|One of his best movies, but then they all are, excellent||Anonymous 07/08/2012 |
| It never ceases to amaze me, how very talented Russell Crowe is. I love all of his movies and believe he should have gotten an Academy Award for this and other movies of his. I eagerly await his latest movie release of Les Miserables...saw a preview last time I was at the movies.|
In this movie, I thought that when he played a gay man, it would wreck his career, but it is one of the funniest and best movies I've ever seen. (At 64 years old, that's saying a heck of a lot!) Keep up the good work, Russell!
