God this made me cry so much too! No idea what else to say really, it really got to me (especially the helicopter scene which Beate mentioned before) and even made me forget my hatred of Steve Carrell. 9/10

Gosh, I have to agree. I was fidgeting, eating and looking around a lot. Not a good sign. It was so loooooooooooooooooooooong. And god so depressing. I realise the subject matter wasn't an uplifting one, but geez, no need to make it worse. Keira Knightley is not by any means a favourite of mine, but she was worse than usual and her face began to annoy me with that weird pouting. Steve Carrell is normally quite funny and I thought this was far too much of a departure... it's like watching a sad clown... some things just shouldn't be. Quite telling that my +1 said she almost wished she had to work late!
A meagre 5/10

LOL, I can't get that song out of my head now. The first thing I did last night is go to youtube, find the version by The Hollies and play it on loop until OH looked cranky. Today I am at a desk with no one around so now and then I spontaneously burst into song. :giggle:
