When this movie first came out, I had mixed feelings. I wanted to see it, and yet I didn't. I am not a huge fan of Brad Pitt, so that was the main reason why I had no desire to see it. I read several reviews and heard good things, so I vowed that I'd at least watch it one time.
This past week when my boyfriend and I ventured to my used DVD store, I found a copy. I asked him if it was any good, and being the movie whore that he is, he had seen it and said that it was hilarious. He and I share the same type of humor, so I knew I would like it as well. Only being $4, I decided to purchase it. It sat on my shelf for a few days and I wondered when I'd get up and actually watch the damn thing.
Last night, my dad walked into my room, asking if I wanted to watch a movie. I said "sure" and that I had bought a bunch of movies that I hadn't watched yet. I saw that he had pulled out 'Burn After Reading' and I assured him that it wasn't his type of movie and that he may not like it. He looked through the other ones that I had purchased and said that he'd like to watch BAR, so I agreed and followed him downstairs. After a quick munchie run to Wal-Mart, we returned and began to watch the movie.
And I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my dad. The plot became a little confusing, what with everyone sleeping with each other, but other than that, it wasn't that hard to follow. I found it to be a very funny movie and I would watch it over and over again (within reason, of course).
