Smart People

...was not such a smart film. I was expecting a lot. Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Page are two of my favorites. Page was brilliant. Parker was not. She is really good at playing an annoying, selfish, whiny girlfriend, but lacks depth. Dennis Quaid's character was so annoying and all I wanted to do throughout the entire film was punch him in his face.

I think the fact that Ellen Page's character was a young Republican and a total bitch says something about the world. I also liked the subtle (maybe intentional) hint of Obama toward the end.

Don't see this movie. It bored me to tears.
