not great, not bad

This movie was kind of crazy in a laid back way. I kind of liked it. The scenes with Ewan McGregor and George Clooney in the dessert are funny, and I was amused that Ewan McGregor was a Jedi yet again. I firmly believe that Jeff Bridges stole the show as a hippie drill sargeant of sorts... (Hippie, I know, SHOCKER, right?!)

It wasn't awesome, but it was interesting. Put it on while you're working on other things.
