@PenguinDust: Yeah, it's not terrible, but being a fan of Chandler I thought Garner was a pretty terrible choice for Marlowe, and I didn't like how they shifted everything to a 70s setting. And really, there was very little of Chandler that showed through in the movie. Most of the snappy dialogue was gone, and there wasn't a very good mood either. I remember one particular line where Garner is surrounded by thugs who motion towards their cars for him to get in, and Garner says "beep beep". Come on! Is that seriously the best dialogue you can come up with?? It ain't written by Chandler, and it certainly isn't Marlowe.
Out of curiosity though, what is your favorite movie adapted from Chandler?
