I went to see a screening of it for a thing I'm doing for the I**** T*****, and I thought I'd hate it, and yes, there were many cheesey and annoying things about it, but I kind of enjoyed it. I mean, I wasn't bored. Maybe it's just because I love Maggie Gyllenhal, but anyway, I didn't spend the entire time trying to see my watch by the light of the screen.
