "Self, ..." It made me laugh and read it out loud to my daughter. Thanks for the giggles, and the review.
