I read the book and I LOVED it. I didn’t think I would, as it borders on “romance novel” at times, but it was great! I gobbled it up in few days. The movie is out today and stars Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, who I think are great picks for the lead characters. I was SOO excited to see it, but I heard some reviews that said it was terrible–like walk out in the first 30 minutes, bad…sigh.
I think I’m still going to go see this. Who’s with me?

Are the reviews really that bad? That’s disappointing. FI and I were planning on having a night at the movies tonight so we could see it. I loved the book so, so much. (But, I guess the book is usually better than the movie anyway.)
I think we’ll still go see it — maybe it’s not as bad as what the reviews say? Fingers crossed!

The movies are never as good as the books! I’m reading this book right now in hopes to see the movie though! I don’t like to spoil the book though, so I’m trying to get through that first! If you do go see it – let me know if you feel as if it was terrible or true to the book.
I think one of the only movies that I’ve seen that was very true to the book was Pride & Prejudice. It hit all the key moments and I just love both the movie and the book. Perfect!

I haven’t read the book….but the preview for the movie has made me want to see it sooo badly! I may even wear a book. I have a HUGE girl crush on rachel mcadams. She is soo beautiful.
Yes very true – movies are never as good as the books!

It’s getting bad reviews, apparently they changed the ending to a happier one because test audiences didn’t like it. I think I’ll wait for DVD.

I think I read the book, but honestly, I don’t remember it very well. I was thinking of seeing this with my sister, but wanted to wait to see what the reviews were like. If it doesn’t look great, I might wait and rent it when it comes out on DVD.

Whattt?!?! I hadn’t heard any reviews yet, but the preview looks so good! I absolutely loved the book…I still want to see the movie regardless!

hm, the only review I’ve read so far was pretty positive…I haven’t read the book yet but was interested in seeing it…

hmm, FI is taking me to see it tonight for my bday and I can’t wait! I can’t say enough about how much I LOVED the booked. I’ve seen mixed reviews, but how often have you loved a film that recieved poor reviews and hated a film that recieved great ones? That seems to happen often to me. Anyway, most reviewers agree that you’ll need to suspend your disbelief for this film and just go with the flow to enjoy it.

I so want to see this! I’m a big fan of reading the books first but I’m not sure I can wait with this one… Hubby isn’t too keen on it though so we’ll have to see… Pretty sure it’s my turn to chose

I have never read the book. I am not sure if we will see the movie. But I hate it when they change the endings! I heard they did that for My Sister’s Keeper, which made me not even want to see it.

Ok I just read My Sisters Keeper too and am curious about the ending to the movie. Why do they do that!!

I read a review that said it was so bad people were laughing at it! But I am curious to see what everyone thinks.

If I get off of work early (which might be the case as my boss is hungover…) I might go catch the matinee on my own! lol yup, I am one of THOSE people who goes to the movies by themselves!
I re-read the book last weekend so cant wait to see the movie while its still fresh in my mind!
