Synopsis


The Men Who Stare at Goats
Loosely adapted from a nonfiction book by Jon Ronson, Grant Heslov's directorial debut The Men Who Stare at Goats begins as heartbroken reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) heads off to imbed himself with troops as the Iraq War starts, but Wilton can't get himself into the country until he chances upon Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). It turns out Lyn spent decades as part of the New Earth Army -- a platoon of men, led by Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), who lived a new-age lifestyle in an attempt to cultivate extrasensory perception that would allow the U.S. army to win wars nonviolently. Bill now has a secret mission in Iraq, and allows Bob to come along. As the duo gets into a series of misadventures, Lyn shares with Bob the colorful history of the New Earth Army and chronicles the nefarious machinations of Larry Hooper (Kevin Spacey), whose jealousy of Lyn's remarkable skill brought an end to the group. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Hilarious

    This movie is absolutely hilarious. There are some fantasy-esque fiction elements in the plot, but as the movie states in the beginning "more of this is true than you would believe". The cast is outstanding, with Ewan McGregor and George Clooney the stars of the show. Don't listen to the other reviewer, this movie is a must see. I already own it, but anyone who enjoys a laugh should really purchase this film. One of my favorite movies of all time.

    This is a brilliant movie. The humor is as dry as it gets, but should entice a few giggles regardless of your preferred style of comedy. Plus, Boston's "More Than A Feeling" is one of the two songs featured. And that's a big plus. Jeff Bridges should have gotten the Oscar for this role. Forget Crazy Heart.

    Not Worth It

    I bought this on sale with a coupon and it still wasn't worth it. Nowadays, you need to want to save a DVD and this is good for a single viewing but not much else. The plot is lame, a bunch of popular (not necessarily good) actors trying to sell a tongue in cheek plot which looks to be something from the 60's acid days. Don't waste your money...
