Since I’m obviously the last person in the world to watch this there’s not much I can add to the above, but I did have to watch it, if only because so many people who don’t travel have told me I should.

I didn’t think it was too bad, to be honest.

Obviously it has no truths in it, and Bingham’s motivational talks are supposed to be inane, aren’t they?

If anyone but Clooney was playing this character, we’d see how the job he thought was perfectly suited for him has become a straitjacket.

He tries to break away and

fails.
And at least the ending wasn’t happy. In fact, it was fairly tragic.

That said, seeing it on a flight alongside the Cohen Brothers A Serious Man made you realise the film was definitely a lightweight.
